This restaurant is consistently great. They have traditional Thai favorites like massaman curry and pad thai, and a house Thai salad with peanut dressing. All of the dishes are made with fresh ingredients and the flavor really reflects it. They also have great specials that are inventive and creative. It's a small comfortable place with a nice atmosphere. The porch is a particularly nice place to sit and have a good meal during mild weather. Servers are friendly and helpful. The wine list isn't extensive but there is pretty good variety and servers make great suggestions for wine and food pairings. If you're feeling adventurous, tell them a few things that you like and ask them for a suggestion or a surprise dish.

I loved the food, and the style... it's a converted house in historic Roswell. This is the best Thai I have had in Atlanta, but the price is higher than I usually can spend on a tight budget. My 3-star value rating may be a little unfair since my budget is tight... the quality was outstanding, so 5 stars overall. I'd like to be a regular, when I can afford it.

My husband and I were hoping this place would be great, since it is close to home, but it was just okay. We did not like the food very much. There are better places to go for Thai, and we'll keep looking!

We enjoyed Surin of Thailand more. The dishes were tastier, the atmosphere was better, the service was excellent, the portions were larger and the we were suprised to find the prices were about 15% less tahn Rice. Rice was not bad, but didn't really compare to Surin. We were also surprised that the waiter(ess)at Rice, without our permission,added a 19% plus gratuity for a party of 5. She did tell us that she did (made it sound like a favor) She shouldn't have done that without our permission. There was nothing on the menu indicating that policy. Service was good, but the food was fair.

Excellent Thai in a great atmosphere. The food is not greasy the way some Asian restaurants make it. I have been there a few times and can't resist the delicious Pad Thai. It is a rather small place, not for claustrophobics. It can get crowded on a Friday or Saturday night, yet the service is still very good. I do recommend trying it for lunch when it is far less crowded. Outdoor seating is in full shade in a lovely area.

Green curry is my bellwether dish; pad thai is my husband's. I was very very pleased with the green curry there - fresh and flavorful. The pad thai, though, was disappointing. It was bland and tasteless. Perhaps I'm used to some non-authentic American version of pad thai, but this dish wasn't very appealing. That said, we'll definitely go back; we just won't order the pad thai.

Sorry, Rice didn't do it for me. There's much better thai food for much less cost all over this fair city. Service wasn't great on my visit either. The only thing I loved about Rice was the humongous yummy portions of coconut ice cream. And if you visit Rice in hot weather, you'll find no air conditioning. You'll be cooler outside the cramped restaurant than indoors. You'll love the flies, too....
