The soul of south east asian cooking is the perfect harmony between four essential elements: hot, sour, salty and sweet.
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. The wine and cocktail list is created by restaurateur Sam Christie to work in harmony with the menu's intense and aromatic flavours.
Dividing the cocktail lounge from the main dining area, the bar is the heart of the Longrain space. This is were 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 fish tank kitchen window. Perfect for pre and post-theatre drinks, the bar is open from early evening till late.
