This place seems to be having a bit of trouble getting off the ground. It's totally empty every time I've gone by, so I wanted to submit this review to let everyone know that it's good, cheap and definitely worth a try.
We needed to grab a quick dinner close to campus and we were sick of the overpriced, crappy food on campus and in the village so we decided to hop on the 99 for a quick trip to Rice Bar.
For those of you who are unsure what "Hong Kong style fast food" means, it is basically a "meat on rice" restaurant. That is indeed exactly what you will find in HK. You pick your meat (BBQ pork, soya chicken, hainanese chicken, pork ribs etc) and it comes on rice with some sauce and some token vegetables. They also have some combo plates and curries, but it is all very basic. I also realize that this concept will not appeal to everyone, even though we think it's great.
I ordered BBQ pork and soya chicken combo, she ordered short ribs. All of the meats tasted really good, with generous helpings. The rice was plentiful and tasty as well. We devoured our meals in no time.
The interior (formerly Think!, a cafe) is really bright and comfy, but being the only people in the restaurant never does very good things to the atmosphere. I'd like to see what it's like with a fuller house.
In terms of service, I give it 3 to be neutral because it's a take-out style restaurant.
They were giving 30% off to students during their first month. With that discount, the total came to just under $10, and because it's take-out style you probably don't really need to tip. I would definitely go back sometime and recommend you to give it a try, because at the rate it's going now with no customers, it might not last too long.
