Excellent Lunch

We were exploring in Camden ME and found a tiny, hole-in-the-wall, Thai restaurant. It is very close to the Opera House, The sign is hard to read. Was a great lunch, we were lucky to get a table as most were already reserved for the lunch meal. Delicious fried rice with crab and r=free range fried... read more

We wandered into this place close to our Bed and Breakfast in downtown CMden as it was crowded despite the cold May weekend. We were seated at bar which was fine as we wanted a drink and to share meal. We got one of the fried rice dishes with Maine crab which was good. I like more spice though but... More

the food is very good, service is good, location right in town is perfect. We'll eat here again. We're fairly picky eaters, in terms of quality, if that matters to your consideration.

I have never had Thai food that was this authentic and delicious! They know what they are doing and I wouldn't change it. Small restaurant but worth trying if you like Thai!

We had heard raves about this tiny little Asian inspired restaurant. Within walking distance from the Main Street. Everything in Camden is within walking distance.

We stopped here for an early dinner on our first night in Camden. We were told about Long Grain through family members who have traveled to Camden in the past. We made reservations about 6 hours before our dinner as we heard it is tough to get a seat in this small popular place. They had no reservations for 6pm... More

I met my friend for lunch. Our table was ready on time. The food was prepared to order quickly and it was excellent. The menu offered a reasonable selection of Thai food with both meat and vegetarian choices. Consideration is given to local and organic sources without being precious about it. Prices are reasonable for the area, but not cheap.... More

We were in Camden last week staying at a cottage that we found on airbnb. The owner of the rental suggested this place as a go to place for good food. We called to book a reservation, but happened to call during the break time between lunch and dinner. We walked in around 6 and while there were several tables... More

Tiny place; must have reservations. Food was authentic; one dish was a little salty. Service was hurried but warm. This was one busy place!

I visit this wonderful restaurant twice a year when visiting Camden. It is a small place and reservations are a must. The food is simply amazing. There are always nightly specials and many curries and other dishes on the menu. If they are offering Thai iced tea when you visit, be sure to try it. There are just so many... More
