“The best Laotian/Thai food in Maine.”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

This is the best of the 25+ Asian restaurants we have tried in Maine. The food has subtle flavors and every dish has a different sauce. This is a second generation restaurant; the first was in Connecticut. Here they have a farm where they raise veggies in season. There is a great harbor view from the deck but the dining room is small when outdoor seating isn't practical. Good food, good value and good people. Give them a try.

“Great food and friendly staff”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

The food is superb. It doesn't matter what you order, it's all great. We are happy they have some seating and it's not just take out. BYOB

“good food and great view”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

If you are tired of seafood while on the coast of Maine, give Laan Xang in Belfast a try. Stopped for lunch recently. It doesn't look like much, but the food is excellent and the view from the outside seating is awesome. My wife had the Pad Thai and loved it. This place is run with a very small staff, so if you have a big party, don't be surprised if you have to wait a while to get your food. And please don't expect elegance - just good Asian food.

“Decent asian food with nice outdoor seating”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Stopped for a vegetarian curry; they had several varieties. nice sized portions and tasty, though not the best I've ever had. I could have used a bit more of the jasmine rice to soak up the good sauce. The seating outdoors was just very pleasant and relaxed. Service seemed a bit haphazard, but friendly.

“Charming harborview Thai food”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

A breath of fresh air in Belfast. My family (ages 7-73) enjoyed a delicious dinner while gazing at the town activity and harbor traffic. Delightful fresh flavors, love the Pad Thai and Pho. Service was charming but unpolished. What do you want at a little hole-in-the-wall? Feels like a family-run restaurant, in the very best way. Trying hard to please, mostly accomplished. Besides the excellent food, they really hit a home run with the real estate: not a better deck in town. Enjoy!
