Rice Paper Scissors CBD
A dream to open a place that embraces the well-loved style of Asian street food. A place with no rules but to have fun with a beer in hand… a place that weary travellers to South East Asia know and love.
Way back in 2013, the boys fulfilled that crazy idea of opening a restaurant where you only used your hands to eat. The food was great, the cocktails… even greater, but best of all were the amazing experiences shared. Food tastes better this way.

Great food, nice presentation, lovely staff, would dine here again
The staff was amazing, props to our lovely waitress with a fish bag as an earring ☺️ you are a star. The food was very nice and plentiful and the drinks where really good too. The only downside to the experience was that the music inside was too loud at times. But that was all.
Food: prawn sugarcane, thai fried chicken was good, but the rest: pork belly over cooked, they could do a better job with kangaroo meat and egg plant was a mush!
Service: we found only two people friendly, no one was ready to serve, take the order.. they took 20-25 mins just to get a glass of wine.
And they tricked us in getting the $45 set menu, where as it was $45 per person! Food was a waste, money down the drain.
NEVER COMING BACK HERE, not recommending it to anyone.
Quality has gone down and the price has gone up - very disappointing
First restaurant booking after lockdown and it didn't disappoint. 5 delicious courses for $45 was great value. Good service and everything came in a timely manner.
Absolutely wonderful hospitality, cannot recommended enough!
Great food, good selection of drinks as well. In a lovely CBD laneway.
Food was amazing! Service was great!
As per usual, fantastic hospitality. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. New menu additions were so yum.
Amazing food and plenty of it, staff where very attentive, had great banter with our table and kept the drinks flowing.
We love dining outside at this venue which has good heating even on a cold winters night. The view isn’t wonderful but you really don’t notice. The food is always outstanding and the staff are wonderful. We always have the five course deal which is great value.
The outdoor seating was really lacking, the ground was uneven, have the heaters were not on, the lighting was poor and it just felt disappointing, I wasn’t aware the booking was for outdoor but definitely ask to not be seated there.
Flavours of food were amazing and staff were very helpful and nice
We won’t be back
Service was lovely from the staff
However the food was way too salty and went home with stomach cramps
Josh our host was friendly and funny. We had a great time and the food/ambience was excellent.
Everything was fantastic; attentive staff, great food, loved it.
Everything was spot on, venue, food and staff. I have wanted to dine here for a long time and we weren't disappointed! We will be back :-)
Food was delicious and enjoyable but definitely on the lighter side. Everyone left feeling hungry still
quality food. quality service. reasonable price. go for it
Not often you leave feeling hungry, although the food is tasty it’s over priced and very small serves. We left dinner and went elsewhere for some Traditional Thai food.
We had the $40 p.p option with 5 choices, not worth it
Amazing food, great service, friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
One of my favourite restaurants anywhere in the world, you cannot go past the Pinot Tuna *drool*
Had no idea this place had move to new location! It's bigger and bright and you can make bookings too.
We didn't get our table on time, due to the fact guest had overstayed their time limit before us, so we were made to wait for the table!
Music was too loud inside, had to yell to speak to my friend across the table!
Food was okay but overpriced for $40pp for five dishes, been to other places like this, $32 pp, such a better value !
Staff were not warm enough, freindness wasn't there unfortunately and head male person at door greeting diners wasn't the nicest in his manners !!
The toilets were used by male and female, only two toilets, for me this is a safety issues and concern about ones safety as its up a flight of stairs!!
The menu was a little hard to read, two different colour writing, the gold side was real hard to read, the food was good but not sure if I would come back here, too much choices around the city.
I love this restaurant. I especially loved the Yellow Vegetarian and Sri Lankan Beetroot curry.
Beautiful food! We had 5 dishes to share and all were packed full of favour, seafood cooked to perfection! The pork and prawn bettle leaf is outstanding.
Rice bowl is gross!!!, and The calamari was overcooked :( but amazing food other then that.
Hi Justin, Thanks for taking the time to leave us some feedback. We are sorry to hear the Warm Rice Salad and Calamari did not meet your expectations, but glad that you enjoyed all the other flavors. We look forward to having you back to try some of our other dishes - I'd recommend our Crying Tiger or Tempura Eggplant buns next time round!
First time coming to this restaurant. Food was good but still has room for improvement. Rice was a little over cooked for our liking and Roti was little too hard to chew. However we loved the juicy lamb ribs! Delicious and melt in our mouth.
Will definitely come again to try other food next time.
Thank you for a great time.
Hi there! We are always looking to improve and we thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback that we can act on straight away. We're looking forward to having you back to try our new and improved Rice and Roti and eat more of our delicious Ribs.
Staff were extremely kind and welcoming. The food was delicious and very well priced for the quality. Our cocktails were delicious I particularly recommend the espresso martini!
Hi Tom, Thanks for your kind words! Looking forward to having you back for more food and more Espresso Martinis.
Sat in the cold outside on the road next to the carpark :(
Great food, great cocktails and friendly service.
Hi Rita, We're glad to hear you enjoyed a trifecta of good food, yum cocktails and great service. We're looking forward to having you back again soon.
Our waiter was delightful! The food was delicious.
Hi Helen, Thanks for your lovely words! We too think our staff are delightful. We're looking forward to having you and your friends back in again.
Wonderful food and service. Highly recommended. A taste sensation.
Hi Neil! We love to hear that you enjoyed our yum food and wonderful service. We can't wait to have you back in again soon.
Fabulous night out to celebrate my birthday! Our waiter josh was excellent and service, food and whole experience was great. We will be back! Thank you

Hi Adrian, We're glad to hear you had a great time and enjoyed the atmosphere of our restaurant. Thank you for leaving us some feedback and we can't wait to have you back again soon.
Service and venue are lovely.
However portions are small
Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with some feedback. We pride ourselves on highlighting the wonderful flavours our quality, locally sourced ingredients in smaller portions. We're sorry to hear that the portion size didn't quite meet your expectations. We promise to work on it and look forward to having you back again soon.
Great food and service we had a great night thank you!
Hi Sally, Thank you for coming in and thank you for leaving us some feedback ! Can't wait to do it all over again with you again.
Fantastic food, excellent service, and friendly staff.
Consistently brilliant; staff were welcoming and attentive (not like some places where staff see through you when needing service) with good understanding of dishes (not like some places where they have to keep asking kitchen) - as we were the first to arrive we were most appreciative we were seated inside with back support - cosy makes a big difference. Love the attention to food presentation on lovely crockery with the right balance of flavours & textures. Maybe good idea to advise 5 course sharing option is now $40 not $35 as is on menu - still great value. The music was somewhat loud, for me should enhance the mood and not be so obvious and possibly more mellow - possibly jazz genre - though this may no appeal to the younger clientele - otherwise it's a satisfying, enjoyable 90 mins. Love sharing this place with friends especially on their birthdays.
Hi ViBi, Thanks for leaving such a great review! We're really glad that you enjoyed our yum food. We pride ourself on putting our service first and we're glad to hear your comments on this. We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with some feedback and we can't wait to have you back again soon!
This is a very good restaurant, but scored less than it should. The reason: they don't offer coffee or tea to finish off the meal. I can't believe that is not offered.. a fundamental for eating out I would have thought.
Hi Bernard, Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback, we really appreciate it. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your time and we promise to work on our range of after dinner options for the next time we see you!
Great selection of interesting share meals. Even the vegan options were tasty. Service was a bit slow but they were attentive to our requests.
Hi Burnsy, We're glad to here you enjoyed our food and even happier to hear you tried some of our great Vegan dishes. Thanks for your feedback on our service, we hope to improve upon it and look forward to having you back again soon!
