I have eaten at Ryce on two different trips to Crested Butte and loved it each time! Great Asian food with a lot of selections. More like a restaurant you'd find in Denver than in a little ski town. The place can get really busy...More

Great selections, all types of Asian dishes, not just Chinese. Bring your appetite as the they do not skimp on the sizes. The lettuce wraps were delicious.

Appetizers and entrees are large enough to share with 2 or 3 people easily. The quality is excellent, the flavor is tasty. We asked for "level 3 and Thai spicy" and it met our expectations. We like it spicy. Mild is always available.

We ate here last night after a long day of driving from Durango. The food is good and the atmosphere is fun. Great green tea too.

We ate at Ryce with another couple a few days ago. We had to wait for a table, but the wait was shorter than we were quoted. Always a bonus! Our entrees were huge- we should have shared. No one was able to finish, even...More

I really don't know as we were only there just once for lunch. Maybe you could contact them directly to find out.
Where does the name Ryce come from? Is it a play on the word rice, or does it come from someone's last name?

I do not have a definitive answer. I thought it was a play on the word rice since this is an Asian establishment. Good luck.
