Long Chim Perth Ratings and Reviews
The food was overpriced for what we received, the food standard was average. Menu does not state meat is on the bone for most dishes. Wait staff were abrupt and not very friendly. The venue is a great relaxing vibe, just a shame that the service and food don't follow suit.
with only one other family in the whole place a full kitchen of staff still took 30 minutes to deliver food. Then, post having asked the waiter to make sure the dishes for the kids were sans chilly we got two dishes for the kids that were full of chilly. I just wont go back....ever.
A note to the hostess- it helps if you smile and at least try an act in a genuine manner.
A little disappointed - meal sizes were small yet quite expensive. I have been to long chim Melbourne and loved it, I didn't feel the perth restaurant up to the same standard. We needed to order three more dishes as some were still hungry.
Staff were lovely so not one complaint there.
Very disappointing with the service, we had chosen the massaman curry only to be told as we order it was sold out. It would have been nice to be told as we sat down.
The waitress took a cocktail when it still had a bit left in the glass and also took a plate away when it had vegetables and sauce still in it. We could have finished it with our rice if it wasn't taken away.
We waited 20 minutes for someone to come over to our table so we could pay the bill, no one came we had to find someone on the way out.
Absolutely outstanding. The food, service and atmosphere were all fantastic. Our waitress was incredibly friendly, knowledgable and helpful and there was a great fun vibe throughout the whole evening. The food was divine. We'd eat there every night if we could.
We actually used a gift voucher we received at Christmas, so we had the tasting Ma Chim Package. Tasty and very spicy food, but felt the quantities were very small. Curry was a bit boring. The service was also a bit hit and miss, for example they werent even sure what package had been purchased for the gift voucher. Would possibly dine again, but would prefer to order different things on the menu'. Overall service and atmosphere very good.
We had a great meal eventually! We arrived on time for a 5.45pm pre theatre booking. After seating us no-one came near us for 15 mins. There was only one person on the floor and then suddenly there were 4 at 6pm. Obviously the start of a shift. Not great really. Good service after that.
We had high expectations for Long Chim but we left feeling underwhelmed by the experience. The food was nice mostly but not amazing, the soft shell crab was not crispy and the roast duck red curry was very tough duck. The garlic watercress was lovely though and the papaya salad was good although very spicy. The decor is nice and the cocktails were good too but the service was not. The staff were friendly but didn't know the menu well, when trying to order something on the less spicy side the waitress was very little help and when we did order, had to return to let us know that actually it was covered in chilli and couldn't be made less spicy. Overall the experience was ok, but there are better Thai places that cost much less than what we paid for much higher quality of food.
Fantastic dinner with work friends. Second visit to Long Chim and it didn't disappoint.
Food was amazing, punchy flavours and wide selection on the menu. Everyone enjoyed the evening. The staff also accomodated a late change to increase a booking from three to four guests.
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!
Very good food. Excellent green chicken curry and outstanding lamb ribs. Excellent cocktails. Choice of wines by the glass a little limited. Service was incredibly efficient, but maybe a bit too efficient. Little attempt by the staff to make a connection with the diners. A strong sense of get you in and out quickly. This detracted from what otherwise would have been an outstanding experience.
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.
