Long Chim

Restaurants, Thai Perth Central

David Thompson’s casual street-food eatery is a Thai coup for Perth

The opening of Long Chim is something of a coup for Perth. David Thompson, world renowned for his establishment Nahm in Bangkok (voted as one of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2015), opened Long Chim in Singapore to great acclaim. The second, and unlikely to be the last, is tucked away in the basement of the State Buildings. It has a laidback street food sensibility and walls adorned with street art by top Thai artists. On the menu front think, noodles, curries, stir fries, deep-fried and grilled dishes: beef skewers with cumin and turmeric, deep-fried squid with garlic and peppercorns, roast duck with pickled ginger, crunchy pork with Chinese broccoli and oyster sauce. There’s even durian ice cream or banana roti to finish off. James Connolly, previously of Angel’s Cut and Shorehouse, heads up the bar team; another marker of the quality of Long Chim is his Thai inspired-cocktail offering.
