Chef and restaurateur David Thompson has confirmed he is bringing his Thai street food restaurant, Long Chim, to Sydney.

Thompson and his partners have combined once again with FJM Property to develop and operate the Sydney venue.

Located in a former storage basement underneath 10-14 Martin Place, Long Chim’s entrance is on Angel Place in Sydney’s CBD. The 190-seat restaurant and bar will feature multiple levels and includes a large open plan kitchen, a cocktail bar, and a mix of intimate dining alcoves, communal style tables and counter seats. The space has been designed by Kelly Ross of The Gentry and will feature collaborative work by Thai and Australia-based artists.

Says Thompson, “At Long Chim we want to capture all the excitement and tastes of the streets of Bangkok. Long Chim is intended to be fun, ‘sanuk’ as the Thais say, with food and drinks that everyone loves. Our menu will have the dishes that many Thais miss the most when away from home.”

Long Chim Sydney joins the existing venues in Perth and Singapore. Doors are expected to open mid-August.
