Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

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.

“Yeah I get all the hype but ...”
Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful surrounds and decor combine to make this a great dining experience. Yes the food was of good quality and service very attentive, but in all honesty considering the prices the food at Chin Chin is far superior. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the flavours and experience with the atmosphere at Chin Chin no way comes near to the standards at Longrain, when it comes down to the food, my preference for a great Thai meal would be at Chin Chin.

“Genius”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Mind blowing flavours, EXCELLENT service, extremely nice atmosphere, and very well priced. (You would normally expect to pay almost twice as much for the quality and service in Melbourne!). An easy 10/10 overall when compared with other 1 hat restaurants.

“Amazing Thai Food”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Was there last night (Saturday) with my wife. Was recommended by a friend and we knew that we would be in for a wait before arriving. Upon arrival were told that it would be a 1.5 hour wait. As we'd made a pact to go we waited and had a couple of drinks at the bar. Mohito's and a couple of beers. Drink Service was prompt and staff were quick to offer additional drinks. Well, the wait was well worth it. We shares two mains. A cold prawn peanut salad with egg net and bean sprouts. Was a bit dubious about a cold salad with prawns however, the taste was divine. Other main was a pork belly, octopus and mussel in black bean sauce. Hint of chilli and the flavours were a taste sensation. If you are comfortable with waiting and having a few drinks it is truly worth the wait. This place ticks all the boxes. Fast efficient service and top quality fresh food. Longrain rocks Melbourne. Keep up the great work.

“Food is to die for!!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

All the food we ate was amazing!!! Beatle leaves, whole flounder, lamb and green curry beef....mmmmm. I don't mind communal dinning however, the tables are very wide so difficult to hear friends.. Worth the trip however!!
