Rice Paper Scissors Fitzroy
A dream to open a place that embraces the well-loved style of Asian street food. A place with no rules but to have fun with a beer in hand… a place that weary travellers to South East Asia know and love.
Way back in 2013, the boys fulfilled that crazy idea of opening a restaurant where you only used your hands to eat. The food was great, the cocktails… even greater, but best of all were the amazing experiences shared. Food tastes better this way.

Hey Larika Thank you so much for leaving us such a great review! We're so glad you enjoyed the tofu and pork belly! Can't wait to have you back again soon to try the rest of the menu!
Service was really strange - we got really harassed towards the end of our booking, regardless of plenty of free tables around..
Food was lovely but came really spread out so we didn’t really get to mix and match very well.:
Hey Klara Thank you so much for leaving us some feedback. We're so sorry your experience didn't meet your expectations. Due to restrictions and seating times sometimes we need to make room for the next service to make sure everyone gets their full seating times. Hope to see you again soon for another chance!
Once again the team at RPS provided a fantastic dining experience. Never disappoints.

Hey Tonks Thank you so much for leaving us such a great review! So glad you enjoyed everything and can't wait to have you in again soon!
Having visited your CBD restaurant in March we were looking forward to a similar high quality experience and we were very disappointed
The wait staff were friendly energetic and welcoming and when we were asked our impression of meal we answered honestly and she received our feedback very well and adjusted our bill.
Our impression was that’s it’s too big too busy and that your food preparation quality has suffered.
The lamb was excessively fatty or not fat rendered properly which is a time consuming process. However the sticky pork was the most disappointing certainly the fat wasn’t rendered no crispness at all and the meat had the texture of it been cooked in an airfryer. The mouth feel was just yuck fat.
In fact my sisters were both sick that night and believe it was the sticky pork
Hey there! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us some feedback! We are so sorry your experience did not meet your expectations.

Food and Cocktails had excellent flavours. Staff were knowledgeable attentive and helpful. Excellent dining experience.
Great food and service, however would potentially change the music!
Hey HungryDiner, thanks you for the review! What do you want to hear more of and what'd you like to hear less of?
Me and my friend went there for lunch where u can get 5 mains to share for $35 each. We choose the vegan option and they were really nice
Nice place for having a nice share dinner. Fusion cousin.
Great food, excellent service and great staff. We will be back!!
We have been twice recently with different friends and on both occasions the food and overall experience was excellent.
The food is absolutely amazing. The only reason I gave it a 4 was because the desserts and gin cocktail let the place down. Highly recommended everything else.
A fantastic dining experience. Friendly, helpful and efficient wait staff, terrific ambience and delicious food that takes you straight back to Asia.
Amazing food and cocktails! We will be back :)
Food was great - the ceviche and Bahn Mi were front runners - and the service swift and attentive.
Hey Steve Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this great review! Will pass your comments along to the kitchen team, they will be stoked! Glad you enjoyed everything and hope to see you soon!
The food was amazing loved it and the staff was super friendly. 😊
Thanks so much for leaving a great review! Hope to see you again soon!
Wonderful service and extra wonderful food! Will definitely be returning for the ribs and the crying tiger - magnificent.
Hey Caitie! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a great review! We're so happy you enjoyed everything and hope to have you in again soon for some more delicious dishes!
Food is always delicious at RPS. Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because the lamb ribs was very fatty and we didn’t enjoy eating this dish.
Hey Patricia! Thanks so much for leaving us a great review. Glad you enjoyed most of the food and as always we are always looking to improve ourselves and appreciate any and all feedback. We're sorry the ribs weren't up to scratch but hope to see you again soon for another go!
Really enjoyed our lunch at RPS ✌️ The waitress was kind enough to accommodate us when we arrived quite early.
Thanks so much for leaving us a great review! We are always happy to accommodate when are where we can!
We were a group of 4 (two couples) and seated upstairs with two families seated together with at minimum 6 kids. No other customers were seated upstairs even though there were empty tables.
Obviously, it was very noisy and difficult to hear each other talk.
What was disappointing is that when we arrived there was a free table downstairs but we were allocated upstairs, not sure why?
Hey Lou Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us some feedback. We're sorry your experience did not meet you expectation this time. Unfortunately due to covid restrictions at the moment we have had to be careful allocating tables in correct amounts throughout the venue so as to keep everyone distanced. Hope you enjoyed the food and service and hope to have you in again soon!
Great food, poor service. Our table was way too small for 8 people. The waiters were too busy to take our orders.
Hey Jannine Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us some feedback on your experience. We are so sorry your experience did not meet up with your expectations this time. We are always looking to improve ourselves and if there is anything else about your experience that we could improve on we would love to hear it. Hope to see you soon for another chance and some bang up service!
Disappointed the tuna wasn’t available at all. Ordered two cocktails - both extremely weak in taste. Reordered, only got one back. Ordered the ceviche a second time, which lacked the crunchy garnish. Love this place, and know it was a busy afternoon. Will always come back.
Hey Tess Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us some feedback. We are always looking to improve ourselves. We are so sorry your experience did not match your expectation. We hope to see you soon for a second chance and will make sure you have a top notch experience!
strange sequencing of dishes and only brought out rice at the very end of meal
I cannot fault anything about our experience - the service, food, and overall experience was simply exceptional. Highly recommend!
This is a great place to share delicious food with friends. My second visit and I'll be back.
Hey Jill Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review! We look forwards to having you in again for some more delicious food!
Always an amazing experience, we have been there over 5 times and we cannot get tired of it, not to mention the excellence of the food.
The staff is always friendly and kind.
Hey Brauna Thanks so much for the great review! We look forward to having you in again and again for many more amazing experiences!

Amazing food, great restaurant. Highly recommended.
Rice paper scissors has always been a favourite. Amazing food, amazing cocktails and good atmosphere. Pretty reasonable for the amount of food you get and in comparison to other similar banquet style restaurants.
