    A local Thai which is worth trying. I read about this restaurant and we tried the prawn cakes, prawn betal leaf as an entree and the green curry with eggplant and added the brisket + rice. It was all delicious and we would go back. The restaurant was busy so the service was a bit slow however we were not in a rush and had a 1.45 hour slot to dine

    Great food, loved the prawn betel leaf, prawn dunplings, lanb shank masamum (outstanding) and som tam green papaya salad. Sometimes a bit of a wait for service if they are busy but part of the charm is that it's a hard working small team running everything with passion. A really lovely experience and a great modern take on Thai classics.

    Charlong is a casual dining experience. The atmosphere is very welcoming, the staff very friendly. The food is absolutely delicious. The highlights were Signature prawn betel and lamb shank massaman. Would be more than happy to go again!

    My group of 4 chose the Chefs selection menu for $79 each. We received 3 entrees, 2 mains, a veggie dish, rice and a small portion of dessert. The entrees were all absolutely delightful. Extremely tasty, fresh and left us wanting more. I felt the amount of protein in the mains was not quite enough. One piece of barramundi to share between 4 people was only a mouthful each. And the slices of steak in the pad Thai were very few and far between. Overall though, the food was extremely high in quality and I am looking forward to another visit very soon. These chefs are very talented.

Essentially, your feedback is incredibly valuable to us as we are always striving and provide the best possible service to our guests.

    This little lovely neighbourhood gem has become very popular, and therefore I think they’re struggling a little bit to keep up with the demand. The service is wonderful and when the food comes out it’s great but it just is taking a little bit of time to come out of the kitchen.
