Welcome to Longrain

Longrain is Scott Pickett’s vibrant modern Thai restaurant, housed in an expansive converted horse stable from the 1900s. Inspired by a relaxed, communal eating philosophy, the menu is made up of shared dishes to be enjoyed on communal dining tables – banquet style. Complementing the fresh, punchy signature dishes, Longrain offers an abundance of Thai-inspired cocktails.
Visit us before or after your Comedy Fest show, and head upstairs to Longsong from Thursday–Saturday to add a cocktail or two to your experience!

Join us at Longrain over Songkran Festival from Saturday 13th–Monday 15th April. 'Kao Chae', rice steeped in chilled fragrant water, is a revered dish enjoyed during the Songkran festival, believed to bring auspiciousness to Thai New Year and keep you cool during the hottest months of the year. Its a dish considered ‘Royal Thai’ cuisine that dates back centuries. Our team honours this tradition by offering its authentic flavours to Melburnians during the Songkran Festival.

Our Thai Memories – PAD KEE MAO

Thailand’s infamous hangover dish! 'Stir fried drunken noodles'. This is the dish you go to when you’ve had one too many the night before. 'Pad' as in stir fry, 'Kee Mao' is referring to 'The Drunkard'. Occasionally the cook would even add a splash of whisky into the dish. Usually its made with flat wide rice noodles, stir fried with plenty of fragrant aromats and heaps of tongue burning, eye tearing, nose stinging chillies. It really wakes up the senses with a healthy dose of sweat. At Longrain, we're serving it with crispy pork belly. Have it during the night, have it after. Visit us to discover our recollections of when and where our kitchen team have had this dish. Only on the menu for April! (excl. Songkran 13-15 April)

Longsong is the penthouse to Longrain; the upper level. Perfect for pre-dinner drinks or for a lighter meal, it sits nicely in that space between a restaurant and a late-night bar. You don’t have to eat – but you’d be missing out. The food is inspired by the flavours of downstairs and designed to pair with drinks. There are DJs spinning vinyl from Thursday–Saturday nights, a Thai-inspired cocktail list, local wines, craft beers on tap – it's a casual place to meet the crew until late into the night — no reservations required but dinner bookings are welcomed. Please reach out if you are curious about our venue and would like to know more.
