Ricky's has a simple decor and menu, but everything is delicious and the service is excellent. Their sushi is fresh and the miso soup delicious!

We visit Rick's on a regular basis. You don't have to guess whether or not it is going to be good, is always is. Their sushi is always fresh and good. The Thai and Japanese dishes are well made and a pleasure. The location could be better, but it is always clean. Yes, the parking is terrible, but where isn't... More

A nice, small restaurant. A menu like none other here, everything freshly prepared and yummy. Spiced as hot as you want.

We always have either the tempura shrimp or the soup with tempura shrimp. Always perfect. Pity they're no longer open at the weekends.

Extensive menu selections in every category, the food here is stellar! Consistently fresh, attractively presented dishes always served to the table steaming hot; generous portions for value. Shrimp Tempura, five large size shrimp, hot, light and crispy, soups are delicious with authentic, aromatic seasonings, Salmon Teriyaki, an enormous portion - everything always available on the menu and even have Sake....

I went in with a couple friends, I am not a good person to judge Thai food, as I normally do not eat it, but went in and ordered a soup that was supposed to be NOT spicy hot, but it was so I did not like it. The friends that I was with said it was good. The Ice... More

The food is truly the star here. The place is small, clean, sparse, and cheaply furnished, but the food is as good as any I have had in the US in fancy schmanzy expensive places. I live in the area and go there often because it is one of the best options for eating out. I see lots of people... More

What a find! A real hole in the wall with not a ton of "ambiance" but great Thai/Japanese food. Who knew? Plenty of vegetarian dishes but the chicken is the most tender I have ever had, anywhere. Wonderfully spicy. Perfect Thai iced tea and coffee. Great staff!
