I was actually very disappointed with my second visit to Long Chims. After the first time I thought it would be a fantastic experience, however after being told we were on a strict 2 hour time limit, we were kept waiting 30 minutes before even being offered water or a menu. The food was great but the service not so good. I will not be returning.

Really over rated. Expensive food for what you get. Music too loud to comfortably speak with your group. Not great - Had to ask for cutlery! Two dishes were luke warm at best. Servings were small. Take your money elsewhere.

Decided on the venue because of reviews. Was expecting a lot better and didn't feel the food was worthy of the price tag. Starters (fish cakes and beef skewers) were both very dry. Beef skewers were very tough and chewy. Best dish was the Green Chicken Curry.

Don't think I would return unless I knew the food was going to be as good as the reviews said it was.

Not my first visit to Long Chim but definitely my worst. Let me preface by saying I considered myself a big fan of Long Chim prior to this experience and I have always found the staff to be particularly pleasant (even on this occasion when their service was lacklustre). Booked for 7 pm on a Thursday evening. Place was buzzing when we arrived. Seated promptly. Waited a long time for service. Eventually ordered wine. It took ages to arrive and only presented itself upon inquiry as to its whereabouts. Several favourite dishes unavailable. Wine service consistently slow all evening and as the bottle is not left with the table we were consistently without drinks. By 9 pm the place was empty and the waitress brought the bill. We pointed out that we hadn't actually asked for the bill and would quite like to look at the dessert menu. Staff were cleaning up around us and the only other table remaining in the restaurant at 9.30 p.m. When paying the bill at the till at the end of the evening I asked the waiter what the story was with the restaurant being empty so early and he replied "well thats Perth nowadays". Hmmm perhaps don't treat the customers who are still in the restaurant like you'd really like them to leave so you can go home and you might still have customers for an after dinner drink. We went elsewhere.

Food was delicious - just the right amount of spice but the serving sizes were tiny. Beef skewers consisted of one slither of beef on what can only be described as a toothpick sized skewer. The Thai fish cakes were the size of a twenty cent piece and all the curries were predominantly gravy. We enjoyed the flavours but found ourselves filling up on rice. It was difficult to hear the waitresses because of the poor acoustics but they were very helpful with recommendations.

Food was awesome and beautifully presented. We had the red Duck curry and the roast Pork. The only downside is the close seating. Understandable on a busy Friday night, but we ate on a Sunday afternoon and there was plenty of room in the restaurant, yet we were sat right next to another couple on a first date. Awkward for everyone. Also the wine was a little pricey. Overall though, a great meal and restaurant. We will certainly recommend it (with caveats).

Excellent Thai food with first rate service in a welcoming and well thought out room. The food options,a la carte or set menus offers a good choice. Each meal was exceptional with the Banana roti a standout. Good wine list. Wait staff very knowledgeable. This is not your standard suburban Thai so don't expect the same prices. However it is excellent value for money. We will be back. Loved it!

I LOVE hot food and hubby and I have a pretty good pain threshold but goodness gracious me bring me a glass of milk pronto! Flavours were great then you would accidentally eat a chuck of dried chilli in the dishes (well hidden at times) and you were a blubbering mess.. thank goddess for waterproof mascara!
Place is great, staff attentive and easy to talk with.. shame the tables are sooo close together that husband and I had a great conversation along with listening to the couple on my right, who may have been on the same chilli train as us due to amount of wine drunk to extinguish mouth flames. The conversation was quite bland on left but they gave us a running commentary of what they were eating, which I did thank them for when leaving. Love Long Chim but will book outside in future..

Very good overall,
interesting dishes in set menu, great level of spice and heat,
service was good, thought the grenache wine pairing was odd,
and didnt fit with my palate,but all other were great, especially the sweet traminer

you guys should consider doing an optional beer pairing for each course

Slow service. Very spicy food, even the ones the waiter recommended as mild. $35 for prawn curry containing 5 very small prawns only. 2 hour time limit, including slow service. 20 mins left, we were informed that we only had 20 mins left and we'd need to order dessert. We left and had dessert elsewhere. Very loud, strange choices of music. Uncomfortable seating. Saving grace were the cocktails. Won't go there ag

Great ambience and attentive service ! However the food was well over-spiced (and we love our chilli and spices but just too intense) Felt like a rushed experience due to the hour and a half slot. Overall was enjoyable but have enjoyed other city venues, with similar cuisine, more .

Long Chim is one of my favourite places to dine in Perth. Recently I was informed that the chilli in the Larp had been "amped up". It is now too hot to enjoy and the chilli obscures the other flavours (in my opinion). I did see that others around me were also not enjoying the Larp and not finishing their serving. I would love to see it offered at different spice levels so I can order it once again.

We had the $95 banquet with wine tasting. The difference between that and the $68 banquet was the duck and ice-cream. There was very little duck so I felt the price difference of $27 was unwarranted. The wines were okay. There was only just enough food, some of us were still a little hungry.

the food was great and so was the service however there seemed to be a constant pressure to eat and vacate the table - the staff tried taking our started plates twice before we had finished we booked a 7.30 table in advance, i dont think 1.5 hours is long enough especially when ordering the set banquet.

I must admit I'm a long time fan but my first couple of visits in Perth were disappointing. I'm not sure whether it was my over expectation of the kitchen just finding it's feet. They have certainly found all feet. the menu is outstanding and at a very reasonable price. This is not suburban Thai, its as close as you can get with the ingredients available locally to an in Thailand experience.

Lovely setting, but very loud. Difficult to converse. Pad Thai was sickly sweet, one dish was so hot (chili) that no one could eat it. Beef skewers were dry and overall at least 75% of the food we ordered was underwhelming. Very disappointed, as we had been looking forward to going for ages.
