I cannot rave enough about this tiny jewel. It is a simple restaurant with super cheerful staff. The menu was not huge but what we ordered were so delicious and authentic, we were blown away. There is apparently always a long wait, so do make reservations ahead of time.

This place has no ambiance and long waits but the food is worth the wait. The ingredients are fresh, the seasoning professional and the dishes are varied and tasty.

Long grain its a bit of a hole in the wall but the food is outstanding. Well priced and not touristy. Make a reservation as it's very small and popular. Highly recommend!

Ate at Long Grain with a friend last night. She eats there regularly. We walked in and took two empty seats at the bar. All is well. Ordered some rose, pad Thai, fish cakes and spicy clams. Food is excellent. Perfect amount of spice. About halfway through our meal a member of the staff asks us who seated us. We... More

I'm a "local" and eat here fairly often. The menu is so inviting, making it difficult to choose. The meal is always excellent, the service friendly and helpful. Long Grain is a culinary treat!

A new turn to hand with some just spectacular starters and specials. Chix Wings with a 1st class dipping sauce. Local squid just barely cooked in a broth. Steamers with a killer tomato and stock sauce. As well, there is local Rabbit in a fiery glaze. Duck Confit again in a tasty broth. Coconut Sorbet cools the burn after. Very... More

My husband and I stopped in last-minute one evening without a reservation, and we were able to get seats a small table near the back by the bar. We both ordered noodle dishes with spicy wings as an app. Our food was delicious—super flavorful and very homemade. We'd love to go back and try different dishes. The place was packed... More

Small Thai restaurant with bar (wine and beer) with limited seating. The food I ordered for takeout was phenomenal.... Thai mussels were fresh and very spicy. Beef curry was perfect, served with steamed rice. Have never eaten there due to limited seating and crowded environment, but have never been disappointed by food. Order early as they do get busy! Friendly... More
