Very popular locally-owned place that is always busy. The pad thai is especially good, but don't ask for a hotness level over two (out of five). Portion sizes are large enough for two moderately-hungry adults to split.

Small place in a strip mall in Oxford that serves very good Thai food. Menu is rather limited, but food is quite good ... fresh and nicely spiced. Service is about what you'd expect in a college town, OK but not great (our two entrees were brought out several minutes apart, for instance). Restaurant does not have alcohol license.

Very good, wholesome Asian food. Great for dine in or take out. They also have nice lunch specials. The staff is always friendly and polite. We go there often and happily recommend to others.

Rice and Spice offers excellent, healthy food that I enjoy once month. The spicy salad dressing is a bit too sweet for my taste. Servers are just the right level of attentive without being overly obsequious. I've never had a bad meal there. Only Pepsi products, so if you like Coca Cola, you're out of luck.

Riding the Trans America Trail from East to West coast throws all kinds of eating experiances your way, many of which are just plain unkind. Travelers familiar with Asia sometimes just must have a rice based dish and something that does not ferment for days in ones internal organs as is the case with so much American food. The three...

Small restaurant on the main drag through Oxford. But, a great restaurant. Tremendous value for money, great service and fantastic food. Another must visit.

Rice & Spice Thai Restaurant continues to offer fresh, tasty Asian dishes. Last visit we had Tum Yum soup [one with chicken, the other with shrimp]. Followed this with vegetarian spring rolls, pad kra prow [pork sauteed with garlic, onion, bell peppers, chili, broccoli, carrot and black beans], and pad king [chicken sauteed with fresh ginger, green onions, bell pepper,...

My family and I eat at Rice and Spice at least twice a month. The food is delicious. Everything that we've tried has been great but our favorites are Pad Thai, Cashew Chicken, Yellow Curry and Panang Curry. You pick the number of spice and we never go over a 2..and for the Panang a 1..pretty spicy, but delicious. They... More

My wife and I try to eat here at least once a week, as we find this our favorite restaurant in Oxford. The food is always freshly prepared with imaginative use of herbs and spices. In addition to being delicious, the food is healthful (just in case that matters to you). Our favorite dish is Pad Kra Prow, and the... More
