Excellent meal right in the hotel!

The food was really good at this restaurant. My husband and I shared an appetizer of Thai spring rolls that came accompanied by a small salad and they were delicious! He had a beef stir-fry dish with rice and I had a chicken stir-fry dish with rice. Both were huge servings and I had to take half... read more

This restaurant is located at the Best Western hotel and since we were tired after a long travel day we decided to eat here instead of finding another restaurant. Although the food was good the service was very slow and thus the average review of our experience at this restaurant.

This is an outstanding Asian restaurant. Don't let the fact that it is located at a motel fool you. The food is bountiful and flavorful. I consider myself somewhat of an expert when it comes to Asian food. I thought Yong in Gray was the best in this area, but they have now moved to #2 on my list. I... More

My wife, son & I stayed in the Best Western that Rainbow is connected to and we stopped in late in the evening, around 10pm. To be honest, we weren't expecting much but we had no idea what we were in for. The food was absolutely fantastic, the service was great and we couldn't stop talking about the experience. If...

EXCELLENT Asian Restaurant and a nice bar attached to the hotel. We took advantage of the restaurant on numerous occasions and we were never disappointed. It was REALLY GREAT food and always fresh and fast.

We had excellent service from Rachael. The food was excellent with extremely large portions. You can probably share a meal. You cannot beat the price! We had wine also that was decent. The bar has happy hour also.

Nice folks, large portions, attractive presentation BUT the food itself was just an awful stab at Thai cuisine with none of the traditional flavors that make Thai food exciting.

We were passing through town and saw this restaurant. The service was poor and slow. The food looked and smelled and was presented very attractively. However, it was the most bland, flavorless Thai food I have ever had. We eat Thai in Columbus and Dayton, Ohio regularly and this place paled in comparison. The server was incompetent and got drink... More
