Had lunch at Rainbow recently and wasn't impressed. My lo main was okay, but tasted like beef bouillon cubes. I did enjoy the fresh vegetables in the dish. Service was fine. The best part of the experience was the tab...just under $8 for lunch.

Husband and myself went to try out a different Chinese place and heard good reviews on this...wrong! I ordered chicken with mixed vegetables, stating, NO mushrooms and he ordered chicken chow mein. Mine was good until I came upon the mushrooms and stopped right there!...More

This is located right in the Best Western Hotel, so it is convenient. It has a great bar area. The restaurant area is nice. The staff is friendly. The food is excellent and you get plenty.

Surprised at how good the food is and with large, very large portions. Do not think I finished an entire meal.

My husband and I and his co workers eat here often for lunch. I love the Green Curry Chicken and also the Pan yang Chicken Curry and he loves the Cashew chicken. The service is always friendly and attentive and the prices are very reasonable....More
