I visited the Rice Bowl for a little nostalgia. I've eaten at the Rice Bowl since 2006 when I started college. It is still affordable, fast and delicious. The food has always been cooked fresh and quickly. The service is second to none and makes for an enjoyable option for Chinese food.

My wife saw that the Rice Bowl had good reviews. The reviews are accurate. The building is a conversion from some kind of burger joint in the past. The food is very good, and the prices are very competitive. There is no difference between lunch and supper prices. Our waitress was very cordial and attentive. The food arrived faster than... More

This place has been open ever since I was in medical school in 1998. My roommates and I would order take out three times a week after hitting the gym and before studying in the Library. I visit Rice Bowl every visit to Omaha and get the Imperial Chicken. I do this at least five times a year. Everyone I... More

It's good not great. You can get the family size which is huge. Egg rolls and dumplings are pretty decent. Very small place to dine. More of a to go place.

Got Chicken Chow Mein, Hunan Chicken and Kung Pao chicken, listed as spicy on their menu. Not a single one had any taste, just bland and the chicken wasn't even cooked well. To add salt to the injury( there was none in the food) I found hair in one of the boxes. Way to ruin your appetite!!

My family has loved Rice Bowl for years. Wait staff will always know your favorite dish and drink. The hot and sour soup is hands down the best anywhere. Food is reasonable and always quick and delicious. Don't forget to ask for a free frequent diner card, it is worth a free entree when full!

Hey what can I say, the cops eat here. Omaha's best orange chicken, Omahas best dumplings. You can't go wrong at the Rice bowl. The only thing that's weird is their fried rice is a little strange, but I can overlook that for the quality and tastiness of their orange chicken.
