Fresh and generous

The food is very fresh and the portions generous. The mango rice is delicious and the combo combo app was well done as well. The Tom yum soup was well spiced and huge . Our waitress was so patient with us when we expressed an interest in learning how to fold our napkins into lotus blossoms. If... read more

It's too bad this food made me feel ill because the atmosphere was good. Service was fine. I wanted to like it but when you leave a restaurant with a belly ache it's not a good thing.

I love the food here. I had the Bangkok Garden and it had so many veggies cooked just right. My husband likes the pad thai

Fantastic Thai food without having to go to Boston! This restaurant has a great setting on the Kennebec River and great food to go along with it. We like the "box" lunch option for a mid day meal. You'll not be disappointed if you select this restaurant. Good service, good food, good value, nice setting.

A popular eatery in the historic area. We had fresh spring rolls which were very good. I also had a very good won-ton soup with very light ,delicate won-tons. My entree was a very generous portion of pad Thai with Chicken. My husband had spicy lemongrass soup which he enjoyed very much. He had Drunken Noodle dish which was nice... More

I live on the coast and we travel inland to Hallowell for the best sushi. I absolutely love everything about this place. The view, the decor, the staff, and the food are all top notch. I'm so glad I found this place!

What a wonderful place. This is a five star restaurant. White tablecloths. The best view of the Kennebec River in the City of Hallowell. Clean. Raw items available all over the menu. The food is delicious.

Met friends there for an early dinner. We shared an appetizer and split three ways the Pad Thai and Massaman Curry. It was plenty for three ladies but if I were with my husband we would have each ordered a full portion. Partly the reason is that the dishes were so good I could have eaten more. Oh yes, very...

We absolutely love Cafe de Bangkok--we have been coming here for many years and it is our favorite restaurant in the area; they are unfailingly reliable with regard to both their good food and good service. For an appetizer, if you like things with some heat, you should try the Tom Yum soup. Then, for an entree, the Massaman Curry... More

Went for lunch. Squid salad, wow. Genuine, tasty & well presented. All of our 4 dishes were lacking nothing in personal style, technique & SOUL. I can't wait to bring a krue there and just let them feed us!!!! The style suggests what big flavor/texture that Thai street food maybe, if i was ever there. I have not but if... More
