Absolutely first rate

For a restaurant on the second floor of a library building, this place is absolutely fantastic. They provide excellent service in a family friendly atmosphere and the food is the best Chinese food we have had in a very longtime. The choices are extensive and the prices are reasonable.

The beef and broccoli was really good, and the delivery time was also very quick. I was not a fan of their homemade egg rolls, the wrap had a cinnamon flavor to it and is not what I was expecting when I bit into it. The fried rice has nothing but rice. There are no veggies mixed in and no... More

I eat at Rice Bowl at least once a week. The food is wonderful, always very fresh. The service is very efficient.

The service was excellent but food just ok. We had lunch here & soup was just lukewarm. My cashew chicken had plenty of cashews but otherwise was mostly vegetables with very little chicken. My husband's sweet & sour pork was average. Rice & soup were included in the price which was a decent price for lunch. We would not choose... More

Before we got here, my husband already warned me to lower my expectations. I love Chinese food so he was kinda giving me a precaution. First of all, the restaurant is in a bad location. Like bad. You have to pass through some smelly stairs. The ambience was so so. Er, really needs to have that Chinese feel. There's little... More

Good customer service. Food was ok...came out fast and hot. Egg drop soup was really thick and bland, wouldn't order it again. Mongolian Beef was tasty as was the Sweet and sour chicken. Large portions with plenty to bring home for reasonable price. Would eat there again if passing by but wouldn't go out of the way again for it.

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

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.
