A great place to eat modern Thai food. The menu is a bit expensive but you'll get a quality surroundings. Good staff as well, they are approachable and seems they love what they are doing.

From the contemporary interior design, to the high level of service they have really captured the essence of what makes Melbourne one of the best places in the world for dining out. A culinary experience not to be missed for the modern diner. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for and more. I would recommend ordering several... More

From the greeting, to the food choice and quality of the service we had a very good experience at Longrain. Although I feel the menu is expensive, it almost lives up to the price. The pork hock was nice but a little over-powered by sweetness. The beef check was delicious. Following a recent very ordinary service experience at Chin Chin,... More

It has been a long time since I had such good modern Thai food. Not cheap but you get quality fine-dining in laid-back surroundings. I tried daily specials, beef eye fillet and a whole snapper, seasoned and deep fried to perfection. The dessert was another yummy daily special of black glutinous rice with fresh mango and pomegranate seeds. Every mouthful... More

I had wanted to go to Longrain for many years. I guess I was disappointed. The food was ok but not as special as I was expecting. The staff were ok but were in no way prepared to cater to requests. All in all an average meal. I think maybe it would have been better if you were with a... More

Went on a Sunday night, so the crowds were down. Great food. Snappy and friendly service. Good wines by the glass. Very happy to have gone.

We called in here for cocktails before dinner. The ladies had the Red Dragon (always good), and a Dirty Russian. My friend and I had our usual gin martini - Tanqueray 10, very dry, 3 olives. We both think these are possibly the best martinis in Sydney or Melbourne. Let me know if you know somewhere you think is better!... More

Advice from a local: food at the bar is wonderful. I recommend crispy tofu salad coupled with a cold Tiger beer - under $20. Very helpful staff.
