We had the best desert we have ever had. And we are a bit on the old side. Coffee was good too, service was super, price range ok. We will be back.

Came to have a drink at the cocktail bar at Longrain, found it has been transformed, to the subcontinental, the atmosphere has totally changed, odd pictures of every day Indian Folk on the wall, and just passable food. The Prawn curry dish $32 for four...More
