My wife and I had a delightful meal at Long Grain. We started with the Thai beef salad that was excellent with a bit of spice, but not mouth on fire spice. For our main course, we shared the Thai wide noodles and the crab fried rice. Both were very good and the portions were quite large. A really enjoyable... More

Super popular place - either make a reservation a few days in advance during high season or be prepared to wait. The popularity is justified because they food is very good and I assume quite authentic. Dumplings were excellent although a somewhat small serving. Pad Ke Mao and the green curry were also good, although a bit too spicy. We... More

Long Grain has been our go-to, top-of-the-list restaurant in Camden since its inception. We savor the Asian cuisine, the quaint unpretentious setting, and reasonable prices. But last night's experience was extremely dissatisfying and we will not return again any time soon. The service was friendly as always but agonizingly, inexcusably slow. Our waitress made many brief trips to our table... More

The food was very high in salt although they did use a lot of fresh herbs. They take a lot more people than they can handle so the service can be neglected. This place is okay for a take out if you are wanting different flavors.

Fantastic food! Inspired, authentic and delicious! The chive rice cakes are one the the best bites I have ever had. Recently enjoyed the wide noodle dish with sweet soy sauce and chicken. Everything is good! I am a "clean plate club member" at this place!
