Delicious food wonderful service
Gorgeous food and lovely staff!
Delicious food - wish you could take home the dipping sauces! Simply garnished and delivered with a smile. Lovely indoor dining space. Thai fishcakes our fave.
The food was amazing. One of the best Thai restaurants I’ve experienced. The owner hostess was incredibly welcoming and friendly. Definitely going back when next in Brighton.
After reading so many great reviews of this place I was looking forward to trying it. Unfortunately I was disappointed. The interior is cheaply decorated and our table was wobbly. There was no toilet paper on the loo. I was expecting the food to be incredible but it was nothing more than ok, there wasn't that kick of flavour you expect from Indonesian cuisine and I feel the mains were overpriced. The service was disorganised and chaotic. We asked for our bill and were asked if we'd be paying cash or card, 20 minutes later we still hadn't paid with no explanation of what the delay was. We had to ask for the bill again which was then calculated at our table on the iPad, this felt clumsy and awkward. Sadly we won't be back.
Girlfriends birthday and we both really enjoyed it. Service was incredibly friendly and as the Bao buns were off the menu, it was explained in great detail why they were off the menu. Nice ambience, and excellent squid!
Really lovely food. Great service and really lovely staff. Would highly recommend.
Delicious, healthy food served by the nicest people. Just a brilliant experience.
Everything was great except for the choice of music. Food was amazing
The beef rendang was excellent - would really recommend anyone to try it, but not such a fan of the rice dishes! Staff were really nice and friendly
Myself and Girlfriend are totally in awe of the place. The service was fantastic. The food was beautiful, full of flavour and well priced. Cocktails again were brilliant. Will return again and will recommend to friends and family. If anyone asks where to eat in Brighton, this will be the first name from my lips. Couldn’t be more pleased, thank you!
Such tasty vegan food. All the staff were incredibly friendly. Will definitely be going back.
Good value for money, amazing food and service
The food, venue and staff are lovely. Unfortunately my friends train was delayed so she arrived 20minutes late. I ordered a cocktail while waiting for her. Despite this I was asked when she would arrive as our table, which I had booked a month earlier, was needed in an hour. When my friend did arrive we ordered plenty of food and a bottle of wine. Yet, as it seems the restaurant had overbooked we were essentially asked to leave before we had finished our wine after 1 hour. So while the food was delicious and the staff were friendly the experience was not the most positive one and we felt very rushed and had to find another place afterwards
Very good. Really enthusiastic team, fresh, quality and tasty food.
Had a great experience. Recommended
Firstly - The staff were very friendly and attentive! But after reading such positive reviews, i expected the food to be of a higher standard.
Not a particular fan of plates that are over decorated with drizzled sauces for presentation but this was present on both starters and main dishes. I ordered Beef rendang curry, and while this is a 'dry' curry, i thought the meat to be on the though side and lacking depth of flavour. My partner ordered Chicken katsu curry which was served in what appeared to be a serving bowl (large plate with small bowl in the centre, like a dipping bowl) and this made for uncomfortable eating as it was a dish that required cutting of the food. Overall, our meal time was pleasant but felt let down by the food on the night.
I was really excited for this restaurant as I have seen really good reviews about it. Unfortunately it was disappointing experience as the food was not as I expected. The service was great waitress was great and really lovely.
Amazing service! Gorgeous food!
Fantastic food. The curries were amazing and portion sizes are really good. Really lovely staff. Would definitely recommend and go again.
A really lovely friendly restaurant. the food is all fresh and delicious
Absolutely amazing. Most friendly and attentive service, seriously delicious food and great cocktails for an wonderful price! 100% going back again and again!!!
Food fantastic and the staff couldn’t have done more in difficult circumstances. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Had the loveliest meal at Longrain! Their customer service was incredible, and they made Kayleighs birthday so special. Can't recommend them enough, the food was amazing and the service made our experience in Brighton! We can't wait to go back :)
The most amazing experience! The most beautiful food, the tempura prawns are to die for! (We had seconds) - staff made us feel very welcome and were very attentive! Will definitely be returning!
Absolutely amazing food and fabulous service. Every person in our group of 5 came away saying how delicious their food was. Warm and welcoming service too, with them even rearranging the tables so that we could sit in the sunshine. Can’t wait to go back!
Hmm. Where to start. Positives: food was nice, staff were friendly and the sun was shining. I do want this restaurant and its owners to do well so I offer constructive criticism. They were disorganised. The following either happened to us or the tables around us: brought the wrong dish; took an order for a dish that they didn’t have; forgot to take payment.
So I hope they can take this as advice and use it to improve or I fear they will not last long. Food was very tasty and reasonable portions so it has good potential if they can make it function better.
We had an absolutely amazing meal! So grateful for the amazing food and lovely service!
Wonderful food, cocktails and service! Made my partner’s birthday extra special. Thoroughly recommend to all!
Great people, great food, very well presented.
I have lived in south east Asia for over ten years and this was one of the best Indonesian meals I’ve had in the UK
Lovely food, good portions and nice flavours, not over-sweetened like a lot of Thai food.
Great hospitality. Cosy and welcoming, glad to support a small, independent restaurant. Will definitely return.
Really lovely restaurant! We visited on our anniversary and the staff were lovely! They gave us complimentary passionfruit cocktails which were delicious and also our dessert for free. Lots of great delicious vegetarian options too we will have to visit again to try everything on the menu.
We were visiting Brighton for the weekend and looked for a Thai restaurant near to where we were staying. Longrain was not only close but also had good reviews, and now we know why. We had a very warm welcome at the door as it was pouring with rain. The food was delicious and served promptly by the friendly and (not too) chatty staff. There was a lovely family type atmosphere and we could see others were just as relaxed. I can highly recommend Longrain for the ambience and food. Wonderful! Thank you for being part of our weekend;-)
Stunning food and service! Presentation was beautiful as well as the taste. Can't wait to come back
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!
Staff were super attentive and catering to our every need. Food was exquisite and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Will definitely be going again!
