We were in Ventura on Martin Luther King holiday. Decided to try Rice for a late lunch just based on the look of the place and the specials boards that were displayed outside. The interior was a simple but pleasant decor, and the waiter was able to accommodate our party of three right away by asking another guest who had... More

Rice Thai Cuisine has the most delicious creations that are always made with the freshest ingredients! We are so happy every time we eat there, which is often, that this great restaurant is in our own back yard. We have many... More

This restaurant was open on a Monday night, which can be rare to find. The food was delicious. Everyone enjoyed. Highly recommend!

This small, friendly Thai restaurant does a good job. The service is friendly--though could use more staff on a busy night--and the food is quite good. Nice enough dining room and the menu is quite complete. Small, well done, and reliable.

Delightful place to eat at - especially with friends. You may have to wait. Seating designed for smaller parties - but they can accommodate parties larger than six/eight. Try out the various dishes - explorer! You will enjoy! Have been there multiple times since it opened. Staff can provide good suggestions - go ahead and ask questions. Share items -... More

There are several Thai restaurants when visiting Ventura. Rice Thai is an excellent choice. Bright flavors, generous portions and a menu with plenty of variety to satisfy just about everyone. Looking forward to returning on our next visit to Ventura.

They have the best green curry I've ever tasted. Whenever I'm in Ventura, I always make a point to stop here and have it with the brown/red rice - it's so good! We also tried the pumpkin stir-fry dish last week and that was excellent as well. On our last visit to the restaurant, we met the owner (Dee) and... More

While the pad thai was better than most in Ventura, the rest of the meal was disappointing. The shrimp spring rolls each had half a piece of shrimp and were mostly cabbage. The coconut chicken consisted of overcooked thin flat breast slices with too much sauce. There was no complexity of flavors. They do offer red rice in addition to... More
