A gem off the beaten path.

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... read 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!

We have always loved the Bangkok Restaurant but were very disappointed last sunday (Nov. 23) when we went there for lunch. First and foremost I have to commend the server (the owner's daughter) who was ALONE in the front of the house. She did a phenomenal job waiting on all the tables, running take-out, ringing people up, seating everyone and... More

My wife and I had dinner at Bangkok Restaurant. I had Pad Thai and she had Chicken With Cashew Nuts. Both meals were prepared with fresh ingredients and made and spiced to order. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and staff is very friendly.

We're familiar with several Thai restaurants in the greater Boston area. Thai food is one of our favorite cuisines. We were traveling in Maine and wanted a change from all that seafood so we thought we would try the Bangkok in Ellsworth, Maine. The place was very clean, almost over-decorated, and comfortable, but the food wasn't what we would identify... More
