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

Yes it is tiny and the outdoor seating is limited but the pair that own this place make that into a plus with their friendly service and you find out just how quickly the people of Belfast are to meet new people and make new friends. Both Thai and Laotian meals are on the menu. The Laotian sausage is great... More

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
