I'm a regular at Rice Restaurant. The food is great and the staff and chefs are very friendly. Authentic Indonesian food. A must visit when you're in Brunswick Heads.

Terrible service. One entree came out and at least 20 mins later the other two came out, but only after we had to go up to ask, and even then the waitress said she'd ask the chef but didn't come and update us. Mains were nothing to write home about and the vegan curry had a piece of chicken in... More

Among the various choices that are available in Brunswick Heads, we often find ourselves coming back to Rice time and again...affordable and never disappoints with fresh authentic asian flavours. Vegetarian and non-vegetarian options abound..try the beef rang dang

Enjoyed our curries but the servings were very small and not much in them for a main meal and cost $30 each. It's charging upscale prices for a quite ordinary type of restaurant and small serves.

Have eaten here a few of times over the last few years and have tried enough dishes to steer clear of this place! Every time, the food has been too salty and it appears the owner is stuck in a rut with the dated menu and in need of some inspiration. Average service, salty food, dim interior and high prices...

Nice ambience with quick service but despite a promising menu the entree dishes failed somewhat. My standards were questionable after 6 or 7 (who's counting) apple ciders at the Brunswick Hotel next door. So with alcohol induced munchies we were looking for some taste bud stimulation. The peanut satay held no evidence of peanut. The soft crab shell, whilst presented... More

Excellent selection of takeaway in a dinner box (includes rice) just $15. Great flavored. We had beef which has a lovely lemongrass flavor and soft meat also the pad Thai is fantastic, also $15. A very affordable dinner and the park opposite has picnic tables and the best view.

Great food that is freshly prepared, all natural ingredients and prepared on site. Try the Gato Gato it's awesome. This is our favourite restaurant to eat at when we stay at the pub. It's very close by, well priced and the food is fresh and delicious always and the service is good too.
