After standing just inside the doorway guessing this was the place to wait we had no acknowledgement or even eye contact by the staff.....after around 8 minutes of being ignored we were finally told it would be a 45-60 minute wait by a very arrogant man... What a shame that first impressions count for so much....we won't be back

For my 60th birthday I wanted a special dinner to share with special family and friends. This was our first experience of Longrain and our experience of the banquet menu didn't disappoint. Our evening started with pre-dinner cocktails, unique Longrain cocktails ! Our group of eight all raved over the unique,interesting and really tasty food, the banquet giving a really... More

The Longrain was near our hotel. We were so glad it was. The food was outstanding with generous portions. Someone sitting near us cautioned us about the size of the meals. Lucky for us they did. The food was so tasty that I probably would have finished whatever amount was brought to us. I heartily recommend Longrain.

No bookings for less than 5 people. Enjoyed a pre-dinner cocktail with oysters. Then we were seated at a shared table which was fun and suited the restaurant. Interesting food with great wait staff - enjoyable night.

Arrived without a booking and seated quite quickly. We had a lovely server from the USA who explained the menus and the specials very well. We took her recommendation for both cocktails and mains and were not disappointed. Lovely food, great service and reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

Food is ok, I guess.. But not as good to justify the attitude if the stuff. Noone ever smiles, and especially disappointing was the quote-unquote welcome from a black shirt clad mustachioed hipster (hostess?). Wanted to turn around and leave if we weren't SO hungry! It wasn't so much what he said as how he said it. Arrogant and borderline... More

We went on a Saturday early, as we didn't have a booking and weren't sure if we would get in. We got a seat straight away on the large communal table, which turned out to be a fabulous choice. The waiter was great in explaining the menu, everyone that we dealt with was very polite and attentive. We would go... More

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.
