First night in Cross Lanes, just outside Charleston. They hotel recommended this place which jibed with what I have read here and elsewhere. The place is hard to see when it is dark as a coal mine outside! It is just past a gas station. The vegetables were fresh, the meat was well cooked, seasoned and tender. The server was... More

Very authentic food. The place don't look like much outside, but once we went inside we knew we were at the right place. I'm sure it is family owned and the service was outstanding. The only thing that was better than the service was the food. Wow! some of the best I've had.

Set back off the road, with absolutely no curb appeal, this restaurant has better Chinese food than we can find in our area that has 5 times the population and dozens of Asian food places. The service was efficient and friendly, the portions excellent and the food was as good as we've found anywhere, and at great prices. It will... More

We have just moved to the area and was told The Rice Bowl has good food. So I decided to give it a try. We ordered a variety of food. Here is what we ordered and what we thought of each item. Wonton soup was pretty good. Beef Kebab children's meal, came two beef sticks with a chunk of pineapple... More

Ordered two takeaways on two seperate occasions and was gobsmacked with both the quality and the quantity delivered. Food was hot,tasty and ridiculously cheap to buy. Gave me enough food to feed an army. Wish these people would open up a branch in Cardiff, South Wales.

My family, friends, and I eat here all the time. The food is top notch!! Being Asian, we order from the authentic menu located at the back of the menu itself. Now, authentic Chinese food is for the more adventurous eater (i.e. whole fried fish with the head attached, shrimps with heads, sautéed crabs, snails with black beans, watercress with... More

We stopped here to eat in a whim. My husband had eaten here ten years ago and remembered it was good. Good is a lame word for this place. It's amazing! I had the Shrimp with Garlic Sauce Combo platter with wonton soup and egg roll. Lots of shrimp in the meal and litely spicy. The egg roll was hot... More

The Staff is very polite and accommodating. I love Chinese food, but prefer it to be prepared in a low-fat, low-sodium, low-sugar manner. This restaurant is always willing to prepare it in the way that I request it. The prices are very reasonable.

This place was recommended to us, and it was good, but nothing extraordinary. One of the servers was a little rude, but the other was very nice and talkative. The place needs to be updated, so that it appears cleaner. It seemed clean, but it old, so you don't know for sure. I would eat there again, especially given the... More

It's near Interstate 64 and the Mardi Gras Casino and dog track; we ate on Sunday afternoon, and enjoyed the large noodle soup, Poo-Poo platters, and a chicken entrees. Everything was great, and the portions were large enough that we had to take some home with us.
