My first time trying Thai cuisine. I had the Pineapple Chicken Curry. It was just the right blend of sweet and spicy. White or brown rice is served on the side. Thai iced tea was also very good. We walked to the restaurant, so parking wasn't an issue for us as others have mentioned.

Clean, attractive restaurant, freshly prepared food, attractively served. Good for take out or eat in. They will present food on platters for serving in your home -- appropriate for entertaining.

Needing a quick late lunch, we stopped here close to their 3:00 o'clock lunch closing time. They were very accommodating and prepared our food immediately. We all had curry, three different types, but they were all excellent. Each curry came with white rice and a green salad with a small spring roll. For the price, it was a lot of... More

I lucked out with timing and came to Rice Thai at 11:30 am, well before the crowd hit at noon. I was underwhelmed given the ratings here and on Yelp. I hope I just got a random bad meal. I ordered the Pad Seuw, which I usually prefer to Pad Thai because you get more veggies in this dish. The... More

After trying it the first time, I had to go back again that week to eat more! I've tried the Veggie Delight, teriyaki chicken, green curry, pad thai and others and they were all fresh (lots of bean sprouts) and delicious. I had not heard of Blanket Shrimp before, but I'm hooked now. The service was excellent both times, even... More

Never disappointed with this place. One of the few places in south bay where you can get amazing thai food variety for attractive prices. Their service is amazing, always courteous, quick. Ambiance is neat, food is delicious. Have been dinning in as well as getting take outs atleast twice a month from this place. If you work/live in Palo Alto,... More

My favourit dish is drunken noodle. It is quite spicy and the taste is unique. Everyone will find something they like from the menu. Parking is difficult so try to avoid lunch rush.

Always very good food and service, it's our go to place when we think of Thai food. Drunken noodle, Pad Se Yew, and outstanding fish in green curry sauce are a few of our favorites. The pumpkin curry and pad thai noodles are also great.
