Homemade noodles were fantastic. Great wine too! My wife got the daily homemade noodles with chicken in a soy based sauce (pretty sure it was soy) and it was awesome. The noodles had great texture and really made the dish. My ramen was fantastic with one of the best broths I've had. We ate a coconut curry appetizer for desert.... More

So glad I made a reservation in advance. Super casual and quite small. Waitstaff was very friendly and helped us with decisions because it all looked so good. Still dreaming about those homemade noodles!!!!!

We shared the eggplant starter which was really great. Then my wife had the noodle dish which was made with fresh ingredients and homemade wide noodles

We were standing outside the door looking at the menu when this lady came out with her takeout and raved about how this place was a local favorite. She was so enthusiastic about it that we pretty much had to try the place. I got the Maine crab fried rice and my boyfriend got the kimchi pork belly rice cakes.... More

Westie2 has it right! We made a reservation at lunchtime for that same evening and we had to go early or late. But there is a very simple reason for this! They are really good, nay excellent, at what they do. We were just out of season so the big pressure was off but still several parties were sadly turned... More

There is little I can add to the glowing reviews (here and in the national press) about this extraordinary outpost of Vietnamese cooking in the "middle of nowhere". If LG were in Manhattan, the place would be booked for the next year, so I guess we should take some pleasure in knowing that, except for long holiday weekends in the... More

Truly outstandingly delicious Asian cooking. Attractive surroundings. I would have given a 5 star if the service had not been 'apathetic'. I told the waitress that I had found a dead fly in my soup, she commented that it would add protein. Not a very professional response and a bad let down on what was an absolutely delicious meal.

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
