amazing place for the great price – So many choices for you to pick! The sushi is my favorite. The cocktail menu here is fun and good sized. One of my favorite restaurants to go with my friends.

love this place. great sushi. great price – I eat at Spice & Rice in Inman Square regularly. The sushi is delicious. Its always very fresh and always made to order. The chef will even make your sushi with brown rice if you ask.

There other dishes are great too and their lunch box combo couldn't be a better deal. They have a very fun drink menu as well.

It's minor but they always have fresh flowers (usually orchids) all over the restaurant... its beautiful. The music, on the other hand, is completely random.

The staff has always been nice and friendly. One of my favorite Asian restaurants in Cambridge.

take 50 minute to get your food – I recommend you take out or eat in at the restaurant. drunken noodle is good, but some sushi had too much rice, and delivery services is always bad. it usually takes about 50 minute to get your food, so you'll get dry noodle. if you eat in at the restaurant, recommend you a thick noodle dishes than thin noodle.

Tasty takeout – The thai dishes are high quality for a takeout night. Large enough portions for lunch the next day too!

This eclectic pan-Asian restaurant features an adventurous mix of Thai, Korean, and Japanese dishes. The eatery?s ultra-modern decor is like a nightclub with its vibrant colors, funky dangling lights, porthole windows, gleaming tiles and cushy booths. The hip sushi bar serves colorful house drinks like the fruity ?Woo Woo,? a mix of cranberry juice, peach schnapps and vodka. The sushi selections sparkle including the Spice & Rice Maki, a salmon, crab and avocado roll with black, red and green fish eggs. Thai standouts are the Randang Curry: chicken, bell peppers and carrots in a spicy sweet coconut sauce; and the Crispy Pad Thai: shrimp, chicken, and egg with crispy fried rice noodles. Off the Korean menu, try the Tofu Bi Bim Bab, crispy tofu marinated in red sauce with seasoned vegetables. Also good is Shrimp In The Pan, which is fish served over a fire in bubbling brown sauce with glass noodles and vegetables. End the meal with their radiant green tapioca pudding served elegantly in a martini glass.

Thai to try – Spice & Rice restaurant is my go-to for Thai. The creamy sauce of the Chicken Randang Curry is balanced in spiced heat and coconut sweetness. Tender chicken slices mingle with carrots, bell peppers, onions and mushrooms. A twist on the traditional is Crispy Pad Thai. The rice noodles are fried crisp and mixed with the usual ingredients of shrimp, chicken, egg, peanuts, bean sprouts and scallions. Sips of Riesling cool the curry heat and cut through the oil of the Pad Thai. They make the absolute best shumai! Not only are they much larger than the usual ones restaurants just buy in bulk and steam up, they are very generous with the shrimp. The wonton soup is my new soup-o-comfort. Large wontons soak in a savory broth that's craveable on a weekly basis.

mediocre food for a good price – I went for a late lunch on a Sunday.

Maki rolls compared to other sushi restaurants are much smaller and the sushi didn't seem very fresh or made with care. In fact the sushi was not very good at all. The entrees were good and the portions were not huge but not small. The price is good. The pad thai could have been better, it's not like Brown Sugar or Dok Boa. The salad needed more ingredients other than two pieces of cucumber and one egg. I'd say try the place and make your own decision. For me, I'd rather pay more and eat somewhere else.

appitizer , anyone? – Well I gotta say there are a lot of better Thai places and Korean places to eat at; but few that deliver.

The Bulgogi was completely americanized; ie many more veggies than marinated beef than the menu suggests. The sushi wasn't bad, but also left something to be desired. The only thing good was the appetizers, and they screwed that up. Somehow I ended up with 6 pieces of fried tofu instead of "pan fried meat dumplings". Spice and rice leaves a lot to be desired.

Excellent Food Great Customer Service! – Highly recommended!! This place is literally located in Inman sq which is walkable from Central sq. Only takes about 10-15 mins walking from the red line (Central sq). You should check this place out if you happen to be in that area. Pretty sure that you won't be disapointed. Variety of food; Japanese, Korean and Thai which are typically authentic.Not to mention, they do delivery and take out order which could be easily made by both over the phone or online. Isn't it FANTABULOUS?!! :-D
