Open from Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner, The Rice Den is a perfect venue for all occasions, whether you're having a quick business lunch, an intimate dinner for two, or a boisterous group gathering. And if that isn't enough, you can take The Rice Den home with you. Browse through our Cantonese deli and pick up one of our housemade sauces, condiments or loose leaf teas, all of which have been specially created in collaboration with our finest suppliers.
