While the food isn't spectacular, the ingredients are fresh and there are certain dishes that are definitely better than others. I enjoy their noodle dishes, particularly the pad thai, and it's a unique and convenient dinner choice if you're near campus. It's a fun, casual...More

While there are certainly some mediocre Thai restaurants around, there are very few that are genuinely bad. Sadly, the Rising Sons Deli is one of them. We ordered two appetizers and three entrees to share. The appetizers were okay, but the entrees were quite disappointing....More

A very authentic Asian/Thai restaurant located in the hearty of the UW-Madison campus - on legendary State Street. Nice local, low key interior supplements the very well-prepared and well-presented food. Everything we ordered was delicious down to the last morsel.
