I always enjoy meals here and bring my friends with me. The atmosphere is pleasant, the staff are friendly and attentive. Their meals are well-portioned and flavorful. They're also adept at accommodating special requests.

Despite the fact that 'Spice and Rice" is a little excentered from Harvard Square, I thought it was worthed to return there for diner. The price is not excessive, considering the good food, of good quantity so I had to bring some home, the quality, freshness and presentation. The restaurant is not very visible from the street, in the heart... More

Good quick pan asian food - not stellar, but good for the price. They do a good job with the sticky rice.

Here we are in Inman Square seeking lunch with le bébé, her stroller and because it is so late, someplace close. The hostess at Spice & Rice helps us heave the stroller up two steps and seats us near the fish tank. As amusement goes for a six-month old, ten seconds. The lunch menu splits sushi and Thai/Japanese appetizers (10),... More

I feel like I was abused by their frying grease!! The Veggie Maki Platter I ordered reaked of frying oil, and was pretty saturated in it (leaking all over the plate). Also, each piece of sushi was super sized to the point of being unable to eat it without cutting it in half. I'm not ever going back. Also, the... More

Seemed sketchy at first since the place was completely empty at 8 on a Saturday night. They had Chang beer though which was a hit; a great beer. Service was ok. food was great. I would definitely recommend this Thai gem in Cambridge.

- comfortable - good Thai, Korean, and Japanese (including sushi). A "pan-asian" place that doesn't suffer from the "...master of none..." syndrome. Excellent bul go gi, fresh sashimi, great curries. Definitely a favourite.
