Quite the selection of sakes which tempted me and I didn't resist. Extensive menu, but I stayed with the tried and true: spring rolls and pad thai. Very enjoyable. Large portion, couldn't finish it all. Was offered take-out, but not practical on my way to Canada.

Their Pad Thai is **delicious,** and the potions are huge! You get rice as well as a salad (in the evening) or soup (at lunch, when the prices are also less). I can share one order and still have another small meal left over. The decor is welcoming and the servers are super nice and attentive. Try the mint green... More

On Rice is the best Thai food Bellingham has to offer! Their location near Barkley Village is newer, and more upscale looking, but the food is just as good and service just as fast and friendly at the Samish Way location - which once you are inside belies the outside appearance (in other words, it looks nicer inside). You can... More

We had great service and excellent food. The warm peanut dressing on the salad greens was lovely. We both had pork dishes. The Pad Thai was very tasty even though it lacked the strong lemon flavor I associate with that dish. The Garlic dish on broccoli was savory. The wine and food were very reasonably priced. We would recommend this... More

I was invited for dinner by some relatives at On Rice. They said that this is one of their favorite Asian restaurants, specially their curry dishes. I thought that The On Rice starters we ordered (spring rolls, roti with curry dip, calamari, and phad thai noodles) were somewhat ordinary. But after sampling the red curry with duck, yellow curry with... More

I used to frequent On Rice when I was going to school up in Bellingham. Best Phad Thai, delicious swimming rama. Perfect amount of spice and flavor. The staff is great too. Side note: this one always used to be a buck cheaper than fairhaven. Enjoy!

Service was prompt. The salad with peanut sauce was fresh-tasting and the dressing delicious. My drunken noodles were to the table within minutes of ordering them, and arrived piping hot. I can get enthusiastic about a good plate of drunken noodles. These hardly stirred my soul and didn't really tickle my palate either. They were extra salty and not particularly... More

This is the only place I will go for Thai food. The service is excellent & the food is wonderful & the servings large enough to have lunch the next day if you want to.

The food at this place is amazing! With every meal you receive a salad with a peanut dressing that they make in house. For lunch, I believe, you receive soup prior to your meal. My absolute favorite appetizers are fresh rolls and basil wraps. My personal favorite meal is Basil Fried Rice with Chicken. It is amazing here and only... More

This is my go-to for take out and I usually get one of their noodle dishes. Their food is pretty good although not the best Thai food I've ever had. I recommend their drunken noodle or the swimming Rama if you're trying something new. You can never go wrong with Phad Thai if you're wanting something basic and easy. Usually,... More
