Sydneysiders may have had first taste of Martin Boetz’s Longrain in Surry Hills, but Melburnians can rightfully stake claim to this favourite modern Thai restaurant.

Powerful, fresh flavour combinations fill the small yet simple menu that’s responsible for keeping the dining room full of patrons every night of the week.

At the entrance of the dark yet chic restaurant on Little Bourke Street, the heavy wooden doors invite patrons into the impressive, dimly lit dining room. For a drink or two start at the bar, a convenient place to unwind over expertly crafted cocktails.
