Homemade noodles a block from the Bolt Bus!

A Seattle friend introduced me to the Shanghai Garden, on 6th and Weller Street, a block from the International District transit stop and the Bolt Bus. The Shanghai-style food features homemade noodles, green or white, dim sum, many dishes with vegetables, and lunch specials every day. The green... read more

Worked in downtown and decided to hop on the train and venture out to the Int'l District for a Chinese lunch. Did my usual test of Mongolian beef here. All I can say is it wasn't worth the effort. "Meh ... " no heat, bland watered-down sauce (well, they may have deliberately made it that way, I don't know ...).... More

For value and friendliness, I recommend Seoul Tofu House two doors down on 6th Ave. They serve a decent portion of rice with each meal and don't charge extra like Shanghai does.

We arrived in the ID hungry for Japanese food but couldn't get a table for several hours on a Saturday night. After looking around the neighborhood we settled on the Shanghai Garden to feed the two hungry teenagers with us who were starting to get a little testy. They devoured an order of potstickers, broccoli beef and fried rice and... More

I stopped in on a hot afternoon for a drink and an appetizer. I asked the waitress to recommend something spicy and chose the Spicy Beef Tendon appetizer and a Tsing Tao beer. It was very good! The restaurant is not large, but the decor is nice and the waitress was very helpful. I don't think they have a parking... More

This is one of our favorite Asian restaurants anywhere. Highly recommend Green Handshaven Noodles and Pea Vines with Oyster a Sauce. Also try their Orange Beef, Outstanding. Great service and consistent good food for reasonable prices.

We were excited to experience the food and flavours of the International District and decided to go for Chinese. It was past lunch and we were hungry so decided to stop in. The decor was nice, but our first indication to get out was when we asked and was told that they didn't serve Chinese brocolli. No Chinese brocolli in... More

Based on others' reviews and the fact that it was across the street from the Kinokuniya bookstore, we had dinner there around 5 pm on a Wednesday evening. Maybe because it was early but the restaurant was not very crowded at all. We ordered the shaved noodles - both regular and green barley and in soup and stir-fried. The noodles... More

We enjoyed our meal; the restaurant was crowded. I'm picky (not quality - just enjoy limited types of food), and I enjoyed every dish we ordered (beef/green onion with sweet bun, honey almond shrimp, shaved noodles, moo shu pork) although I couldn't make myself eat the shrimp which looked to be wrapped in green jello. The rest of my group... More
