We are repeat diners who have never been disappointed. There are lots of restaurants serving Asian food in the Seattle area, and this is as good as any.

There is authenticity here and that makes for interesting options for dinner. There are all the expected dishes as well so no need to be concerned if you aren't too adventurous. The staff is really friendly and if you are in a hurry the food comes out quick. The vegetables were cooked perfectly, everything was delicious!! We will return soon!!

A stand by in downtown Issaquah. A large dining room with an attentive staff that is highly efficient. Parking is public parking behind Main Street. The hand shaved noodles are delicious. A great selection for a work lunch.

Chinese food with a variety of sauces. Hand shaved noodles are wonderful. Barley green pot stickers are amazing. Excellent Orange Beef and a vegetable dish of green pea pods with garlic is a must for vegie eaters. Will go there every time we are in Issaquah!

My family eats here each time we visit Issaquah. The service is impeccable, the food freshly prepared and delicious, and the variety of dishes is enough to satisfy any taste. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Six of us went here for dinner. We each ordered a different dish. Each dish was very good, especially the shrimp with cranberry sauce. Everyone loved the wonton soup as well. This is not the traditional chinese restaurant I am used to in my hometown of Cleveland. I recommend you give this place a try for something different.

Felt like some Chinese food, so stopped in. We were put off by the "unconventional" food selections, prices and the lack of the traditional "family style" dinner choices. Trendy and upscale, but not to our taste. We had appetizers only, then departed for a "real" Chinese restaurant around the corner.

We had a wonderful family meal here and I could not believe how fast our choices came out. The hand cut noodles were simply divine. The Long Beans were very good, although I would recommend asking for them to be done spicy. We will go back.

No trip to Issaquah is complete without a meal at Shanghai Garden. I love the variety of their dishes and being able to enjoy specialties like shaved beef tendon and jellyfish. The veggies are always flavorful and nicely cooked and their flying noodles just jump into your mouth! The service is friendly and casual.
