Real authentic Chinese Food. They do offer standard Americanized Dishes, but their Noodle Soups are authentic. The Kitchen is open and very clean.

Got takeout. The chicken and broccoli order was huge. I ended up using it for 3 meals. It wasn't the absolute best chicken and broccoli I've ever had (I tend to like a more brown sauce), but it was fine and fresh. I had a...bite of a friend's order of Singapore noodles and those were pretty good too. No regrets.More

Their food quality and service has gone downhill over the past few months. I used to order from them regularly, but something changed. The food is gooey, the people who answer the phone do not understand the simplest of orders (i.e.: #34), and everything arrives...incorrectly. I used to order the same exact thing every week. They can no longer get it right. So, tonight, I tried ordering via an app. I thought it might be easier. WRONG! The food came with the wrong sauce. When I asked if they could send the correct sauce, they said more than 30 minutes. I advised the rest of the food would be cold and asked if they could redo the order? NO. Could they send the sauce quicker? NO. Could they refund me for the order? NO. Fortunately, Seamless is a reputable company and came to my rescue. I guess I'll be looking for a new place the next time I want to hang with the "General".More

Located on busy Washington Street, a cozy restaurant with reasonable prices, service is very attentive and the food is very good. They serve Chinese, Japanese and Thai. Sushi / Rolls are good, Pad Thai is yummy. BYOB.... liquor store a few blocks away, parking can...be tough.More

We try not to order Chinese food a lot, but when we do Rice Shop is our go to. I think i have tried every Chinese place in Hoboken over the years and this is the only consistently good place. Keep in mind, it is...still take out style Chinese food. This is not high end Chinese that you could find in NYC.More

My boyfriend and I had a Friday evening adventure in Hoboken and ended up trying this place being that it was Asian Fushions so we could get most of our favorites. Tom Yum Gai-yummy amazing flavor and chicken was tender not hard...perfectly cooked. Kind of...confusing: We had 2 Roti Kani's. Pretty basic parathas but what was odd was that we were served 2 plates of the paratha bread and then the waitress puts the bowl of curry in the middle of us and asked us to share. We were charged for 2 but it seemed like a portion of curry for one. Philly roll: very good, really fresh taste. Then we General Tso's Chicken is probably the most common take out dish but we were glad we got it. It was THE BEST Gen Tso's we've ever had. Chicken was perfectly cooked with the right timing. Chicken strips were juicy and tender, the batter was perfectly prepared with just the right amount of crisp, not that chunky shell with no chicken bite, and the sauce was the exact blend of tangy, spicy, sweet, and sour. Also the color of it was bright so we know the sauce was not sitting. We really enjoyed this and would come back just to eat this. And back to the Thai side we ordered Pad Se Ew:loved it, the chicken was prepared perfectly, right amount of seasoning to the noodles. It seemed like a clean environment, staff were friendly. I wanted to ask about the roti kani but I figured the chicken was a big hit.More

Ordered in for dinner from this place. Food arrived pretty much on time. We ordered 2 Broccoli and Chickens as well as a wonton soup. ( rice was included) I specifically asked for extra soy sauce as the basic 2 soy sauce per order is...never enough for the both of us. When the food arrived there was no extra soy sauce. Okay, whatever didn't bother me that much. I then started eating the Broccoli & Chicken. This is THE greasiest Chinese food I've ever had, EVER. There was literally a layer of oil covering the Broccoli as well as the Chicken. It didn't taste like other Broccoli & Chickens that I've ordered from other places, it had almost no flavor and whatever flavor there was was drowned with the oil. I couldn't eat it, it was disgusting. We both ended up throwing it away as it was SO greasy. At that point I was happy I ordered the Wonton Soup. I started eating it and guess what? Same Problem! It was so so so oily, the container in which the soup was in looked like there had been an Oil Spill. SO gross. The only thing we ended up sort of finishing was the rice but who can go wrong with rice, right? So if you're looking for some good Rice, sure order from here, but beware, you won't get any extra soy sauce. I don't recommend this place to anybody as we ( both ) couldn't eat our meals due to excess and I mean a LOT of excess oil floating around in our food. Go somewhere else, you won't regret it!More

Girlfriend ordered from here, and went to check out reviews shortly after. When I saw all the poor reviews, it was too late. Ordered beef and broccoli (recieved chicken and broccoli) and it was average at best, Orderen Chicken Pad Thai, and it was just...awful - dry, no flavor, ended up throwing 95% away. Better off going with T Thai.More

We used to like Rice Shop for it's Asian fusion menu and variety of various Asian dishes. We heard that it was under new ownership. Two recent delivery orders have proven to be bad. Most of the dishes from the old menu are gone. Look...elsewhere for Chinese food in Hoboken.More

I went there for a quick pick up and nobody was in the restaurant, which should have been my first tip. I picked up a noodle dish and it was incredibly bland.

Above average chinese -- particularly dumplings and rice dishes. Also love the chicken with hot peppers. Not great egg rolls but everything else is really good.

My sister ordered Frome this place some months ago and was physically attacked by the delivery guy. This was due to the fact that the guy wasn't happy about his 3 dollar tip. He cursed her, and when she asked for the tip back, because...she was insulted, he grabbed her and pushed her away. The cops were called with witnesses present, and the delivery guy was arrested but charges weren't continued by my sister. when the restaurant was notified they took it as a joke, completely siding with the employe, not even an apology. Anyway I thought the food sort of sucks anyway. Boycott this place!!!!More
