We stayed in Belfast over Labor Day weekend, touring the coast, and this was the only restaurant we went to multiple times. The quality of the food was excellent, a blend of Thai and Laotian dishes, all colorful, flavorful, with fresh ingredients. it was as good or better than similar restaurants in Boston. It has a nice location close to... More

I'm a curry critic and these folks hit it out of the park. The spring rolls and dumplings are some of the best we have ever had.......anywhere. They have some nice outside seating. Come by around 1 or 2 so you won't have to wait a long time. Our kids love it and begged us to go again and again...and... More

We headed for Belfast knowing there were several highly acceptable alternatives on the haddock lobster clam meme. We chanced on Laan Xang down the hill from a good ice cream store. What a lovely surprise. We shared a chicken, broccoli bean peanut sauce specialty which was outstanding. The veggies were fresh and perfect. A word about the chicken: way above... More

This is by far a magical place. The owner was extremely helpful and patient. We ordered the pork dumplings, chicken rams, and my favorite the Cornish game hen. The flavors were so fresh and addictive. The vegetables were picked from the garden and so good. The tomato chili sauce paired perfectly with the incredibly spiced hen! Everyone in the restaurant...

OMG, the best "authentic" Thai, Laotian-Vietnamese food. Took a day road trip from Bar Harbor to Belfast and found this gem. We had Gyoza (dumplings) for an appetizer and they were the best ever. Husband used to eat them by the bag full from street vendors in Vietnam. He had Pho (Vietnamese style noodle soup) that he also ate there... More

Great spot in Belfast, Maine - not to be missed! The depth of flavor in the sauces and broths is sophisticated and layered. It's a small cafe and so charming with the owner and chef preparing the food and we were lucky to stop in when her daughter was there to help serve customers. Go early as some of the... More

tiny outdoor dining, overlooking harbour. Excellent laotian, thai and vietnamese food. We go back to Belfast annually just to eat in this restaurant. The only drawback is that in inclement weather, there is only take out orders. They grow their own vegetables, herbs, and make their own delicious sausages. It's the place to visit if up in Maine.

Forget the Lobster Roll!! You might forget all about take-out seafood once you see fresh veggies being sliced in the immaculate open kitchen and savor the exquisite Thai Lao spices in every dish. The chive dumplings and the mango sticky rice were to die for. It is also worth mentioning that the deck on the restaurant has one of the... More

My husband and i were in the mood for Thai food and saw the review of Laan Xang on Tripadvisor. We ordered over the phone and in no time our order was ready to picked up. We had a delightful picnic on the terrace of our B and B. The staff is very accommodating and made one of the hotter... More
