Longrain Restaurant Review

: Longrain’s contemporary Thai flavors hit all the right notes, and the share-plate ethos works well for after-work couples and groups of friends. Better still, bookings of any size are now taken. Chef Victor Chung’s generously sized main meals include hot (and that can mean spicy, too) favorites, such as green curry with crispy chicken, pea eggplant and Thai basil, or caramelized pork hock, with five spice and chili vinegar, all dishes served with steaming hot Thai jasmine rice. Green papaya salad with dried shrimp and peanuts is always a palate cleanser too. Vegetarians do well with an aromatic spiced yellow curry of pumpkin, cauliflower and fennel, and salt-and-pepper silken tofu served with soy and lime. The wine list is compact but achieves what few others can --- excellent wine and beer options for this sometimes difficult to match cuisine.
