There is not a lot left to say about Longrain. Everyone loves it, including me!
If you have to wait at the bar because of the long cues, you will be happy. Once your escorted to your table in the huge, open plan, but somehow still intimate dining room, you will be happy. Once the food starts arriving you’ll be even happier and your tastebuds might just sing.
Friendly, fun service kicks in at the front door and holds its pace until you leave.
Food bloggers drop their cameras and neglect to take photos, so caught up are they in just having a fantastic night (that actually might just have been me, sorry!).
Check out their menu here
Longrain serves punchy, exciting flavours in their South East Asian food.
Experience it with a group so you can really sample their menu. Favourites so far for me are the caramelised pork, prawn, peanuts, sour pineapple. Or the Baby corn, snake bean, ginger, snow pea, tamarind, sesame dressing (its a salad). Or the slow braised beef cheek. In fact I have enjoyed everything served to me at Longrain and it is hard to pick.
Visit them at 40-44 Little Burke St, Melbourne.

They only taken bookings for groups of 6 or more and a large group booking cane hard to get. So plan ahead. Or you could just turn up, enjoy one of their cocktails and wait your turn.
I have been four times. I have had an excellent, rollicking evening every time. I have neglected to take photo’s of the food every time because, well, I was eating……. The inter webs is chock full of photo’s though so you should survive without me this time.
Here is one of me and my friends in the cute little nook table they gave us last time we visited.
