BYO Thai

Very warm and caring service, imaginative menu plus the old standbys, a local favorite. Pick up a bottle of something at the neighborhood market a few doors away. Perfect location, excellent value.

The food at Jasmine Rice is delicious and they will adjust the spice to your taste. This is a BYOB, which makes the value so much greater. The people who own the restaurant are very warm and welcoming and know the importance of taking care of each dining party as their guests. There is nothing fancy or exotic about the... More

We dine in Center City often -- Sbraga, Tinto, Vetri, Volver, a.kitchen, Monk's, even Warsaw Cafe back in the day, as examples -- but somehow we've missed Jasmine Rice. Until now. And we were missing a very nice Thai restaurant. Great value. We stopped for dinner on Saturday and had a great experience. The family of owners serve you, so... More

It's very good Thai place right in the city center. The owner is very friendly and courteous, and food is great. It's also byob. I live across the road and often come here for lunch

This is a BYOB. Close tables made it lively and fun. I really enjoyed the spring rolls as an appetizer and pad thai as entree-ingredients seemed very fresh and it was like a home cooked meal.

This dumpling still amazes me, yes it takes a little longer but worth it. This is a family restaurant and you are treated as family. Food is perfectly fresh, curries can be mild to fire, unsure of what you like, ask and the suggestions will not steer you wrong. We are often in the area on Sunday night and even... More

Stopped in for lunch. We arrived just before they opened for the day and after sitting for ten minutes we wondered if anyone else was coming in. Ten minutes later, the place was packed. Good selection of quality Thai food.

The food was very good, unfortunately the owners do not know anything about serving everyone at the table at the same time.

I was in Philly with my wife and some friends for the weekend. On Saturday, we went walking around the Rittenhouse Square section of town. Someone wanted Asian, so we went to Yelp (sorry Trip Advisor) to look up some places. Glad we picked Jasmine Rice. The restaurant is located a 1/4 of the way on a street of residential... More

We came in on a Thursday evening at around 6:45 and the place was pretty empty. The waiter, who I think was also the owner, graciously welcomed us. By 7:15 the place was packed, so I'd make a reservation just to be safe! The waiter/owner was incredibly accommodating! We were new to authentic Thai food, and he allowed us all... More
