Best Thai cuisine

After visiting many Thai resturants in Maine I always use Cafe de Bangkok as the standard to compare all others to, a tough standard to meet.

Their Thai food is excellent and very nice choices! We really like their food and keep going back! They truly know their business and the food is exactly the way it should be, real Thai!

The lunch specials were delicious and cheap. 10.95 included several tasty options. Our favourite part was the the little bowls of soup as an appetizer. Sure the dishes were probably not completely authentic Thai but who cares? It was a simple and worth every penny. The dining room also includes a beautiful view of the river.

Take a bike ride along the beautiful Kennebec Rail Trail and stop here to rest for lunch. Window seats afforded us a view of the river with sturgeon jumping and eagles soaring. Amazing salt water fish tanks kept the kids occupied. The food is amazing but a little pricey for lunch. We go every year and have never been disappointed

This is probably the worst Thai food I have ever had. No taste, no quality, just bad. I'm not sure where the other diners ate but it could not have been here. They got our order wrong, the lunch box was terrible. Pepper tasting soup, tasteless mains, the place smells, the service is good but does not make up for... More

Our stop-over at this restaurant, near the end of the bicycle trail by the river, was a surprise for us. We did not expect an authentic and fussion food! We had the Wonton chicken soup, Pad see-Ew noodles with chicken and Traditional Pad Thai w/ chicken. The food was prepared very well, it was very tasty. We had Thai Iced... More

Sitting by a window was a pleasure & no wait at all. Tom Kha soup was perfect! It had a coconut milk base that was yummy w/el dente veggies like julienne carrots, broccoli, mushrooms & more. The Lunch Box choices included Salmon on lettuce in a smooth sauce that was perfect. Awesome presentation & equally delicious was the Pad Thai!... More

Lovely location with views of the Kennebec River! This Thai restaurant has been here for eleven years so they must be doing something right! A friend and I went for an early dinner last week. The service was kind of slow for not being very busy and there were no knives our table (nor on any other table from which... More
