Yum

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.

I love the food here. Fresh, inventive and really does hit the 'sweet, salty, sour and chilli' in one mouthfull. I had previously been with a large party of people and, given we were all so pleased to see each other and be in Melbourne, probably did not notice the level of noise. This time I took my partner and... More

I came here for a dinner few weeks ago for my birthday, and after few visits it has been and still my favourite restaurant, but what makes it memorable last time is because of the service I had. The girl, Olga who served us that night has been very amazing, and what she did just made my birthday dinner experience... More

Enjoyed dinner at Longrain last night. Asian food in Melbourne has come a long way since taking your own saucepans to the local Chinese takeaway all those years ago. This place has a great feel staff are well trained, knowledgable about the food and attentive. Food was amazing. Started with the oysters. Compared to oysters we enjoyed in Smokey Bay... More

Longrain is the reason I can't live in an apartment in the city, I'd go here for dinner every night. The pork belly is to die for and the egg net is delicious also. Staff are lovely and attentive.

We went for dinner with friends and really enjoyed the food which was very tasty. The green Thai pumpkin curry was delicious if a little hot for a couple of people in our group. Many of the dishes were spicy hot so I would suggest carefully selecting the dishes if you aren't great with hot food. Great ambience, very friendly... More
