Rice & Noodles is a great, reliable lunch place - with a huge menu of hard-to-find dishes. Seating can be cramped during lunch, so arrive early so you can study the menu carefully -- lots of discoveries waiting for you in there. Taro and other traditional deserts, thai sodas, and macaroons. Recommended.

I can't count how many times I've been to Rice and Noodles. I like to keep my options open so I make it a point to myself to try something different on their menu each time. Food is always consistently delicious and fresh. They get crowded pretty quickly but if you time it right, you will be lucky to get... More

This restaurant gives me mixed feelings. I have been here before for dinner and it was great the food was delicious and hot. The service was good too, but when I came here for lunch it was terrible! We got a really crappy table where every time someone opened the door a big gust of cold air hit our table.... More

We totally enjoyed the Pho and beef spring rolls. They accommodated my husband's allergies. While the place is loud, we enjoyed eavesdropping on the conversation behind us and took the boisterous setting on a late Monday afternoon to be a sign of the quality of the food.

Be prepared to wait but it is well worth it. My son and I had pho and some spring rolls. We also had the most delicious French Macaroons I have ever had. Restaurant gets really crowded.

Not the nicest place but packed with people. Unique menu style. Food was fresh but packed with cilantro. My wife and i hate cilantro and seems like every dish has it. For the reason alone .....they're fired.

Was working in the area and stayed in the hotel near by. Wish we found this the 1st night. The food was unique, fresh, packed with flavor, natural, no junk, and a great value for your money. Been in the foodservice industry for over 35 years, and this was a treasure find. I ate here every night the rest of... More

I really enjoyed Rice & Noodles. We had the Phone and Ramen soup plus raw spring rolls and fried spring rolls. Everything was hot and fresh and great. Most interesting food in Lancaster. Lots of young hop clients. I recommend it!

If you are visiting the Lancaster or Lititz area, this is a great place to eat. I'm a Lancaster local and I eat here on a regular basis because the food is absolutely wonderful. I tend to call ahead and take out because their dining area is very small and seating can be tough during peak lunch/dinner hours, but the... More
