Rice & Spice continues its quality service.

Have been at Rice & Spice several times now for the best Asian food in Oxford. This is a Thai restaurant owned and managed by Thai people. We had our usual Tam Yum soup with shrimp as a starter - skipping an appetizer. We followed this with pad kra prow [pork sauteed with garlic, onion, bell... read more

We have dinner out at least once a week, and the third or fourth time per month we go to Rice & Spice. We have always had an enjoyable, tasty meal there. The place has become popular, especially with Ole Miss students and, since Rice & Spice does not take reservations, sometimes there is a wait for a table. This... More

We order to go from this place all the time. Best rice at a great price. The restaurant itself is always pretty full but they still get to go orders out quickly. Never had a bad rice combination Before.

I had my first Thai dish in Thailand, out side of Utapao Air Base, in 1967. It was a dish of Tom Yum soup, although I did not know what th dish was called. All I knew was that it was very spicy and very good. Rice & Spice serves an excellent Tom Yum, made with shrimp or chicken, lemon... More

This isn't southern food, and the name of the restaurant sounds boring. For this reason it took us a long time to try Rice & Spice. However, once we tried it we were amazed. When my family visited town I took them on a tour of many of the famous restaurants. At the end of the trip I asked what... More

We were visiting Ole Miss and I had looked up restaurants prior to our trip as we were unfamiliar with the area. This one was highly reviewed and popular. We had called before hand as I had read it's small and the waiting area is almost nonexistent, to see if we could reserve a table. Whomever answered the phone told... More

This is the best thai food you will ever eat! If you come to Oxford and don't eat Rice & Spice then you are missing out! When my friend first introduced this restaurant to me I was so mad that I had not known about it all along. Rice & Spice was the only thing I wanted to eat for... More

I live in Dallas and have many amazing Thai restaurants near me....but when I go to Oxford....I make having a meal at Rice & Spice a MUST DO! This is a small restaurant so plan on either getting there early or waiting fora bit! It's also great for take out! I actually love having dinner here better because I love... More

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.
