I visited with some work colleagues very last minute. We managed to score a table and enjoyed some yummy food. The specialty pork dish was not what I expected but delicious and the jungle curry really different from what I have had and cooked. The corn in it was a real treat.

The meal here was so good I went back on my next visit to Melbourne. The second visit did not disappoint - and may even have been better. Cocktails, food, wine - magnificent...

Great thai/Asian fusion combinations. Meat, fish, chicken and more. And a great wine menu to complement.

Food and service was great. Pork Hock was favourite dish. Kid friendly too which was bonus as travelling with 4month old and 2 year old.

Wasn't my first time dining here. Absolute favourite restaurant in Melbourne! This restaurant doesn't take reservation, it can be a long waiting during weekend. This modern Thai Asian Fusion cuisine will blow you away with the simplicity but yet intense flavours in a great presentations of all dishes. My favourites are the Poached Coconut Chicken, Mussaman Beef Curry, Deep Fried... More

on entry to Longrain we were surprised to see a lively energetic restaurant, it was Saturday night, we didn't have a reservation but managed to get a space straight away. We were taken to a long table where you sit adjacent and opposite to others, maybe not for everyone but we found it fine. There are other round tables for... More

We sat at the bar which was great fun. The cocktails were unique, infused with Thai flavours. We shared red veggie and jungle curries and both were delicious. Great ambience. Would thoroughly recommend.

Went to this place for a dinner with my business colleagues and it was amazing. The ambience is just perfect and is ideal for business outings. The staff is very hospitable and offer to take your bags and any jackets etc to the cloakroom. This was a sweet gesture and set them apart. One feels so comfortable. The lighting is... More

Every time I am in Melbourne, a visit to Longrain has long been a priority. The food is amazingly good, service outstanding and the atmosphere busy and vibrant. Don't go there for a quiet chat though, it's just not that kind of place. You may have to sit at the bar to wait for a table but you can order... More
