I'm actually very impressed with Rice N Roll, which I wouldn't have expected looking from the outside.But hey, Yelp world, take a chance and walk inside, and you'll immediately regret your snap judgment. They make use of what may be a small space to comfortably and pleasantly seat their customers.I actually came with my family to order take out, but they were extremely friendly and allowed us to sit while we waited, and even brought us a couple pots of tea to enjoy. They were nice and chatted to us a bit, all while helpfully serving other customers around the restaurant.The food is really good. Yeah, I've had better, but boy, have I had worse. Trust rice and roll and you'll see, it's a friendly, tasty, well-priced, and enjoyable.

I was told that the best Chinese restaurants are were the clientele is predominantly Chinese, and in general, I do believe this to be true, but Rice N Roll is a great place with a high return of regular customers and they are always busy during the lunch hours. Its a family style place where they know their customers by name.I always order the General Tsao Chicken lunch special with chow mein and egg roll.The price is low and the food is QUALITY!!!! Not only is the food "quality" but they give you a whole lot of food for the price!I highly recommend this place.The only gripe I have about this place is that there's really no parking.........

I was in the mood for food. Literally any type of food. I worked all day today with only a single bean burrito in my stomach. I'm starving! I'm vegetarian and mostly vegan, so this place sounded amazing! I placed my order online. I expected delay because of the free delivery and the fact that I ordered online, but I was prepared for the wait. All I wanted was a nice night in filled with Netflix and food at my door, but after an hour and forty minutes of waiting for food I decided to call and ask what's up. So, I ordered online at 6:40 and called at 8:20. The lady on the phone said that they received my order at 7:40, which isn't very cool, but either way it's still been 40 minutes AND she said that it would probably be another hour until I got my food. You're going to expect me to wait 3 hours and not even offer me anything for free just to save face?Now I'm still hungry as I sit here complaining on Yelp about my bad experience! I know what it's like to work in a restaurant, I literally spent all day doing that. I'm sensitive to the rush and all the crazy demands people expect you to jump for, but really guys? Come on! Not gonna try this place again.

So so good! Great service! Food is always piping hot and portions are great too! They deliver which is a plus, and when you order 2 main courses you get a free fried rice or chow mein! They renovated the inside so it's much brighter but I always take my food to go!

We've found our local Chinese spot - hooray! The food is delectable, and not too greasy or heavy, but, I suppose, more of a 'California Chinese,' if you catch my drift. The walnut prawns were delicious and the fried rice perfect; while we wouldn't necessarily eat there (one word: why?), it's perfect for pick-up or delivery.

Best place to get food delivered in Pacifica!!! They even delivery to the back of the valley! Their meatless dishes are some if my favorite in the area. I typically order the meatless kung pao chicken and walnut meatless prawns.

I found my replacement for Paradise in South City!Hunan Egg Plant - This is a must order. The best eggplant dish I've ever had or at least for sure the best Asian eggplant dish. The texture was perfect, soft but with a nice springy pop to it, which is how egg plant should be. Sweet, garlicky, and not too spicy. The crunch for the onions and peppers are nice textural additions but their sweetness get absorbed nicely (along with the hunan sauce) to make this an "order everytime because its so good and you cant fail ordering this" sort of dish to me.Salted Fish Fried Rice - The best fried rice (took over Number 1 and would match Paradise's if paradise renewed its lease for westborough). Another can't fail dish/default order when I come here, the fish they use has the right amount of salty umami flavors to really infuse the rice with that salty fishy goodness. For salted fish fried rice, they actually put a good amount of fish which is awesome! They cut the chicken up into tinier pieces than Paradise used to do, which creates a more even distribution. The rice itself is perfect, not too dry, not too steamy. They give you a heaping amount too, but this dish was so good we finished it as well.Walnut Prawns - standard walnut prawns. crispy and sweet, not too mayonaisse-y, with a hint of citrus. Not the best I've had but still delicious. The portion is pretty generous as I did not expect that many prawns.Korean Fried Chicken - sweet, peppery, 5 spicey. A bit different from the batter fried korean wings I would get in socal. This is kind of similar to the dry fried chicken from San Tung in the caramelized glazy way, but with a spicier peppery kicker.The service here is great. I want to try more things on the menu, but I feel like I will always order the egg plant n fish fried rice because they are the best I've had. I also have had the Basil Lamb here (as left overs from family) and their lamb is cooked perfectly and does not taste very gamey at all. The food here is great and I am glad I don't have to drive far in search for awesome Chinese food in the penninsula.

Love this place! Definitely a "hole in the wall" type restaurant but what they lack in space they make up for with their incredible food. I recommend the General Tsao chicken or for a lighter option I LOVE the chicken lettuce wraps. Excellent service and they have brown rice!! Great place all around.

Pros: price, vegetarian food, portions sizesCons: parkinggreat! My mother is a vegetarian, so I choose this place for her. It was great! When we walked in, there wad no other customers, so we were a little skeptical about the food, but they have much more take out and delivery business because the phone were ringing nonstop. After we ordered, other customers arrived so I dont thimk they have much down time. The waiter was super friendly and ready to have a conversation anytime. We ordered 2 appetizers: fried tofu and fried vegetable wonton. the fried tofu was a little bland, but I mean..its tofu. The fried vegetable wonton was just literally fried wonton skin. We were expecting some veggies, but it still tasted good. We also got, kung pow meatless chicken, Singapore rice noodles w/o meat or shrimp, korean fried chicken wings, and yang chow fried rice. All was so yummy!

We ordered several entrees and enjoyed them all! The veggie spring rolls were perfect. The dry sauteed green beans were crispy with just the right amount of spice (we ordered medium). The Garlic Eggplant was firm and quite tasty. The vegetable delight had a light sauce that did not over power the vegetables, which were very lightly cooked and full of flavor. My husband got General Tso's Tofu and Vegetable fried rice and declared both to be excellent.We had our food delivered and it was fresh and hot when it arrived, even though it took a bit longer than expected.

Wow, bland, bland, weirdly flavored greasy food. What's with the 4 star reviews guys?! I realize Pacifica is ridiculously lacking for ANY good restaurant options, but for the sake of your fellow yelpers, don't exaggerate review scores out of gratitude for just truly mediocre food. Sorry, even the egg rolls and pork fried rice were bad. How is that possible?! The fried rice had a flavor similar to the smell of dirty dishes or old bad refrigeration. Ewwwww. And the beef with broccoli was watery! No garlic flavor at all! Horrible!Everything went in the trash along with the $30 I spent on the food. Delivery at dinner time took 1 1/2 hours. Delivery guy was friendly. I guess that counts for one star. Do yourself a favor and drive to the city for good Chinese. At least it will be time and money well spent. China First on Clement is pretty good.

The food was okay. I've had better Chinese food. The food was very fresh, not so greasy. I wouldn't get the spring roll the next time I go. The tea needed honey for sweetening. No beer or wine. Service was okay. There are only a few people working at this small restaurant. The best thing about Rice N Roll is that they deliver for free!

Food is good but service is awful especially their delivery service. Food is cooked fast and tasty. The dining area is not very big so expect a wait. Because of this people order take out or delivery. Expect delivery times from 1.5hrs to 2hrs. Even for the simplest items it will take that long to deliver. Your better off picking up your food.

Should haven known better when the hubby wanted to try this place. Walked in and it's pretty nice and clean. Also they don't even have chopsticks. You have to ask for them and the chopsticks are from around the corner (Sushi 8). This Chinese place caters more to non Chinese people. They are busy with lots of to go orders. Pick up and Delivery. The whole time, my hubby and I were the only Chinese people there.They have a huge selection of stuff.Price and Portion was goodAvocado Eggrolls-Weird taste. More like guacamole fried in eggroll wrapper.Sizzling Rice Soup-good flavor, but way too much meat. And the pieces were too big.Crispy Beef-this was not bad.Green Onion Pancake-Good flavor, but too doughyKorean Chicken Wings-I did not like the after tasteI can see why alot of people like it here, but for me being Chinese......yah pass.Service was good.

Vegan and vegetarian heaven! They offer all kinds of fake meat and veggie entrees. Perfect for when you have a craving for Chinese. A little greasy but hey, can't be perfect. Also they offer brown rice which is a huge plus. Once dining in they gave me a free egg roll just because. Def going to be a regular here.

Portions are HUGE!!! Great place for vegetarians and vegans because of their lengthy "meatless" and "vegetable" menu sections. There was only one waiter serving 8 tables, answering the phone calls, cleaning up, etc., basically everything and he got it all done! The prices are very cheap when you factor in how huge the portions are.

It was 6pm on a Saturday night and we were starving. My wife was craving Chinese food so we opted for Rice and Roll. We've had it a few times in the past and each time it was mediocre at best but it was quick, close, convenient and... Chinese!Anywho, we placed our order by phone and the first red flag should have been when we were told it would be ready for pick up in 5 minutes. What? Really? How are you going to cook 5 full entrees and package them up all in 5 minutes? I hopped in the car, sped over there, picked up the food (which did appear to be hot) and took it home.Well, we open up the food and realize why it was both quick and piping hot...it appeared to have been microwaved. Our chicken dishes were hot on the outside and very tough on the inside. Very overlooked and a tell-tale sign off microwave reheating. The vegetable delight dish tasted odd-- nothing but a bunch of undercooked vegetables in some sort of watery sauce.We ended up throwing away the food with a pledge to continue our hunt for a good, ole fashioned, Chinese take out place in the area!

I received a $10 Seamless gift certificate at a Yelp event and used it to get delivery during a particularly busy day at work. My order was dropped off as close as the delivery guy could get through security (delivery usually calls me to meet them outside) and was still piping hot when it arrived.In order to use up the gift certificate I got way too much food. The egg rolls were stuffed and crispy. The Mongolian Beef was bland and consisted of chewy beef and too many onions. The Orange Chicken had a strong orange flavor but barely a spice to it, they just dumped chilies on top. It wasn't the greatest but I imagine this is the type of place I need to determine what they do best.

Been waiting for this place to reopen ever since my girlfriend and I had craving for chicken wings. How can you make chicken this tender and good! The only other place I've had chicken this tender is from Sang Tung, but unlike the chicken from that place which is sweet and covered in honey, the wings here are more on the spicy side. In my opinion they could use a little more kick, but then again, doing that might actually lose the succulent flavor that it has. Overall I'd say the flavor and spice balance is just right. Bye bye Wingstop, this is my new go to chicken wings place that's nearby
NOW OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!!
I JUST ORDERED. SO GLAD THEY ARE BACK UP AND RUNNING!

Ask for Jamie, she really knows the menu.I go for the mu shu pork and the korean-style chicken wings. I haven't had anything here that I didn't like.The ambient music is funny, like remixes of movie soundtracks like lion king and stuff.Parking is tough, so park around back or take advantage of their fast delviery service.

I was watching Breaking Bad the other night when I started to get hungry. Chinese food sounded good, so I looked up this place and ordered some delivery, because it was the crawlspace episode, and I couldn't look away. Anyways, the food got to my house, but when I handed the guy the money he didn't hand me back all my change. Guess he was afraid I wouldn't tip him, and you know what I don't blame him I'm poor as hell. Still I didn't like it, I really was planning on tipping him. That was pretty minor though. The food was pretty delicious, and about as good as Chinese delivery as you can get. The Orange Chicken made me climax.

Because I haven't found a good Chinese food place that will deliver since Lucky Pot closed, I really wanted to like this place. I placed my order on line, and the guy arrived in about 30 minutes - quite fast, I thought. However, things went downhill from there. I live in an apartment building, and I gave very specific instructions on what to do at the door: look for my name on the directory at the door, and use the house phone to be buzzed in. The delivery guy called from his cell, which was NOT going to work. I instructed him again what he needed to do... and nothing happened. My phone never rang again. 5 minutes later, with visions of my dinner driving away, I gave in and went to the door. (It's not far, about a block away and 3 floors down, but the whole idea of delivery is to have food delivered, right?) Once there, I showed him what to do (in case there is a next time), but all I got was a blank stare. Sigh.So on to the food. I ordered Shrimp with Snow Peas, Veg Spring Rolls, and Mango Shrimp Salad. The first two dishes were fine, if bland. Now, I have to admit that I've only had a mango shrimp salad at one other place (Eric's on Church St. in Noe Valley), and it was a sublime plate of fresh, ripe mango, tender shrimp and cilantro... what I received was not sublime. The shrimp were barely recognizable, as everything was covered in a thick coat of plain mayonnaise. The small cubes of mango were, for the most part, not ripe. Those were on top a bed of unappetizing, white iceberg lettuce. The only green was the watercress, and that was wilted. I tried to add some flavor to salvage it, adding some stuff I have on hand... but nothing helped. I finally picked out the mango and shrimp, threw it in a colander and rinsed it all off in the sink. The rest will go in the trash.Maybe I ordered the wrong things? I may try again based on all of the positive reviews, but it will be a while before I spend any money here.

I found my orders are ready within 10 minutes, even when I order 2 lunch specials which consist of egg rolls, soup, fried rice, and meat dish. I don't know how they work so fast!In general the food is great. My favorite are the chicken fried rice and cashew chicken.The dishes that include fried meat + heavy sticky sweet sauce aren't my favorite. But then, they're not healthy for you so don't order it!This place is a little bit too convenient when I'm too lazy to cook.

I stumbled upon this place as I was driving and there was a delicious aroma in the air, had to check it out!They offer a variety of items (some you may have seen at others) and its awesome they have meatless items for the boyfriend :) He loves the garlic eggplant with added meatless chicken!The beef with tofu was my usual during the lunch special but then i kept trying other things and bam i have no idea how to pick now.I'm glad they are doing well and of course they will continue to see me ordering!

The husband and I stopped in on a Friday evening. We were greeted and offered a menu by the friendly host. We settled on veggie chow fun and an order of green onion pancakes. Approximately $11 and a short 15 minutes later, we were on our way with the car smelling of tasty, green onion pancakes. The pancakes did not disappoint! They were crunchy yet chewy, onion-y, and nicely seasoned. It was a pretty good portion for just $3.95. The chow fun had a generous helping of veggies, too. I can't say how often I've ordered a "veggie" version of a dish, just to be let down by the lack thereof. This was not the case at Rice n Roll. Good food and good service in one place? Why yes, thank you! Oh, and thanks to the guy who rang us up. The minimum charge to use your card is $15 but he let us pay anyway. We'll be back to try other menu items.

May be I went on an off day... But the food was disappointing. We ordered Veggie Pot stickers, Hunan Kung Pao Tofu and Salt and Pepper Tofu. We asked for the Kung Pao Tofu to be extremely Spicy and Salt and Pepper Tofu to be Spicy and both of them tasted bland....not mild... just bland.Looking at the reviews, my expectations were higher. The one positive and the one that earned most of the stars is their service. The service was very impressive.

My last review was negative. Since then I have ordered several times to make sure my original review was a fluke or not. The food quality has improved. While I like some entrees better than others, by and large this is a decent place for good but fast Chinese food. Once in a while the driver is delayed (but always apologizes) but that occurs usually during the heavy dinner hours.They are also using a new online service to place orders online. I had one negative experience where they delivered at the wrong time/wrong day (advance order). They were very apologetic and the problem has not been repeated.

Getting a delivery from Pacifica instead of to it is charming in its own way, but getting good food on New Year's Day is flat out terrific. We intend on visiting the restaurant, but for now, eating in our pj's is perfect.The food is fresh and tastes like it is carefully made (not churned out of an assembly line). They have several lamb dishes as well as a decent selection of pseudo-meat (don't turn your nose up; it can be really good) and vegetable dishes.As an aside, their online order system (http://beyondmenu.com) looks a little retro, but it does exactly what one needs without fuss or bother.

I have been ordering from Rice N Roll for two years now and still love this place! It is storming out today and when I placed my order they did inform me the wait would be about an hour and a half due to the high volume of orders (very understandable with the weather). Not minding the wait I was pleasantly surprised when they arrived an hour later. The staff are always pleasant and friendly. I have yet to eat there in person, but will have to one of these days.I highly recommend this restaurant! The food has always be delicious and arrived on time if not earlier.

Love the food, very tasty. I've ordered from here several times, there have been multiple occations where they've screwed up my order. But, since the food is good, I'll give them a pass. You're pretty much safe with anything that's on the menu.Today I went in with my wife and kids. We ordered the vegetable delight, shrimp fried rice, and sweet and sour chicken. They got 2 out of the 3 on this order. Instead of the sweet and sour we got an orange chicken. At first I was pissed, but instead we decided to try it anyways. After inhaling the orange chicken, my wife and I decided that Rice n Roll make by far the best orange chicken. The fried rice and vegetable were delicious too. My kids ate eveything and didn't complain about a thing.The reason why I rate Rice n Roll 4 stars is because since I've started coming here, they've rarely ever gotten my order correct. Plus, to sit and eat in the restaurant, you need two things, a thick coat and a warm cap because that place is cold!I will definitely return to Rice n Roll because the food is AWSOME!

Okay, the owners need to tone down their delivery person. He's a douche.The food's not too bad here, and it's close, so it's pretty fast.We ordered with Eat24Hours and *always* leave a decent tip using the Eat24Hours system.This last order they delivery dude basically stood at the door demanding my wife give him a tip. We told him several times that we already added it to the order but he kept insisting that we didn't. He didn't have a copy of the receipt, so we basically told him to GTFO. We double-checked on Eat24Hours and we DID have a tip added on, so the delivery guy was a major jackass.The only thing is I wish I could take back the tip off Eat24Hours.

By far the BEST Chinese restaurant I've ever been to. Andy, our waiter, was absolutely amazing. He took my party of 11 (that was split into four separate checks) and made it seem like I was the only person he was waiting on. He remembered my name and addressed me accordingly. Then the food came out! Perfect. Satisfying. Excellent. We ordered Orange Chicken, Mandarin Chicken, Mango Shrimp Fried Rice and Pork Chow Mien. It was a lot of food but all hot and fresh. My family enjoyed our time, Andy made it special. 49ers beat the Phins and dinner was perfect!!!

We have a few favorites that we order regularly:~basil, eggplant with chicken and prawns (delicious combination with the basil)~fried chicken wing appetizer (an order of 10 pieces is never enough)~hunan crispy dragon beef (yum-O!)They have a good selection of vegetarian dishes.Service has always been great and the staff is very friendly.

Ordered online from here a few nights ago and it was decent. Delivery was quick! I'm a huge sucker for honey walnut prawns, and theirs were delicious. I also ordered some crab rangoons, and they weren't the best I've ever had, but certainly not the worst either! Would order again from here.

Seriously yummy vegetarian options (sesame soy chicken is my go-to)! My husband likes the meat options too, but I can't really vouch for them myself.Oh- and the hot & sour soup hits the spot! (I get it mild though- I am afraid of spice!)I love the on-line ordering + delivery. This is lazy person heaven with a fortune cookie on top!

Our go to to go. Yes. Our go to to go.If it is Sunday, it is time to call Rice n Roll.I tend to eat mostly vegetarian dishes from there lately. So much easier than doing a stir fry at home. Hubby likes the pot stickers. I like the soup.Fresh. Free delivery. No strange aftertaste that happens after Chinese take out sometimes. Great prices (especially compared with the other take out restaurants.

Im not a huge fan of Chinese food, but theirs is really good! Good ingredients, like quality chicken, which is often hard to come by in Chinese.

Wow! Huge disappointment!We ordered food on-line and had it delivered to us back in March and it was pretty good. We had only ordered a few items to supplement food from another restaurant as mom had invited additional guests at the last minute. This time, we decided to order on-line for pick-up for another family dinner.To ensure that we have enough food tonight, we decided to order a variety and lots of it. We're all big fans of good leftovers so it's never a problem. Here's our dinner for seven:Hot & Sour Soup x2 - Good, nothing specialVegetable Spring Rolls x2 - Okay; served with thin sweet & sour sauce; greasy when coldKorean Chicken Wings x2 - one order mild; one order extra spicy; best items of the night but very little difference in spiciness between the two orders.Honey Walnut Prawns - my gawd! did they fry this in the same oil they fry fish in? sure smelled like it. blah!Chicken Salad - iceberg lettuce, cilantro, sliced fried chicken and 1000 island dressing without the islands? pass.Salt and Pepper Tofu - okay, but not very salty nor very peppery.Cumin Lamb* - we had this last time and it's still good but how'd it get so greasy?Rock Cod Filet in Black Bean Sauce* - we found the salt that was missing from the Salt & Pepper Tofu; The fish tasted as if it had been brined.Snow Peas w/ Shrimp - this must have been the first dish cooked and then with the lid placed on the container, both the shrimp and snow peas continued to steam until they were nastily overcooked.Tomato Beef Chow Mein - okay flavor; lacking in tomatos, beef, bell peppers and onions.Basil Eggplant with Chicken and Prawns* - found all the listed ingredients; couldn't taste the basil.Twice-Cooked Pork* - mehSome of the dishes were served in styro clamshells. The rest were presented in disposable black plastic containers with clear plastic lids. The black container items generally had a lot of "sauce". Note the items with asterisks*. Those items had amazing amounts of greasy sauce at the bottom of the container.Overall, this meal is a dismal failure. We didn't finish a single dish. The best were the Korean Chicken Wings, Cumin Lamb (although greasy) and Tomato Beef Chow Mein. It's highly unlikely that we'll order dinner here again, not after spending over $125 for a mostly salty, greasy dinner. Four hours later, I'm still thirsty....

Since I have been Yelping this is the best Chinese food I have had!Rice and Roll is Chinese Food heaven literally. First, the location makes you feel like you had to travel to heaven to get there. It`s in Pacifica where it is already VERY foggy. Then you have to climb and climb super steep hills (at one point the sign says 19% grade). And amongst the homes at the very tiptop of the hill you find Rice and Roll. When you reach the top of the 1.5 mile climb you feel like you are at the top of some Tibetan mountain. Make sure your car has good brakes because at the end of your meal you still have to descend the steep, moist, slippery mountain.The location has limited parking but that corresponds to the limited seating inside (seven or so tables). When we arrived all the tables were just taken and they initially said that it would be a 30 to 45 minute wait. But after five minutes they said they were going to "get" us a table. Then moments later two Asian ladies come through the front door with a small table for two and set it up in the corner. NOW THAT IS SERVICE!We were quickly seated and offered tea while we went over the menu. And this menu is huge. Since this was our first time here we stuck to items with pictures on the menu.First was the Korean chicken wings, fried to a perfect crispness with a slightly sweet soy garlic glaze. There was also some other spice that added to the complexity of this dish but I could not identify it. The crispiness of the wings even rivals that of the Ludo Bites truck in Los Angeles.Second was the orange chicken ordered by my Japanese counterpart at this meal. I know, orange chicken is not really a chinese dish but that is what she was craving. (My Japanese friend noted that in Japan there is not ANY dish called Teriyaki Chicken but at every Japanese restaurant they serve it... So suck it). Once again the crispy batter was the best. The Szechuan style sauce was spicy and just slightly sweet with the taste of freshly grated orange rind. YUM.The third dish was beef fried rice. Season well with good sized chucks of a marinated flank steak. NOTE: If you pick up the to go menu sitting at a table near the waiting area they have a coupon on it that offers free fried rice if you order two entrees.Finally saving the best for last was the eggplant with chicken and shrimp. Delicious. You could possibly throw out the chicken and shrimp but they make a nice condiment to the real star here, the eggplant. It was perfectly sized pieces that melted in your mouth. The was once again a Szechuan style (spicy) glaze with just a hint of sweetness. I love love love eggplant and the flavors on this dish just put me in heaven. I wish I could find eggplant like this in LA.The food here comes really fast, like, in under five minutes from ordering we already started to receive items. I must warn you though, the food here is going to come out HOT. You have been warned so don't blame anyone when you go to take a bite out of an entree that JUST came out of the kitchen and you ruin the meal by burning your taste buds. THE FOOD IS GOING TO BE HOT!!!Service here was excellent. I could not have had a better experience. The service here was soo good we had to leave a 40% tip.All I know that if I am ever in the bay area I will come here again.Bravo guys.... Now I am off to the kitchen to have some of the left overs for breakfast. After writing this review I am salivating and I must get me a taste again of Rice And Roll.

Who would have thought some of the best Chinese food I've ever had would be located in Pacifica of all places?? Thanks to the many trustworthy and well-written reviews on Yelp, we were able to find a really special eatery in an area we did not know very well! Rice N' Roll is cheap, filling and most importantly, finger lickin' good!I have to admit I had my doubts about eating here at first. I usually do not trust popular cuisines such as Mexican or Chinese if its located in areas I'm not familiar with. Boy was I wrong. Compared to the many Chinese restaurants in the East Bay, I'd go to Rice N' Roll in a heartbeat!Not only do they have a comprehensive menu and an excellent variety of lunch combos, but its all less than $7 if you catch their lunch special! I ordered the Korean Chicken Wings which were not only really fresh but were covered in a flavorful sweet & spicy sauce!We also ordered green onion pancakes, fried tofu and pot stickers, all of which were delicious and very memorable! My father can be hard to please since he prefers to eat vegan but even he was blown away by how yummy the food was! If you have any vegetarians or vegans in your group, Rice N' Roll should be able to accommodate them.Our waitress was really sweet and attentive. The cook gets my respect and gratitude for his work, he should get an award at the very least! Overall I cannot recommend this place enough for the food it offers, its excellent Chinese food. Portions are just right, not too much and not too little.

The bf and I were in Pacifica and I wanted Chinese food. So, I searched for nearby Chinese restaurants and saw that the reviews for this place were mostly good and that's why we decided to check them out.We pulled up to the tiny parking lot, which probably only had 4 or 5 spaces. The restaurant was empty when we walked in and we were told to sit anywhere we wanted. So, we sat by the window and our waitress gave us the menus.Since we got to the place before 4pm, the lunch specials were still available. The lunch specials are served from 11am-4pm. Anyway, the bf ordered the mango beef with chow mein, an egg roll, and a Sprite. I had the sweet and sour chicken with chow mein and an egg roll. We also had the Korean chicken wings and fried rice.The waitress brought us hot and sour soup to start because the lunch specials are all served with soup, rice, and an egg roll or soda. If you want chow mein/fried rice instead of steamed rice, it's $1 extra.The bf's food came out first and mine came out shortly thereafter along with the Korean chicken wings. The bf enjoyed his mango beef and said that the mango added a nice flavor to the beef and the pieces of mango were sweet and soft, but not mushy.The sweet and sour chicken was so good! I loved that it was all-white meat and the chicken was crunchy without being overcooked. It would have been better if the chicken was made into smaller pieces, but nonetheless, no complaints. The sauce wasn't too sweet either.The Korean chicken wings weren't the best I've ever had, but they were still good. I think they'd be better if the skin was crispier. The fried rice was standard as were the egg rolls, and the chow mein wasn't greasy at all.Overall, we were both very pleased with the food we had. We had lunch for about $25 with tip. Service was ok. The waitress apologized for making us wait for our check because she said there were a lot of phone orders. I'm glad she apologized and it's really understandable that they're busy with all the takeout and delivery orders. So, service isn't a deal breaker. Check this place out if you're craving Chinese food and you're in the area!

Probably the only Asian restaurant where I've voluntarily ordered from the non-meat section of the menu. Each dish is awesome for all you non-meat eaters! But the star by far at this establishment is the Korean Chicken Wing. Can we please have a moment of silence for this lovely piece of poultry...Now I've never had San Tung's wings (I know, blasphemy!) but if it's anything like Rice N Roll's, then I am so down.If you're not familiar with the area, you might get lost because it's kinda tucked away. Going north on Skyline, you'll make a left onto Manor Dr; south on Skyline, make a right. Easy peasy.

Thanks to Yelp, I have found my new favorite Chinese restaurant! I came here with my boyfriend on a Thursday afternoon at around 4pm. Luckily, we were able to find a parking spot right in front of Rice N Roll. It was pretty quiet, kind of dark, and not crowded at all! The hostess/waitress told us to sit anywhere as she quickly brought us our menus along with some tea. My boyfriend was craving chicken so we ordered the Korean chicken wings lunch plate, I ordered the Walnut Prawn lunch plate, and we both shared House Special Chow Mein.Decor: I definitely did not expect for any Chinese restaurant to have the kind of decor found at Rice N Roll. The decor reminded me of a girl's bedroom with the white paper lighting fixtures from Ikea, lavender walls, and dark furniture. It was definitely CLEAN which is a plus!*** All the lunch plates come with rice or veggie chow mein, soup, an egg roll or a soda *** 11am-4pmSoup -- The soup of the day was the Hot and Sour soup. It was my first time having Hot and Sour soup so I couldn't really compare it. The soup was a little on the spicy side, but very good.Korean chicken wings lunch special -- SO good! My boyfriend opted for Brown rice which is $1.00 extra. The chicken reminded me of San Tung's and SO's chicken, but I prefer Rice N Roll's chicken! It was perfectly seasoned, crispy on the outside, thoroughly cooked on the inside, and finger licking good!Walnut Shrimp lunch special -- OMG best walnut prawns, ever! The prawns were huge, succulent, and delicious! The walnuts were nice and sweet, too. :) They didn't overdo the mayo which is nice.Egg roll -- It wasn't the best egg roll, but it was free lol.Chow Mein -- Okay, so my favorite House Special Chow Mein was from Paradise Restaurant, but Rice N Roll definitely won my heart with their chow mein. They had a perfect noodle to meat to veggie ratio and they added garlic which I absolutely love!Tea -- Okay, the tea was free but wow! If you're familiar with Tpumps in San Mateo, this is exactly what their tea tastes like! The Jasmine Green Tea was heaven!Total: $24.97Overall, I HIGHLY recommend Rice N Roll. Their portions are HUGE, prices are cheap, and the ingredients are fresh! I lovelovelove this place! If you're on Skyline, just turn left or right on Manor Dr. and it's right there! Don't even bother going on Highway 1.

I never knew about this place until I depended on yelp to find me a Chinese restaurant that was open after 9 pm. Kinda crazy none of my friends even heard about it until the first time we went, since we all live so close to this place.Drive up and see it's in this tiny plaza. You can park on the street (good luck) also, but after dark I'd try to stick as close to the plaza as possible.We walk in and it's cozy and CLEAN, about 8 tables and kinda dim to set the mood I guess? Menu is pretty decent and reasonably priced. Our favorites were the Korean chicken wings and some black mushroom vegetable dish. Overall, we enjoyed everything we ordered. Nothing was super oily or over or undercooked. Really nothing to complain about because for the price, the portions are pretty large and was better than your average cheap, greasy, MSG, Chinese joint. Don't get me wrong it's not super amazing, but for the price, this place can't be beat.Lunch is super cheap here as well. 1 entree, fried rice and soup + a soda or eggroll. I think it was $5.95 and up.Order out if you can! With two entree orders, you get free fried rice or chow mien. I guess it's to encourage orders since the parking lot is so dang tiny. Great deal since you can pretty much get family dinner for under $20.If you're in the mood for some good, reasonably priced food come to Rice N Roll...or have them come to you!

I've never set foot in RIce N Roll...why? Because Rice N Roll comes to me =)One of my favorite 'Grub Hub' Chinese food places. When you get home from work and you're tired and don't feel like cooking...Rice N Roll is there to take care of you!My (to) go-to dishes:Korean Chicken wings - goshdarnit if these things aren't just the most super addictive! Even delivered, they taste amazing! We usually order them medium spicy (it's really not spicy - hubby doesn't have the same spicy tolerance I do!). They're tender, meaty and savory.Tomato beef chow mein - hubby introduced me to this delicious dish. It sounds gnarly, but there's something magical about the combination of tomato saucyness (is this even a word?!) and tender beef. They do this right, even down to the noodles.Salt and pepper fish - another hit! Tender white fish (of unknown type) in a lightly crispy batter - we also order this one medium spicy. The pieces somehow melt in your mouth and the combo of salty and spicy just keeps bringing you back for more!Delivery tends to be painless. If you call the restaurant directly, you can use their coupon for a free fried rice or free chow mein with any two entree orders. They are pretty good about delivering within the hour (except that one time they were almost 2 hours late!!!).Thanks RIce N Roll for saving me from KP duty!

I'm glad I found this place on yelp because it was a pretty good experience.It's easy to pass by this place if you're just casually driving around because it's at the far left corner of this small plaza behind the liquor store and 8 Sushi.This place is small-ish/decent sized seating. Lack of decoration and seemed kind of boring inside but the customer service and the food made up for it.Our waiter was very nice and helpful and wasn't rude at all when he was hurrying around different tables. I ordered their crab puff's and he immediately put in my order while we looked at the rest of the menu.Good selection of item's you could choose, we really wanted to try out their korean wing's since every review here say's it's something we should try BUT we will try next time because we weren't too hungry.Crab puff's came to our table quickly and they were delicious! We also ordered their pork dumpling's, pork fried rice and their honey walnut prawn's.-Crab Puff's weren't hot, they were warm. But still delicious and crunchy. $5.95 for 6 pieces)-Dumpling's were yummy and moist. ($3.95 for 3 pieces)-Pork fried rice was a little on the dry side and lacked a little bit of flavor. Add a bit of their soy sauce and it added the right amount of flavor. ($7 something for a big plate full)- Honey walnut prawn's were alright, they weren't too crispy like the way I like it BUT it was still good. Not as good as 3 brother's from China in Pleasant Hill. But I give these one's a thumb's up because there was a fair amount of prawn's and walnut's, compared to other places were they give you a ton of walnut's and probably 5-6 prawn's. I'm sure we had 10-13 prawn's in our dish. ($9+)It was a good experience and we will definitely come back! :)

THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE, GREASY, MSG RIDDEN CHINESE FOOD.One night while my boyfriend and I were both starving and too lazy to cook or go out for food, we decided to get on the internet to search for local restaurants that deliver to our area. We discovered Rice N Roll, which happened to be less than 2 miles away. A quick phone call and 30 mins later, we were enjoying delicious and MSG-frree Chinese delivery. The food was so tasty, we decided to dine at the actual establishment the very next day.. and then TWICE AGAIN WITHIN THE SAME WEEK. Yeah, we found their food to be that good. Here's a list of things that had us coming back & urging our friends/family to give them a try:-Crab Rangoon ($5.95): Nice and crispy, filled with crab & cream cheese :D-Chicken Corn Soup ($6.95): Chicken + corn + egg = best soup ever-Korean Chicken Wings ($8.95): Crispy with the perfect balance of sweet & spice-Sesame Chicken ($8.95): Panda Express' orange chicken will taste like butthole after you've had this wonderful creation-Walnut Prawns ($9.50): some of the best I've ever had (def. not just fried shrimp tossed in mayonnaise & sprinkled with sugar like with other places)-Seafood Pan Fried Noodle ($8.95): THE BEST PF NOODLE DISH in the universeEverything comes in fairly large portions, even their lunch plates, which go for around $6. I really like that they offer brown rice and meatless options. The employees are always very friendly and delivery always arrives in a timely manner. Try to save room for their fried banana and green tea ice cream (:

It was a pathetic Saturday night. I was stuck at home alone with a flu. I felt gross, looked gross, and the weather outside was just as gross. I figure I'd just get a pizza delivered to my place, so I could eat it alone in the presence of the warm glow from the TV to complete my sad night.Alas, while looking through my choices for places delivering in the area, I stumbled across Rice N Roll. Okay, the name is kind of funny, but I saw that yelp had given it 4 stars. Whoa. 4 stars? Delivering now? It was 9:15pm! Okay. I decided to try it...SO GLAD! I got... hot and sour soup, Kung Pao Shrimp, and Korean chicken wings! I mean, it's not the most authentic chinese food, I guess but it tasted good! The Kung Pao Shrimp was perfect, the Korean chicken wings were deep fried and glazed in a sweet soy sauce, and the hot and sour soup had plenty of all that goodness that it usually comes in. Everything was packaged nicely, and delivery was pretty prompt.Basically, if you're looking for a late night delivery that's 1. not pizza and 2. pretty delicious, try this place out!
