Funky city vibe in a small mountain town

This place is great. The food is wonderful - flavorful, fresh, exciting. It's a small space so it's a little loud. If you;re alone, sit at the bar and get the pho and big pot of green tea and watch the chef battle the flames with his wok. Highly recommended.

Busy small place that we had not been in to for a year or so. We had the Boc choy that was very good, the asparagus was advertised a spicy but was not very. The disappointment was the special, it said curried Mahi but we could taste no curry and when we asked they said it was "dusted" with curry.... More

We just finished an outstanding dinner at Rickshaw. The service was efficient and the food was fresh and creative. The red curry soup was excellent as was the lamb. I would definitely return and would highly recommend this restaurant.

This is a don't miss. We absolutely love this place, and the woman who owns it does a stellar job in creating a unique menu of fantastic, high quality food. The restaurant is small, so come early and get your name on the board!

Whether it is warm enough to sit outside or you eat in the cozy space inside, this is a "wow" experience. It is street food at its best, think Pok Pok in Portland. We never miss a visit when we are in Ketchum.

I've visited Rickshaw several times during my visits to Ketchum. I always tell myself that I will try somewhere else, but end up finding a seat here. The food is always unique and delicious and the service is perfect.

Super cool, very small place that will just knock your socks off. Totally not what you'd expect in Ketchum. But Rickshaw will really amaze you with the quality and complexity of the food. Awesome spot.

No reservations taken, so have a cocktail. The menu is not large, has enough variety to satisfy all. The exhaust is not powerful enough to remove all strong kitchen orders from lobby area. Better to sit outside. Staff are friendly and helpful

Because we were early in the season and in the evening, we had no wait to get a table. Even better, we got one outside as the interior was small, darker and a bit noisy. We split a bottle of rosé which went nicely with the potstickers, squid, lamb and the fish soup. We liked the flavors but weren't blown... More
