Delicious vegan options! - Edit

I got the coconut rice, general tsos cauliflower, and grilled asparagus with cashew cream sauce. It was all so delicious. I had to get another bowl of coconut rice because it was so tasty. It was like a dessert. Although I was little too full for it.

Only downside is they only allow one check per table (at least that's what the menu says), so be prepared to pay back the friend that buys the meal!

Pros: Separate vegan menu

This is a great date spot. My wife and I love it. They have tons of vegan options and it all tastes great. You do have to ask for the vegan menu, they have it separate. They also have a great drink selection. The food it really good, but it can be costly if you have a big party. My wife and I spend around $50-$60 without drinks.

Mediocre food for expansive price - Edit

Let me start by saying that any connection between Asian cuisine and the food served in this restaurant is purely coincidental. This restaurant is more like fusion tapas, which is great, but not Asian.

This restaurant has a vegan and vegetarian menu, which is nice. I had the salad trio, the mushroom dumpling and a side of coconut rice. The food was mostly bland and not very flavorful. The salad trio came with a cucumber salad that was nice, but needed some salt, a carrot salad that was way too sweet to the point of being unpleasant, and a Napa cabbage salad that tasted like someone just used watered-down sriracha as dressing. The dumplings had a texture similar to eggroll more than dim sum and were again, bland. Even the chili sauce that accompanied them was bland. The coconut rice was really nice and enjoyable.

The dishes here are tapas style, so they are appetizer size. This food was enough for one person (me), to get full, without any leftovers. For this I paid $15 which I feel is a high price for the quality and amount of food.

Pros: Vegan menu with many choices, The coconut rice is good

Cons: Food is mediocore, Price is high for the amount and quality of food

Superb! - Edit

Lively even on a Sunday night. Separate vegetarian menu with delicious, imaginative, and flavorful small plates. Highly recommended. Also serves meat.

Tasty asian inspired small plates - Edit

I've been to Bang several times and like that there is a separate vegan menu. You need to ask for the vegan menu. There are about 7 items on the menu, so there has always been plenty for me to choose from & my non-vegan spouse & friends have enjoyed sharing the vegan options as well. I particularly like the trio of veggie salads. The coconut rice is vegan also & very good. The last time I was there, the food was a little spicier than usual & the service uneven, but the food/service have been great all prior visits. It's a fun place & tends to be popular especially on weekends.

Pros: Separate vegan menu, Interesting/unique small plates
