I've heard several people talking about it so we had to try. Sorry I did.
When we arrived, hostess asked how many and I told her 3. Of all the open seating, she took us to a bar booth that was tiny. Maybe for 2, but not 3. Very narrow table and not so comfy seats. I ordered a bottle of Chardonnay and it was warm. So now I'm not too impressed. We ordered two appetizers (fresh spring roll and dumplings). Our waiter wouldn't allow us any time to enjoy the wine or hav conversation. Every 2-3 minutes would come ask for our order. I had to keep asking him to give us some time so we could talk...didn't happen. We were tired of pressure to order, so we ordered. As you probably can see, our food came right after the appetizers arrived. No room on table for all!
Food was ok at best. The appetizers awful. Fresh spring rolls sticky, warm, no flavor and dumplings were soggy and doughy. More dough than stuffing.
We were rushed when check came and he kept trying to take my signed receipt before we finished our last bit if wine. I wouldn't let him...
I might try again to see if this was a one-off bad visit, but it won't be anytime soon since there are so many better places in area. Sorry!

I thought the food was good and reasonably priced. I had sushi, and while it was good, the portions of the cuts were too small. But, this is primarily a Thai restaurant and the rest of our meal was very good. Our server was excellent.

Hands down the best Thai restaurant I have ever dined at and I have lived in major cities around the world. It's worth the little extra money than other places in the Chatt area.

I have been to Rain several times and every time it is just as good as the last. I love the atmosphere, especially the rain room. It is very relaxing and the food is a good value for the money. My favorite item on the menu is their spring rolls. I can make a meal of just them. However, I have tried several items on the menu and I have yet to find anything bad. Remember, this is Thai food and their spice level is not a normal spice. I would not go over medium spice unless you are for sure you can handle it...its easier to go mild or medium and ask for the spice rack to be brought to your table!!

I love sushi, and let me tell you, Rain has the best sushi around. And for lunch you can get 3 sushi rols for just $10.00.
