We've peered in the window of Bahaar on numerous trips to Bangor, but have never found it open. Tonight, however, the lights were on and the tables were full...so we quickly pulled into a parking space to give it a try. The front-of-house staff were really charming and eager to please. The decor is simple, but the lighting is quite... More

Checked TripAdvisor for restaurants in the Bangor area while traveling back home from the Atlantic Provinces of Canada and thought it would be interesting to eat at a Pakistani restaurant. We were NOT disappointed! Started with potato Samosas and then I had a Shrimp Biryani while my husband had the Chicken Biryani. We also had some Naan. Everything was absolutely... More

They are so very welcoming and every effort is made to please. I just wish the hours were more predictable.

The food here is delicious! The restaurant does not seem to follow any schedule for when it's open, so if you happen to catch it open, go in and eat because you never know when you'll get another chance. The most reliable time to find it open is Friday night. The atmosphere is nothing special, but the food is amazing.

We have been going here for many years, and the food and service continue to be very high quality. There are a wide range of customers, from families and couples to business people and university folks. It's a great place to go if you have vegetarians in your group, as there are dishes to satisfy every taste and dietary preference.... More

I have eaten there several times, and have yet to be disapointed. The wait staff is kind and patient (especially with people trying Pakistani for the first time). The flavors are amazing. The food could easily be served in a fine dining restaurant, but fits well in the casual environment. The chicken chana and chicken dal are excellent. Their naan... More

I dined with my son and we both picked menu items at different ends of the taste spectrum. He had a curry which he could not stop eating even when the rice ran out (thank goodness we were able to get more rice). I had a first time taste of a fish dish that was beyond anything I have ever... More

Bahaar is a nice, family-owned restaurant in the central part of downtown Bangor specializing in authentic Pakistani dishes. Upon entering, diners are greeted by the wonderfully rich and exotic mingling of scents from spices in small bottles lining a low wall that deliniates the dining area from the entry. Though the decor and flatware are a bit on the chintzy... More
