Rice n Three opened about 20 years ago in Bolton - and I've never been disappointed by the food or the service. Their current premises (just round the corner from where they originally set up) is on the main street in Bolton, lovely glass front so you can people watch while you eat, lots of tables downstairs but also not...

Very friendly, quick service as everything is ready on the counter. It's self service to a point but there is always help at hand.

Me and my husband have been going to this restaurant for the past 15 years. There is no other place like it. It serves authentic food without the extra oil and faff, that make other India restaurants sickly and not like how yo mamma cooks! The staff are very friendly and the restaurant is basic (adding to it's charm) and... More

As the name suggests the standard Rice n 3 set up, which seems to be getting more popular. We went on a Saturday lunch time and they were rammed with customers. Most people seemed to be getting take aways but plenty of people sat in. Food was good and plentiful but the only thing we did not like is that... More

Really friendly atmosphere, curries made fresh on the day and really friendly staff, not the poshest of places but clean, tidy and comfortable. Great value, rice and three + a drink cost £5.50, can't beat it, multicultural atmosphere and good quality food at good prices.

Great homemade curries in a friendly cafe. A completely different and wonderful experience. Nothing like the stuff you get in a normal Indian restaurant, no rogan josh, jalfreizi, dansak etc which are too rich and taste oily. Choose three of six different curries each day and have the lovely rice. Ask for salad on top with 3 sauces. This will... More
