Welcome to Longrain, Melbourne, continuing to evolve Martin Boetz's original Longrain vision with a menu that 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.
Dividing the cocktail lounge from the main dining area, the bar is the heart of the Longrain space. This is where our talented bartenders create beautiful twists on the classics, taking inspiration from the bright, zesty flavours of South East Asia. Come early and wait for your table with a stick drink while you watch the chefs shred chillies through the kitchen window. Perfect for pre and post-theatre drinks, the bar is open from early evening till late.

                              The food was fantastic and is always consistant in quality. I love the space and ability to dine with 2 or 20 people. The staff were great and we had a memorable night.

                              This was my first time dining at your restaurant. Several people had eating 'requirements' and the staff were super helpful in organising dishes appropriately. The food was divine. My only suggestion is that the venue is very dark - too dark! I was greeted my two males in the female toilets as they had been unable to see the sign on the door correctly. I totally understood because I had stood there for a while in the dark trying to decicpher it myself! Add some lighting please so you can see the food, your friends and find your way safely to the bathrooms!

                              Value for money considering quality of food. Highly recommend the Restaurant for a group outing. But the atmosphere can also make it a romantic evening.

                              My sisters, mum and I were quite late for our booking, resulting with only 25 minutes to eat before going to the theatre. Feeling very flustered from the Melb traffic, the staff couldn't have been any more understanding, calm and helpful. The lovely team brought the most delicious food and champagne to us within 10 minutes, all with a comforting smile. We were so impressed with the food and service, we cannot wait to return. Thanks so very much!

                              Lighting is rather dim, perhaps this is the trend, but I prefer to be able to see clearly, as it is not a venue for candle light romantic dinner, the tables are close so not a place for that. Otherwise, it is a nice place, overall 4.5 out of 5.

We will definitely come back. Good choice of wines

                              Fantastic food as usual. The only thing I find disappointing is the noise level, making it hard to chat. It doesn't stop me coming back though.

                              Had a great dinner hosting interstate business guests. The waiter we had was fun, cheeky but knowledgable on the food and recommended some yummy options. Make sure to leave room for desserts, as they are amazing!

                              Can't fault the food, service and ambience of this restaurant. Our group had to finish our meal at a certain time to go to a show and the restaurant made sure that we were out in time, even though some of the group where late and we were a table of 11 with two people not eating seafood. We had a wonderful table at the window and everyone on the table thoroughly enjoyed the meal. We will all go back again when in Melbourne.

                              Michael Voumard recommended we go and we weren't disappointed. Good value and great food. My favorite was the raw black kingfish with yuzu, clean and subtle flavors with mandarin. Yum. We picked our way through the menu and finished by sharing a scoop of each of the sorbets and ice creams, perfect on a hot Friday arvo. Chrissie and Guy NZ
