Food was excellent. Each order had a taste of its own and was really well made. However they expected us to eat the chicken curry without giving us proper crockery and cutlery!! It had so much gravy but no one cared to even ask us. The ambience is too noisy, but friendly. So, depends on your mood. The furniture was... More

Have been here before a few times & had liked it. Tonight we went to celebrate our children's first wedding anniversary. They arrived right before us & ordered drinks. I asked for a glass of wine & told the server I wanted it to toast their anniversary. Besides never even wishing them well, the wine never arrived. I asked for... More

Bang! is just a really fun, really cool place to have dinner. As others have mentioned, the martinis are great. My brother-in-law had the Sin City, which turned out to be a good choice. We ordered a ton of food. It came out really, really fast so keep that in mind. We probably would have been better off ordering a... More

Bang is popular for its tapas and its cocktails. It is a perfect restaurant for a girls' night out or a date night.

I love Bang- when I lived in Cville it was a favorite and on a recent return visit it lived up to my memories. The drinks are fabulous, I recommend the Sin City. The menu is varied, and some dishes are more successful than others. Favorites on our recent visit included the Firecracker Shrimp, the Goat Cheese Dumplings and the... More

This was a recommendation of a friend and 3 of us went without a reservation on a Friday night - able to sit immediately! I was with some pretty picky martini drinkers and they both commented that they were made exactly as ordered. We went with suggestions of the waiter for food and was not disappointed. We started with the... More

Didn't even know this place existed until friends invited us to go along with them. A plain Jane place as far as decor is concerned, and the tables inside are rather crowded together. Our wait person was cheerful and helpful. The bill of fare offers a huge selection of Asian-inspired tapas and specialty alcoholic drinks. We ordered about five or... More

This popular restaurant is located only 2 blocks from the historic main street located in an old refurbished house. We dined on the front porch on a rainy evening...luckily we arrived early on a Thursday evening (with no reservations) because it quickly filled with diners. The menu included asian fusion small plate items and new-age martinis (see pics). We enjoyed... More

We went there on a Sunday night for a family celebration. We took a table in the small garden. The atmosphere and service were great. They have a very rich drinks menu. I chose mango-tango and really enjoyed it. The food is mostly Asian style tapas and all the dishes that we ordered were delicious. It was great dining experience.... More
