“Unique among plenty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

The area around Microsoft is loaded with top quality Asian restaurants kept on their toes because of the competition and Asian born. The food here is very good. As the name suggests, very flavorful, with most dishes various degrees of hotness (to pain level), but even the non hot dishes are full of flavor. Usually full, wait staff and ambiance pretty nondescript. Many unique dishes. Try it, You will not be indifferent.

Came and dined here a lot of times and I like its food, in particular cold dishes, rice noodle and dry pot chicken.

“Bring friends, order more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

Spiced is aptly named and might be addictive. While they've toned it down just a bit since first opening, portions are still generous and flavors intoxicating. In some dishes the aromatic Szechuan peppercorns do indeed "make the mouth numb" but their food is about much more than just being "hot." If you balance your order well, you'll appreciate the depth of their offerings. Spiced is resaonably priced so a good strategy is to order more than you need, sample many dishes, learn what you love, and take the surplus home.Keep an eye on neighboring tables for further clues, It can be loud, but that's how it should be in a place like this.

“Good food, poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

I had the chili chicken and she tried the tea smoked duck. Both dishes tasted great, maybe a little bit too much salt in mine. The staff had difficulties understanding us; we had to ask twice to get water. Our dishes literally arrived ten minutes apart. Sometimes we had trouble getting hold of staff at all. The decor is functional. I like that they have round tables with a raised middle.

“Best Chinese food in the USA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

I lived in Taipei & Beijing for 6 years and have eaten at many Chinese restaurants throughout greater China, as well as San Francisco, LA, NYC, London, Montreal. Spiced Restaurant in Bellevue is, hands down, the best Chinese food I've eaten at a restaurant outside of Asia. The atmosphere isn't so great (although it's very authentic), but the food is just fabulous.
