A Good Asian Tapas Experience

Visited Bang on a Sunday with a couple of friends from school and it was overall a good visit. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating and both areas provide a great atmosphere. There are two menus, one with drinks and with food. The drink menu has a variety of cocktails, although... read more

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

The service and food were excellent, and the ambiance in the outdoor terrace was great, but for the boisterous ladies at the table next door who were sauced on martinis.

Yes, I was with a large group. The service was as good as it could be in that situation, and the cocktails were really good. I was expecting the food to be better, though. The menu sounded inventive and interesting, and I had three plates, the best being the tuna and mango sashimi spoons. The pork tacos with wasabi slaw... More

We went here to enjoy a casual anniversary night out. The martinis are fab and the tapas is delicious. Wish we lived close enough to go more often. The martinis are a little pricey but that's their specialty so you have to have one, two or three...

Once a favorite, recently lacking in service, but tonight.....an all time low. We arrived at 5:25 p.m. expecting to get an early table (they say they don't take reservations for groups fewer than 6 people) on Valentine's Day. We arrived at the same time as 3 other couples and were met at the door by someone who brusquely informed us... More

Recommended by the Inn...walked out the front door, crossed the street and we were sitting at bang. Waitress was so helpful and we picked some delicious dishes to share. They even had French press at your table for you coffee drinkers!

I hosted our office holiday party this year at Bang and it was quite a success. Beyond the friendly service of the two staff dedicated to our group, we were very pleased with the food platters and specialty martinis concocted for our group. I was 36w pregnant the event of the event and appreciated how hands off the execution was... More

I recommend starting your visit with a Prickly Pear drink - excellent drink! Group of 3 & we ordered 9-10 items. All were very good, you can't good wrong with anything here. I highly recommend the beef & shrimp pho, edamame, wild mushroom dumplings, crab pot stickers, pork spring rolls, Asian donuts. Wasn't sure ahead of time what to expect... More

If you're going for the mixology and the bartenders, this place is 5-star. Excellent martinis and cocktails made with a flair and served in a frozen glass by some of the best bartenders in town! The food, which is served tapas-style, has been going down hill recently. The menu has grown, but the quality has not. The last few times... More
