A Plethora of Small Plates

I have eaten at Bang several times, and always have a fun and interesting meal. I love the small plate concept where you have the ability to try several different dishes. We had pork spring rolls that were delicious....they had a bit of a bite to them, but not too much. The roasted cauliflower... read more

Bang serves wonderful small plates with an Asian focus. Set in an old house near the downtown mall, the restaurant has a spartan, modern interior (with a red backlit bar dominating one wall). The food is well-prepared, with interesting flavor combinations. Service is friendly.

Had a large group of family members and we ordered a sampling of several items from the menu. Even those who are not big Asian food fans had something they enjoyed. The Tuna and Spicy Crab roll was wonderful and the Chicken Curry was as good as I have had anywhere. The Cocconut Rice was so good. The drink menu... More

Three of us shared 6 tapas- a trio of salads, fried rice balls, spring rolls, dumplings, chicken satay, and firecracker shrimp. We really didn't need to get the salad because each dish was garnished with a salad that was in the trio. We enjoyed everything we ordered. The martinis were also good. It was late and we were hungry but... More

This is a hidden gem a street off of the downtown mall area. We sat outside and it was so pleasant. Ordered 6 tapas and all were fabulous. Got martinis as well which were amazing. Definitely will be coming back here!

Enjoyed the food and drink very much. The drinks were particularly good and the tapas style menu had many appealing choices. The service was uneven - very attentive at times but less so at other times. We would definitely go back as the service problems may have been the result of the big crowd or understaffing that night.

Great tapas across the street from the South Street Inn. Nice outdoor area for eating and best math is in the city.

really great food! small dishes, but great for sharing. My friend and I got 6 dishes to share and it was the perfect amount. Totally would recommend. My friend is vegan and they had plenty of options for her, and I enjoyed her vegan food too! Would highly recommend, and the atmosphere is very nice.

Finally made it here after 6 years. Arrived early (5:40) and got a booth. Service was great the entire evening, and I'm not sure an empty plate or unfilled water glass stayed on the table for longer than a minute. Had heard the martinis were very good and they did not disappoint. Had the "filthy" vodka martini and a "Banghattan"... More
