Rice & Gold is a huge restaurant in the bottom of a hotel in Chinatown. The food is Asian fusion, and it’s both pricey and a little cheesy.

The Infatuation is an app and website which uses a small team of local editors who dine anonymously to rate and review restaurants. We are partnering with them to bring you their smart, helpful, trustworthy reviews of restaurants on OpenTable

The menu on their website doesn't in any way reflect what is offered. It's now an Avocado Toast kind of place.

This was a wonderful experience, we got the two person deal to share. SO much food and they bring it out very quick -- the salad was SO GOOD.

My girlfriend and I had an awesome time here! Everything from the Korean fried cauliflower, to the edamame, and the thai fried chicken was excellent.

Het eten was beneden alle verwachtingen.
De muziek was zeer luid maar er was wel sfeer.
Bij de rekening en de vooropgestelde prijs kwamen nog heel wat extra kosten en taxes bij.
Geen aanrader.

Service, despite a pretty quiet night left much to be desired. Food came out half cold and not all of it. Adding a service charge of 20% for a table of 7 was fine but not ok with the service provided.
Food was fair. Would have been better if it wasn't cold.

The tasting menu has got to be one of the best values in the city. My party of 6 came out with "take-away" bags after everything was said and done. The cocktail list was awesome as well.

They cut their entire dim sum menu. It wasn’t posted anywhere online that they had no dim sum! Absolutely no dumplings at all. Really disappointing as we really wanted to try the pho soup dumplings. The cauliflower was great, but we ended up not ordering much food. Cool space but just absurdly expensive for what we got.

I droved from NJ to enjoy their pho's and all the old menus they had. I was very disappointed, the food was not good and it was a waste of time. Unfortunately, I will not be returning.

Worst food and service ever for $200.

We had the Royal spread and the kitchen had serious problems.

The worst thing was the dessert, 2 scoops of ice cream, some wiped cream an sprinkel all over, it felt like we was at a childerens party and not at a restaurant in NYC.

I was disappointed that they had discontinued the pho dumplings. That was my main objective in trying this restaurant but was unable to give it a try. In addition, I thought the pork belly ramen I ordered had excellent flavor. However, the price point for this restaurant just felt out of place in Chinatown where many neighboring restaurants offer similarly tasty dishes for a fraction of the price.

This was my first visit precipitated by a voucher I came across on line. I would not have found such a beautiful spot just a few train stops away otherwise. I'm usually shy about using a voucher but the staff was so wonderful & made my party feel very welcome! The place was cool & eclectic. The food was very good & the service was attentive & warm which made everything that much better!
As an extra lovely finish to a great time I received an email offering me a free drink on my next visit which I will be using very soon!

Sunday brunch was delicious. Must get pho soup dumplings and the fried chicken bao. Service was attentive, although a bit too attentive. The waiter asked if we wanted our checks while we were still sipping on our coffees at the end of our meals and as soon as I signed the check, the waiter was quick to collect within a few seconds time!

We came here for brunch on a Sunday and the food was delicious. I wish they had more dimsum items , but what we had was pretty good.
Pho soup dumplings - must get! Really good along with their shrimp shumai and chicken bao.

The peanut butter and jelly sesame balls was everything!!! We had to order it twice and I am still dreaming about theem now. They come in bite size portions so if you love PB, get one order for yourself! Trust me on this.

The Thai chicken and waffle was ok, a bit too sweet. It’s the only dish we didn’t finish. Hunan noodles and fried rice were a hit.

The ambiance was great. We came a bit early (5 minutes before 11am) and they weren’t ready, which was totally fine. I just felt like we were of a bother to the staff. )We had an 11 am reservation ). The service was a hit or miss. One guy (not a waiter) who was attentive and great, then there was our waiter and other staff who barely cracked a smile.

I would go back for the food, maybe try dinner this time. Hopefully staff will be friendlier then. =)

LOVED it! Beautiful, creative decor, and we were seated right by the front window, the tables were nicely spaced out and they had ample room further back for booths and more tables. The two of us started with three dim sum dishes, then reordered two of them and a brunch dish. Everything was super creative, beautiful, and delicious. The place looks great, but the prices were just right ;)

Buon ristorante cinese. Abbiamo trovato un locale di tendenza con ottimo menu fusion ambiente modernissimo design di gran classe e servizio impeccabile. Il conto un po’ salato ma a New York ormai la qualità si paga carissima. E qui la qualità abbonda. non perdetevi un aperitivo o almeno una visita al bar dell’adiacente hotel 50 Bowery. Vista mozzafiato e cocktails perfetti

Got seated early which was awesome . The food was great . Ordered the hangover sandwich and bacon egg and cheese fried rice . It was sooo good . I will be back . The servers were inattentive as I ordered the bottomless brunch drinks and had to look for a server to refill , which was weird since the place was empty . But other than that the place was ok .

Snippy waitress. The hostesses, doormen and general manager were great . Friendly and enthusiastic. Waitress was condescending and unhelpful. We waited a while for her to take our order and the general manager came over and took our drink order an appetizer order. He was very nice. Liked the shrimp and lobster dumpling. Sauce was on the inside and was very tasty. Food was so flavorful we never even used any of the sauces that are on the table.

This restaurant has such great potential but we came in for brunch on a Sunday at 1:30pm and the place was pretty much empty. The music was very low and absolutely no ambiance. This is such a shame because so much time was spent on the decor. They also close the bar at 3pm so not sure why the promote a 2 hour brunch special. This place really needs to invest in some marketing, perhaps a dj, or hiring promoters.
