Unique menu, expertly prepared

This is not your run of the mill thai restaurant. They have the standby dishes like pad thai and drunken noodles, but they have a selection of other amazing dishes too. The short ribs, or crispy duck, or crispy pork belly are amazing. Do not miss up an opportunity to try this place.

Loved what i ordered, the garlic lovers beef dish with jasmine rice. It was so tender and flavorful, many delicious flavors in this, also we ordered beef fried rice which was excellent. The spring rolls are perfectly done, great presentations and good service! Will dine here again!

Rice and Spice has been our favorite Thai restaurant for a few years now. They have an excellent variety of dishes for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Their pad thai, pad woon sen and pad seeuw are always excellent, as is their Thai iced tea. For appetizers, I highly recommend the crab rangoon in acream-cheese sauce. Their vegetables always taste fresh... More

Rice & Spice is tucked away in the same shopping center as Red, Hot and Blue...Telegraph and Beulah Roads. Food is good, not the best Thai around (Thai Cafe, Bangkok Noodle) the Springfield area, and the service was nice. Don't take more than a couple of friends with you....the place is tiny.

The service was friendly and welcoming. They took care of us while waiting for our friends. The drinks came quickly as did the food after we ordered. They welcomed us to relax and visit. Food was delicious and good quantity.

Rice and Spice is located in a strip mall so at first it's not impressive. However, if you're into great Thai food at a reasonable price this place is excellent. I recently had Hoi Ba, a special, which is steamed mussels with galangal, lemongrass, thai chilis, and fish sauce. It was served in a clay pot. It was unbelievable. My... More

I've actually ate at this location on several locations and each meal has been quite tasty and the service is pretty solid. The Lunch rush from the Ft. Belvoir personal can make getting a table quite challenging, but if you show up by 11:40AM your usual good to go. I would strongly recommend this Thai rest. to all fellow business... More

My family tried Rice & Spice on Friday, and it we were surprised at how good it was! We tried the panang curry with chicken, the crispy duck, and the drunken noodles with beef. All were outstanding. I recommend this place 100%. The restaurant is beautiful inside, and very modern. Defininitley a "must-try." This is going to be a huge... More

Great place for lunch - but come early, this place gets packed! And no wonder: the food is tasty, the prices are great, and it's across the street from Ft. Belvoir. The place is emptier on weeknights, but does a very brisk take-out business as well. If you're looking for some place pretty to relax and hang out, this probably... More

There's something to be said for the beauty of the space inside Rice & Spice. Structural lamps overhead echo the famous shapes of architecture and stylized costume hats. Brightly executed wall pictures mix swirls of color with detailed symmetry on one wall, while a sort of monster painting on another wall provides a totally different vibe. Somehow it all works...
