The food is outstanding, the service is fabulous, and the place is clean. Rice & Spice is our go-to restaurant in Oxford and it's excellent every time. Just writing this review makes me want to go now!

This is the first time we have been to Rice & Spice for lunch, having been there for dinner many times. We ordered Tam Yum Soup, Panang Curry, and Pad Kra Prow. The soup could not be ordered with shrimp, which is our preference. It was served with a bit of chicken in a small cup - half the size... More

My favorite place to eat in Oxford. Great curry, noodle and rice dishes. Service isn't the best, but the food makes up for it. It's very popular among students, so it can get crowded on the weekends.

My wife ordered the panang, and when it arrived it had long blond hairs mixed in. The waitress say this and offered to have the dishes made again. We lost our appetite and tried to leave, but she stopped us and handed us a bill for the plate of stuff no one would ever eat. There was no manager on... More

Fabulous lunch specials! The Pad Thai with chicken (no tofu for me) is incredible. The spring rolls are good too. We love Rice and Spice!

I work in NYC in an area known as Little Bangkok and so surrounded by delicious Thai restaurants. My daughter attends Ole Miss, and so I visit as often as possible. I make sure that I visit Rice & Spice at least once per visit. Everything on the menu is good but my two favorites are Panang Curry Chicken and... More

I love Rice & Spice, my favorite dish is the R&S noodle. I have been trying to find a similar dish everywhere in Nashville but can't seem to. Great food!

Rice & Spice Thai Restaurant has become very popular and, since they do not take reservation, getting seated promptly may be a problem. The wait is worth it, however, since the food and service are excellent. The two of us had Tom Yum Soup with shrimp, Won Ton Soup, Pad Kra Prow with pork [R5 on menu], and Thai Fried... More

Small portions, but not small prices. Service is chaotic and slow. My soup arrived cold, and the **bowl** contained @ 3TBSP of soup. There are better options in a town with many good restaurants.
