I’ve been to quite a few restaurants in Melbourne who report to being the best foodie experience in town only to be disappointed. Bland overly complicated food, cramped and noisy restaurants are a turn off. So this place really took me by surprise. First let...More

Been once before, and 2nd time round it was as awesome as the first. Caramelised pork hock, wow. Awesome flavours throughout and the service was spot on. Extensive wine-list with options for all budgets, with some assistance from our waiter we opted for a mid...More

Hello and thank you for your review. We are unsure of what you mean by "Tasting Plates", as this is not something we have on our menu at Longrain Melbourne. Would you mind providing some further information? We look forward to hearing from you soon.

This is a must for a solid date night! Enjoyed great food and excellent service. The sharing of the long tables is actually a nice touch even for a date night.

Absolutely stunning from start to finish. My husband sampled the oyster with sorbet sauce, and stated it was without doubt one of the best in the world (we dine extensively globally)

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

such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
