Best thai in Maine

My husband and I love this place. Hands down best authentic thai food in Maine and they will spice it to your taste from very mild (me) to super hot (my husband). The food presentation is creative, the atmosphere is clean and cozy, and the generous portion sizes give the Bangkok added value. The... read more

The Bangkok Restaurant is a wonderful place to go for a meal if you have a hankering for Thai food. The menu is wide. The service is impeccable. The atmosphere is elegant. The staff are friendly and helpful.

We love Thai food, and have it often, but this is not the place to get it. My family walked in and everything was clean and very “sparkly”. Lots of fancy pictures, art, and glitz. We thought this will be great. We walked into the dining room and it was virtually empty. Should have taken that as a clue. We... More

This was probably the only place open around 10 pm late October on a Sat. night. I really appreciate the hostess letting me in. I was starving from the drive up from Portland, and superbly whetted from peak fall colors. The take out was awesome. Just the right amount of coconut milk, perfectly balanced with peanuts and herbs.

We enjoy Chinese food but try this place on occasion. This was only my third visit in several years but each time it gets better. Service is always excellent and we always try something different. The scallops in garlic sauce is delicious and my husband tried the shrimp with a spicier sauce which he enjoyed very much.

We were very excited about this restaurant and it appeared to be very popular. Somehow there was a communication breakdown between the kitchen and the waitress because they were obviously over capacity and just kept taking orders. We waited about 30 minutes without any food...or appetizer... There was a much lager party that we overheard had been waiting almost an... More

I. Know I can always count on incredible food when I visit the Bangkok. Unfortunately, the service is incredibly slow. On my last visit, after an hour watching guests around me get 2 courses, I finally asked for my meal to be packed to go. My daughter had to get back to work. It still took another half hour to...

The pricing and portions were well balanced and the quality was top notch! The decor was as beautiful as the owner/cook.

We've made it our favorite restaurant in Ellsworth for several years. The family is very welcoming and friendly. But it can be slow--over an hour to be served late Friday evening this summer. It didn't seem very busy, but was understaffed, and we're cautious about taking family or friends there when the wait is that long.
