Shortgrain is my new favourite lunch spot at the moment. Its so close to my work that i have ordered takeaway from here and its fast becoming a habit. The people are really friendly. Even when I called up to make an order they were so nice about it.
The food is excellent and really great value. Where else in Sydney can you get an awesome lunch for $20. I just love the trout and pork salad, its delicious. Also the curries are really good too. Like longrain, quality ingredients and produced are used which gets me every time.
My only gripe is that its not open on weekends but I am sure I will live. Looking forward to getting it tomorrow for lunch.
Great place near the city for lunch. Food is very tasty, heaps of flavour with a bit of a kick and quick. Try the pickled vegetables, they are sooo good..... A good and quick alternative to its sister restaurant, Longrain.
The little brother of LongGrain next door was impressive at today's luncheon. Probably best in small groups like 2-4 as the seating is few, or get there early. Small portion food, but the taste was great, a good curry served with divine tender meat.
Something different - coconuts on the menu - 'I Like'
Service was good, the food was served within minutes of ordering, but don't be wanting a coffee after your meal as they don't serve it.
It won't be the last time I venture to this establishment :)
Have been meaning to check this hot spot out for sometime now, always seemed to end up at the big brother restaurant next door instead. Finally got around to it today with our work crew, and currently feeling like I've been missing out on a brilliantly edible piece of life.
No table service, but it's intimate enough to feel the service first-hand. The chalkboard menu consists of a couple of curries, salads, and sides. The squid and pork belly was de-lish! Serving portions were spot on, not too much to make you feel sluggish after a work lunch. Pricing is on par with what you'd expect - about $16-$18 for a feed, plus drinks and sides.
They also do private functions, which looks like a pretty neat idea for a group of friends. $65 banquet plus drinks, with a selection of wines, beers and punch! Great idea.
To note: They don't serve coffee, however the coconut drink did entice some of our team. Pleased I finally got there in the end.
I'm a huge fan of Longrain and Shortgrain is definitely a "shorter" version its parent. It was like a cafe version of Longrain. It was very novelty and cute, the food was tasty and a good portion size. More variety in drinks would've been good. Three stars from me.
This nice little place, attached to Longrain has a fantastic menu for light lunches. It's not cheap, but good value for the qualtiy. I had the squid and pork belly salad, which was delicious. Can't call it a cafe as it doesn't do coffee.
