Got it Mojo back...go for GREAT food & cocktails

we used to be regulars at Longrain since it opened and then saw it go down in both food quality and service. We went last night and guess what it was BACK! The food taste was back, we had the whole fried snapper, absolutely delicious, the beef Penang curry was amazing. All downed with a few... read more

If Thai cuisine is to your taste then the Longrain is worth a try but bring lots of money. Three of us went on a Tuesday night service was good and prompt probably because it wasn't a full house. The décor is inviting and pleasant. While the food, we had a Blue eye curry, a Barramundi curry and the chargrilled... More

This well reviewed, very busy Thai restaurant was a big disppointment for me. Every dish contained far too much sugar.

Went to Longrain before live show. Explained that we had limited time -over 90 minutes. Was assured that this was not a problem. EVERYONE on our long table received their meal well before us and waiting staff did their best to remedy this. Mix up apparently. By the time our food arrived, we had 20 minutes to gulp down. Delcious... More

My daughter, who lives in Melbourne, treated us to a meal in this 'fine dining' take on Asian food. I can see why she likes it so much. The egg net salad was really fresh and the Vietnamese style dressing was perfectly balanced. The caramelised pork hock was delicious. Crisp on the outside and soft sweet meat. We also had... More

Expensive Thai fusion. Tasty but far from authentic, but then that's not what Longrain's about. Majority of seating is on long communal tables. It was so loud I spent the whole night straining to hear my dinner partner and yelling at her. Kept getting distracted by diners next to me, as they were shouting too. Waiting staff came to tell...

Apparently it's a 'Melbourne thing' to not take reservations.... I came here for dinner with a girlfriend and were greeted by a cute maître d with a good sense of humour... He asked if we minded sharing a table so we explained we hadn't seen each other for a few years and our conversation may not be PG ! He... More

Good service, attentive and showed knowledge of menu and wines. Limited menu - think this was a plus as each dish was prepared very well. Appropriately price. Would visit again.

We came across this Asian restaurant unexpectedly while looking for somewhere to eat. We were very pleasantly surprised - the wine bar to relax and have cocktails before moving to the table for dinner. Both our meals were excellent - Pork Belly and Barramundi - yum!! Will definitely return.
