What Insiders Are Saying
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.
Very kool place in every way imaginable. Attractive staff, good music, not to loud, good service and in my view not pretentious.
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.
Love this place. Will definitely go back
Great food and Service. Too loud.
Not your typical Chinatown experience.
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!
Outstanding food and ambiance!! Our server was super friendly but not super attentive which was disappointing. Overall though, I would recommend.
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 ;)
Mi aspettavo un
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
We did family style. The food was incredible. Service was also good. We made a reservation and we're out in a great booth. The dessert took too long to come out, so we ended up leaving before we received it.
Amazing service! We will definitely come back! The watermelon salad was a nice surprise. Pho soup dumplings makes me want a whole bowl of pho!
amazing fantastic excellent, cannot say enough good things! first of all, the place is unique and FUN inside. everyone who works there was beyond attentive, kind, nice and knowledgeable. but the food.... DELICIOUS. we ordered at least 8 dishes and every single one was incredible from the buns to the dumplings to the soup to the rice to the duck. cannot wait to come back!
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 .
Really fun experience and good food ! All of the bathrooms were pretty gross and remained so for hours.
Had friends visiting from out of town and this was the perfect spot. Lively atmosphere, friendly staff and of course delicious food! It's also perfect for sharing with a great selection of prie fixe options.
Had a very enjoyable experience. The food was great and the service was wonderful.
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.
Good pho steam dumplings. Nice spacious dining room which is rare in Manhattan these days.
Service was rough! Food was delectable, so there’s something there.
Service was great! Loved the ambiance
Business dinner with clients. Amazing food, service and ambiance in a very cool setting. Thanks!!
The food was great, it was true Asian fusion. I loved the fried chicken sandwich with Thai flavors. Our servers were nice, but sometimes it was difficult to flag a waiter down. Everything we ordered tasted great, the only downside was that our dishes took very long to come out. I came to try the NYCGo menu which is three courses with an appetizer, main, and shaved ice dessert, but at the pace the food came out we were there 2.5 hours with long pauses between courses.
Service was fine but not a great value. Did not like the drinks list.
Loved this place, the food was excellent!!!
Cute graffiti and good luck cats everywhere
The server forgot my drink order but it’s ok still enjoyed he restaurant week menu ( he comped it without me asking 👍🏾 plus I basically gave 2x the tip back )
I’ll come back again for brunch :)
Extremely good food and great service. The ambiance was cool and modern. Would recommend for dates and special occasions.
Rice & Gold was great!! The decor is so cool, and definitely not what I was expecting. We went for restaurant week, and the food exceeded my expectation! I had the Spicy Chicken Bao, and they were amazing! The sauce they used was so delicious. I then split the Thai Fried Chicken and Pineapple Fried Rice and both were amazing. The chicken was moist and super flavorful and the fried rice was great! Highly recommend, and not too expensive.
Everything was good, besides the price?
Can always check out The Crown rooftop afterwards!
I booked this place for my boyfriends birthday since I have been to the chefs other restaurant and I have to say I was super disappointed. While the food was good the service was horrible. The waitress would look at our empty cocktails and walk away, once we were done, the food was packed up we didnt see the waitress again until I went to the hostess. I had brought candles to do a birthday dessert, but did not even end up staying. After complaining they just told me they only had two waitresses and one was new. Finally got the check and the waitress slammed the check book down.
Very disappointing since the food was good. Other reviews said service wasn't great, but I would not come back or recommend.
A cool space for a drink at the bar. They do have happy hour. Restaurant service was extremely slow (not experienced waiters), very mediocre food. Nice atmosphere though. Good for a big group.
I saw your pho soup dumplings online and really wanted to check it out when I visited NY City last weekend. When I arrived, I thought the restaurant was really huge but there weren't that many customers there and the way how tables were arranges were quite weird. However, thought it was pretty cool still. The restaurants were fairly clean. The service was not great. He wasn't that attentive. We had to get his attention to get our drinks and food order every time. So got the pho soup dumplings and thought it tasted just like pho so not bad. We also ordered the Vietnamese Black Pepper Shrimp and the noodles were like the decoration crispt noodles that usually serve on Chinese dishes but they used it as the main card in that dish. The other one was the rice noodle (I don't even remember the name of it but it was on the first item of noodles section on the menu.) Man, it was stale and the rice noodles were all broken and soft like it has been in a leftover pot for days. My friends and I are both Asian and we couldn't believe how bad the food tasted for the price you charged. This is gotta be one of the worse restaurants that I've ever had for a long time and I was very disappointed because your Youtube channels and website/social media really bluff a lot about what you serve. I'm not sure if it was just because it was a Sunday night and maybe no manager or owners were there or what but this has got to be one of the most disappointing dinners I've had in a long time. I don't really cook and I know I can cook A LOT better than that. It killed my desired to want to try your food from Houston, TX and never will I come in for anything ever again. From a culture perspective, you are representing Asian culture in the Big Apple and Vietnamese and Chinese dishes shouldn't taste like that at all. I strongly recommend either the owner or manager pay attention to what your staffs are serving your customers.
Food was very salty. Did not like it that a 20% gratuity was automatically included in the bill. The server never came back to ask how our food was. My dessert was completely frozen and not edible. My chicken sandwich was a little pink. The shrimp toast was insanely salty. This restaurant is not going to survive with this type of food.
For hot and spicey taste buds. Great rooftop bar before or after dining.
Went for restaurant week brunch, the appetizers and dessert were great but the Thai chicken sandwich entree was very bland. Also, felt like they were cutting corners with the sandwich which was mostly bun. Service was strangely terrible for a place that was 1/6 full. Maybe my expectations were too high because I'm a fan of Chef Talde.
Maria was a great server!
Food was amazing.
And drinks were phenomenal :)
Thank u! Definitely going back for bottomless brunch.
Gorgeous venue too♥️
Came here for restaurant week/my birthday. They actually have a prefixe that is cheaper than the restaurant week menu with more food. Food was awesome and abundant. Service is also great. Would def return
Food was delicious...when it finally arrived. I went for restaurant week and ordered the salad option. My friend got her shrimp shumai in a reasonable time but I never got my salad even after I had told the server. When my entree came out I again said that I never got my salad and then the brought it out. We did get a free round of drinks to compensate but it was annoying especially because I was pretty hungry and it was a salad of all things.
Unfortunately it is the first time I leave a bad review. The restaurant is nice but everything was horrible: terrible food, bad service and no ambience
The space is really cool, the food is tasty (yet negligently prepared--there were bits of eggshell and twine in my beef noodles), but the service is downright awful. Nobody seemed to know what was going on, food came out randomly after long waits--and the place was 2/3 empty. It's really a shame, this could be a terrific place, but the incompetent service totally mars the experience here. Needs a major managerial shake-up. As it is now, there's no way this place will survive.
