Quality take out food in East rock section of new haven. I almost always go with the drunken noodles with shrimp or chicken. You can also get it with duck if you want. You can select your level of spice as well 1-5. Definitely recommend doing take out or uber eats from here.

I have heard horror stories about the service...but our experience was quite decent.Ordered the soft shell crab dish and a prawn dish. Was slightly pricey when compared to other thai places, but good portion size.It is in one corner of state st, so a bit hard to get there

Ok, I ordered Pad Thai, which I absolutely love and have had at many different restaurants in many different states. I started eating and it was actually pretty good, and then I saw it! I thought at first it was a piece of spice, so I pulled out my glasses. Really, really wish I hadn't. It was a small cock... More

I went to Rice Pot with a friend and her baby for a late lunch. Rice Pot offers a selection of lunch specials that are about $9. The food arrived quickly and hot. I had the vegetarian curry option and it was great!

Very good food made with fresh ingredients. We were a party of four getting three different dishes. All displayed fresh, high quality and hand cut veggies and meats prepared with respect for each ingredient.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who frequents this place. I decided to finally try it, and I was not disappointed! The server was friendly, the food came out fast, and it was delicious. I had the same experience with take out.

The food was very good; but it's a very small restaurant. We were in a larger group and, although I called them in advance and was told we would get a table for 12, when we got there, we were seated as 7 at one table and 3 at the other table - awkward for us! The server said there... More

Found this spot on the way out of town one day and really enjoyed the meal. It wasn't "wow" food, but it was quite good. Lunch Box was $10. Seating is really really old and worn out, not in a cool, scuffed up way, but in the "this spring is poking me in the butt" kind of way. Definitely worth... More
