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.

In town for work caught up with friends over a great meal
The staff were first class in delivery of a dining and service experience
We chose 4 dishes to share the only slight negative I could offer would be to bring the meals out in Flavour order lightest to heaviest having said that the Coconut Chicken was to die for and the caramelised Hock was a glorious flavour experience
The wine list was sustainable and priced reasonably for the city
Will be back

Went wiz a friend and didn’t like the food at all. This place is overrated. The egg net chicken dish was too sweet and it tastes more like a dessert than a savory dish. This is definitely not the best Thai fusion in the town. There are heaps more better than this. Didn’t get what’s the hype about. Wouldn’t want to go for the second time.

Thank you for your review, we are disappointed to read that you didn't enjoy our food especially our 'filled eggnet with pork, prawns, peanuts & caramelised coconut as it is, one of our signature dishes. This dish is one of the sweeter dishes on our menu, we do recommend that you balance your menu choices with a selection of sweet, sour, salty and spicy dishes. We are sorry that our staff did not guide you in your menu selections. We will ensure that our staff communicate the importance of the balance of flavours when selecting dishes on our menu in the future.

This was my first visit ans wont be my last, simply some of the best Asian Fusion food available, i strongly suggest you share meals to get the best experience, You need a table of 6 or more to book, otherwise it is walk in and share a table with others, a must do in China Town
