Its been a long time since I last dined at Longrain and I was not disappointed. As always the hardest thing was choosing what to order from the well thought out menu. But with 10 diners and nine mains the choice was easy - we ordered one of each and one side and shared. Every meal was flavoursome and well... More

We dined here before a show, and found the service and the food most enjoyable. The staff were helpful and friendly, and (as expected) were understanding of the time constraints. The seating at long tables was arranged so that we had no sense of sitting too close to neighbours, which had been an earlier concern.

The food, decore, service and staff are all top notch at this iconic Melbourne eatery. If you haven't been then get along and enjoy the atmosphere on a busy Friday or Saturday night, with tunes pumping and people lining up the door for a table, along with the general buzz and excitement about the place. However if you have dined... More

After watching "Once" at the Princess Theatre, we walked along Little Burke Street looking for late dinner. We walked into Longrain, and got instant service at a long table. It has been a few years since we were here, and the setting is still the same. The service was fast and great. We ordered three dishes. The papaya salad was... More

Having dined at the Sydney version and been very happy, my first visit to the Melbourne version was also very good

I have eaten here many times, it is one of my favorite "go to" restaurants when visiting Melbourne. The food is always great and the variety to choose from means you can always find what you feel like. The menu does change and it can be disappointing if you are looking for the dish you had last time but I... More

Attempted to get into Chin Chin and due to the ridiculous wait we went here and we're not disappointed. Great creations of traditional dishes, and cocktails were great. Service was well attended and fun!

Visited this restaurant with a large group. There was a nice decor and ambience. While food was very nicely cooked and presented and quite frankly, delicious, the wait staff were arrogant, attended to our needs begrudgingly, explained the choices very poorly and really let down the chefs and owner down in a bad way. This had been highly recommended to... More

A group of seven of us shared the banquet, it was amazing value considering there was wine and cocktails also on the account, and the food just kept coming. The food was amazing, it's not something you can eat all of the time as there are very rich flavours, but it was very special. The staff were lovely and we... More

A great atmosphere awaits you in this great looking restaurant! The long tables lead you to talking to those decide you. About what you ask! Well it has to be the food! Beautiful!
