Been here many times and always excellent. Betel leaf is the best, followed by the pork-hock. After that, everything is awfully good at least. Great cocktails. Every time I transit Melbourne I head here; hard to beat. Afterwards, go to the Melbourne Supper Club just around the corner.

We've been to Longrain three times now over the last six months and will most certainly be back. The food is without doubt beautiful. The stand out dish for me is the caramelised pork hock but in reality everything we have tried is delicious. Strongly recommend ordering a variety of dishes for the table and sharing around to try as... More

My partner and I visited Longrain for an early dinner before going to see Kinky Boots. We sat up at the bar (highly recommended) and had a very attendant waiter who was the perfect blend of friendly and professional. The eggnest salad was a highlight, along with a special 'beef short rib' dish. The restaurant has a great feel and... More

Decided to go into town early for dinner before a show. Longrain was the perfect choice. We gave ourselves plenty of time and accepted a seat at the bar where we enjoyed watching cocktails being made. The staff were very friendly and helpful with our selections. Our dishes were delicious, my favorite was the oysters but the green curry and... More

Dinner at Longrain this time happened a bit accidentally - because we were sick of queueing at an alternate venue. So just a couple of blocks walk and having not visited Longrain for around 12 months, it was a 'no brainer' where to head. This is a quality restaurant - but with casual, classy ambience and food to savour and... More

Have eaten at Longrain a few times now and have never been disappointed. We ordered two main courses to share this time and there was more than enough food. Service was great as usual and did not have to wait for a table. Even when you do have to wait the bar service is great. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
