Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food was OK. Not bad but nothing special. Fortunately, decently sized portions are served there so you should be fine with filling up that tummy.

Best Vietnamese kitchen in Tallinn. Worth to recommend. Enjoyed a 4-course meny and it was a delight from start to end

Very slow service. The waitress was not an expert. We ordered the curry chicken. The food itself was watery and the rice tasteless. Restaurant was empty and many customers don't seem to go there. I was the first time and will not go back!

I don’t leave many reviews but I simply had to with Riis. The people, the ingredients, the menu invention, the retro-asia ambience. Value for money is very good. Positioned in Kadriorg, it’s away from the tourist traps in the Old Town. Thank goodness. We will...be going back soon!More

Came here to try the authentic pho bo recommended by another reviewer. The pho itself tastes very good, the broth was rich. The only thing I found odd was the carrots inside the soup. It seems like the recipes are a bit customized for locals....If you don’t like carrots, don’t forget to mention it. It was not stated on the menu, nor expected so it was a bit surprising, but tasted great anyway.More

One of the few restaurants in Tallinn that serves real authentic Thai and Vietnamese food. Must go if you live in Tallinn.

The food was good, cannot say that I had high expectations, but food quality was pretty normal. I was surprised by the service provided there! Very quick, friendly waitress!

First if you are looking a good taste of Asian food, I really recommend the restaurant Riis. We had a plan to go to another restaurant but since we couldn't reach there with the car we stopped in front of the Riis restaurant and thought...to give it a try. We had a very warm welcome and also the waiter was very friendly, helpful and was taking care of us the whole time. Food is resonable priced and since I love extremely spicy food then Vietnamese pork rolls with nuudles was just spot on. It was nice and spicy. Friend of mine ordered rice with curry and it was nicely presented & also delicious. We had coffees and drinks. The tap water is free of cost and also another great thing is that they have child corner where you can entertain your child. I assume that is my is better to reach out and make a reservation as it was very busy during this day. People were coming to eat "lunch" til 15.30 :) So just to make sure that you will get food on time better give them a call and reserve the table 😊More

It's a nice small restaurant away from the crowds in the centre. They have a variety of different meals and surely anyone can find something for them. It's good to book a table before going, otherwise might not find a seating 😊 Good meal, good...service!More

It was a strange experience. Appetizer (summer rolls) was excellent and a pleasant surprise to start the meal with. When the main courses arrived, the picture was not so good. The one, that looked boring (Chicken with nuts), turned out to be one of the...tastiest meals I have had. Whereas Pad Thai with shrimps was your bad noodle dish from a cheap vendor. It looked like there were two different chefs in the kitchen. Service was sweet. Choosing the correct meal will allow you to experience some nice asian flavors.More

The food was the blandest I've had at any Asian-themed restaurant in the Baltics. The lunch special portions were very small, and the manager was visibly inconvenienced when we asked her to split the check in half. Also, a request for a reservation sent via...their website's contact system was ignored. This place used to be one I liked, but I won't be going back for a long, long while.More

It was really pleasant, although my chicken with garlic did not taste of any garlic at all. I had dessert only because I needed to feel some taste as the main dish was very bland, I’m afraid. The red rice was really nice, though. But...it always is, isn’t it? Also I did not find coconut ice-cream to be anything spectacular. My friend’s fritted banana was really tasty however, and I regretted not opting for that. It seems I’m really picky; sometimes I’m even embarrassed that I’m not able to give ‘amazing’ ratings to more places. Most seem really average to me. So my reviews are no good to anybody who can eat anything. But the service was good and the atmosphere was homey, especially I liked a snoring Frenchie on a chair in the next table, he was sweet, so I think I will try that place again anyway.More

I was celebrating my birthday in Redtaurant Riis in a company of 10. I pre-ordered some salad and fish sandwitches. My guests were ordering starter and second course from the menu. Some of my friends did not know that there is red rice and it...tastes great with beef. Everybody loved the food. At the end we also took coconut ice cream ad it was a hit! The service was excellent, even the place had only one person on duty and there were also other guets at the place in Saturday evening. At the end I got my pre-ordered salat with me in doggy bag, as there was so many good things to eat from the menu.More
