Music too loud

The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Our only criticism is that the music was very loud with a heavy base beat. Our group ages ranged from 11 to 74 years and no one could hear each other talk, nor could we hear the wait staff explain what dishes they were serving. It was a real... read more

It offers some unique Thai dishes or different way of presentation of a traditional Thai dish. For a Thai national, the taste is acceptable, but the prices are a bit on the expensive side.

Arrived early Saturday evening without a booking to see if we could squeeze in. From the moment we entered we were treated like we were important to them - a truly great feeling. The restaurant was very busy, but well ordered and the atmosphere was calm and the background music perfect. We had a glass of wine at a small... More

Awesome food - great for sharing with friends. Went back the next night as it was so good. Loved the Penang curry, and the egg net is sensational!

From the moment we (a couple) arrived, we were extremely well treated. The space was set up so that you could comfortably have a drink that wasn't sitting at the bar whilst waiting for a table to be made ready. The bar food were snippets of the larger menu and were amazing. Wine was expensive. The wait staff made the... More

Quite a bit of luck to get a table with a "walk up" on Mothers Day. Busy but well waited upon. Food delicious, good wine list.

While Melbourne has 1,000's of great restaurants, the idea of hanging out on a footpath for an hour doesn't appeal. We got to Longrain early - 5.30 - had a drink at the bar and were then shown to a great table where we had a fabulous dinner. Our waitress was knowledgeable and caring (one of our party has a...

Longrain is a large contemporary restaurant in Chinatown in Melbourne's CBD. They do not take reservations for groups smaller than 6+ but luckily we were in town and wanting an early dinner so we arrived at about 5:40pm as they were opening. We were given a seat and the drinks menu in the bar area, but moved to a dining... More

Four of us visited longrain for dinner and were not dissappointed . Service was excellent and professional but still friendly. All our dishes were tastey and impressive. A good wine selection and cocktails. If I only had one night and had to choose I think ginger boy would get my pick but only just.

Really great food and thoughtful service. Silken tofu changed my view about tofu for ever. Staff thought outside the square to get our party of 6 in on a Saturday night without a booking.
