I was very pleased with the diverse and plentiful options in the menu, there was lots of gluten free and vegetarian options to choose from. I ordered the mixed platter as a starter which was served quickly and was very filling. The penang curry was...fresh and very rich in flavour. The level of spice was perfect and the presentation of the dishes was excellent and added to the enjoyment of my meals. Definitely the best authentic Thai food I’ve had.More

This was our third visit to Rice Thai. The food was amazing again. I loved the spicy Tom Yum soup and crispy sea bass (Chu Chee). There were lots of gluten free vegan options available for my daughter too (almost all dishes can be adapted,...just ask the waitress). Service was excellent, staff are friendly and attentive. Best Thai in Bedford, I highly recommend.More

We enjoyed our meal at Rice Thai last night. The food was delicious! I particularly enjoyed the Moo Gob Krappow (pok belly) and Som Tam (spicy papaya salad). There are also plenty of gluten free and vegan choices. Service was excellent, staff are friendly, attentive...and great fun. I highly recommend and will definitely return, thank you for a very nice evening.More

We really wanted to enjoy our Thai meal here. We used to go when the old owners had it and it was a very special place with faultless food. We love Thai food and have since been going to another Thai in Bedford which has...gone downhill so we thought we'd go back here - What a mistake! The starters were ok, nothing special but edible enough but the main food looked very insipid when it arrived and the chicken, well it didn't even look like chicken. To be honest it was very white, very flat and thin and I was glad I'd chosen a vegetable dish. Mine was tasteless and the other people in my party who had chicken have both had upset stomachs through the night! So this is the last place we will eat at and we wouldn't recommend it either. Shockingly bad!More

The chicken served in this place has a lot to be desired.insiped dishes with not much flavour and whilst you eat ,people stand and watch when waiting for their takeaway. Over priced for the quality of food and when i got home i had a...terrible time on the toilet. Would not recommend this place to anyone Most people that dine here had shorts and smelly trainers on, there is no class here whatsoever, more like a cafe than a nicehh restaurant. In my opinion it was a complete waste of money and will never go back.More

We visited on a Thursday night, when they have a special banquet menu, plenty of choice for starters and mains, and a few for desserts. All the staff were very friendly and I am pleased to say wearing masks. Lovely decor and toilets spotlessly clean....All our food tempura King prawns and pork satay to begin with, duck pad Thai and chicken and cashew nut stir fry were hot and plentiful as well as very tasty. Very goid value at £19.99 each, they also offer 25% off if you pick up a take away order, or if you eat early bird. Will definitely return thank you for a very nice evening, we felt very safe.More

This was our third time at Rice Thai tonight. Once again if we were to rate the food and service at Rice Thai from 1 to 10, we wouldn't hesitate to give them a 10 for both. The mixed starter for 2 was excellent and...tasty. The staff are always so friendly and accomadating. We ordered the set menu for 2. Compliments to the chef, everything from the beef to the prawns were cooked perfectly. I can't find any fault in the food or service. Good sized portions which will leave you very satisfied without feeling to full. Rice Thai is certainly one of three great Thai restaurants in Bedford.More
