For us, it wasn't just the food that made the dinner, but the awesome waiter who we got. He was willing to offer opinions on the dishes, how much we should be ordering, was able to be flexible on sizes of plates and was very attentive without being over the top. The advice on dessert made the evening - we... More

My wife and I went for dinner. We had to wait about 30 minutes before being seated at the bar, but we had drinks and snacks while waiting. The service was excellent, and the person serving us from behind the bar was very knowledgeable and helped us with our order. The food was very good, as was the service. Would... More

Went here a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. Had the duck and pork belly. Absolutely mouthwatering. Good service & the atmosphere was great. Dessert was to die for! Will be back next time I visit Melbourne!

First night in Melbourne we went to Longrain and it was fantastic. We had betel leaves with pomelo and crab to start. Then we had caramelised pork hock and beef with tomatoes and the papaya salad. The balance is magic and we had all our expectations exceeded. The service was excellent with the waitress recommending the beef dish as it... More

A group of four of us went to Longrain after reading the many great reviews on TA as well as being highly recommended by another friend. Overall I was quiet underwhelmed by Longrain. We ordered their signature dish eggnet as well as the beef cheeks, pumpkin curry and pork hock. The eggnet I found to be lacking in flavour, the... More

Very busy bar and restaurant, but prompt, efficient and friendly service from the minute we arrived. Great cocktails - I highly recommend the Coconut and Chilli Martini! We had Betel Leaves with Crab whilst waiting for a table, they were delicious. The staff recommended 5 mains and 2 sides for 7 of us and it was just right. The whole... More

Great food with excellent service by friendly staff, the good kept on coming out and we kept eating it. It's a must visit if staying in town but be warned it's very popular so sometimes you have to wait.

Great bar, beautiful food with the best Thai style flavours. Shared tables, normally a bit too much background noise but a great place for a treat.
