Best Thai food!

I have been enjoying this place since they opened. I have never ordered from the Chinese side of the menu but the Thai food is outstanding. I have never had bad service and food has always been top notch. The fresh spring rolls are addictive and Pho noodle soup is down right amazing. I have had... read more

I ate here with friends. The food was awful but at least the drinks were good. I don't think I'll be back.

Had a good Asian meal which included a ginger salad. Food was well prepared, good spice, served hot and large portions. Would definitely eat here again if in the area.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Johnson City. We are vegetarians and they have many choices with tofu (especially the Sesame Tofu). They are very accommodating. One of my favorites is their spring rolls with peanut sauce, it comes with meat but they make mine with tofu instead. Their Tom Kah soup is great and I do like... More

This is attached to the Best Western. The entrees were big enough for two. We tried the Orange Chicken, Sesame Chicken, lettuce wraps, crab rangoon, and fried plantains. Only the plantains let us down. Everything else was hot and tasty

We always try and visit our friends at Rainbow every month or so. The setting is wonderful for a nice date night meal. It even has a bar and hotel attached if the moment is right or you have had a few too many drinks. The food is the best Chinese I've ever had with a huge menu offering something... More

The food is fantastic but the service is HORRIBLE. The owner of this restaurant is very rude and I honestly have no idea how they are still open. (I guess because the food is good...) You are much better off ordering to-go
