Camden is overrun by tourists in the summer. Finding decent food can be a bit of a struggle because there is a lot of uninspired food, lines and waits for tables, and high prices. Long Grain is usually filled with diners, so Westie2 is right that reservations are important if you want to be sure of a table. I can't... More

Spiced, minced chicken was excellent, although could have had a better chicken-to-rice ratio. Pork stir fry was excellent. Farmer greens with tofu -- excellent greens. Tofu was completely bland. Mackerel fried rice was excellent. I wished they'd provided Thai-style utensils (fork + large spoon) instead of metal Korean chopsticks. I'm sure they'd have been brought had I thought to ask....

Advance reservations are a must, but difficult to obtain because no one seems to answer the phone during the day at this popular Thai restaurant. We had to make ours in person during lunch on the day prior so we ended seated at the counter at 6:30PM. Not a problem though a back-up in the kitchen developed causing us to... More

I highly recommend the crab fried rice as well as the spring... More

Good, simple, honest asian food. Loved the Maine Crab Fried Rice! The bar has a good wine list and prices are fair. Make a reservation.

This is my fourth summer dining at Long Grain and it has not disappointed. While service can be slow and wait time is sometimes an issue, the wait staff is friendly and attentive. Everything is cooked to order, and flavors are unique and delicious. The rice cakes are a wonderful appetizer to share, and a favorite dish is the wide... More

Long Grain has a cozy interior,and great dishes! We tried Panang Curry and Chiang Mai Curry Noodles - and they (esp. the Nodles) were both the best we've had outside Thailand yet! The restaurant is always busy,make a reservation.

While waiting for our meal a forager came in with huge baskets of fresh mushrooms for the chef to select. Just an indicator of the quality of the food. I have heard of this restaurant for a few years and never quite got there before. Reservations are a must as the place is tiny but the food, totally worth it.... More

Wonderful food. Friendly, cozy atmosphere. I was a walk-in and they found me a spot at the bar. Could tell the food was high quality. And my Panang Beef was so tender I could shred it with chopsticks.
