The place is doing brisk business so it doesn't need my recommendation. But it irks me to read so many reviews from people who simply come in expecting an Americanized fare. Even though the restaurant is named in Chinese after an Yunnan dish, it's run by a Sichuanese family (maybe not very professional in serving, but sincere and hard-working) and... More

Ordered the cumin lamb. Every thin slice was 90 percent fat. After bring the pieces to a chemist I wrote the Seattle Times. At the restaurant they said this was how they prepared the dish. What a lot of crap. I had this plenty of times not only at this restaurant but at Seven Star Pepper in Seattle and the... More

Food is good, didn't expect that much leftover, if you are up for some flavourful dishes this is the place to go, just don't order too many dishes if you are going with friends. If I live close by I will definitely go back again. Wait staff are not very friendly but we were in good mood and company so... More

I probably should not be expecting good service here if the claim to fame here is sizeable portions and spicy food but some common sense is definitely warranted. We were not seated after waiting for 10 minutes even when there were empty tables. Service personnel just walked by without trying to make any eye contact. My friend walked up to... More

The area around Microsoft is loaded with top quality Asian restaurants kept on their toes because of the competition and Asian born. The food here is very good. As the name suggests, very flavorful, with most dishes various degrees of hotness (to pain level), but even the non hot dishes are full of flavor. Usually full, wait staff and ambiance... More

Came and dined here a lot of times and I like its food, in particular cold dishes, rice noodle and dry pot chicken.

Spiced is aptly named and might be addictive. While they've toned it down just a bit since first opening, portions are still generous and flavors intoxicating. In some dishes the aromatic Szechuan peppercorns do indeed "make the mouth numb" but their food is about much more than just being "hot." If you balance your order well, you'll appreciate the depth... More

I had the chili chicken and she tried the tea smoked duck. Both dishes tasted great, maybe a little bit too much salt in mine. The staff had difficulties understanding us; we had to ask twice to get water. Our dishes literally arrived ten minutes apart. Sometimes we had trouble getting hold of staff at all. The decor is functional.... More

I lived in Taipei & Beijing for 6 years and have eaten at many Chinese restaurants throughout greater China, as well as San Francisco, LA, NYC, London, Montreal. Spiced Restaurant in Bellevue is, hands down, the best Chinese food I've eaten at a restaurant outside of Asia. The atmosphere isn't so great (although it's very authentic), but the food is... More
