Rice Paper has some of the most beautifully plated food and exquisite blossoming tea that I have seen but its aesthetics are far more impressive than its flavors and value.
We started the meal with tofu spring rolls which were heavy on the rice noodles and lighter on the more flavorful components. Nonetheless, the rolls were fresh and tasty with the peanut dipping sauce.
My dining companion first ordered the plantation entree but it turned out they weren't serving it at that time so he chose the tamarind rice trio. I ordered the roadhouse smoky plate with tofu. Both plates were elegantly composed but were largely white rice and lettuce/cabbage. The menu described the tofu as grilled, which I found appealing, but it resembled fried tofu more than any grilled tofu I have eaten previously.
My food was adequate but it lacked the profusion of flavor and complexity that I expect from Vietnamese and Thai cuisine. I appreciated the pretty carrots but would have appreciated richer flavor even more - especially considering the cost.
