Great menu selection, authentic Thai dishes. If you know something you want that is not on the menu, they will prepare it for you. I have drunken noodles, my husband had a noodle bowl. Both were excellent. Not very spicy. If you like hotter food, ask for the "spice tray". Only 3-4 small tables inside, 4-5 tables outside. Go at... More

While most people wouldn't go to the Maine waterfront for Thai/Laotian food, this tiny spot is well worth it. My vegetable and tofu curry was crispy vegetables, a hot sauce, and tender rice. The chive dumplings were hot, slightly crisp and a real treat on a rainy day. There's also take out for those who want to eat along the... More

My son and I stopped in for a quick snack while walking around town. He had a yellow curry, and I just had a Vietnamese iced coffee. We were so delighted with the items we had, that we persuaded the rest of the family (my parents and my brother) to come back with us later that same day for dinner!... More

I was more than surprised by the large portion of Panang Curry and Steamed Dumplings I ordered on my first visit to Laan Xang. The service, portion, flavor all exceeded my expectations. Sitting outside on the patio, watching the traffic on both street and harbor while eating reminded me of a time nearly 50 years ago in a country far... More

This is a small place that is easily overlooked, but absolutely worth visiting!!! I stopped in for a quick lunch with my husband. They can alter most dishes to suit a variety of dietary restrictions. (For me, that means vegan.) Everything was as we ordered it. The waitress was friendly and prompt. I had the vegetables with garlic sauce and... More

The food is very good, and more authentic than most Thai restaurants offer; the restaurant is open year round, but only in the summer does the restaurant offer the Laotian sausages my visiting son in law loves to eat (they are made by the owner's mother who visits then). Since I live in town my wife and I usually do... More

I eat here often because the food is always fresh, tasty and affordable. Best to eat here on a warm sunny day when you can enjoy the outdoor porch and view. Otherwise take out is fun and be advised the bathroom is located across the street.

For those that love Asian food, this is the best in Belfast. My wife and I love to visit in the summer and eat out on the deck.

Ordered take out. Had not eaten here before and didn't want to drive to Camden. I am so glad I did. The food was hot, Fresh and a lot of meat in the dish and enough for 2 meals for me. Hands down better than what I had in Camden a month ago. This is my new favorite lunch spot... More
