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

A group of friends and I visited to celebrate a birthday and we were all pleased with the food! I personally loved the concept of Asian tapas, I had not experienced it before; only the traditional tapas which I also love. One of the things I liked about Bang is that their vegetarian options are varied and multiple. They also... More

Great food with experienced and helpful staff and an amazing drink menu. My wife prefers and mock tails and there were plenty for her to choose from. I say go tice because all of the food was amazing but we couldn't have it all in one night. Don't let the outside fool you. It looks like a house from the... More

My friends and I went for restaurant week. We each ordered something different and shared...all 3 appetizers and entrees were fantastic. Not one single complaint from any of us. We were too full at the end to truly pay attention to the desserts, but the bites we took were yummy! The ambience was nice, drinks were delicious...definitely a successful evening... More

Bang offers $6 martini and tapas specials every Wednesday--it's the best way to conquer Hump Day and cruise into your weekend. Also, their menu is a unique offering to other options in and around Cville (Asian tapas). I've never had phenomenal service/food, but I've also never had a reason to complain. All in all, a solid bet especially if you... More

With vegetarian friends in town, I was not keen on denying my carnivorous tendencies for a purchased meal out. A local friend made the great suggestion of Bang!. "Asian-inspired tapas" was an interesting description, I kept thinking why isn't it "dim sum"? Answer: great variety of food and an intriguing bar menu. With more than a third of their menu... More

After a recommendation from our B&B of where to get pre dinner drinks we found our selves really enjoying Bang! We had a few of their delicious martinis. The bartenders, even though they were swamped, we're very attentive.

Low quality ingredients lack freshness & doom novel concepts. Tried previously ~1.5 yr ago and forgot why didn't return. Never again. Lettuce out of a bag, potatoes and soy from can. Freezer burnt tuna sashimi. Artificial flavors in martinis. No thanks.

I am so sorry you were unhappy with your meal at Bang. I do, however, have to point out flaws with your review. Our lettuce is not from a bag, it either comes from a local purveyor we've had a relationship with for some 20 years, or in the case of our "lamb wraps", it is iceberg. We use the... More
