We liked the food especially the Pad Thai and portions were generous. The service was competent but lacked charm; more smiles and menu suggestions would have been appreciated.

Went for Valentine's dinner. No festive atmosphere, no special desserts or food for the occasion. The Fresh veggie rolls were good but I have had much better. More casual w/out table cloth. Seemed like they are going thru some remodeling of some sort. It was also too cold for my taste. The servers were friendly but confused over what we... More

For a Thai restaurant out of the dozens in the area I think it was ok for a quick bite, but I wouldn't try to impress anyone bringing them there. The service was nice and they were super attentive, but the entrees were not spectacular. We were the last to leave and they didn't say a word until we were... More

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
