Description: Welcome to Longrain, Melbourne. Our menu brings together South East Asian influences with the best Victorian produce. Inspired by the communal eating philosophy of the Asian table, our menu is made up of dishes created for sharing. Large servings and communal tables encourage the spirit of eating together, so you can try each dish as part of a full tasting experience, just as it was intended. The wine and cocktail list is created to work in harmony with the menu's intense and aromatic flavours.

We had 4 nights in Melbourne at the beginning of March for our 5th wedding anniversary... as expected when in Melbourne we had some great food and the choices were just endless, but our dinner at Longrain was the favourite of the trip! Both the food and service were excellent, but the fun way of seating and the atmosphere was what put it above the rest! It was a Sunday night and not early, but it was going off! After some amazing shared starters and a couple of great mojitos we had the yellow curry - which was the hottest I've ever eaten - but I loved it as the flavours were amazing! However the best was yet to come - the caramel custard dessert which came with a wafer straw - we shared it and agreed it was the best dessert ever! And thats saying something, there have been a lot of great desserts over the years!! We will definitely return whenever we are lucky enough to visit Melbourne again.

Really nice place and nice food. The service was perfect, like the food. Not a huge fan of asian food but Longrain made me change my mind.

We love Longrain, whether it's just my husband and myself, a group of friends or an early dinner with our kids the foods and cocktails are always divine. We ate here on Good Friday with our 2 kids and another family of 5 totalling 4 adults and 5 kids in all. Because it was early and still quiet we were seated at one of the round tables which was perfect. Once again we were assisted by the very talented Costa who goes out of his way to make sure our kids are happy with their 'mocktails' etc, nothing seems to be too much trouble for him whenever we have dined here with our children.
We never once felt rushed and after dinner us adults wanted one more cocktail and they happily moved our group to seats at the bar for another drink.

Tip: if you're dining with kids although its not on the menu when asked they do a fabulous kids fried rice ( nice enough to want to steal from the kids)

I went here for my birthday dinner while travelling in Melbourne with friends. They had been going on about Longrain for ages as this amazing place we had to go! It did not disappoint. This place is amazing. The food is absolutely delicious. The wine selection was great and the service was wonderful. I would highly recommend Longrain!

We've been to the Sydney Longrain quite a few times so were familiar with the format. The food and cocktails are delicious and the service is fantastic. The wine list is good. We arrived at 5.30 as they don't take bookings. The restaurant is noisy due to the acoustics and the music. We are always interested in whether a restaurant is suitable for children as we still love to eat at nice places with kids. There were quite a few people with kids which was good to see and this shoudn't really bother anyone else too much as the restaurant is so noisy anyway. I did see one child with her hands over her ears so it might be too much for the kids. The service is so prompt that you could be in and out by 6.30 and it would be handy for pre-theatre foods/drinks.
Will be back as the food is so good.
