I kinda want to keep this place to myself...

Good small Thai restaurant. I'm a big Pad Thai fan - and this Pad Thai was very good. New fav Thai restaurant while in Alexandria.

Cozy, local-style Thai restaurant. Family-run establishment caters to locals, who are frequent repeat customers. Serving portions are smaller than more chain-run restaurants it competes with, but flavors are strong and authentic. Recommend branching beyond Pad Thai and trying some of the specialties, like shrimp hot pot (not spicy) or ba mee noodles soup (very spicy). Service is top notch. Kids... More

Rice and Noodles is not in my neighborhood and I wish I could convince them to move. On the other hand, I am not far away, and I go there often to eat. It's a small, clean family place with friendly people, outstanding food, and extremely reasonable prices. As other reviewers note, the quality is consistently good. I highly recommend... More

The restaurant itself is small but the inside is clean and the service is prompt and friendly. We had dinner here with friends who used to live in Thailand-we were all happy with our food. The curry puffs and Tom Kha Gai were delish, as well as our yellow curries with sticky rice. Taro and coco for dessert was the... More

For the appetizer, I always order my favorite 'fried prawns wrapped with rice noodle'. The quality is consistent and never disappointed me. The dipping sauce is divine. Since I am very confident about the consistent quality of the foods, I usually try new dish every time I go there. The only complaint is the small potion of the main dishes.... More

We were hoping for a great experience, but this is just average Thai fare. We ordered the pad thai and the drunken noodles. Portions were good, the heat level just right, and the delivery was free. Nothing to write home about, sadly. Still looking for good thai in the area. Tuk tuk in LIC is still the benchmark.

#52 is my go to meal; flat rice noodles with chicken and eggs and spring onions. It's not spicy but if you like it spicy ask for medium spicy.

Delicious Thai option in the Franconia/Kingstowne area! Just moved to the area and, as lovers of Thai food, were eager to check out this spot based on the reviews. We were not disappointed in the least! We sampled everything that appears to be beloved on here: Chicken Panang Curry, Drunken Noodles and the Spring rolls. Panang was fantastic, as was... More

A friend invited me Rice and Noodles for lunch. I was a little shocked when I pulled into the very small parking lot and saw a very tiny Thai restaurant hooked on a Peruvian Restaurant next door. My first reaction was to run. However, I met my friend inside, had lunch, and it was surprisingly pretty good, as well as... More

This is a tiny Thai restaurant located right off Franconia rd near Kingstowne. I've been to this place quite a bit over the past few years. I would definitely recommend it. The prices are good, the spring rolls are excellent. Great lunch specials.
