This was the perfect choice for a hearty meal and long conversation before we headed for a show to the Hangar Theater. There is always something on the menu that is no available in most Southeast Asian restaurants -- I tried the Mok Plaa (catfish cooked in plantain leaves) while my friend had an interesting entree wrapped in lettuce leaves...

the food here is excellent and it's great to have Lao food in a relatively small city. Delivery is quick and cheap. Try the laab gai.

Really good and inexpensive Laotian and Vietnamese food! Very tasty, lots of choices, and you can bring your own adult beverages. Try the sticky rice!

We started with the Thai Iced tea and stayed for a wonderful dinner. The tea is definitely worth the $3.00. Is large, refreshing and even though I usually don't like sweeter drinks will have again when we return...soon! Started with the drunken noodles which is satay (peanut based) sauce on noodles. Then followed with rice vermicelli & coconut (sort of... More

A nice small and clean sit down store front with carry out too. It is a little pricey though. The menu has lots of options with your choice of protein and heat level over either rice or noodles. I had chicken and noodles with medium spice for $11.25 and hot tea for $2.15.

Pro tips: 1. Order the Laotian dishes! 2. Get the Mango and Sticky Rice for dessert. Review: The owner/operator and his family have run the place for years, and before that they got their start at the Farmers' Market. They make and serve Thai and Loatian food with consistent quality. Many people order Thai standards here, but the real treasures... More

After tasting a dish we ordered several diverse dishes to take out. The service was polite and prompt. The varied preparations were all very tasty and will definitely put on our "regular" list.

Drove all the way to Sticky Rice for a confidential working lunch. It was perfect for that given that we were the only ones at a table at first -- most other customers were there for take-out. What was surprising was how extensive their menu was and how excellent our orders were. We both settled for the cassia-based curry with... More

We were in Ithaca for the week and made a point of eating here because of fond memories from years ago. As good as we remembered. Our kids (ages 1 & 5) ate huge portions and were asking for more. Highly recommended.

Sticky rice has the best thai in ithaca for takeout or delivery. There isn't much of a seating area and this is definitely not the place to take your parents. There is certainly a bang for buck factor here, and the food is amazing. Try the purple sticky rice!!
