I work nearby and go out for lunch about once a week. I go to Rice about once every month or two. Most recently, I mixed it up a little bit and instead of ordering a lunch combo, I got a small order of house special rice and a small order of hot/spicy beef. As usual, everything was very good...

I've eaten at Rice for lunch 3 times and really enjoyed it. They have Bento boxes for lunch , $8.95. I can recommend the shrimp tempura and the General Tsaos.: The tempura is light, crispy, bringing out the flavor of the shrimp and the vegetables. Awesome Miso soup. I didn't care for the Pad Thai, oily with little flavor. Won't... More

This intimate establishment is one of the best restaurants is west Dover. Their unique sushi selection is unlike any that I have seen in the area. They also offer takeout so that you can enjoy your selections on the go.

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to give Rice a try. Our meal was excellent--the sushi was quite good and the salmon teriyaki in the bento box was great. We will definitely go back and try some of the other offerings.

We live close by and eat here about once a month, usually take out. Mostly standard fare, but always well executed. 5-stars, at least for Dover anyway...

I work around the corner and have been going here on/off for about 4 years now. It's always been very very good. First off, I rarely eat sushi....I've had it a few times from Rice, but don't eat it often enough to compare it to other places where I've eaten it. But their Chinese food is excellent. They have the... More

It is a very small restaurant but carries good Chinese, Japanese food. We enjoy ourselves every time. The price is also great and it's clean and cozy.

We had been to Rice awhile ago and found the menu limited as it primarily was centered around Sushi. We thought we would give the restaurant another try and we were pleasantly surprised with the expanded traditional Chinese lunch specials aside from the usual Sushi. The presentation was super and the quality was excellent. Great value. Only problem I see... More
