We have never had an unpleasant dinner here at Rice. The drinks are reasonably priced and the food is consistently good. Have never waited more than a few minutes for a table. Wish they had a frequent diner program.

I love the unique way Rice takes on Thai food. Their purple rice is delicious, soups are yummy and staple dishes above average. I like the modern and simple decor, outside sitting and the delivery service!

In a city filled with cookie-cutter establishments, Rice stands out as an imaginative dining experience in a pleasant modern setting. The menu is organized by themes, and it can be fun to experiment with different ones, depending on your mood. The portions are not huge, but they are typically quite appropriate for the dish. The seafood, in our experience, is not typically your best choice. This is a great place to experiment with the vegetarian (including tofu) offerings. And the rice -- really! -- is truly a feast for both the palate and the eye.

Food was terrific, and the room is really nice (brick wall on one side, cool and quiet). The service was very good (yet was not obtrusive), and they had a number of very well-priced bottles of wine. One of the best restauants in the area.

Rice is located on the 14th District where there are many choices of restaurants, which i had experience. Rice was recommended by some locals for Asian fusion cuisine, but not sushi. The restaurant is narrow in design and layout; deem lighting and very modern decor with contemporary music in the background. I arrive alone and sat at the bar as the dining area was full. The bar is small and room for 4 people to sit comfortable. The ambiance was alive, definitely a place for socializing. I love curry and their red curry seafood was delicious! It was served with green-colored, flavorful rice. Seafood pieces were fresh and large in size; perfect proportion, and I left satisfied. I was greeted by an attractive hostess and escorted to the bar, however, once there, after a while, I had to asked for the menu and wine list to the male bartender. The menu is written in cursive, so with deem lights, you may rely on the illumination from your wireless device to read the menu...or maybe I just need glasses.
