A friend recommended this place to me and a couple of coworkers so of course we went one day for dinner. Walking in, you just take notice of the great atmosphere the restaurant offers which is made even better by everyone that works there. Very attentive and friendly staff. One of my coworkers is allergic to gluten and for every... More

Cheekily we tried to get in on the night before Grand Final. Hoping for the best, expecting the worst. Fortunately, amazing staff through dexterity, skill and never being in the box sat our table of 6 within 5 mins. So adjectives: attentive, delicious, intriguing, private, delightful. Such a great foodie evening. Highlights: fresh oysters, beef cheeks, prawns and the amazing... More

Longain don't take booking for under 6 people and since I wanted to go there for my birthday on grand final night - I was able to rustle up a couple of extra friends to make sure I got a table. Otherwise its first in best dressed you just wait for a table or sit at a communal table. So... More

Just to start, I love Asian food, Asian wife, sensational cook and beautiful food. Went to Longrain to celebrate a mate's birthday. The meal was okay, I think the best part being the snapper, and the sensational birds nest salad, that was beautiful but the rest was average I thought. Very small oysters @ $38 a dozen, and the other... More

On route to theatre & as a solo diner, I could only eat at the bar. However, the menu is innovative & successfully realised, the wine by the glass is well selected & it's fun to perch there & listen to the rising tones of large tables having a great time with Longrain's exciting offerings.

Wonderful experience at the restaurant. My friend and I did not make any reservation on the day. Luckily, the waitress was so helpful and squeezed two seats for us. We like the interior decoration, food presentation, we like the prawn -- yummy!

Cant put my finger on it but it just doesnt match the Sydney version...atmosphere is different, service not as good and my fave cocktail was missing from the list. Food still great but nect time will try somewhere else when in Melbourne and save Longrain for Sydney

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
