Great food variety and perfection with staff

You could not ask for better service if you were fine dining at a five star restaurant. The food is great, large variety of flavorful meals. You get so much to pick from. We can not wait to go back?

I stopped in for a solo dinner. Service was excellent as were the Zen Rangoons! The sushi was limited, but very good. If you have a hankering for Asian fare, you would be foolish not to stop!

The dishes here are fresh, made to order and tasty. Until a few months ago, Japanese and Vietnamese dishes were available in addition to Thai, but no longer. In any event, it is also a pleasant evening even when the waitstaff is sketchy.

This was our first time here, we were pleasantly surprised. We started with an appetizer that was similar to Crab Rangoons but I can't remember what they were called. We had them fried and they were amazing! My husband had a scallop and eggplant dish that he liked. I had the Pad Thai and it was very good! The service... More

Bathrooms were scary. Ordered drinks, they were average. Gin and tonic with flat tonic. Food was delicious though! I will absolutely try them again.

Hip layout for Bangor. Very good selection of creative Asian cuisine. Vietnamese/Thai stuff is especially good. Great lunch deals.

Have eaten in, and the service was only so, so, so tried takeout. Excellent service from the young man who presented our order and the food was good. Not exceptional but good.

Went here for dinner on our one night in Bangor. Knew we would be feasting on Maine Seafood for the next 9 days so wanted something a little different. The service was just okay, they kept trying to get us to sit at a "sunken" booth which normally would have been great but I was in a knee brace and... More

We stopped in for an early dinner. Only 1 other couple was there. The doors were open and there were some flies around that the waitress tried to whisk away. The dumplings from the appetizer menu were hot but not very tasty. The House Special chicken dish was not very hot, the chicken was dry and tasteless and the stir... More
