I have mixed feelings about this place. Even though the store is always clean and the staff is always friendly, the foods themselves are really just --- meh. Popcorn chicken: a little bit dry; Unagi Don: tastes fine but tiny portion; Rainbow Sushi Burrito: portion...is good but tastes average; Beef Noodle Soup: too salty and not much flavor in it, Tonkatsu Curry: it's just an everywhere curry. I like the idea of fusion restaurants but guys you need to get it done right.More

Bubble tea ✅ food menu with rice, noodle, and even poke dishes ✅ sweet desserts and cakes ✅ Big open space with games and music instruments ✅ Rain Cafe has a pretty wide selection and is a place that you'd expect in the urban core...of an Asian city rather than the suburban strip malls of Seattle. Great place to catch up with a friend.More

Avoid this place. You will leave hungry. My tiny poke salad was 11 bucks. When asked the said was 2 oz of meat. The dim sum next door is a much better bet.

I like this place a lot!! It's super urban in a suburban setting. The service is awesome, they change up the menu often, and the place is cozy. The cookie dough milk tea shake is AMAZING!! A definite must have! The desserts are a bit...hit or miss, so maybe skip those. If you stick with the cookie dough milk tea shake and the spicy soy ramen and you won't go wrong!More

Excellent service and food. They do not have a small menu but it is low sodium. The flavors really come through.

Bummer, I always take pictures. But this time I didn't have my equipment with me. I've had the most delicious soup ever and such a great place. We were lucky to score a seat, only because a nice young man shared his table with us....Prices are very affordable and it's well worth a visit when in Seattle. Beautiful food and great service with affordable prize. Have a try yourself, I loved it. Yum.More

Rain Cafe is a new a cafe in the same building complex as the Asian Food Center in North Seattle on Aurora. Great vibe and setting. Good for groups or go solo. What's great is the variety of food, desserts, and speciality drinks that's available....Like I said, why go Starbucks when you can go to Rain Cafe!More

Rain Cafe offers a variety of foods ranging from sandwiches, rice dishes, sushi rolls and specialty smoothies. My wife and I tried their unagi (eel) rice bowl and a beef rice bowl. Both were pretty good and served within a reasonable time. We will return...again to try out their other dishes.More
