My 17 year old daughter dined here on a 4 day stay in Melbourne. It came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. I knew we needed to go early so arrived 6.45, we had a drink in the bar first before our table was ready. Had a really helpful waiter, thanks to him we made great choices and every single dish...

What started out as a quick drink downstairs turned into a wonderful evening of great food and wine. The downstairs bar has a relaxed and understated vibe and just invited us to stay a little longer and have something to eat upstairs. We went "off-piste" from our normal favourites and chose Salt and Pepper Tofu, Pork Hock and Crispy Fried... More

What an experience. Longrain deliver the best Thai food that I have ever had, indeed one of the better restaurant experiences. We went along on a Friday night, at seven thirty, so expected a wait, but to our surprise we were sat immediately. It wasn't as busy as we anticipated, with only a few people having to wait and one... More

After having heard great things about Longrain we expected it to be really good and to be fair to say, don't think it was quite as great as the hype made it out to be. In saying that the food was still good with some really great dishes and the staff were really fantastic

My husband and I had a rare date night at Longrain. We really enjoyed our evening. The cocktails were innovative and delicious. We enjoyed the buzzing atmosphere and we felt the communal dining experience adds to the fun. It's not a quiet and intimate place, think energised, dark and atmospheric. Our food was delicious and we were sorry when it... More

South East Asian fusion at a new level! The menu was brilliant…the most difficult part was trying to limit the number of items we ordered to what 2 normal people might eat. We started with Betel leaf, smoked river trout, peanut, green papaya, mint. Do not, I repeat, do not miss this item. This little jewel was an explosive starter... More

This was my third visit to Longrain. We just love the food. Probably a bit off the beaten track for visitors to Sydney but well worth the effort. Be prepared to pay $100 a head for wine with entrees, mains and desserts, all made to share. Don't miss the eggnet. The lamb curry was a bit fatty and salty for... More

OMG...one of the nicest restaurants i have been to. The bar downstairs was nice for a pre dinner drink. And once upstairs for dinner, the waitress was most helpful in helping us decide what to eat. The beef....yum. The calamari...yum. The egg basket....yum. They also do half serves of certain of some dishes, so if you want to try a... More

Dinner at Longrain was a treat from a friend, five of us on a Friday night, rocked up by 6:30 as you need large parties to make a booking. We were seated on a semi circle banquet, water ordered and checked out the menu. Wow, it sounded fantastic. We ordered some wine and prawn cashew and pork balls on pineapple... More
