After many visits over many years this is still our favorite. Good service and great menu at reasonable prices. We love their Green Hand Shaved Noodles, Peavines in Mushroom Oyster Sauce, and the best Orange Beef in Washington State.

Restaurant is in Chinatown diagonally from Waji and is a good place for those in the neighborhood for a sports event or other activity at one of the nearby venues. The menu has been expanded and includes hand shaven noodles (both regular and barley green), a variety of chicken, pork, and beef dishes, veggie options, sizzling platters, and good appetizers...

We arrived on a Friday night at 8pm after the Seattle Boat show and were able to get right in. Hot tea and water delivered to the table along with menus. It took a little while to decide,but the wait staff was very patient, and when we did order, they made sure it was delivered to the table quickly, well... More

Every trip to Seattle I meet my friends for dinner at Shanghai Garden. We order the barley green noodles, the crispy shrimp in plum chili sauce, and the morning glory stir fry. We usually get a couple of order of the noodles and shrimp and it's very very delicious.

While most snobby foodies will hate this place because it caters to Americans, it did a great job of recreating the East Coast Chinese food I grew up eating and was the best alternative I've had living on the West Coast. I was in Seattle for Jewish Christmas and wanted to eat some Chinese food. I went to the International... More

My buddy and I visited here before the Hawk's vs Brown's game on Sunday December 20th. Mostly because it was the only place that we could get a table. The staff was very friendly but also overwhelmed. Once we made our order however, the food came out quickly and was nice and hot. The pork dumplings took a while longer... More

We enjoyed an office party lunch here recently. A table for 8 was reserved and ready for us on arrival. After many years of coming here we found the quality again to be consistently good. Service is also good and friendly. We always order the Green Hand Shaven Noodles which is a house specialty. Another superior dish is Orange Beef,... More

I don't know how authentic Shanghai Garden is. I have never been to China. That said, I am a 20 year veteran chef. I have eaten in some of the best restaurants on the planet and have worked in many world class houses. I would rather eat at Shanghai Garden than any other restaurant in Seattle. The pan fried meat... More

A Seattle friend introduced me to the Shanghai Garden, on 6th and Weller Street, a block from the International District transit stop and the Bolt Bus. The Shanghai-style food features homemade noodles, green or white, dim sum, many dishes with vegetables, and lunch specials every day. The green noodle with vegetable and egg dish is not available anywhere else that... More

Worked in downtown and decided to hop on the train and venture out to the Int'l District for a Chinese lunch. Did my usual test of Mongolian beef here. All I can say is it wasn't worth the effort. "Meh ... " no heat, bland watered-down sauce (well, they may have deliberately made it that way, I don't know ...).... More
