I seldom leave reviews, but after the waitress’ attitude I feel obligated to do so. Everything I had was borderline-inedible sweet. I ordered Tom Kha= warm molasses with onion in, ginger salad= lettuce soaked in ginger colored sugar syrup then salmon= fish bathed in warm molasses. After letting the waitress know that I found all items too sugary and leaving... More

We get food here 1 -2 times each month. Always good. Last Thursday night, our take out was throw out. Hot and sour soup ok, but not as good as usual. Same for the Generals Chicken. The Wonton soup was salty and tasted like dishwater. The Singapore Noodles and Lemongrass Chicken were bland. After a few bites, we threw both... More

This is located right in the Best Western Hotel, so it is convenient. It has a great bar area. The restaurant area is nice. The staff is friendly. The food is excellent and you get plenty.

Surprised at how good the food is and with large, very large portions. Do not think I finished an entire meal.

My husband and I and his co workers eat here often for lunch. I love the Green Curry Chicken and also the Pan yang Chicken Curry and he loves the Cashew chicken. The service is always friendly and attentive and the prices are very reasonable. It's not the "trendy place downtown" but a nice quiet place to go for an... More

.....and really hit the craving we had for some pho. Rainbow Asian came on the recommendation of a friend in Johnson City, and I now owe them one. Rainbow is connected to the Best Western Hotel on Roan St, so it's a little hard to find if you don't know that ahead of time. It's really nice inside, bordering on... More

I haven't eaten inside the restaurant before, I have visited the bar a couple years ago. But recently I was really wanting pho soup and it is difficult to find in this area. I searched and saw that it was available at this restaurant and decided to try it. I just ordered for pick-up. The soup is awesome, I've had... More
