This is sadly the best non-buffet style chinese in Bismarck/Mandan. It's not going to knock your socks off but if you are just looking for a good chinese lunch or dinner, this is probably your place.

Located in an historic Northern Pacific Railroad freight warehouse (2nd floor and above the City/County library), this authentic, family-owned Chinese restaurant offers arguably the best Chinese food in the state! That isn't just my opinion as it has a national award to prove it! The same family has been operating this restaurant for a number of years now, and its... More

Service was terrible. The meal was so-so...I will not eat there again. It is upstairs and the view is bad

We eat there about once a month and always seem to order the same thing although other items are just as good. The service is great but the place could use some updating.

This is the best in Mandan and Bismark area. The delivery is very quick,. Try the egg rolls with a touch of cinnamon as they are the best! We have been fans for quote a while now! Order now!!!!! Inside decor could use some updating though.

We had heard great things about this place and it smells good when you are at the library so we got takeout one night. We generally order the same dishes for takeout, 4 orders of kung po and Szechuan, 4 egg rolls and a small soup (only two of us eat soup) She said the order was $70, I had... More

Being someone with wheat allergies I understand that, it makes my choices really difficult and that sometimes that means that I can't choose what I'd like too. But it was REALLY frustrating to have a server tell me that I needed to just avoid breaded things like sweat and sour pork, or things with sauce. I asked about rice noodles... More

Rice Bowl was voted one of the top 100 Chinese restaurants in the United States. We go at least once or twice a month, usually for their lunch specials. Employees are friendly, and food is always hot and delicious. It is kind of in a hidden area of town which makes it even more special because it is like Mandan's... More

Had lunch at the Rice Bowl recently - it's a little hard to find but well worth the effort! The atmosphere was ok but the food was great. Sometimes Chinese food can be salty but this was perfectly seasoned and the china was unique. The egg rolls were crispy and perfect. My waiter could not have been nicer. I'll be... More

The cream cheese wontons were mostly onion and they give you a VERY SMALL amount of rice with your meal and if you want more you have to pay for it. That hardly seems right that a place PURPOSELY gives you a very small amount of something that is a STAPLE of the meal and charges you for it. I... More
