Food was wonderful. Drinks were excellent! Great place to go for large selection of specialty martinis .. and at a great price! Service was slow as the restaurant was packed. Took our table of 7 over an hour just to get our bills - after we were done with dinner. We were the first customers and the second to last to leave due to the lengthy delay of our checks.

We all had different entree's and all were excellent. I had the General's Chicken with both Jasmine and Brown rice. The chicken, rice and vegetables were perfect. My husband had the sushi and my son had the soup. All of it was really good. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes quality food at a reasonable price.

Christmas Day Brunch was delicious. Great variety of food for an all-you-can=eat brunch. Staff was very friendly. Only negative: we were seated near the outside patio door and it was very chilly as staff frequently went outside for more chairs.

The prime was too rare. The restaurant temp too cold. The table was deep in restaurant, therefore server did not check on refills as often as I would have liked. Gluten free mash was cold and rigid. Not a large selection of choices for the price. Sushi was good.

Very good, best meal I have had in a long time. My husband loves his food spicy and they hit the mark with their Thai options. I had a lovey scallop and shrimp dish and the vegetables were almost better than the seafood and the seafood was perfect.

Service was very slow, food was not the normal fresh taste. Very disappointed as we had purposely planned a wonderful evening to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary.

We will search for a new sushi location since this was our second time to be disappointed here.

The tandoori chicken was dry but the accompanying yoghurt and mango chutney were good. The Kung Pao chicken was not spicy and was ladened with peas and carrots. The chicken in that dish was steamed or boiled, had little flavor. Had high hopes but probably won't be back.

Service was poor. drinks and meals were forgotten and the waiter didn't notice. timing was late on drinks. Style of delivery was poor. It felt like staff had zero training and little experience. Kitchen was slow - but we were after the rush and the restaurent was emptying out. Food was mixed - some good - some OK, nothing great..

I used this service to make a reservation. When I showed on time, I was told there'd be a 10 min wait for my table. I was the only one waiting on a table, so I can only assume my reservation was only a suggestion to them. They had live music, and nice ambiance, ...but unfortunately I only saw enough as I was walked away from the restaurant area, back to THE BAR, past open tables that had "reserved" signs on them, to get a table under the TV playing sports... back at the bar. Worth mentioning twice.

Once seated, the waitress did an average job. Nothing special, nothing bad. She was present to take my order etc, but nothing to write home about. We did get the wrong drink order, which was no big deal, but it was just one more thing on the list of my "Why did I come here for a first date?" thoughts...

I would eat here again, just because of the unique food and location, but just to eat. I'm not bringing anyone here to impress...

The food was really good and the portions were generous. We ordered with the intention of having enough for the following days lunch and we were not disappointed. The three items we ordered - curried fried rice, a filet dish and a pho, were all flavorful and well made. The curried dish did not indicate spicy (other than the word 'curry') but it was, tasted great though. The only disappointment was the dessert. Mine was the gf bread pudding but I think it had something in it that bothered me. It tasted good but not amazing (dessert should always be amazing or what is the point, eh) and my husband had what appeared to be cheesecake on the menu but was a frozen prepackaged cheesecake flavored fried pocket thing, not good at all. Every time I have eaten here the food was really good but I advise to skip dessert.

This was our second time at Rice and thought it was just as good as the first. Sushi seems fresh and there is a good variety. My husband had a dish with some sliced ribeye steak, which was good except that his meat was not trimmed very well; too fatty. I also thought some of it was extremely rare. He likes it medium-rare or medium (pink), and this was kind of red. It was very tasty, though! I think, overall, I am pleased with the dishes I've had. We will be back!
