We were so lucky to have Kitti look after us. His knowledge of the menu meant that we could be guided through the menu by a confident and knowledgable person. We shared 3 dishes and a lovely bottle of Riesling, having had a champers and a beer to start. A must-go-to place to eat!!!

Visited Longrain following a recommendation. Certainly a different take on Thai cuisine but the food was superb. The combination of flavours was just incredible. Best I've had recently. If you are looking for mainstream SE Asian cuisine this may not be for you and it is more expensive too. Would certainly go back again if Melbourne.

It's been sometime since I've been to Longrain but my memories were great. We were seated straight away and from start to finish everything was excellent. Our friendly waitress gave us some great menu tips which included a de constructed snapper dish which was simply divine. The tuna sashimi was also superb. Our dessert didn't arrive but after a brief,... More

We didnt have a booking however the staff suggested a fantastic cocktail whilst we waited (like 10mins) and then taken to our table. The food was just so yummy and the whole fish presentation was amazing! The staff were terrific with a relaxed but courteous and efficient manner....and finally the bill was very reasonable!

A group of 9 went to this restaurant where we were seated at quite a large round table with a built in lazy susan. We ordered a variety of main and rice dishes including the tie fried pork belly with mussels, caramelised pork hock, twice cooked chicken and slow braised beef cheeks. Each dish was excellent, very tasty and not... More

There are restrictions on bookings. There were four of us and we could not book. We dined early and there was no waiting. We were seated at a long table with 2/3 other groups. Don't be put off by this. We were not interfered with by the other groups and nor did we interfere with them (I hope). Our waitress... More

I have been to Longrain twice now and it is by far the best food that I have ever had. I am not sure what they do; however, this food is simply amazing and there is nothing else like it. If you want a taste of heaven, then you must go to Longrain as this will be something that you... More

We attended early on a Friday night and the place was already 3/4 full. The service from the floor and bar staff was outstanding for entire evening. Food is superb - incredibly tasty, the freshest ingredients and decent sized servings. The salt and pepper silken tofu was outstanding. Highly recommended and will definitely return.

It is now becoming very popular in major cities like Sydney and Melbourne to have Asian fusion restaurants, not the real stuff, copy pretentious versions eg Mr Wong, Chin Chin, Longrain. Loud music, sweet dishes, very little spice and light Thai herb flavors. Tasted more Chinese than Thai. Caramelized pork hock, papaya salad are palatable. They have long or round... More

I was fortunate to he a guest in this atmospheric restaurant. The menu was a degustation of entrees, salads, curries & desserts. There were many vegetarian options also. The service was extremely attentive and the revolving marble table centres provided easy access to the dishes. There was a very wide choice of alcoholic beverages served by knowledgeable staff .
