Top 10 Restaurants in Australia

Destination(s): Adelaide

Barbequed meat is an Australian obsession. However, most modern Australian cuisine is a product of the diverse immigrants who have settled there – a mix of British, Mediterranean, and Asian traditions, often using local seafood and livestock (once imported, raising livestock now represents a flourishing Australian industry). Drawing on the Australian restaurant scene’s natural cosmopolitanism, we’ve rounded up a list of some of the best restaurants in Australia: Jolleys Boathouse, for modern Australian food and South Australian wine by the riverside in Adelaide; the Hairy Canary, for Mediterranean-style grub and drinks in Melbourne; Rockpool, for fresh fish, seafood, and fine dining in Sydney; Longrain, for Thai cooking, communal tables, and modern decor in Sydney and Melbourne; The Wharf Restaurant, for international food and great views of Sydney, including the famous Opera House; Jackson’s Restaurant, for eclectic fine dining in Perth; and Jasmin Indian Resturant, for north Indian-style food and an elegant setting in Adelaide. read more about Top 10 Restaurants in Australia

Longrain

Longrain

  • 85 Commonwealth Street
  • Surry Hills
  • tel:61 2 9280 2888
  • Visit website
  • Sydney, 2010

Longrain is seriously hip, located between happening Surry Hills and the CBD. With very modern decor, and long tables (don't expect private tete-a-tete!) it boasts some of the best Thai in Sydney. The food is not the cheapest that you will find, but it is impeccable – the best and freshest ingredients prepared expertly and with love; it is widely considered to be one of the best Thai restaurants outside of the Kingdom of Thailand itself. There are no dinner bookings, and diners are asked to wait at the bar. It all happens in a large airy renovated space and is as cool as Sydney comes. Bookings are available only for lunch. And if are in Melbourne and want a touch of Longrain, step in at 44 Little Bourke Street; yes it is yet another Longrain sibling for you! read more about Longrain
