The food and service was wonderful. Live singer was not very appropriate for a relaxing dinner as she was not any good and the mike was too loud for the dining space. We packed it up and took it home.

I am a filipina and i really loves to eat on some asian cuisine restaurants. It's my first time on this restaurant and their food is so awesome. I love it and so with my in laws with me eating on that day. Not only because I'm asian I love the food but with my in laws which they are white said the foods are really good too. We love to go back here again to try some of their menus.

Food was very good and service outstanding. My only regret was that we were seated under the diffuser for the air conditioning unit and the temperature was very cool. Some of our party had jackets but other did not due to the outside temperature of low 70s. Overall a very good experience and we will be back, but with a jacket.

Great Hapopy our. Well drinks for $3. Nice selection of happy hour appetizers. Food was good. I had the Skinny Meal Salon with vegetables and Quinoa. It did not arrive with any Quinoa, but I was on the fence about asking for it. Decided to stick with just veggies which were done well. Salmon was a bit overcooked and very salty but overall flavor was fairly good. Would probably not order again. Hubbie enjoyed the sushi and our friends enjoyed their meals as well. Was a bit disappointed that the waiter asked if we wanted another drink 5 minutes AFTER Happy Hour ended instead of doing a "last call."

Using Open Table we were able to set the dinner time that we wanted which was very nice .
The food was outstanding as always, Drinks were a little weak tasted like punch.

The table that we were seated at had an issue with one of the legs being to short so the table would rock. Our waitress took the time to level the leg by putting something under it. Really does not sound like much but she was wearing a dress and had to get down on her knees to fix the table. This kind of service is rare.
Overall a very fun place to have a nice dinner.
Thanks

Best kept secret in Eagle ID. We moved here almost four years ago and had never tried Rice Contemporary Asian Cuisine. The service was great, the food delicious, and the atmosphere relaxing. There's a vast selection of Asian foods and very reasonable prices for a delicious meal.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because my son was hoping for the bigger noodles in the
Pad Thai and it was made with rice noodles. Not really a big deal. I recommend this restaurant.
We'll be back for sure!

I really loved the food, however the service was extremely slow, unfriendly and not a good atmosphere with our servers apparent non caring attention.
I will go back one more time as I drive from Nampa to get there and didn’t enjoy that experience. I met a Executive Chef friend and we were just sad about the service. I am a F&B Director and had wished for more.

We celebrated NYE with 4 specialty rolls, green curry, a couple of handhelds, and a couple nori. We loved the curry, but will try a few different rolls next time. We were so pleased with the cabernet choice to complete the meal. Great service.

We had steamed dumplings, summer rolls, the Korean bulgogi entree, and Pad thai with tofu. Overall our food was pretty good, but the pad thai was very strange and we did not eat it. It only had noodles and tofu with a sauce that did not resemble pad thai. It was more like a tomato based sauce? There were no vegetables, bean sprouts, peanuts, etc.

Food was very good. Ambiance was okay. We sat outside because inside was SO loud. I wish we could've been inside because of flies and the interior was really nice, but too loud for conversation. Our service was poor. Server looked totally depressed and disinterested, but others were hustling and seemed to be doing well.

Our dining experience on this particular evening was not as high quality as it usually is. Although our server was attentive, kind, and personable, the hosts seemed unprepared for us despite our having a reservation. We arrived a few minutes before our time, and the three hosts went back and forth for several minutes about where we should be seated. The table they chose was situated uncomfortably close to a large family with small children. We were so close at one point one of the children pulled a chair from our table to sit closer to his dad. All around us were tables marked reserved, yet our table, not marked, seemed an afterthought. Again, our server was very polite and did her best to give us a good experience. Unfortunately, the hosts' dismissive and thoughtless choice of table left us feeling like we were crashing a strange family's dinner and very much disregarded despite having a reservation. Next time I'll call directly if using open table is not acknowledged the same way.

Very slow service, server never came back to ask how the meal was, never offered to refill waters, took forever to get our check after asking for it. Quality of food was mediocre at best. Nothing like true asian fusion, sauces were too sweet, almost cloying. I won’t be returning.

We have been here numerous times. Food is very good. They use herb flavors instead of a bunch of salt. Ambiance could use a little work. There wasn't any music playing or it was so low I couldn't hear it. Alcoholic drinks are very good e.g. Moscow mule has a piece of crystallized ginger.
