We have gone to Rice Bistro for many years and never been disappointed with anything. The food is excellent, the atmosphere lovely, great service, and you can actually have a conversation without yelling. We will continue to enjoy Rice Bistro for many years to come.

They are going through the motions at Rice. It used to be a great little neighborhood place, but the last few times the food has been only average at best. Today we had a fish dish, but the veggies were plain, no sauce no nothin' and served at room temp as was the rice. Clearly the veggies were microwaved and never saw a wok. The rice was room temp. At an earlier visit, what appeared to be bagged frozen veg were scattered across the entree. This is NOT Asian cooking. Today, the manager tried to help, but if the kitchen doesn't know how to cook Chinese, nothing will help. We are sad that a once serviceable restaurant is taking the easy way out.

Moved to Denver from Los Angeles a few years back and was very concerned I wouldnt find a good nearby sushi place. Having discovered this gem I am overjoyed. The head sushi chef is always warm and welcoming. The hot food is good but the sushi is amazing. I highly recommend the salmon belly, wasabi creme roll, and the gabby roll, but its all going to be excellent. Pricing is good as well.

Great spot for sushi and other delicious Asian dishes. Some innovative rolls, plus good quality standard sushi fare. Service was great...had a good time.

Overpriced for very typical Asian food. The waiter asked if I wanted my wine refreshed when it was half full which was confusing so I said sure! He came out with another full glass f wine and then carted another $16! Will not he going again! Dinner with an app, 3 maki rolls, one entree, and 1 cocktail and 2 glasses of wine was $120! Crazy and I'm from the Bay Area!!!

Love all of the gluten-free entrees. Parking was a challenge with the parking lot being repaved!

Located in an unpretentious strip mall, Rice Bistro has a perhaps surprising warm and elegant interior. Varied menu at lunch, including affordable lunch specials. The menu is typical Chinese with some Japanese and a wide variety of sushi. Service was excellent on my last visit; friendly and efficient.

First Lie:

They served a sushi roll with "super white tuna" on top. We eat all kinds of tuna, but never heard of "super white." When we asked our server what it was, she said it was delicious melt-in-your-mouth tuna. But the price was not for tuna. Hmmm. Something was "fishy." Quick google on our phone and we discovered -- to our shock -- that super white tuna is a sham, a fake name for escolar, a white snake mackeral that has a disgusting way of creating an almost instant laxative. It's called the Ex Lax fish.

Why would you serve this and call it something else???? A dangerous lie! Fortunately we didn't eat enough to cause harm. I encourage you to google escolar before you ever try a bite.

Second Lie:

On the sake menu, they list a range of sake bottles starting at around $8 going up. You think you are going up in quality, but no..... they are not the same sized bottles! They should list the MLs for each bottle so you are not duped. We had bought a bottle of our favorite Hakushika Fresh and Light for $8 thinking it was a good deal (it's usually $14 or $16) but lo and behold it was a "miniature" bottle. Come on.

Food was good, as was the service. Prices are a little high for what you get in terms of quality. We made the mistake of going on Mother's Day. They squeezed in extra tables wherever they could to maximize on the day, as many places do. One problem with that is that anytime someone needed to get up or move it required several others to have to move as well (Mother's Day, lots of kids). But the biggest problem was the wait. Waited over 30 minutes for our food after ordering. On a different evening when the kitchen staff isn't over extended maybe this is a 5 star review across the board?
