The restaurant was very welcoming and we enjoyed three dishes that were all delicious and very generous portions. The meals were all very reasonably priced. I'd not recommend for a special meal but an everyday dinner. I'd guess it would be popular with students.

Ok price, food is decent. Was there with a friend, he had a soup and he was satisfied, for me it was first time trying thai food.

Rice Bowl is a small, informal Thai café located by the square Youngstorget. Thai artifacts and bamboo on the walls gives the café an oriental feel to it. Sometimes they also play Thai music. At Rice Bowl you can choose between a selection of Asian dishes, mainly Thai noodle dishes. This is a popular place, so you may have to wait a few minutes to get a table. Once you've ordered, the food usually arrives quickly, and you can get a good portion at a cheap price.
