What a refreshing change from all the other tired and stodgy Asian quick eat places in Chatswood. So clean and light without all the oily fried stuff elsewhere. A really good selection and range of popular dishes ... Please stay open all day and don't close at 3 pm only to open at 5pm again would be my only request:)

Great find! Quick service, had the duck rice, soft shell crab and pork belly. Divine! Well priced and the asahi is cold! I'll be back.

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
