“Great food, great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Small restaurant on the main drag through Oxford. But, a great restaurant. Tremendous value for money, great service and fantastic food. Another must visit.

“Rice & Spice still the best Asian in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Rice & Spice Thai Restaurant continues to offer fresh, tasty Asian dishes. Last visit we had Tum Yum soup [one with chicken, the other with shrimp]. Followed this with vegetarian spring rolls, pad kra prow [pork sauteed with garlic, onion, bell peppers, chili, broccoli, carrot and black beans], and pad king [chicken sauteed with fresh ginger, green onions, bell pepper, celery]. Service is alway very good, portions ample, prices great. The restaurant is sleek, clean and attractive.

“Pad Thai Rocks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

My family and I eat at Rice and Spice at least twice a month. The food is delicious. Everything that we've tried has been great but our favorites are Pad Thai, Cashew Chicken, Yellow Curry and Panang Curry. You pick the number of spice and we never go over a 2..and for the Panang a 1..pretty spicy, but delicious. They also have yummy desserts. Be sure to try the fried ice cream and the fried banana with ice cream. The place is always busy, but food comes out in a very timely manner. If you love Thai food..try Rice and Spice ..you will not be disappointed!!

“Authentic, fresh, flavorful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

My wife and I try to eat here at least once a week, as we find this our favorite restaurant in Oxford. The food is always freshly prepared with imaginative use of herbs and spices. In addition to being delicious, the food is healthful (just in case that matters to you). Our favorite dish is Pad Kra Prow, and the main ingredient can be tofu, beef, chicken, or shrimp. The Thai basil is the featured flavor, but this is a dish that is always spicy from Vietnamese hot peppers (cayenne, I think). You can request the level of spiciness (0-5). We always have tears of joy from eating this dish. Oh, and though it takes a little while to create these dishes, it is worth the wait. This is not fast food, and the service is always nice.

“Good Thai Restanrant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

My favorite dish at Rice and Spicy is drunken master. I love the spicy flavor. The Thai curry was good too. They have different choice on the spicy level, from grade one to five. I usually get 3 and it really really good!!! Authentic Thai food restaurant with just the right price. I would recommend friends to go there and try out.
