This restraurant is great. It's so cheap and the food is good. I got five appetizers to go for about thirty dollars. What's also great is that if you dine in, you can bring you...

I Love Thai Food 1/4/2012

I went to Sticky Rice with my friend for the first time for Happy Hour. We were surprise how good and inexpensive the food was. we ordered from Happy Hour menu which is only $10( Padthai noodle,chicken satay and Thai beer), My friend ordered Margarita Sampler, which we think Yuzu flavor is the best.We enjoyed food, beautiful decor, and the service. We definitely comimg back. more

Terrible service! 5/24/2010

I will not recommend anyone to go to this restaurant ever again!!! I called once and asked about the ingredients of the dish I would like to order. The girl on the phone was not helpful and rude! She did not bother to find out the ingredients and said she got to go and hung up the phone. What kind of service is that???? BAD!!!!!! Pros: aweful service Cons: good food more

Quite a disappointment 5/1/2010

I went to this place last month and the food stank (literally). Somebody order a beef stew and it literally smelled of a cow in a shed. We initially thought it to be caused due to detergent remaining on the plates, because everybody else had soapy entrees. On getting it the second time, it stank even more. The appetizers were good, but the entrees left much to be desired. Also, I struggled to get the slightest hint of alcohol in my drink. Overall, the food wasn't worth what we paid for it. This could have possibly been a one-off experience, since it was my only time at the restaurant. Pros: Appetizers Cons: Food stinks (literally) more

Usually Love it, Terrible time! 11/6/2009

Ok, so i've eaten here about 20 times, and normally i LOVE it...I nomally think that people who complain when a restaurant gets really good reviews are just people who had one bad experience and are uptight. Here is why I didn't like it, and will likely cease all future dinner parties: Pros: Atmosphere, BYOB Cons: Policy, Spiciness more

Good food, good times. 3/23/2009

This restraurant is great. It's so cheap and the food is good. I got five appetizers to go for about thirty dollars. What's also great is that if you dine in, you can bring your own beer or wine which is different for sure. Pros: Food, BYOB. Cons: None. more

Overpriced Thai 12/8/2008

The Lower East Side is a great neighborhood to live and work, but there is a lack of healthy and yummy food for lunch. It is difficult to find a meal under $15 and I ask myself what am I paying for?! To go cartons? - maybe.... Pros: Could be cute in Summer Cons: Bad Service and Overall Careless more

yelled at 9/6/2008

apparently they differentiate their weekday staff vs friday staff, b/c i called to make a reservation for friday at 830pm on tuesday and called again on wednesday to add one more person to my party, and on friday 2hrs before my reservation, someone at the restaurant called to tell me that they should've never made me the 830 reservation and apparently that they only do 8 or 10pm and their weekday staff had made a mistake. and then the hostess made it very clear to me that i needed to be out by 10 and i replied saying I think that should be ok. but the hostess insisted on saying no we need you to be out by 10. and i replied again i think that should be doable but i am being told this now. and then the hostess got irritated and said we don't want any problem tonight so i am going to cancel your reservation and hung up on the call. more

avoid friday 9/6/2008

the first time i went there, it was a really enjoyable experience. the food is pretty good. the second time i made it for friday night which i guess is pretty busy time for them, the hostess was pretty rude. Pros: great value Cons: bad service more

Cute, cheap, no A/C 8/30/2008

Went here on a Monday night with a friend, and it's a small restaurant, but nicely decorated. I don't know if they just don't have A/C or if it wasn't strong b/c it was a little sticky (no pun intended) and humid inside. We started with the Mango Flower Dumplings which were amazing. I would go back simply to eat these again. For entrees we got the Cashew Chicken and the Spicy Basil Noodles, both of which I would recommend. It's a cute, cheap spot, perfect for a first date or a trendy-ish dinner with a friend. Pros: not expensive, good food Cons: no A/C, small space more

Great value for money and tasty 8/18/2008

Liked the funky decor and enjoyed sitting in one of the booths (although they're smaller than they look!). Had the spicy salmon lunch box which had a delicious tomato sauce which tasted like an italian and thai fusion. Service was a little slow but we were in no hurry on a lazy Sunday. $26 including tip for lunch and sodas for two - great value. Pros: Good value, tasty, comfy, decor Cons: Window sign could do with smartening up! more

good food, cute place 6/30/2008

This place is cute, nicely decorated and good for a date or small group of friends. We were here for dinner and we all liked our food. It was a step up from your normal neighborhood Thai with some dishes you wont see everywhere. The sizable list of daily specials shows culinary effort as well. The down side was the server, who seemed a little over his head and careless at the same time: my friend ordered a shrimp salad and got a larger, more expensive shrimp stir-fry instead. The service was slow throughout our meal and while waiting for our check we realized our server was lounging at another table and chatting. Still, I will assume this is an exception and will come back another time. Pros: food, homey yet not class-less atmosphere Cons: monday night server more

good cheap food, not so great with large reservations 5/24/2008

I threw my boyfriend a surprise party here with around 25 people. I made the reservation ahead of time for 20 but said there could be as many as 25. They said that would be fine; they could definitely fit 25 people. So all 25 people arrived and we were crammed into one large table. We didn't fit. Some people found seating at the bar and we tried to squeeze everybody else into the bench side of the table. It was uncomfortable, but it ended up working out, even though some of the party wasn't at the dinner table. more

Great service, delicious food, BYOB, low price = Very Good Times 3/23/2008

I recently organized a group dinner at Sticky Rice. I had made reservations for 6 originally, but had to change to 7. The reservationist was very sweet about the change, even though we ended up having just 6 people at dinner. My friends had arrived early but were seated already in the back corner table, the best seat in the house, which is almost unheard of in NY. Since this was a BYOB, we had brought 5 bottles of wine, and was pleasantly surprised to find out that there was no corkage fee. The servers were very helpful with selecting dishes, patiently going over several dishes in detail until we made our choices. Every dish we orderd was delicious, and the servers were super nice. They never rushed us, and everyone at dinner had such a great time. And the best part of it was that the total bill (we had ordered several appetizers and desserts, in addition to our entrees) came out to less than $95 for all six of us!!! We gladly left a huge tip and a huge smile. Oh, and the lolipops with three different flavors at the bar was a great way to follow up the yummy dessert. Sicky Rice, I'm sold. I will definitely be back! more

DO NOT GO if you have a group!!!! 2/24/2008

Well I should've just cancelled going there altogether after they called me within DAYS of my reservation-- to say that their receptionist screwed up and booked TWO 10ppl. appointments at 8:00 and asked if our party could be split up into two booths next to each other each seating 5ppl. Since I'd had the reservation for over a week I was really miffed but whatever-- we'd work it out, we'd made plans for places in the area, etc etc... Pros: Cheap food. BYOB was the ONLY winner at this place Cons: Terrible at book-keeping, Were seated 30 minutes after reservation, over-run staff, HORRIBLE for groups more

You Can Do Better 2/24/2008

They called days before our reservation to say the hostess had screwed up and we wouldn't all be able to sit together. We had reservations for a large party but had to wait nearly a half hour for our two booths. (They had to kick people out for sitting too long drinking their own bottles of wine.) They were nice enough, but not very good at enforcing their 2 hour sitting rule. I ordered the tofu steak but when it came it was REALLY spicy. The waiter told me panang sauce is a curry and he'd have them remake the steak without the spiciness. But when it came back out it looked and tasted EXACTLY the same. It also didn't match the menu description AT ALL (there were no mushrooms but lots of baby corn.) They took it off the bill and offered to make me something else, but by then everyone was done eating. Not a lot of organization at this place. Maybe better for parties of two, but even then you're relying on people who aren't expert English speakers and the miscommunication can lead to a reeeeally disappointing experience. more
