So. Good.

Great neighborhood place by UW. Family run. Super friendly! The proprietress made me some tabouli fresh because they'd just run out. Great chicken dishes. If you're staying at any of the hotels on Roosevelt this is an easy (and safe) walk.

A friend recommended Cedar's for Indian food and we had a spectacular meal. The service was excellent and the portions of food were very generous. I will return if I'm in the area again!

We love coming here, the food is always wonderful. The variety and flavor! Consistently great over the years. Seems to be family run business which we like. Will continue coming here as long as they are open and the same people run it, A+++ They can get very busy at times and you may have to wait for a table,... More

The owner was very sweet and hospitable. The food was OK though. The lamb slices (Sharhat) was good. I've had better.

Having spent a busy day in Seattle my family were hungry. We found the restaurant by chance it it sis very small and looks more like a Cafe. The food was authentic, well presented and very tasty. The tables were waited on by a very friendly and genuine lady who cared whether you enjoyed her food.

The ambiance is lacking, but the food was really delicious! I love curry! Our table of 10 ordered a whole variety of items ranging from chicken korma, rogan josh, garlic naan, butter chicken. It was all fantastic! I think I liked the butter chicken the least, compared to the other dishes. We had enough for leftovers. It was just as... More

the wait is long most times so try to arrive later or earlier than the evening rush. The food is pretty good. If you are not a fan of Indian, they have some other choices like kabobs and humus. Not too many Indian restaurants in the Seattle area can compete with their food. Parking is hard to find so park... More

When I am in Seattle and I have the time I love to stop at Cedars because the food is just plain good. Our recent trip was no exception. The restaurant was fairly busy, so our service was a little slow, but very friendly. Start with the naan and then order just about anything.
