“Great”
Reviewed 22 May 2012

Love the menu - similar to Sydney's Longrain. And the "communal dining". Meals were great too. Although I'm vego so requested some without the pork (i think) sauce and it was a bit bland.

“Mouth wateringly good!”
Reviewed 22 May 2012

There is little to say about Longrain Melbourne - just sitting here thinking about it is making my mouth water - fabulous food a must visit if you are staying in Melbourne!

If you are a group try suggesting a total price and asking the waiter to just feed you as much good food as they can for the price, that way you may find that you will get a more adventurous experience and with less choosing stress - all the food is great here.

“Fantastic food made for sharing”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

I've been to Longrain at least 5 times and it is always a fantastic dining experience. The food is absolutely amazing - though we're very guilty of ordering the same things whenever we go, simply because they're so good! Whatever you do make sure you have the caramelised pork hock, salt & pepper tofu and the prawn & pork eggnet! And finish off with a scoop of beautiful coconut icecream.

“Indulgently different!”
Reviewed 19 May 2012

Chose to sit up at the bar, which proved to be a great way to check out impressive cocktail making and got some great tips from the bar staff. Chose to try some smaller sized servings so I could try a couple of dishes (the smaller size wasn't on the menu so just have to ask). Eggnet and the Caramelised Pork Hock both impressive. Lychee and lemongrass martini was indulgent. Overall a great night.

“Lovely & Modern Thai food!”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

It doesn't look like a Thai restaurant! Funky bar, Communal table, exotic menu and delicious food made by innovative Australian Chefs.
