“Prob my fave in Melb. Just do it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

I have a real leaning towards Mediterranean food, but this is probably my fave restaurant in Melb. Clean, fresh flavours. Spicy yes, but is a Thai restaurant and whilst I don't dislike heat, I'm not a fan when it overpowers. This not the case here. Service attentive, cocktails great and deserts are excellent for an Asian restaurant. No booking policy a negative for parties less than six, however if you get there within an hour of open the wait should not be too long, if at all.

“Good Thai Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Longrain is a good Thai restaurant with an excellent variety of dishes. The restaurant has a good lively atmosphere and nice decor. I have been several times and never had a poor meal. However, the food is a bit too sweet to be really authentic. I prefer a bit more salty/sour balance in the food but still keep going back because really great Thai restaurants are hard to find outside of Thailand.

“Seriously spicy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

I like hot food but I found 3 out of 4 dishes too spicy. Wasn't expecting to have to ask for a mild version, never do. Couldn't really taste the food. Pork hock rocked. Beef curry short on the meat. Loads of sauce. Awesome passion fruit cocktail whilst waiting. Visit again ? No.

Single business lady travelling and was welcomed fantastically. Great food and really reasonable for one hat restaurant. No waiting at the bar for a place. Staff are super friendly.
