Being from the west coast where great Asian food is in abundance, we have pined for the taste since moving to Maine. We have tried most of the restaurants from Ellsworth to Bangor and have found them to range from poor to moderate in quality. Until today we always avoided the Siam Orchid because of it's exterior appearance. We took... More

I really enjoyed my dinner at Siam Orchid. Hard to decide which entree to have since they all sound so good. Their plastic take-out containers are unique and will be saved for reuse. Looking forward to returning again to try other healthy meals.

Excellent Pad Thai; the Masaman curry is brilliant. My usual is the ginger soft-shell crabs, delicious, and buttery creamy inside. It, and its sister restaurant on Rodham Street in Bar Harbor are both worth the trip

Ordered the chicken pineapple and it was very salty. Seemed heavy on soy. The time was late, 8:30, and closing was 9:00 so maybe I just got a rushed order but I won't go back to find out.

I love Siam Orchid. The owners are great people! Their pad thai is different and delicious! Try it! The decor is great, the atmosphere is good, and there is definitely outdoor seating!

We love this place. Been eating at the Bar Harbor location for years, this one is new and just as good. Hatsana is the man! My girlfriend has gluten allergies and a lot of other dietary restrictions and they are always happy to make something special to order. Very personable service and very consistent.

Siam Orchid in Ellsworth is over priced. The service is SLOW and they charge for TEA! Sushi should NOT be hot. We ordered items and never received them, but they tried to bill us for them anyway. We will NOT be going back to this location.

I love Siam Orchid in Bar Harbor, and te location in Ellsworth is just as great. The food is always amazing, and the owner is so friendly and personable. The only problem I have with Siam Orchid.... I can never decide what to order as I have many favorite dishes! Great food, great value, great service!

The food here is great, it was very hot weather, so we both had salads (different ones) and both were wonderful and a good size- not overwhelming, but generous. The appetizers were delicous too. The dining room is quiet and attractive, and they have an outdoor area - which may be a bit noisy as it's near the road.
