The food and drinks are actually decent but the service is lacking. There wasn’t enough waiters and way too many runners. No one took ownership to assist us after many approaches. There were only 2 tables that had people and the waiter talked too much.

Amazing food and incredible service! Super impressed!

Gracious service but excruciatingly slow. Asian fusiony dishes, some successful, in most cases, real missteps. Dishes should come out one at a time, but instead came out very randomly or all at once. Not a busy night, so no excuses. Probably best for large late night post drinking or pre clubbing groups who are hungry and can be forgiving about quality, and kids who like pan Asian and want a fun and cheerful spot (like mine).

Was empty when we arrived so knew something was up. Had great pre-din drinks at the rooftop bar-not associated with the restaurant which was unfortunate.

Ordered drinks which were ok. Then ordered apps and dinner. The waitress was a little snippy. Got our apps- dumplings which were very good and a crispy papaya salad which was meh.

Then we waited and waited for our dinner. After 1 hour (1 hour!!!!), we asked for the check and left. Was not gonna wait in an empty joint any longer.

Snippy tells us some BS about ventilation crap in the kitchen. Must have been the owner venting about the empty restaurant. All of this in a bustling Chinatown.

Go figure.

Fantastic food and friendly service -- Dale Talde does it again, and this time in Manhattan. Big room with lots of room for groups and cool decor. Be sure to go!

Service and atmosphere was good and food was unexpectedly good. I made a reservation for Sunday Brunch for three people. The restaurant is very spacious and was not overly crowded.
Their brunch menu offers something aside from eggs which is why I chose this restaurant for early mothers day treat. We ordered Crispy Thai Chicken Sandwich, Spicy Duck Laksa, and a simple Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Fried Rice. The Crispy Thai Chicken Sandwich with papaya slaw, holy basil, sriracha mayo, and Bacon, Egg, & Cheese fried rice with garlic, onion, scallion was our favorite. The pickled papaya salad in the chicken sandwich was a nice twist to the regular lettuce, onion, and tomato and the cheese in friend rice was not overwhelming. The laksa was good but not great. Will return to try other food on the menu.

unique, complex, tasty preparations.
Had their soup dumplings, gnocchi, and chicken laksa... would get them all again

We had a 7:30 reservation, restaurant was not that busy at the time. Our service was impeccable. The food was excellent! I would definitely return!

It seems like a fancy place, for special occasions, but that’s only sorta true.

The food is ok but expensive.

I rarely leave reviews here on OpenTable but this place exceeded my expectations on a number of criteria. It may look like a 'fast-casual' Asian eatery the quality of the food, the ambiance, and the hospitality are quite a bit better than I had thought. While the front part of the restaurant and bar is quite loud with crashing music and everyone struggling to be heard over that, the rear part has quite booths that make for perfect dinner and conversation.

The waiters did not give us any attention, and the noise level was very high.

The service and food were absolutely incredible. We had such an amazing time! Definitely going to become our regular spot! The bar manager, Haera, looked after us above and beyond! Thank you for everything!! Xo

We’ve been here several times now for brunch and dinner, and every dish we had was delicious. Restaurant is also easy for families as the space is wide

I am out of words describing Rice&Gold restaurant. The food was to die for.. just amazing.

5.0Dined on April 5, 2018

Absolutely no complaints. Service was amazing, food was delicious, vibe was fun and exciting. Will definitely be back and suggest to others.

Food was awesome! We were a bit disappointed to find out that the executive chef revamped the entire brunch menu into Mexican food (with no ability to order from the regular brunch menu) since it was April Fools Day. It was a great prank but not what we were expecting since we had out of town guests dining with us. However, the Mexican food did not disappoint and the day was saved. The drinks from the bar are top notch as well. I will definitely come back to try the regular menu.

Everything we ordered was made well and totally delicious. The service was great and everyone made us feel welcome.

Super slow service. Average food. Staff friendly but just too slow.

1.0Dined on March 24, 2018

Food was only ok, and they served us undercooked chicken. The staff was very nice and made an effort to remedy the situation, but we won’t be back...

4.0Dined on March 21, 2018

Soup dumplings - awesome. Upsize the order to make them evenly shareable
Gnocchi - not our favorite
Sticky Pork ribs - amazing
Potatoes with garlic and yogurt - terrific

We were the only people in the bar - literally two people, during a major snowstorm, from 5-7pm. Service at the bar (where we sat) was slow. Huh!?!!??

But good is awesome. I’d go back!!

The ambiance and decor was nice. Went here for a date and tried the pho soup dumplings, pork ribs, and chicken laksa. All very delicious. However, the laksa included anchovies which we removed from the dish. While the staff was very attentive, it took a while for our food to come even though the restaurant wasn't super busy at that time. Additionally, the price to quantity was a little upsetting.

5.0Dined on March 20, 2018

Awesome food. Very interesting take on different asian dishes. Big, bold flavors, in plates that are easy to share.

Always providing great food and service across all meal periods. Love this place!

Rice & Gold is fantastic. Dale Talde has really gone big with this Bowery post. In a place filled with some of the city’s best dim sum and value for food, Rice & Gold is a behemoth compared to the mom and pop places that surrounds it. That being said Dale’s food hold its own, with huge bold Asian flavors that he is known for, the mushroom sticky rice was unctuous and the sambal shrimp was the spice of the night. Fantastic venue to take friends for a drink and excellent bites with superb flavors. A remarkable place, and this is before the rooftop and its views. Highly recommend to anyone, locals or visitors alike.

Dumplings were great, longevity noodles kinda bland & gummy. Lobster with tamarind butter was outstanding. Yummy drinks.

3.0Dined on March 16, 2018

Great food. Some dishes were quite spicy. Nice space. Very poor service. Did this restaurant just open? If so it’s excusable but otherwise not. I don’t think that they will have many return customers which is a death sentence for nyc restaurants.

This was one of the worst dining experiences I've literally ever had. We sat down at 12:45pm and by 1:40, we had been served two appetizers for our table. We had to harass them to fill our glass on the bottomless Mimosa, we asked out server three times to bring sprite to the 3 year old dining with us before giving up at asking the bar for it ourselves and upon complaining - the manager came over to argue with us about when we placed our order. They discounted the whole meal by $50 for "our trouble" when we redlined the bill - we discovered they had overcharged us by $75 for things we didn't order or things they had promised to comp us while we were waiting. It went beyond "bad service" which I'm normally fairly forgiving of. The food was actually quite good but the experience was laughable and ridiculous.

The fried rice was the best thing we ate. Fun atmosphere, cool menu but service wasn’t great. Waitress kept pouring tap water into my sparkling and after we told her she said oh well and never got me another glass. Overall a fun place but nothing really special food wise.

4.0Dined on March 7, 2018

The food here was amazing, the menu is designed for sharing so we ordered a bunch of stuff and it was all excellent, particularly the supreme fried rice and the pork ribs. Definitely recommend.

Nothing special for that price range. The service was really good, the food no so much

Food was okay. Lots of hype. Kitchen and restaurant seemed to have an abundance of gnats - so we couldn’t finish our food.

3.0Dined on February 25, 2018

Food was great but it's a cavernous space and very hard to hear who you're dining with. Service was fine but not that friendly.

5.0Dined on February 22, 2018

The food was very good, however the waitresses were horrible. We had two and both acted like they were doing us a favor for taking our order.

The pho dumpling we’re very oily, bigger bowls for the pho would be great, it also doesn’t stay very warm (pho) drinks and food take forever. I was really excited to try this place out but wasn’t so impressed.

I came for the Lunar New Year Tasting Menu However When I arrived on Sunday, I was informed the Thrillist site made an error and the establishment only offered the special tasting menu for Friday and Saturday.

Disappointed seeing as I made the trek to lower Manhattan, I figured why not try a dish and see what they had to offer.

Started With The Shrimp Dumplings And The Were Creatively Designed To Look Like Goldfish.

For The Main I opted for the Lobster Fried Rice And Beef Rib. Both Very Tasty.

Food was really. Really poor. Too bad as the space and service was good. But not good enough to compensate for some of the worst food I’ve had in a long time.

1.0Dined on February 17, 2018

While the food was decent and the drinks fairly good, the service was absolutely atrocious. We waited over 15 minutes to be seen by a waiter and a further 20 minutes for our drinks. The food actually arrived before the drinks. While the service got a bit better in the middle of the meal, our waiter brought us the check before we asked for it (and before we had had the drinks included in our voucher), made a mistake on the bill, etc.
