A fantastic dining experience. Exceptional service, and absolutely delicious food. Feels like a taste of Thailand in the middle of Perth. Love the setting, great ambience, but the food - wow! An absolute gem of a place.

We had the prawn starter, it was recommended by the waiter.

I was very disappointed! it should say shrimp shells, with chunks of shallots.

The main, under the specialty section, was the beef option, which was very fatty.

I was disappointed as a tourist.

·Dined on 16 December 2016

Had 2 hours for our booking. It took 40 minutes to get a waiter to our table food came out quickly though. Duck was tiny, not crispy and cost $36. Pad Thai was super sweet with a Very shrimpy aftertaste. Massaman curry just wasn't nice at all. The only dish I enjoyed was the deep fried squid. Waiter cleared the table while my mum was still eating so she stopped out of embarrassment. The bill was then put on the table straight away even tho we had 30 minutes left for the table

·Dined on 11 December 2016

This is my 3rd visit to Long Chim. I have high expectations but I always feel a little disappointed. The waiter was lovely and knowledgeable although he encouraged us to order an extra dish which we probably didn't need. We chose Pad Thai and I have to say it was gluggy and far too sweet. Sailors Thai in Sydney makes the best in my opinion.

I love the decor and ambience and would suggest friends try it out but maybe it's not for me

Sunday Lunch kids can be extremely noisy - very few tables where you can escape. Other luncheons also noisy but more from businesspeople extending their lunch. Alltogether pretty authentic Thai - however on the high side of the scale.

·Dined on 10 December 2016

The Long Chim experience started off very well, the staff were very attentive and we ordered delicious cocktails. However, it was after these initial 20 minutes that the whole experience turned south. We ordered the chef's tasting menu, with wine matching. Every dish was extremely average, not one dish was worth remembering. I truly believe that there is a much better standard of Thai food available in Vic Park and Canning Vale areas, and at ¼ of the price.

I've been recommend Long Chim several times, last night was second visit.

Overall impression, similar to first, is slightly underwhelmed. Food is good, service is ok but reality is it's over priced, the service is ok but nothing outstanding - & being told to vacate our table 20mins before the end of the allocated 2hr slot just irked.

Too many other good restaurants in Perth, wouldn't rush back.

·Dined on 6 December 2016

For starters my wife had the beef skewers and I had the Chang Mai chicken Larb. The beef skewers were cooked well, but with just the onion scattered on the plate and no sauce - bland. The Larb was fantastic, great aroma. My wife had the Biryani which she enjoyed. I had the pad thai which was sweet. The waiter told me later there was supposed to be a side condiment dish, that would have helped! The sparkling mineral water was warm and flat. The "dry" riesling was actually sweet.Disappointing nigh

·Dined on 28 November 2016

We feel, as strong followers of David Thompson, that he would be quite disappointed if he had

been served the meal that we were given on this evening.

Our entree of fish cakes was overcooked and tasteless consequently.

One of our main courses, the green chicken curry, was tough and lacked classical Thai flavour.

The Pad Thai was over sweetened, pandering to western tastes.

·Dined on 20 November 2016

We were provided with a nice quiet private area. Thank you Long Chin. Service was good when you could get hold of someone . Food quality was great but servings were small for the price point that you are paying. For example the fish curry - there was barely enough for 4 people when you're paying over $30 for a dish. Not value for money but worth trying for the awesome flavours and the unique street environment.

We all loved the food, some of the dishes were just toooooo hot. Such a shame as the favours in the dishes were lovely but the cabbage leaf entre dish was much too spicy for the 2 of us who were game to try it. The other 2 people at our table knew that they would be able to stomach it.

We were well advised by our wait staff on what to order and how much. The food came quickly and it was both fresh and more than enough. We had crunchy prawns, which were magnificent, and fish cakes which were the best that I had ever tasted. My guest and I were able to conduct a long conversation without straining to hear one another.

·Dined on 14 November 2016

The stir fry noodles with chinese broccoli was amazing - deep, barbeque flavours and didn't taste oily at all. It was just a tad too salty for me - and I am normally a salt fan - so perhaps just a bit overdone this time. But would recommend Long Chim to those who want intense flavours and a non-standard Asian dining experience.

·Dined on 12 November 2016

First time at Long Chim. First impression was the high noise level. Next was the lack of intimacy - tables either side of us only half and arm's length away. Conversations could be overheard easily, despite noise level. Service was great though and food was lovely. Wouldn't go back for a special occasion though as this is quite an noisy/busy venue.
