“A real asset to Bedford”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

I had supper at Rice last night and it truly was exceptional. The best Thai food I have had. The menu is perfectly balanced, enough choice but not overwhelming, the presentation is exceptional and each dish was cooked to perfection. The ambience is great, informal and cosy and it was very obvious that the staff all get on very well and the atmosphere was cheeful and relaxed.

Such a great asset to Bedford, definitely a little gem!

“good value ,nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Went as a couple and a friend last saturday night as having recently opened and getting good reviews.It is a small but friendly atmosphere and we dined with other varied people. Such as a young couple with child , a group of 5 young ladies and a table of six friends and 2 young couples who appeared to be having a romantic time, It was full, as a would say that they only have room for about 24 people at one sitting with no place to wait if you are early and wanted drinks while you wait for table.Having said that the food was excellent,the staff helpful and friendly.The food was wonderful and well prepared,with generous helpings.Our bill with drinks for 3 people was about £73-00 but well worth every penny.Would we go back, you betcha.We had, a wonderful experience,i think you would too.

“Fantastic”

This place was so good we went two weeks in a row! The set menu is very good value and ticks the box for a Thai fix. the spicy squid was very good. Book early as it is very popular!

“Outstanding food & service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Second visit to Thai Rice and will definitely be returning again soon. The menu is varied, food is fantastic and the service is wonderful too. Great atmosphere for a small restaurant and it always seems to be busy so booking is recommended. They're happy to heat up or cool down dishes based on your chilli-preference which is always appreciated by me as can't handle too much spice. The food is authentic Thai and truly delicious. A fantastic addition to Bedford!

“Amazing!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

This was my second visit to Rice. The food was amazing, hot, full of flavour, presented well and was like nothing ive ever tasted before! Everything is freshly prepared and made with love. The manager is so friendly and the chef (who came out to ask if we were enjoying our meal). Cant recommend this place enough!!!!
