To many, it may seem like there is a lack of upscale Thai restaurants in Greensboro. However, a quick trip to Jamestown reveals the quaint restaurant, Rice Paper, serving authentic Thai and Vietnamese food and beverages.

As mentioned, the restaurant is in Jamestown, which means that it is about a twenty minute drive from Northwest. The building isn’t too large, and is down the road from a major bread factory. Walking into the restaurant reveals a small seating area with the kitchen in the back. The host seated me very quickly once I got in

Once the waitress came over, I ordered a Thai sweet tea. It had what appeared to be a cream or milk on the top with regular tea at the bottom. Overall, the presentation was very pretty. However, the taste was extremely sweet and not something to drink for refreshment. I had to order a water soon after.

After the drinks were ordered, I had to make a choice on what to order, and there were a lot. I was inundated with a menu spanning ten or more pages of options. To be quite frank, I was overwhelmed with all the choices of food I had never seen before. Eventually, I narrowed it down to the Duck Sliders appetizers.

As far as pricing, everything was reasonable with entrees starting at around $10, but as this is a semi-upscale restaurant, some prices could enter the $20 range. Desserts and drinks were also priced competitively.

After a modest waiting time, the appetizer arrived. The presentation of the duck sliders was incredible. They were opened up to reveal duck with carrots, onion and cilantro, all topped with hoisin sauce.  The breading was soft and doughy, which complimented the sweet and tangy tastes of the duck well. I was pleased with my choice of entree and would recommend it to others.

For the main entree, I ordered meatball  pho (pronounced f-uh). The meat was accompanied by a broth that left a considerable warming sensation in my body, with noodles complimenting. If you are ever feeling sick, this is an excellent choice that warms the heart.

Overall, the restaurant experience was great. The service was on the slower side, expect to take your time while eating,  but still friendly. Regardless, the food was excellent and I would recommend that Northwest students make the trek to Jamestown to eat at Rice Paper.
