Rice & Noodles Thai Gourmet Restaurant Review

: Run by a young man with a restaurant-owning Thai mother, everything should be in place for a smashing success. Instead, the kitchen missteps even with the basics. The Crying Tiger is a grilled beef salad that calls for loads of crushed chilies and plenty of chopped cilantro, for example; it was bland and uninteresting. The so-called crispy duck entrée swam in a pond of pan juices. But since the nearest Thai restaurant is miles down the road, you can stop in for a Thai break when the mood strikes. Besides, the prices are reasonable, making this a good spot for family eating.
