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.
If anyone has issues with the food and or drink quality get them checked for drugs . This place is godly.
The server forgot my order. It came after everyone else was done, and we were one of the only tables in the restaurant. When it did arrive, the chicken sandwich was hard as a brick. I couldn’t bite into it. I could barely even cut into it. I ate the fries, paid the check and wouldn’t bother again. The server did comp my drink but, if this place is struggling they need a manager to pay attention more. The place is beautiful, kind of a shame. I never write reviews but felt inclined because I felt I paid a lot for such oversight.
Place too cavernous which made things loud and hard to get air con to nicely cool the place. Food very creative but portions like tapas. This was not expected although tastiness made up for that.
Food was delicious but the restaurant was 90% empty on a Friday night.
I highly recommended this place. At least try it once. Order the steak and the grill lobster.
Excellent excellent food! Really delicious and flavorful. The kitchen staff were accommodating and this was extra important especially since we had a seafood allergy. Our server was wonderful. The cocktails were inventive and so good. This place is definitely a favorite!
We had a fabulous dining experience! The staff was well informed in suggesting coursing & the banquette we were seated at was extremely spacious and comfortable. It was all really great.
We went for Sunday brunch and it was nearly empty - I think if it was busy, it would have been way louder with those high ceilings! But the decor/atmosphere was very cool, and the food was indulgent. I had the Hangover sandwich, which more than serves the purpose. My date had the gnocchi, which was not particularly gnocchi-like in my opinion, but he still loved the dish (the gnocchis were almost translucent and not solid lumps like I expected). We also had soup dumplings (excellent) and duck spring rolls (I didn't try those; my date gobbled them up). My only complaint is no dessert menu! Would love to go back for dinner sometime; I'm sure it's hoppin!
Food was amazing and their cocktails did not disappoint. The twice cooked ribs were fall off the bone and the cauliflower side was delicious. Highly recommend this spot.
The food was over seasoned and the ingredients weren’t matching the flavor they were trying for. Such as the pho soup dumplings, what pho was the chef eating? It didn’t have the iconic deep meat flavor with a clear finish and savoring comfort that you’d expect from a bowl of pho. Then there’s the $30 pho! The ingredients were top notch but it was an overkill. The bone marrow wasn’t doing anything for the soup and the ribeye was lost in the soup and short ribs. It was a disappointment to see such beautiful ingredients get shortchanged by over seasoning and a complete miss on the chef’s execution.
Everything we ate here was delicious, including the cocktails. The service was attentive but not overwhelming. This place should be busier than it is, so get in while you can!
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
