My husband and I stumbled on this restaurant on a recent trip to Maine and were absolutely floored at how good it was. We lived in NYC for many years, and this place rates above 99% of Thai restaurants there. The food is fresh, delicious and very authentic (except for the few dishes that they put on the menu to placate the masses). Warning--when they say spicy they mean it! We ordered our spice level at a 4 out of 5. Even if you think you love spice, I would recommend not going higher than a 3. Their 4 is true Thai hot and will be too hot for even the most adventurous. If you are in Mid Coast Maine and love Thai, Bhurapar is not to be missed! Just wish is was closer to upstate NY.
