I was looking forward to some great food but left feeling disappointed. This place has a good selection of beers and nice wines. A limited cocktail list as well but I suspect you can order any classics you might want. The dinner menu, especially the starter options, was fairly limited in number. As I was on my own I asked...

Had dinner there on Friday night . The food was average Fusion Thai. The waiters were efficient but uninterested. The drinks were good. They add a 10% gratuity to your bill which is presumptuous. All in all too much money for average food..

Dear Asheen, Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. We are very disappointed to hear that you felt that the service and food was average. We only add a discretionary 10% gratuity to large groups of 10 people or more, this is disclosed when a booking is made and an email is sent to confirm our policy. Are... More

I hadn't been to Longrain for a couple of years. It's a mighty slick operation. The food is excellent. Extremely tasty modern Asian food. Decent sized servings as well. We had the fish of the day - deep fried snapper I think. Plus a green curry with chicken and a yellow curry with vegetables including broccolini and eggplant. Each of... More

Came back here with the wife and it was great again. Visited on Saturday at 12:30pm and it was full. We put our name on waiting list and waited in the foyer with a take out coffee. They told us we would have to wait about 20 which was correct. There were places to sit and wait until we were... More

Hi Paul, This place sounds amazing! You have certainly sold me on the thick cut bacon and haloumi pumpkin fritter! But unfortunately, this is not us. We are a Thai restaurant open evenings for dinner. We hope to welcome you here some time! The Longrain Team. More

Decided to try Longrain on recommendation and was not disappointed. As I was travelling solo I could not book but enjoyed a drink from the bar while waiting but did not need to wait long until a seat at the bar was arranged. The fusion of amazing flavours in my meal just created an explosion of activity by my taste... More

The dishes were well presented, especially the deep-fried snapper. The salad with bean sprouts and slices of mango was a good accompaniment to the tasty food. The fusion of Asian herbs was subtle. The pork hock dish was slightly on the dry side but tasty. This is a place with dishes to share and also long tables/bar counter to share.... More

Hi there and thank you for your review. Happy to see that you enjoyed your overall Longrain Experience. The whole snapper is a favourite amongst the team here also- it really is a work of art! Our communal tables are designed to enhance the Asian philosophy of eating together, hence why individual tables are limited. We look forward to welcoming... More

four diners on the $68 banquet.. oysters were splendid delightfully seasoned, the eggnet dish was delish but hatd to find the prawns, the spinach too tough, the fish curry was too small to share with 4 and way too spicy however the pork knuckle was unctuous and the dessert was very well balanced.

We strolled down little bourke street around the corner from our hotel and it was full of recommended places to eat. We went to Longrain as walkins and they easily accommodated us.

fantastic asian-fusion dining in Lt Bourke St. We love the vibe of the place and the food is great, but always very busy, so expect to share a table, but that only adds to the experience. Great food, great cocktails and very classy

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
