    The atmosphere was very modern, trendy, with great attention to detail. Our wait staff was wonderful and very professional. The only reason why I would not rate this restaurant higher is due to the food quality. While presentation was impeccable, the specialty rolls tasted fishy and bland, the miso soup was average, and the sushi was nothing to drool over. You know that feeling you get when you just crave a good sushi meal? This was average at best.

    When we got to the resturant we were seated right away and the hostess was very polite. When the waitress came out to take our drink orders she offered suggestions on good drinks from the bar. She was not overly friendly and did not smile when she came to the table but was polite. We ordered an appetizer (ahi tuna) that was amazing. The fish tasted fresh and the flavors were spot on. We ordered a few rolls of sushi that were also great. The only major issue that I had were the drinks. I ordered the house speciality and the vodka in the drink had a very gross after taste. Almost to the point where the drink tasted like cough syrup.

    We went to Rice & Company while visiting Las Vegas for a bachelorette party. There were 6 of us at our table and we all ordered a couple rolls (tried to get some variety). Our only complaint about the evening was the amount of time it took to get our food. Everything was delicious when we received it, our waiter was excellent in making recommendations and making sure we had what we needed. But our reservation was at 5pm and we had a 7pm show to attend (literally next door at least), but we seemed really rushed once our food arrived to be able to make it to our show on time. The atmosphere was beautiful and quiet, and service was excellent, the food was amazing! Just needed more time.

    I've stayed at the Luxor a dozen times, (and will again) I'm pleased to have the new Rice & Company as an option during my stay. I suggest sharing a deluxe platter between two, add a couple of your favorites. The UNI was very fresh... a great addition. My disappointment was where we sat. The open area with a view of the tacky gift shop, it felt like I was sitting at a Denny's. The comfort of the chair so bad we tried a couple from another table, not alone the group of ten near us did the same thing. These chairs have to go. Try to get a table near the Sushi bar you will have an enjoyable evening.

    After arriving my boyfriend and i were on a very tight schedule. The waiter assured us we would be out in plenty of time. In fact we ended up having 45 minutes of wiggle room. They have a great selection of sake and wines if you drink alcohol. I personally went for their bottled green pomegranate tea. It was sweet enough from the fruit flavor. I also ate the general tsos chicken. It was different than traditional and had more of a BBQ feel to it but I really liked it. I would love to return.

    This was my second visit to Rice & Company. I only went for the sushi, but I have tried other dishes in the past, like their excellent Crispy Whole Fish. This time, however, I ordered a rather challenging roll - the Fire Breathing Dragon Roll. Inside this roll there is shrimp tempura, tobiko, spicy mayonnaise, and fresh chopped Habanero peppers. As if this combination wasn't eye-watering enough, it's served with a Ghost Chili dipping sauce. Ghost Chilis are 400 times hotter than a Jalapeño! While it definitely blows the top right off of your head, the roll still packs a lot of flavorl. So if you're a chili head that loves good food, I definitely recommend it. Oh, and I won a set of chopsticks for finishing the roll!

    I was here during CES, the only reason we came here was because it look nice from the outside, but that was about the only good feature. The food is outrageously overpriced, it took forever to get served and to top it off the food was cold. The service was just as bad, having one waiter for five tables is just not right. Save your money go elsewhere.

    My initial impression was somewhat negative as I had to wait 25 minutes past my reservation time to be seated. I waited for 3 people without reservations to be seated first with the restaurant was 90 % empty. After I pushed to be seated the manager seated us. We also waited 8 minutes for our first contact with the waitress after being seated. Yes I timed it because I was miffed. Food was excellent and the servings were quite generous. Service was average meaning you had to ask for drink refills and to have the pile of empty plates removed. Orders received were not correct either. Overall I would say I hope it was an off day. If not for my first impressions I would have had a very nice experience.

    We ate at the Rice & Company because of it's location. We had show tickets at Luxor to see Chris Angel and it was close by. Food was good, service slow and average ambience. The restaurant décor looked old and need of a face-lift, but it served it's purpose that we could eat and get to the show.

    Recently stopped by Rice for dinner with my mom while we were in Vegas, and had a great experience. Fast, polite, friendly service, and lots of great food! The cocktails looked super good, but I went with a beer instead--other folks around us seemed to really enjoy theirs, though. Definitely will visit again when I go back!

    I had to stay around Mandalay Bay for new hours so my options for a great sushi place were limited. I browsed some reviews before booking and I was expecting great food but terrible service. Surprise!! I guess those guys considered the reviews since we had great food with an excellent service. We sat at the sushi bar and took the change to chat with the sushi man. We ordered a half duck and a selection of 4 speciality rolls. It was really good. We even got a octopus lemon salad on the house to digest. I'm not a big fan of restaurants that are open on the casino since it gives the impression of having dinner at a food court but for that place, if you sit near the sushi bar, you'll not see the hotel at all and will have a good experience.

    Me and 3 other guests had dinner on a Saturday night. We were greeted warmly and seated right away. Our server had excellent recommendations for sushi, which we ordered, along with some appetizers, and even some Chinese food menu items. When the sushi arrived we realized that we got 2 of the same roll and was missing one roll. The server grabbed the dish and took it back to have it removed and replaced with the correct one. One of my friends had order some noodles, reminded the server and it still never arrived. We canceled that order. The food that we did get was great!

    The restaurant atmosphere was nice. The service was good. The miso soup was good. The orange peel chicken had an attractive presentation, but it was marked as spicy and wasn't spicy at all...not even the faintest hint of anything spicy in the actual dish as if the chef had completely forgotten to add any seasoning. It did have a faint orange flavor from the orange peel that was nice, but that was the only detectable flavor or seasoning. My guest had one of the sushi dishes that was also supposed to be spicy, but for which the spiciness was also undetectable. I thought that the atmosphere and decor were nice. The service was also good. I would probably be willing to try the restaurant one more time hoping for something more flavorful.

    We went here after seeing it on Heat Seekers on the Food network as I love eating very hot food. Ordered the Flaming Dragon roll which is not on the menu and it was okay. It definitely was not as hot as it is hyped to be. The rest of the food was fairly good and we took the opportunity to get something far from the norm since it is Vegas and they have so much available. The downside was our service was REALLY lacking. Anytime we wanted anything we had to flag down people to find our server which was strange since it was not that busy at all. It's a decent meal in Vegas, but I wouldn't go back honestly due to the service.

    The food itself was tasty, and the menu very appealing. Having said that, the food was not really outstanding and the ambiance of the restaurant was extremely loud - the music from next door permeated with a deep bass undertone that never let up. It took forever to order and forever to get the food. There was a stressed out waitstaff having too many tables to serve at one time.

    We were promptly greeted and seated. The service was excellent. That was the best part of this dining experience. I had a deluxe sushi platter which is a Chef's choice at $40. My dinner date had Sweet'n'Sour pork. All of the Sushi was made Nagiri style with the normal types of fish you see on any menu, one peace of octopus, and a dragon roll (eel). All of the sushi tasted as it should, but wasn't exceptional. The dragon roll seemed to have been made by someone with experience, but not by an expert considering it feel apart when you would pick up a piece. The Sweet'n'Sour pork was delicious and as high of a quality in cooking and taste as any good Chinese restaurant. However, the meat was fatty and some had gristle.

    As expected on the strip the food is expensive for the portions, although the quality is good. We enjoyed the fuuking gud roll. We were able to get a Mlife reward through MyVegas with a $50 dining credit if you spend $100. That special worked out well for us as we were able to get drinks, 3 entrees and dessert. I would recommend the deep fried bananas with nutella for dessert. It comes with coconut ice cream with interesting crisp nuggets on top. Overall the service is pretty good.
