Long Kin is a Thai restaurant situated in Pyrmont that does a range of traditional and modern Thai dishes for lunch and dinner. “Long Kin” means “try eat” in Thai and this is exactly what we set out to do when we visited for dinner.
To start off with, we ordered the Duck pancakes which were Thai rice paper rolls with roasted duck, scallion and hoisin sauce. This was the perfect entree, the duck was cooked well and went perfectly with the hoisin sauce and fluffy pancakes.
I also ordered the Absolut Raspberri Blimey cocktail with vodka, raspberries and sugar syrup. This was a delicious and refreshing cocktail, with strong sour raspberry flavour, balanced out by the sugar syrup.
For our mains, we ordered the pineapple fried rice; Turmeric fried rice with chicken cooked with soy sauce, carrot, pineapple, onion and cashew with pork floss, served in a whole pineapple. I really enjoyed how inventive the presentation of this dish was and it tasted great too, the chicken and prawns were delicious and the pineapple added a great sweetness to the dish, while the cashews were nice and crunchy.
We then ordered the wok fried crispy pork belly with Chinese broccoli in oyster sauce. I am a huge fan of pork belly and this was exactly what I expected, the pork was so fatty and melted in your mouth. However I found the dish a tad salty and it would have gone better with some plain rice.
We also ordered the Wagyu beef salad which consisted of Grilled marinated wagyu beef with chilli, spring onion and mint in lime dressing. This was a great salad, the wagyu beef was tender and well marinated and the chili gave it a great kick while the lime dressing was nice and refreshing.
For dessert, we ordered the Banana roti served with a scoop of chocolate ice cream. I loved how the roti was so crispy and warm, perfectly contrasted by the creamy and smooth ice cream.
Overall, Long Kin is a great new Thai restaurant in Pyrmont, with a great modern decor and ambiance, it is definitely worth trying if you are lover of authentic and modern Thai cuisine!
