“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is my fourth visit to The Rice Bowl and I love it. We went on the evening of the Chinese New Year celebrations and the place was bustling and very enjoyable. We had amazing dim sum, delicious duck with pancakes, vegetarian vegetables and beer! All delicious!

“Amazing!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We have been to this restaurant many times so thought it was about time I wrote a review!
This has got to be one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The food is amazing – great sized portions and the Saturday lunch menu is well worth the money! The staff are helpful and the food comes out of the kitchen really fast! I have never once had a complaint about this place and will always go here when we want a Chinese in Manchester!

“ALWAYS PAY A VISIT HERE WHEN IN TOWN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We paid a mid-week visit to the Rice Bowl and do honestly find it to be the best of it's kind. The service this time was a little disappointing but the food was as good as ever. We will certainly return.

“Some of the best Chinese food I've eaten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Really good food in a nice environment. Reasonably priced and attentive staff. My girlfriend is vegetarian and said the 'mock' duck pancakes were one of the nicest things she's ever eaten. Would definitely go again.
