Excellent Thai

Great Thai food, plenty of flavor, great pricing, casual, just make sure to make reservation since limited tables, well worth it.

Walked in on a cold February day. We were asked if we had a reservation....I chuckled to myself because little did I know that this is the best restaurant in Camden. It fed all my senses. I grew up in Vermont so love it when everything is mismatched, and the staff look like they just came in from the garden... More

The advantage of going to Camden off season (March) mid-week is that you can get into this very popular small restaurant without a reservation. The food was fresh, the service very good.

Thanks to a lovely evening after a day of melting snow and bright sun, my wife and I decided to go to Long Grain for dinner. I called for a reservation for two around 5, and they had a table available at 6. It is a small, cozy restaurant on Main St; even this time of year making a reservation... More

The location is right on Main St near Rite Aid and many will just walk past it as the signage is tiny. The inside is small and reservations are highly recommended especially during tourist season. The Food: To die for amazing. I'm not a huge fan of Thai food but I will say this is hands down some of the... More

This is a very popular spot on Main St. We had steamed buns and rice cakes for appetizers and split the Pad Ke Mao for our entrée. Everything was wonderfully prepared and the presentation is beautiful. Very small and intimate, and a little hard to find as they have no sign other than a small one on the door.

Our table had 4 different meals and each plate had a different taste and smell. It was very good. The service was quick and the atmosphere was nice and quiet. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Long Grain is wonderfully small, modestly decorated, and always packed. I sat at the bar (reservations recommended, even at the bar) and was truly blown away by everything that I ate. I had heard a lot of praise, and because of that, part of me expected it to not meet these expectations. I was wrong...it was amazing. The Nam Tok... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat, ever. Every time I go to the mid coast it is top of my list of things to do. The favors are outstanding, but built with wonderfully simple and tasty ingredients. The mussels appetizer with coconut milk is outstanding. The place is small and really popular so book a table or... More

In spite of our friends making a reservation two weeks ago, we waited by the entrance of the restaurant for forty minutes for our table. The restaurant is very small and it was very crowded, a large number of people were coming and going picking up orders to go by the bar. From the moment we sat down, our waitress... More
