The yellow curry was excellently flavored and plentiful, as was the pad Thai. My wife especially appreciates the gluten free options. Service was attentive but not pushy.

Liked the food! We eat quite a lot of Indian food and we like it spicey, but if you do not want your meal to be spicey-hot, they will adjust the heat for you. Thai food is a little different from Indian, of course, and we found it delicious. Have eaten at other Thai restauants that are not half as... More

After living in Bellingham & returning for a visit I was excited to bring my Grandsons & Love of my Life, a retired chef here. BIG MISTAKE!! For the price of lunch, the portion was smaller than I recall; the flavors were flat; the chicken in one dish looked pulverized; the beef in panang curry was too tough to chew... More

Me and my 2 teenage sons ate her for my birthday. We arrived during happy hour - so before the dinner rush (we arrived around 5-ish on a Saturday night). Service was super fast and the waitress was helpful to my sons who didn't quite understand what they were ordering. Because of this, they both tried new foods and loved... More

We almost didn't try this place based on previous negative reviews but are very happy to say that our experience and the food were outstanding. Our waitress Thitima, was very helpful in recommending two dishes that more than met our expectations. We highly recommend this Thai restaurant!

I have not had a consistent meal experience at On Rice. I've eaten here many times over the years and it's gotten worse the past few years. One time the food will be flavorful and spicy and the next time it will be completely devoid of flavor and spice. The food is more "miss" than "hit". The spice star level... More

We never did get to eat there. They had one waitress and we ordered drinks and told her we knew what we wanted and she said she couldn't take our order because some people were in front of us. Ok that's fine but after 15 minutes she never came back.
