About Longrain

Revisit the site of modern Thai taste at Longrain whilst being surrounded by modern Melbourne design and décor in Little Bourke Street. Its industrial history still tells a tale, with original features still highlighted from the converted warehouse, combined with the modern touch of exposed brick, polished wood, mood lighting and communal seating. Designed for sharing, Longrain’s modern Thai and Asian menu fuses together hot, salty, spicy and sweet flavours, and may be comprised of dishes like slow cooked yellow curry of Bultarra saltbush lamb and kipfler potatoes, as well as caramelised pork hock with five spice and chilli vinegar. Longrain's signature filled eggnet with pork, prawns, peanuts, caramelised coconut and cucumber relish is a must try.

This is the best Thai food I've ever tasted. The food is inventive but true to its origins. The service was incredible and staff were extremely accommodating. The decor makes this the perfect atmosphere for a casual lunch or an indulgent dinner.


The service was very friendly and the food was so delicious and filling! The cocktails were very fresh and tasty. We finished on the dessert sharing platter and it made the night! I would recommend to anyone!


Had one of the best dishes I can remember here, caramlaised pork hock was fantasstic. Very dark and intimate setting with good service. Found the pricing to be fairly good as well



Longrain is more a religion than an eating experience. Close your eyes and savour the aromas as you walk through the door into their roomy, warehouse-like designer decor. Open plan communal seating works for both groups and couples alike. It is lovely to sit next to your date instead of across from them!

The freshness of the produce and imagination and use of authentic thai ingredients is second to none.

Longrain is an experience to share. Bring three friends and share your dishes in order to experience as many of the tastes available as possible.

You cannot go past the Caramelised Pork Hock or Wagyu Beef Peanut Curry...absolutely magic. The green curries (meat accompaniment varies) is beyond words. Only minor point of annoyance is when all dishes are delivered simultaneously, as has happened on occasion.

Finish with a meltingly sweet dessert. Sadly the delicious Vanilla Bean tapioca with Palm Sugar ice-cream has not reappeared on the menu, but their are many delicious choices to end your meal.

The staff are discreet and service is impeccable. The bar staff are knowledgable about their products and mix a mean cocktail.

A five star culinary experience.

Only minor note is that noise levels can sometimes rise above comfort levels.
