Wonderful eclectic food. Great atmosphere. Spot on service. Wine list needs work!! Bustling with hungry humans. A delight to partake.

We were expecting a lot at Longrain and it exceeded those expectations. Lovely, interesting and tasty food, quality service, very cool interior, great location. Top marks. We had read that they didn't do tables for 2 or 4, only long communal tables or large group tables, but that was wrong. There were several tables for 2 and 4.

We dined at the round tables which had a nice stone lazy Susan. Not having been before we ordered the banquet meal. All the dishes were lovely and had a wonderful mix of spices and flavours. The fried pork was to die for and the lamb shank delightful. However all the dishes came out very quickly and they were fairly... More

The service was quite attentive. no complaints about the service. lovely place to dine. music was a little too loud. Ping Pong cocktail was too sour I could not drink it at all. I've been hearing good things about this restaurant so maybe I was expecting more from the food! The starfruit salad was almost good, it's only too sweet.... More

What can I say - wonderful. Very busy so you must book in but fantastic meals and worth a visit. There was 5 of us and we shared all five meals - great setup by the staff to allow this along with fantastic service all the way through

Although it's a busy room, it's got a great feel & even sitting at a communal table feels intimate. The efficient welcome by wait staff gets you sorted quickly. We had no booking so were ushered to the bar area for a short 10 minute wait with drinks. Once seated, we were seen to quickly & our meals didn't take... More

Dined at Longrain on a recent business trip to Melbourne. Second time visiting - both times excellent. Stylish ambience, and faultless service. This time started with the Betel Leaf w/ Trout - a lovely fresh start to the meal. For mains we shared the Blue Eye Jungle Curry which was extremely good, and the Hanger Steak - amazing, both with...

The FRESHEST and tastiest Thai ever. I could go on and on.. but just go there. As a couple we had to wait a little while and eat at the bar, but we didn't care it was so damn good. The egg net was my favourite. So simple. But SO TASTY! 💙💙💙

I love this restaurant but it has almost become a victim of its own success. In order to get a seat you really need to be there by 6pm, but don't be tempted to order to quickly, or you will be drinking your first cocktail at 5 minute past 6, and eating your entree before you have had a sip!...
