Excellent noodkes

We had dropped by a couple of nights ago and they were booked. This meal was well worth coming back for - excellent rice noodles and wild rice. We eat vegan or vegetarian when we can.

My husband and I had great expectations for Long Grain after the terrific reviews. It is rare that I post highly unfavorable reviews, but in this case, I'm hoping the owners take note and perhaps do something about it. It all started because we were seated next to the stairs that lead to the bathroom. Because of the traffic, we... More

WOW - this place does not disappoint. I loved the coconut soup (with tofu), rice cakes, mussles, and Pad Saew. Everything was fantastic. My mom had the crab fried rice and my dad got a pepper dish. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals! **** MAKE A RESERVATION BEFOREHAND!

Ordered to go and really enjoyed the whole Meal; Coconut soup, pad thai w/chicken, Spring rolls, and Maine crab fried rice. All of our order was delicious but the coconut soup was tops. Too difficult to get seating so on a rainy night there is absolutely nothing better or tastier than Long Grain's to go.

The rave reviews say it all and, unlike some other less good eating out experiences we have had in Camden, this unassuming little restaurant really delivered and met our high expectations! Yes we booked ahead and took seats at the bar which was fun and enabled us to observe how incredibly hard and efficiently the team of ladies worked in... More

Reservations were needed even to sit at the bar area of this small, busy, delicious Thai/Vietnamese restaurant. The Spring Rolls, Coconut Soup with chicken, and Thai Beef salad that I had was all excellent. The two others with me agreed that what they had was great. Food: 5/5 Décor: 4/5 with cloth napkins Cost: $$ or $98.16 including tip. Value:... More

There is no sign, the exterior is run down, reservations are mandatory, and the interior is crowded, but do not let any of this deter you from dining at Long Grain. Do make reservations in advance a few weeks in advance or expect to be turned away at the door as we witnessed over and over on the Tuesday night... More

I dream of Long Grain! I can't wait for my next visit to Camden for this amazing restaurant. This is the best Thai food I've ever had! Vegetarians rejoice! This restaurant is very veg friendly, which can be hard to find in Maine. The dishes are creative and delicious! I especially love the super wide noodles they use in their... More

First, be sure to make a reservation. We did and got in, but others who tried to walk in were told the restaurant was booked until closing, even at the bar, and this was a Tuesday evening. This is a GREAT Thai restaurant. They had some of the usual things one would find at a Thai place, but they had... More

Some of the best thai food I've ever had in my life. If they would deliver this to our home in Brooklyn, we could eat this every night. Super fresh ingredients, quick service and cute/casual atmosphere. Can't say enough about this place. Would kill to go back here!
