Thank you Google for suggesting this amazing Thai restaurant that delivered an amazing meal with great service in a super clean and friendly location. About the decor, very modern approach to traditional styles. Especially loved the hand-drawn (in chalk!) artwork on the walls. Staff was courteous and knowledgeable about the best dishes based on our likes/dislikes. We ordered an abundance of food and everything was fresh and delicious and well crafted. Food came out fast. Staff took good care of us. And it was a great night on an unexpected visit. Thanks Rice & Spice, we appreciate your whole team!
I have eaten at more Thai restaurants in my life than I can remember. 99% of them are fine, but nothing exceptional. Rice & Spice has found that secret sauce that really hits the mark. Maybe its the Royal training of the head chef? Dont be fooled by the restaurants unassuming exterior and its rather lonely location on the back end of a shopping center. The interior is well-decorated and has a very diverse clientele. My mother and I ordered take-out dinner and were blown away at how delicious the food was. Its not exactly cheapmost mains run in the $20+ range, but, for the quality of the food, I would argue that the prices are justified. My neighbors have ordered many times and have raved about the food quality. We were not disappointed. I would strongly recommend and its worth a drive, even if you dont live in the Pineville area. Addendum: the take-out portions are deceivingly large. One pad Thai order easily was enough for four (4!!) meals. With that in mind, the prices seem very reasonable.
We like this place a lot. The service is great but sometimes slow as they are busy and I believe understaffed. We had Tom Yum soup a bit spicy but delicious. Pad Thai is a staple ( I got it with shrimp and my daughter got it with beef) and you cant go wrong with the beef pho ( one of my favorites)
Where has this Thai restaurant been all my life? Great flavors. My wife ordered the Chicken Pho. She left her dish unsupervised and her 10 year old son stole a bite. He might have traded meals except his Drunken Noodles were a little taste of heaven. I was allowed to taste my family's dish if I shared mine. I had the Angry Cowboy and wow it was spicy and packed with flavor. The great thing is you can request light spice or Thai Native. If you get Thai Native, have your affairs in order (hahaha) and make sure you order the Thai Iced Tea to cool your pallet. To add another layer of excellence, the hostess was sweet and the bartender did a great job waiting tables. Great service all around. If you like Thai, you ABSOLUTELY MUST try Rice and Spice. You can thank me later!!!! :o)
Overall I was very impressed with the food we ordered as its hard to find a good Thai restaurant. The veggie drunkin noodle was ordered medium spicy which I thought was good but a bit to spicy for others so keep that in mind.Red curry with Tofu was ordered Mild so it was good for everyone. The papaya salad was a nice size portion and pretty authentic, I felt it could use a bit more lime and small shrimps. It came with a side of pork rinds to snack on. Not outrageous prices, great service on the phone, clean, and great flavor close by. I'll be back for more!
