Bangkok is great

Great food made fresh while you wait. Wonderful atmosphere and the people are outstanding. Must stop if you are in the Ellsworth area.

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.

The owner/chef and her daughter will make you feel like you've come to their house for dinner. The Laotian specials and other carefully prepared dishes were full of fresh flavorful (but not overpowering) spices. I had my first Maine lobster (in Maine) at this restaurant, so it will always hold a special place in my heart. :)

We were in Ellsworth shopping for our week stay in a cottage on Long Pond. It was rainy and cold and I really needed a bowl of noodle soup. I did a few google searches and the Bangkok Restaurant came up. We stopped at Edwards Natural Store in town and I asked one of the employees what they thought of... More

All the food here is great! Very authentic & delicious. The owner's have this great iced tea of their own blend: either served creamed or fruit. Mighty good!! They never need to write out your order, just do it all from memory and have never seen them make a mistake. Dining room is beautifully decorated with hand carved furniture. Great... More

Food was terrible. Nothing like it was 2 years ago. Food was cold not hot. Sauce was a mystery, very watery. Restaurant was empty, will not return again.

We eagerly went there because we had a wonderful dining experience there two years ago we we visited the Bar Harbor area. Sorry to say that this time was exactly the opposite. We arrived around 6 pm on a Friday night and the place was empty. There was a live entertainer singing to an empty place. Our waiter was friendly... More

We recently ordered a large takeout thinking we could eat several meals off it during a hectic time in our lives. Sadly we had to throw most all of it away. The food was absolutely terrible. Pad Thai was unrecognizable and awful. I don't know if the food had been sitting out since lunch or something. Definitely was not freshly... More

We have been going regularly to the Bangkok for 15 + years and it is without question the best Thai food in DownEast Maine. We love it!
