Small plates done Asian style. Sauces can be a little repetitive - seek your server's advice so dishes don't come out all the same. Phenomenal 'designer' martinis.

The location was perfect for us, as we were going to a concert at the Paramount Theater after dinner. The restaurant was attractive, and the service was excellent. Our server gave very helpful answers to our many questions, and her recommendation of how many small plates to order (two per person) was spot on. Tasty and interesting food.

Friends recommended that we try this, so we did. Went early (spouse, daughter and I) for dinner, and place was packed by the time we left. Food is kind of "Asian tapas," and excellent. Plates are NOT small, but I'd say "medium" sized. Waitress was very good, and properly but not overly attentive. She suggested 2-3 dishes per person, and... More

Bang has done a great job in creating interesting tapas that aren't over the top. We enjoyed a warm evening out on their terrace, savoring a delicious meal. Among our favorites were: the beet salad w/ginger vinaigrette and chevre (which our server, thankfully, recommended), fried calamari and szechuan veg. salad, crab pot stickers and tempura haricot vert "fries." The plates... More

The simplest ideas often bring about the greatest discoveries. Bang has cottoned on to the rise in small plate offerings so popular in Spanish & Italian restaurants & does it's Chinese take-on-it ! From vegetarian to traditional all tastes are catered for. They have an easy order menu system & a good Wine list too. Friendly service staff who didn't... More

This is one of our favorite resturants in C'ville. We take our out of town friends there all the time. The menu is quite extensive and there is something for everyone. The food is really tasty and the staff is friendly too. I would try and make reservations before going there, its gets crowded. Good place for a date or... More

We decided to take a side trip to Charlottesville to see UVA and Monticello and had no idea where to eat. Found Bang! using my smartphone and we were quite pleasantly surprised. The "Asian fusion tapas" are a great way for us to get a great variety to share, each very well composed. In addition to the food, we each... More

Uniquely Delicious ! That's how I'd describe this Asian fusion tapas restaurant. My wife and I spent a day in Charlottesville recently and I had seen Bang as one of my top picks for dinner that night via internet reviews. The wine guy at our wine tasting earlier that day confirmed it as a "must go to" and we weren't... More

We've eaten here a few times and found the food to be interesting and very good. Most of the time, though, we stop in for after-dinner drinks and dessert. They have a huge martini list which has something for just about every taste. I also LOVE the Chocolate 3-ways. It's chocolate cake, chocolate mousse and chocolate brulee. You get a... More
