We had a great meal - ordering the banquet. Our waiter was very professional and handled food allergy requirements with both a smile and easy fix, even ensuring all other dishes complied so we had no issues. The wine and beer range was excellent. A bit hard to hear friends in the restaurant - a few soft surfaces to absorb some noise wouldn't go astray. Definitely a fab Perth spot!

Great service and ambience. The food was good but not worthy of raving about. Mains very expensive with small portion size. We won't be hurrying back.

I wish we hadn't ordered the fixed menu - the food seemed to lack something. Some dishes were delicious while most weren't of the calibre we expected. We ordered the 3 course menu and were very disappointed with the dessert - it was an afterthought of a coconut cake more suitable for morning tea than a dessert.

My chicken curry had okay flavours but unfortunately the chicken wasn't prepped well - full of cartilage and one piece still had several feathers attached. When I complained the waiter brought an empty dish and attempted to just remove the feathery meat...I had to request a different dish instead. They brought me a chicken green curry without giving me any choice. It was nice but not what I wanted.

The food at Long Chim was delicious. We tried the Maa Long Chim experience at $68 per person and I would probably prefer to choose our own dishes if we were going to come back another time as it didn't seem very generous. Inside the restaurant is very noisy, its probably better to sit outside if you want a more relaxed meal.

Pretty pleased with a recent visit to The Chim. Been before and both experiences have been good without being overwhelming.

Alas i think the full flavours and the chilli levels have been dialed down significantly for the perceived wussy masses!
People should be aware of what they are going to eat here, so let's get back to being authentic and if it's no good for the softies they can go elsewhere. There's enough real Thai food lovers in this state to fill that place all night every night!!!

Fabulous service, really fabulous, and I don't dish that out lightly; pardon the pun haha.

The wines are outrageously overpriced for what they are.
If they were more sensibly priced the patrons would drink two glasses instead of one and have a much better experience.
I always feel a bit violated when an establishment sticks it to us customers for ordinary wines, and there really is nothing better than a half decent red with some super tasty Thai!!

I'll be back, but I do expect better for the price and the story behind the establishment.

We thoroughly enjoyed our food at Long Chim despite mixed reviews. We had the beef skewers, deep fried whole fish (a must have and would have again!), duck red curry and roti with banana for dessert.
The tables are seated quite close together which isn't ideal although I can deal with it however I do mind that your table is only booked for a 1.5 hour time slot until the table is re booked. I find this quite offensive given the expense of the food. We had barely finished our shared dessert and last drink before we had to give up the table. Not a great finish after spending over $200.00.

It felt as though we were being rushed through dinner. Staff were overly attentive to the point of taking away plates while still finishing the last mouthful of food.
Food was nice though! Overall experience probably not worth the price.

I've waited months to try Long Chim and it did not disappoint. The Red Curry with Duck is the best I've had, ever. The freshest ingredients and made from scratch onsite. The depth and complexity of the fragrant flavours command a leisurely pace, so each mouthful is enjoyed. Pricing is at high end but is value but means Long Chim becomes a special occasion dining room rather than everyday

Food was amazing; So tasty and had such an authentic flavour that I had never had at any other Thai restaurant. Not too spicy but enough to create palatable interest and was very quick to be served to us! However, the service needs work. Some dishes were forgotten or brought to us that we did not order and some of the wait staff we not very friendly. Other than this it was an enjoyable experience and a great way to spend my birthday dinner!

 (New York Area)·Dined on 7 February 2017

Once seated we were ignored a while, stuck in a corner near the store room.
Once served for drinks, we thought things were looking up. The barman was brilliant.
The drinks themselves, delicious.
The food options were fantastic - although the pricing a little steep for what you got.
And you couldn't hear the person next to you or opposite you speak - it seems everyone in the room was competing with the music as it went from wallpaper to concert-level volume thanks to the terrible accoustics in the room.
The best thing about the evening were the cocktails and the customer service from our waiter - when he eventually came over to us.
But the place is more a place to be seen to be eating, than one to go to to enjoy a good meal and good company, because although the food looked nice, it felt like it was lacking and you couldn't enjoy the company of your table because of the atmosphere in the venue.
Severely disappointed after hearing all the wonderful things about this place - but not disappointed in the Massaman Curry or the cocktails.
Slightly mortified to say that I think the four of us will give our local Thai a go next time. Better value for everything: food, service, and money.

This is about the 6th or 7th time we have dined at Long Chim and have always really enjoyed it. This time we were disappointed. We had a booking - we were essentially ignored at the front desk of the restaurant after arriving and needed to walk into bar to get someone's attention, who then told us, as he was typing on an ipad, we needed to wait until he had finished - not a great start.several other staff had walked past at this stage but no one greeted us. He then raced off ahead of us to "take us to our table". Not seated with menus - waited another 5-10mins for our table waiter to come who then was very helpful throughout our dinner. Food delicious but serving sizes have definitely decreased - red duck curry - previously a favourite of ours, only 5 morsel sized duck on bone - not value for money. Charred pork noodles - only 4 very small pieces of pork - not enough for 2 people t share as they suggest.We decided not to stay for dessert as we usually would. Then same guy who "greeted" us, took a very long time to process payment. Not professional. Disappointing. Expect higher standards from a David T restaurant
