Tiny gem

I have eater in and carried out from this Thai/Lao/Vietnamese restaurant numerous times, and always with great pleasure. The food is utterly authentic and carefully prepared and served. Perfectly spiced and fresh - nothing ever was even a little bit wrong. I hope they will be able to expand... read more

Easy to grab for a quick, tasty and inexpensive lunch. When I am out and about running errands and have little time for a meal, these fresh rice paper wraps of crunchy deliciousness are just what I need!

It 's not alway easy to find good asian food in Maine but this is a gem. Try the Laotian choices and you will not be disappointed. Only two tables in the winter so be ready to do take out. Owner helpful and nice.

We stopped by for lunch a couple of days ago. What a great experience! The food was excellent (fabulous dumplings (very pretty and exceptional taste) and Laotian eggrolls and a new dish for us, a Laotian sausage dish). The dishes were very well prepared. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The water view is outstanding. We look forward to... More

This was our first time eating Thai food. We weren't disappointed. We had many questions and the owner was extremely accommodating. Our food was authentic and fresh. The vegetables were well prepared as were the egg rolls, summer rolls and dumplings. The restaurant, which could be easily missed, has very limited seating in the winter, but takeout is a good...

While vacationing we attempted to dine at Laan Xang three times on two different days and were turned away because they could not accommodate four people. The aroma emanating from the kitchen was lovely...sorry that we couldn't enjoy the food.

Don't be fooled by the small dining area, this is a fantastic experience. We stopped in for lunch while on vacation. The food is authentically delicious and the owners are charming. The vegetables were fresh and perfectly prepared. I wish I did not live so far away. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Every year we spend a week during the Fall in Maine, and the one place where we make it a point to always have a meal is Laan Xang. You could walk right past this place if you didn't know it was there, but what a mistake that would be. We've been there 4 years in a row now and... More

I was reluctant to eat at Laan Xang. I'm from New York, where Thai/Vietnamese food abounds. What a surprise. One of the best meals I've had anywhere. GO GO GO to Laan Xang if your anywhere near Belfast. Wonderful meal!

A true gem. Fresh healthy local food, friendly owner, a low key atmosphere. Best meal in our two days on the coast. Loved the steamed fish pocket - packed with very fresh veggies and nice balance of spices on the fish. Very reasonable priced. Still open when many places had closed for the season by the end of Sept. It... More
