Neighbourhood: Perth CBD
Description: 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.

Back for the second time! We ordered the set menu costing $65 each, excellent value for money, we struggled to finish it all but no complaints there. Everything was absolutely flavoursome and fresh. Cocktails were very different than your usual also very nice. The only one I did not drink was the one with a pickle on it as it was too strong and just tasted like pure alcohol. The maitre 'd was happy to allow me to exchange the drink for something else. The only suggestion to the food I would give is a side serving of ice cream or something similar to go alongside the desert which was the coconut cake, on its own seemed a little heavy after the main meal. Will definitely be back maybe for lunch and happy to recommend to friends and family! Amazing vibes!

This was our first visit after hearing very good things about the place. We weren’t disappointed. Great buzz in the place with plenty of options for seating. We had a drink at the bar before sitting down for dinner. Food was excellent. Freaks have and so tasty.
The wine is a bit expensive for what you get so be prepared.

Our meal at Long Chim was the best Thai food we have ever enjoyed. We had the pork with rice cakes and the vegetarian spring rolls for starters and the. The pad Thai and fried fish for mains. The service was outstanding- helpful staff who checked in with us about our meals without being intrusive. The restaurant has a really interesting design and layout too. It was a great night out - thanks to the chefs and service staff.
