It's very close to the Amtrak station so we come here for quick meals. It's a Hong Kong style cafe, so don't expect top of the line service and food quality. The portion is usually big so you feel full and it works out good bank for the buck. The fried food are quite greasy (very typical) but the meat... More

Just across the street from Chinatown/International District Light Rail station. Delicious! Be a little adventurous and order one of their "can't find elsewhere" dishes. We loved SP02

Don't let the outside deceive you! It looks sketchy from the outside, but it is very nice on the inside. Fantastic service, great food, wonderful little place.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a great lunch! Lots of menu options and all very affordable ($6.95+). Since my friend was on a limited lunchtime, we advised our server and food was served very promptly. In addition to the main course and rice, they also served a delicious soup and hot tea. Our hostess checked back to see if we... More

As promised, we came back here on our next Seattle trip. We had lunch again, very good, great service and very fast. We got there about 11:30 and took our time. While we were there, there was a steady stream of Asian customers that came in for a quick lunch. It sure is a non-descript looking place, and you might... More

My wife & I made a purpose trip to Chinatown for lunch, and we were not disappointed! We shared chow mien and an appy of fried squid, almost tempura. Delicious! Very easy access to light rail, it would be easy to stop for a meal on the way to a ball game. We will be back on our next Seattle... More

Family and I were on foot wandering in Seattle's Chinatown. We were hungry, and saw the Pacific Cafe. Lucky for us. It was super tasty! Highly recommended.

I have passed this place up several times, trying to stick with what was familiar. I finally stopped in on a busy Friday night. The menu is a bit overwhelming. I tried the chef's special chow mein and it was pretty good. The purple sticky rice sago in coconut milk for dessert was great. I saw a lot of people... More

My aunt & I got off the light rail in Chinatown. This quaint restaurant was across the street by the beautiful Chinese arch. We were pleased that the food was so good & fresh and very reasonable.
