|Aug 1st, 2007||Best of the Gold Coast 2007, Baang Cafe, Greenwich – Baang Cafe,Best of the Gold Coast, Greenwich Magazine, 2007
“Sex in the City meets Iron Chef’s is one way to describe BAANG CAFE & BAR in Greenwich. This Asian inspired restaurant has long been the spot of choice for anyone wanting to go out, not just out to dinner. Waiters clad in black, ultramodern decor and pulsating music contribute to the lively New York City vibe, as does the large bar area that attracts just as many people looking to hang as it does those looking to eat. The food is consistently fabulous. And almost every dish is designed to be shared, creating a little-of-this-and-little-of-that dining experience. Night owls will be happy with the hours of dinner service(till 11 p.m. on weekends; 10 p.m. during the week).” Greenwich Magazine August 2007

|Jan 31st, 1999||1999 Baang Cafe & Bar, CT, N.Y.T. (reviewed again) – DINING OUT; Taking a Pan-Asian Approach With Flair
RESTAURANT REVISITED It has been four years since Baang Cafe and Bar (1191 East Putnam Avenue, Riverside; 203-637-2114) opened with a flourish, its flashy decor and fusion cooking setting off sparks. Well, Baang’s lively cuisine continues to dazzle, a creative marriage of Asian and Western ingredients and techniques. We had feared Baang’s style might fray around the edges and seem old, but this has not happened, as we happily discovered on a recent visit. Baang’s many signature dishes — crackling calamari salad, crispy spinach, pan-fried pepper oysters and tempura tuna sashimi, for instance — were still exciting and wonderful. And the serving staff , always a Baang asset, seem as energetic as ever. The restaurant’s one big negative remains a super-high decibel level. Even so, Baang still deserves its rating of Excellent.
|Apr 13th, 1997||Baang Cafe, Greenwich, N.Y.T. Article – When a Restaurant Improves With Age
BAANG CAFE AND BAR When this knock-out looking cafe opened two years ago in Riverside, it introduced Western-Asian fusion cooking to Fairfield County. Fortunately, Baang is going strong, the food still Excellent. Virtually everything is a delight — provided the diner is open-minded about sometimes startling combinations. Our special favorites, crackling calamari salad (with the squid very lightly breaded and fried, then tossed in hot chili oil and lime, served on a bed of greens), charred rare tuna (just beyond the sushi stage, with avocado and a tomato-wasabi vinaigrette) and sizzling whole fish (marinated in ginger, with a red chili dipping sauce) are dynamite. And the crispy spinach side dish, deep-fried to gossamer crispness in soy oil, is a must. Desserts, like the chocolate pagoda and pineapple-coconut upside down cake, are spectacular — if you have room. Dinner entrees run from $18 to $32. 1191 East Putnam Avenue (U.S.1), Riverside; 203-637-2114; major credit cards accepted. Hours: Noon-2:30 P.M. Monday-Friday, 6 P.M.-10 P.M. Monday-Thursday, to 11 P.M. Friday-Saturday, 5-11 P.M. Sunday. Reservations accepted only for groups of six or more
|Dec 31st, 1995||Baang Cafe & Bar, Greenwich, NYT Article – DINING OUT;What Really Tickled the Palate in 1995
BAANG CAFE AND BAR (1191 East Putnam Ave., Riverside; 637-2114), a fusion of East and West, opened last spring. Almost everything is topnotch, from starters to desserts like lime-filled eclairs and a toasted coconut-banana tart. We also recall a crackling calamari salad with a hint of hot chili oil and light lime-miso vinaigrette, gossamer yet crispy spinach and rare tuna with a crunchy edge in a tomato wasabi vinaigrette.
|Mar 26th, 1995||Baang Cafe, rated “Excellent” New York Times – DINING OUT; A Glorious Fusion of East and West
ORIENTAL and Occidental fuse beautifully at Baang Cafe and Bar, just south of Exit 5 of Interstate 95 in Riverside. The culinary core is Chinese, with Japanese and Thai touches; the ingredients a mix in which some Western elements shine. The results are so so fresh, so inventive and full of real flavor that you may never return to the banality of so many Chinese restaurants.
