This restaurant closed in summer 2014. bad, it was a nice place that was around for nearly 20 years. It's "sister" restaurant, Splash, remains open in Westport, CT.

Sad to say that this staple in Greenwich has clearly closed in the middle of the night and is gone. Surprised!!!! No longer in operation, which explains (maybe) some of the poor reviews around. Don't know what occurred but Baang had been a great place for atmosphere and food. No Mas! Baang Baang... gone :(

Baang has been in the area for a long time so people obviously like going there---so, cudos to the restaurant for longevity. I'm not among the frequent diners because I find the food and atmosphere pretty average for the price point.

Baang sports a great menu with very good service. Overall I find many of the dishes too salty, although my wife loves them so. Prices are pretty reasonable given the location. The wine list is good and the cocktails are creative. Good place.

This used to be the cool place in town. The food is good, but it's lost a bit of its edge. The wine list is limited. The service is fine, portions are large and it's a decent place to go if you are in the mood for Asian food.

The Asian-fusion comments are right on. We are surprised that no one commented on the noise level. We are too old to enjoy shouting at each other. There is nothing the owners can do about it- the restaurant is one big open room including the kitchen.

This restaurant has been open for many years, which is a good sign. The food is very good and preparation is consistent. Indeed, everything is very good. Sangria packs a punch and is delectable.

We go here every other month and usually have the same items. The goat cheese wontons and the calamari salad is incredible. It is a different type of Calamari salad that you would expect. Never had anything like this before. For dinner the tan is excellent. I recommend sitting by the window as if you sit close to the kitchen... More

This is The best Asian fusion restaurant I've ever eaten in. It is even a better then China Grill in either Miami or New York City. My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner. We had an appetizer which was a tuna roll which was to die for! The tuna roll was wrapped in macadamia nuts such a... More
