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

I just started a new job and my new colleagues love Shanghai Garden. The hand shaved noodles are super delicious - the texture is just right, the seasoning is spot on. I highly recommend the pumpkin hand shaved noodles. The service Is efficient and friendly. It is now a "go to" place for me!

We ate at the Shanghai Garden twice during September, each time the food was delicious. I loved the hotplates especially the prawn one, they certainly don't stint on the quantity, at first I wondered if I'd be able to eat it all but it was so tasty that it proved not to be a problem! The restaurant is comfortable and... More

I grew up eating in NYC's Chinatown so I consider myself knowledgeable of the various types of food served. While in Seattle and visiting the tiny Chinatown here, we ate in Shanghai Garden as it appeared clean for lunch. We were given menus that featured Combo dishes but not served on the weekend. My wife wanted a small serving of... More

There is always so much to do when visiting Washington and the Seattle area it is hard to pick and choose the next excursion. Make sure however that you do not miss the International District and the many cultural sites and sounds. Enter on 6th Avenue so you can experience the Entrance Pagoda and stop for a picture with the... More
