Well prepared both chinese and japanese items

New restaurant offering both Chinese and Japanese items including sushi and bento boxes. Visited at lunch offering several combination lunches including bento boxes. Food looked good and dining companion was very pleased. I had Gen'l Tsao chicken well prepared and excellent. Service also very good.

A really cute, elegant but small Japanese/ Chinese restaurant. Everything is fresh, the sushi selection is excellent & delicious. The entrees are great. Love the miso soup & salad with ginger dressing. Bento boxes are available at lunch time.

Restaurant is small and clean. The Sushi was very fresh, great cuts of fish. My wife had Pork Fried Rice and it was full of pork and other goodies, nicely made! Service was fast and at a fair price. Highly recommend. Has great asian fusion menu

Rice looks like the usual strip-mall, hole-in-the-wall Chinese.. Do not be fooled. Rice offers high-quality Chinese and Japanese with beautiful fresh sushi. The service was friendly and efficient during my visit with my partner. Prices are reasonable for the quality.

I have been to this place many, upon many times... I usually go with sushi. Today, I decided to have the Salmon Teriyaki Bento Box for lunch. Let me say how wonderful my meal was! Lunch had to be in and out for me. But the quality and taste of how they prepared this meal (along with the price) makes... More

After two visits in the past where the service was poor our most recent visit was pretty decent. Perhaps third time is the charm. The food is good, but I wouldn't say great. Perhaps above average for Dover since there are very few Chinese restaurants to choose from. The other Chinese restaurants in Dover are fast food counters or buffet... More

After waiting for about 10 mins. & looking at the take out menu, we got seated in this small place. None of the combination dinners on the take out is available inside. When... More
