Our go-to Thai restaurant

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 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 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

We have eaten here three times. The first was excellent, the 2nd was so so and this time was excellent as well. Prior to going we checked the reviews for 2014 just to make certain that the experience of others was very good, and it was. Mmmmmm Tom Yum soup. Egg rolls so so and the main courses were excellent.... More

After visiting a lovely fishing village called Sorrento in Maine and after stopping at L.L.Bean outlet store, we went to the Bangkok Thai restaurant for lunch. It is housed in a nondescript building, but once you open the intricately carved doors, you enter another world. Even the young, slender waitress is wearing a pencil skirt of Thai silk with little...

One of my favorite places. The restaurant is always attractive and clean, and the food is very good. The staff is excellent -- they remember us and know what we want and are friendly and fun to talk with. I highly recommend this restaurant.

It is hard to know where to start when singing the praises of Bangkok Restaurant. The ambience is great--beautiful Thai artwork and hand carved furniture. The rooms are well lighted and clean. The service is polite, friendly and accomodating. Most importantly, the food is outstanding. We have been to many Thai restaurants on the East Coast and this restaurant tops... More

The customer is always treated like a VIP and the food is as fresh as it gets. The owner/head chef comes out of the kitchen on breaks to meet and great like you were a long time friend or family member. Moreover, her Thai food is the best I have ever had in a Thai restaurant. My favorites are traditional... More
