This used to be one of our favourite places, but had not been for a while. On our latest visit I was shocked by the whole downhill appearance. No centre lights on. One of the staff turned them on and the boss turned them off. The waiter was dressed in an un-ironed and very creased shirt, grubby jeans and trainers,... More

The owner is a very rude person. You would think someone who opens a business where there will be alot of face to face interactions would be a friendly and polite person. Had a very bad experience there and would not go again. He treats his employees bad and disrespectful. The food is good but I cant support a place... More

Group of our friends went to RICE for lunch, the food was not there and whenever it was filled it was in small portions and there was only one waiter running around. At the end of our lunch my friend called in the owner to mention these deficencies, he came and misbehaved and told that you should not come to... More

We have been here quite a few times whenever we visit Burlington and have always enjoyed it. This time however there were a few problems. The food was not that hot & in fact the vegetables were almost cold. I did mention it to the server, but he just mumbled something about it being full on! Most of the food... More

DO NOT go to this restaurant, this restaurant was easily my favourite for a very long time now, but I sadly will NEVER go there again. Last night I was eating the bread they set out and a baby cockroach immediately ran out of my piece. I could easily identify it as a cockroach, so I quickly killed it, and... More

This place is great. I LOVE their chana masala (never too spicy, just perfect) and have it every time I go. Their buffet is reasonably priced and a few selections for vegetarians - which is great! Sometimes I wish they would serve the water quicker but otherwise no complaints.

I was invited here for lunch by a colleague. I am not accustomed to eating Indian Cusine as previous experiences with other Indian cusine restaurants left me unable to know what to order or trying to eat something that was not to my taste. I was pleasantly surprised with the tasty dishes, especially the selection of salads and vegetables. I... More

The best thing was they were open until ten o'clock and I was hungry at 9:35! The food was okay, nothing special but better than typical chain fare (US, Canadian, etc). My ice tea came out of a bottle and was sweetened, which nearly gagged me. The Naan bread was good, the shrimp curry underwhelming, but as I said, better... More

When we order Indian, we order from Rice. So tasty! We used to live near little India in TO and Rice is right up there with our favourite Little India favourites. We have dined in, ordered out & tried the buffet lunch. The buffet is not the greatest....quality is good....just lackng choices. We order a la carte so we can... More

Rice offers a daily lunch buffet. Weekdays, it's $9.99 plus tax, a reasonable price to pay for an all-you-can-eat buffet. However, the curries were bland - the butter chicken was somewhat tasteless, the tandoori chicken was cold, the goat curry consisted of large chunks of goat that were bony and fatty. The vegetable curries were OK. Bottom line - if... More
