The food was very good!

Our table had 4 different meals and each plate had a different taste and smell. It was very good. The service was quick and the atmosphere was nice and quiet. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Long Grain is wonderfully small, modestly decorated, and always packed. I sat at the bar (reservations recommended, even at the bar) and was truly blown away by everything that I ate. I had heard a lot of praise, and because of that, part of me expected it to not meet these expectations. I was wrong...it was amazing. The Nam Tok... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat, ever. Every time I go to the mid coast it is top of my list of things to do. The favors are outstanding, but built with wonderfully simple and tasty ingredients. The mussels appetizer with coconut milk is outstanding. The place is small and really popular so book a table or... More

In spite of our friends making a reservation two weeks ago, we waited by the entrance of the restaurant for forty minutes for our table. The restaurant is very small and it was very crowded, a large number of people were coming and going picking up orders to go by the bar. From the moment we sat down, our waitress... More

Fresh and tasty spring rolls, gracious and interactive waiter (just right engagement), and uniquely fine entrees. This is not an Americanized eastern restaurant. My only complaint is minor. I ate on a frigid night, and there was a cold draft when diners entered.

Long Grain is inventive, creative, and down right some of the best Thai food I have ever had. My Mum and I came here on our trip BACK to Camden (it was closed during the International Film Fest weekend), and I'm so glad that we did. We stopped in for lunch on Saturday, busy, but we got a table. We... More

After several weeks of intending to write a long overdue homage to Long Grain in Camden I'm finally getting to it. I have periodically seen folks asking the members of this group to recommend Thai or Asian options, and while the local selection is fairly succinct, we are lucky to have some of the best Asian cuisine available north of...

Very small place and Reservations are a must during the summer. So plan ahead because it is worth it. But if you cAnt plan ahead, takeout is fast and just a tasty. So very, very good

Tough to say anything that hasn't already been said but its just plain awesome food. I would recommend the Rice Cakes for an appetizer, the sauce is amazing! Pad Seaw or Chinese Yellow Noodles for dinner if you can't do spicy and Pad Ke Mao if spicy is your thing. Anything with the pork belly is amazing and they will... More
