China Harbor Restaurant is my favorite Chinese restaurant in the NW, hands down. All of their food is great, not to mention, 100% authentic. My favorite dish is the Almond Fried chicken. My favorite appetizer here is the BBQ pork, and the Mongolian Beef is so tender melts in your mouth SO GOOD. The dining room always has beautiful and... More

It's been here a good 20+ years .... How? I don't know?? Low prices, yes , but the food has no flavor... The chicken and beef were rubbery, bland, and tasted horrible. The service was terribly slow with the last entree delivered 15 min after the first.... Blech....

Excellant location and great staff. Enjoyed the view and the simple menu. Hot and Spicy soup authentic and tasty. Pork well cooked and beef also good. Very reasonable pricing. Will return.

A good view of the harbor and delicious Chinese food! Come at lunch time ordered dinner food. But there is also lunch special, and the price looks great!

This outfit has been in business for close to 20 years, probably due to low prices. While the restaurant can be praised for serving as a dance and live music hub of the community (it has several rooms including a bar with the dance floor), this all does not excuse the exceedingly poor quality of chef's work. Chicken did not... More

For as long as I can remember, this place has been on Lake Union. We had a coupon form the entertainment book, so we decided to give it a try on Sunday afternoon. The view over the lake is nice, the dining room could use a little updating, but the food was great. We ordered a "combo" style meal and... More

I visited China Harbor with a friend a few weeks ago and ordered the Hot + Sour Soup and Almond Fried Chicken. Both were very tasty! The hostess was very warm and personable and made sure that we had everything we needed. Will be sure to visit again in the future.

I stop by here when I go biking or running by Lake Union to enjoy the delicious food and nice views of Lake Union. I am a big fan of the General Tso's Chicken, the Mushu Pork with buns, and BBQ pork fried rice. This is a nice place to stop and relax after a long, stressful day, and the... More

We went and ordered fried rice, chow mein, and my husband ordered General Chow chicken with fried rice. The food came very quickly and when we started to eat we were all disgusted. The meat in the chow mein and fried rice and not recognizable. I couldn't even swallow it. Anyway, I will never go back and it was THE... More

Looks great from the outside and seems to host many well dressed events judging by the people going in and out (I run past it regularly) however don't be fooled. The service was non existent. The water glasses were so dirty. The starters were ok - primarily fried. However the entrees were unrecognizable as food. We were the only people... More
