Rice Ave. delivers

I got home tonight and wanted to check out Rice Ave on 72 st in Jackson heights, i thought I might pick up some to-go food. So I left my apartment and started to walk towards 37th avenue, right on my corner there was a guy handing out menus, i took one, and it was from Rice Ave. Weird. NO?
Anyways i took the menu home and ordered some food. It arrived in less than 1/2 hour and was pretty good.
Basil fried rice with pork had good-if-not-great flavor, and the pieces of pork in it weren't the usual dried out strips or tiny chunks. They had a little heft that was kind of nice.I also had a dish that was called sprouts with fried tofu, not spicy not much of anything, but I liked it. A good vegetable, if not necessarily vegetarian (though I suspect it is) option, lighter than your usual Thai fare. Green curry chicken. I thought it had nice flavor and was pretty spicy, not incendiary. But there wasn't much stuff (chicken, bamboo shoots, etc.) plenty of sauce though. And I got mango sticky rice. yum. I have never had that. I LOVED it. I have had the banana and taro/ or sweet potato? sticky rice at sripaphai and love that too, but they don't seem to have the mango there. Plus this is cocnonut sticky rice, is that what is wrapped around the bananas at Sripaphai?
All in all I think it's a great delivery option. And I look forward to going to the restaurant to try some of the fried fish etc..
