“A good find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Had dinner with a friend at Rice on a Thursday evening, and was very pleased. Rice is slightly off the beaten track (the road dead-ends just another block down), but that means that parking is easy, and it's quiet. The restaurant is inside a small arcade-style mall, and is fairly small. Others have described the decor as "austere," but we found it sleek and modern - if you're looking for the Disney version of a Chinese restaurant, this isn't it.

We had Dim Sum to start - Fried Pork and Watercress Shrimp, both excellent, fresh, and piping hot. Then an order of Sesame Chicken and an order of Szechuan Dice Kung Bo Chicken and Peanut. Again, both well-prepared, with fresh ingredients. My only complaint is that the Szechuan dish, while described as "spicy," didn't have nearly enough fire in it. If you like things spicy, you can safely ask for your dish to be hotter, a lesson I've stashed away in memory for the next visit.

Good service, very friendly people. Prices are a tad high, but not out of line for the area.

“remarkably excellent unusual chinese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

don't try this restaurant because I love its peaceful atmosphere where the chef owner has time to talk to you and suggest the days specials..It is Chinese food that is genuine and unusual. A must for those wanting gourmet chinese foodl

“Not Impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Must be me, was not at all impressed. Whole experience underwhelming. For example, ordered pork fried rice and got fried rice with a piece of pork on top.

“Rice!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We have brought home take out from Rice a few times and have been delighted with the fresh ingredients and interesting choices that Rice offers. Highly recommend that folks try Rice if they want some more unusual dishes.

“Best Chinese in westchester by far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

My wife and I recently moved to Purchase from Manhattan and made a plan to find some comparable restaurants in the immediate area . Little did we know we would find a gem like Rice Modern almost on our doorstep( it's 10 minutes drive from our house but we would travel 30 minutes as it,s so worth it) . Simply put , the food is excellent ! This family run restaurant creates a comfortable setting and excellent attention to detail, their modern play on traditional Cantonese food results in exquisite tastes and presentation. They use the freshest ingredients resulting in delicious cuisine. This is not the typical 'American Chinese' food, it is SO much better! The menu is a perfect size , each choice as excellent as the next. We have lived in the area for 6 months now and have been here countless times, we recommend it to all our friends and neighbors.
