I visited with a small group of friends of varying tastes. The restaurant is intimate but the tables are not too close together. The menu selections are excellent. As a vegetarian I potentially struggle to find something within the meat courses but there were plenty of choices for both starters and main. The food itself was extremely well cooked and... More

As one of my friends must eat Gluten Free they chose this restaurant as they had enjoyed their take-away from Rice Thai. We were greeted warmly and shown to our table. Our drinks order was taken and hefty menus supplied. Amazing choice! So much to tempt. Our starters and main courses which were beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. We will... More

We've eaten here a couple of times now. The staff are really friendly and the food fantastic. I can really recommend theprawn toast which is possibly the best I have ever tasted. Well worth a visit but take care to book ahead if you can; its a popular place. 😀

We had high hopes for this restaurant as the reviews are all outstanding and the restaurant is fully booked most nights. Tonight's meal certainly disappoint. The pork kebabs are amazing and the pad Thai and Weeping Tiger outstanding. Really friendly staff and attentive service definitely make this the best restaurant we've been to in Bedford town centre.

I had the king prawn starter, which was top notch - and very large creatures they were too. A good pad thai for mains, but the prawns were definitely the highlight. We were an awkward group, and came in early, and scattered, but the staff accomodated this. However, due to the small size, it wasn't possible to seat us all... More

We've been to Rice a few times since it opened and I'm always impressed with the food and the service. We last went as a group of 7 to celebrate two family birthdays and again it did not disappoint. We had the starter platters to share and then each had different main courses, all of which were delicious. The service... More

Have been wanting to try this restaurant but always seems to get booked up. No surprise as the premise itself is small and is very popular. The staff are very friendly and the ambience is very cosy. If you want a quiet dining experience with privacy you will not get it here. Started with the Mixed Platter, i cannot remember... More

Been twice in the past couple of months and both experiences were absolutely spot on - cosy, intimate & great atmosphere with attentive yet professional service. On both visits we had an assortment of starters to share which were delicious and plentiful. All parties enjoyed every aspect of the meal, my personal highlight was creating my own Super Pad Thai...
