Great food

2 adults and 2 kids licked their plates clean! Wonderful service. All at a reasonable price. We love Thai food but as with any good type it can be hot or miss, this one was most certainly a hit. Our 3 and 1 year old couldn't stop asking for more.

I come here all the time just for the food cause the service is not always good. The server is always with a bad face and attitude. Last time I paid with cash my change was $4 and some change and when I noticed that I never got my change back and I asked for it her reply was "it's... More

I go to this place on a regular. The Combination rice, Ground beef with mint leaf, Angel wings and Crab fried rice are killer. I highly recommend River Kwai

We eat here about once per month. Excellent food. Always excellent service. Try the crab fried rice and chow mien.

This is a great little restaurant with good value. Even the beer is less than most places. The staff from the servers to the kitchen are nice and easy going. Although the menu is small, you may request your favorite Thai meal when not on the menu! Very quick and easy to get in and out in 30-45 minutes for... More

So my husband and I frequent this little gem.. They have a six dollar lunch special during the week which we love since it is the perfect lunch pontoon for us. When we do not get a lunch special we get the tom Kai Kai soup and the glass noodle with chicken and either the Choo chee or the pad... More

River Kwai was a mainstay restaurant to frequent by our biology lab at UC Riverside (from 1992-1995). The "Thursday special" was so awesome -- a spicy garlicky chicken dish served with so much fried rice that you had leftovers! I still remember after so many years! And the prices were about $3.50 for those awesome lunch-specials back then (and it... More

My favorite is the Spicey Chicken in coconut milk. Ask for a side of cucumbers, it adds to the flavor of the meal. It is about 6.00 dollars per plate for lunch, which also provides a cup of soup, small salad, and a wonton. We have been eatting there for at least 15 years. The location is not what it... More

We've been to Thailand several times and our favorite Thai restaurant is in the SF Bay Area. That said, the River Kwae in Moreno Valley is our second favorite Thai restaurant in California. The business lunch (served M-F 11:00-2:30 pm) is the best value and portions are generous. The business lunch includes a simple hot and sour soup with chicken... More
