Small restaurant and limited menu. Flavors are nice, a bit hit or miss. A couple of dishes we had where very salty. Biggest issue is service at this restaurant. Like many reviewers mentioned already, the don't seem to care that much. Almost arrogant and indifferent. Make sure to have a reservation, the restaurant is really small and fills up fast.

Visiting Maine for a month. Eating a lot of great food. Long grain had wonderful reviews. Our experience was wonderful. Service was excellent and food was special. Flavors were perfect and unique. Obviously fresh and authentic. Recommend highly.

This small hole-in-the wall has some of the best Chinese food I've ever eaten, and I've been to China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. You MUST make a reservation. Other reviews have complained about surly staff, but we had a very good experience all around.

Place is great for adults. Food is always excellent. Service is terrible. I have come to this restaurant many, many times. My experience is that if you have young children they do not want to seat you. On one occasion the hostess/waitress told me that there was an hour wait for a table. When I agreed to this, she came...

Favorite place for dinner in Camden! This is a small restaurant, better make reservations any night of the week, but well worth it. Delicious, healthy, made with local ingredients when possible. Looks like they do a great take out business, also.

A bustling, tiny place with take out clearly a big part of the business. Good service and explanations of the unusual menu. Of the four dishes we shared, all were very tasty and nicely presented. Our favorites were the rice cake appetizer and crab fried rice. Chris enjoyed a coconut pudding with sticky rice for desert.

Make a reservation and go to this restaurant. It's small and I went twice without a reservation and couldn't get in. The food is delicious and different from any other Thai restaurant I've been to. Try their Spicy Night Market Noodle soup...and if they offer it with kimchi....take it. I've been there four times and have never been disappointed. Service... More

Flavors were nice, although not really Thai. More fusion with Thai elements. Some dishes were a bit too salty to our taste (beef salad) Restaurant is small and somewhat uncomfortable. Freezing cold air coming in every time someone opens the door. Service is really bad. The server had an attitude and didn't really care about serving guests. She should look... More
