Very disappointed in this establishment and management . We have been coming here for years with my family, sometimes 4/5 times a month. At times there would be a group of us when we needed space and we requested the table with a lazy Susan. They denied to accommodate us, they were also very rude, which was surprising because we...

First, I am sorry for your bad experience with us. Second, we apologize for taking so long to respond, we just got on Trip Advisor. Our restaurant’s policy is to have a minimum of 10 people or have a reservation to open the private room, the room with one of the lazy susans. Maybe we did not communicate this correctly.... More

I'm sure some people enjoy Rice Bowl for either the nice atmosphere or the large portion size. Unfortunately their food is a bit too greasy and a bit too sweet for my taste. There's no subtlety.

This was one of the worse Asian meals I have eaten. Lunch special was bland, over cooked, cafeteria type of food. I will never eat here again.

Where do I begin....the servers are soooo rude. You get charged for water and refills even if you order alot of food. The servers make you feel like you're an inconvenience to them of you ask for something or ask a question. The food is ok and the prices are reasonable,but with bad service....why would anyone want to go back?
