We had the red curry with brown rice and shrimp pad Thai. Both were fantastic! They had a good, well-priced lunch menu that includes soup and salad. Very glad with our restaurant choice!

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

My friend stated the green curry was the best he had ever tasted. I had the avocado curry and the Pad Thai on another visit. Happy happy happy. This is a small space and is popular. The noise level can get a little high but what do you expect when people are really enjoying their food and company?! Parking on the street is metered until 9PM. If you go South one block there is free parking in the Thrift Store lot. A walkway through a small greenspace connects you with Main Street just three doors down from Rice.

“Maybe we're missing something?”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

We decided to try Rice Thai because of the good reviews. In 38 years of marriage, we have not been able to eat a meal that we had ordered 3 times and Rice Thai was that 3rd meal. The gyoza appetizer was 5 small dumplings that looked like they came from Trader Joe's. The Rama was described as stir fried spinach with peanut sauce. What we got was spinach that looked like it had been frozen, swimming in a plate full of green liquid, with a glob of congealed, thick peanut sauce on top. If there was any chicken in it, we couldn't see it. The Drunken Noodles were a brownish grey and slippery - no color. The beef was tough and chewy. We had never seen brown rice like what we were served. It was a reddish color, dry and tough, not the usual brown Jasmine Rice. We ate the gyoza appetizer, tried a bite of each entree and the rice, paid our bill and left. The waitress asked us if we wanted a box and when we said "no", she didn't bother to ask if anything was wrong - surprising because all the plates were full and nothing had been eaten. The restaurant was crowded which we took as a good sign. The service was good and the staff was friendly. Based on the other good reviews for this restaurant, I can only say, "see for yourself". We personally couldn't recommend it to anyone.

Really good food, modern, clean atmosphere and great location. Loved the Tom Yum Kai soup! A cool little downtown spot!

The best thai food I have had since I lived in Los Angeles. Flavors went well together. Friendly servers.
