Great food. Excellent value. Especially good value mid week. Try the crocodile or the pork belly. Service is fast if you have to take off to the movies.

So called modern Asian or 'fusion' i.e. essentially adding lots of rich, sweet sauces and flavours, and a bit extra to the price tag, trying to glamorize Asian food for non-Asian customers. Plenty of authentic Asian food in Chatswood which offers better value for money. The decor at Rice Den is just cheap- although being 'modern Asian' it is meant... More

Food was new and unique Asian / Thai and presented in an attractive way. The entrees were exceptional- Lamb rolls / crispy fried prawn / shrimp = must try!. The sweets / desserts were notable too. A cosy little place with flame heaters. Will go again as there were more dishes to try.

You know how sometimes good food is hard to find in any city?? Well try this place and I guarantee that this will be the main topic of conversation. Food is average at best, prices are above standard and everything just feels a little contrived. In Chatswood it's better to stick with the fluorescent lighting, at least you are more... More

A red curry duck lunch special. This would have to be the best ever red curry I have had. Infused with a great flavour and I felt it was better tasting than the usual red curry. As good as my favourite green curry. A little side dish was added to the meal. Great atmosphere and music - come again

A small space having a big impact. Awesome food - creative and flavoursome. Funky vibe, and friendly service. Just what Chatswood needed

This place is quick, effective and awesome. We had a soft shell crab and some noodle dishes. The food was tasty and well presented. The service was spot on. They had an old coupon in the Sydney Entertainment Book 2013. Well worth the money.
