A busy if somewhat noisy place Wednesday night adding to authentic experience just like David Thompson restaurant experiences in Bangkok. (Without the tuk tuk). Attentive and interested staff happy to make suggestions for a tired couple on a stopover.

A quick bite to eat after work and another enjoyable meal at one of our favorite restaurants in Perth. Red chicken curry is to die for. We shared the pork skewers for entrée which were not to our liking of more fat than meat. Yes...More

This restaurant serves SE Asian food. However, the taste has been slightly adjusted to suit Australians. The price is on the high side. The decoration inside the restaurant is nice and comfortable.

Despite having reservations and arriving early, we were seated in a corridor near the kitchen. The staff seemed less professional than many of the other restaurants that we visited in Australia; and the food was fine, but not as exceptional as several other Asian fusion...More

David Thompson’s casual, fun and accessible Thai street food restaurant, Long Chim opened its doors at the end of 2015. Bookings can be made for lunch and dinner and there is always availability for walk-ins. Located in the basement of the State Building on the corner of St George Terrace and Barrack Street, the 190-seat restaurant has a large open-plan kitchen, cocktail bar and a mix of intimate dining alcoves, communal style tables and counter seats. Long Chim means to ‘come and taste’. The restaurant’s fast service style combines with the sounds of clashing woks and the beating rhythm of the pestle as it hits the mortar. It’s a kind of music that leads you to laugh a little louder, stay a little longer and try something new each time. Drop in for lunch, a snack and drink, or stay for dinner and work your way through the menu, with a selection of Thai street food options including noodles, curries, stir-fries, deep-fried and grilled dishes. Signature dishes include crunchy school prawns with herbs, shallots and chilies; beef skewers with cumin, coriander and turmeric; or for something more substantial, sour orange curry of fish or minced beef with chillies, garlic, holy basil and fried egg. We also have our "maa long chim" menu, which means to come, sample and taste, and comprises of a selection of Long Chim’s best dishes, and is available lunch and dinner.
