Description: Welcome to Longrain, Melbourne, Longrain's 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.

Delicious food, great ambiance, efficient and quick, would not recommend groups of more than 4, as the dishes are to be shared and then it becomes a pain. The most delicious cocktails !! you can book for 8 or more but personally the table is then so big you can only talk to the person next to you anyway.

We stumbled into Longrain shortly after arriving Melbourne at the conclusion of a 6 hour road-trip from Coonawarra, our selection based purely on the TripAdvisor reviews. We were starving, having skipped lunch, and honestly even the most mediocre dining facility would have satisfied our hunger. But we were pleasantly surprised to find something far from mediocre. Longrain was exceptional.
The restaurant was packed, it was afterall a Saturday evening, and we didn't have reservations.
We were escorted to a bar/waiting area and told it would be a 30 minute wait. We ordered wine and cocktails and were seated just as our first round was finished. The ambiance was exceptional, dark and moody, yet lively and loud. The perfect mix of elegance and romance, yet sociable and trendy. A perfect blend of sophisticated style.
At first glance, there were not many vegetarian options on the limited menu (2 of the 3 in our group were vegetarians), but when I inquired with our waiter about meatless options, he clarified that a few of those listed were indeed meatless, and others could be modified to meet our dietary request. Our meals (3 mains: 1 with meat, 2 without; and 1 appetizer) were AMAZING. Worth every penny, absolutely mouthwatering. Maybe even the best Thai I've ever had. Between the ambiance, service, and quality of dishes Longrain was pure perfection. Highly recommended.

We ate here on the first night of our stay in Melbourne. The atmosphere was great as we were seated on long tables across and next to other diners. It was interesting being able to see others' choices. The menu was not extensive but something for everyone. The food was lovely. It was packed so the staff were rushed at times but certainly helpful. You have the choice to eat at the bar or have a few drinks if no seats are available. Cocktails were yum!

Had dinner here during our 2 nights in Melbourne. Had such a high expectation after reading all the wonderful reviews heree and elsewhere. The food itself was yummy, and i would say authentic ie they dont dumb down the spice level. The service was professional but not warm. Their website states to expect long queue and to come EARLY. Well they weren't crowded at all.
I have had better Thai before in Sydney (Spice i am) and Bali (mama san or sarong) for a better price.
