We have created a new South East Asian fusion food concept with colourful and aromatic dishes to create the perfect harmony between four essential elements: Hot, Sour, Salty and Sweet. Every plate achieves that elusive, cuisine-defining balance of hot, sweet, salty, and sour. We carefully source the best ingredients, organic where possible, to use them in all of our sauce and paste and this makes us uniquely different. This is also where the secret to the remarkable taste of our food lies, however sourcing the ingredients alone is not the key. We take the extra care of mixing and developing these recipes from scratch to perfection in order to deliver you with genuine and good food.

The staff needs to learn to manage their stress when busy : breathe, slow down & chill! Bit’s all in the mind-set!! Work on it!! Stress can be very distracting to “some” customers!!

Excellent and original menu @ Longrain . Fantastic friendly service from our lovely waitress. Lovely stylish setting . They did run out of Red wine ( bizarre when there are several supermarkets on the same street within easy reach ) but we just had white instead. The horrible toilet is the one thing that needs upgrading badly. Oh and there condensation on the window issue also , leaving the door open on a chilly autumn night is definitely not the solution . Those fixable aside I can’t wait to visit here again and have recommended it to my friends . A real treat .

We had a lovely meal. The service was amazing. It would be a regular of ours if only we were local!

Prices charged are more then what is stated on the menu. Also 12.5% service charged put on, I think is super cheeky when an item was missing that was ordered. The food was good but I thought it wasn’t great value. Overall, ok. Wouldn’t go again.

Lovely food, very authentic. It’s not a fancy restaurant but the service and food is great. Highly recommend for vegetarians and vegans too. We wanted a cocktail but it’s not that sort of place. Would definitely eat here again.

Staff were attentive and all very friendly - especially the owner.

Starters were good, nice prawns!

Mains lacked flavour, full of cabbage but no real spice for a Thai Green Curry. Nice meal but felt the mains lacked substance.

What a special experience!
We stumbled across this place, which looked quite new but had few but excellent reviews. Staff were so welcoming and friendly. Being welcomed by the owner made it more of a personalised experience. The food is sensational. So beautifully presented, and little twists and variations to your usual go to favourites. The duck massaman was delicate, tender and full of flavour. Delicious. We left feeling very happy and content. We will definitely be back and are sad we live so far away in London!

I booked a table earlier in the week for a friend's Birthday. I needed to email to ask about allergens as my friend is allergic to wheat, dairy and gluten. They were very quick to respond and really informative. The staff were really friendly, the food came quickly and was absolutely delicious. I will definitely be visiting again and recommending to friends!
