“Best Chinese Food Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

When we lived in Issaquah, the Szechuan Bean Flower was our absolute favorite restaurant -- and it still is! Unfortunately, we live about 130 miles from Issaquah, so when I was within 15 miles of Issaquah today I took a detour by the Szechuan Bean Flower to pick up a couple orders. We had one tonight and it was as outstanding as ever, even after having to reheat it, since it had over 2 hours to cool off before I got home with it. This restaurant has the best Chinese food we have ever had in our lives, the only other one that might tie with it being the Park Lock restaurant in Vancouver, British Columbia.

If you are within driving distance of Issaquah, you owe it to yourself to eat at the Szechuan Bean Flower restaurant. If you are caucasian, don't be surprised if you are the only caucasian there!

Serious Szechuan.
Worth the detour.
Cannot praise it highly enough.
Large portions--enough to take home afterwards.
Have been here several times.
Try fish, lamb, and pork.
Tofu, eggplant, pea vines.
Everything cooked perfectly.
Am happy that there are no white tablecloths--the prices would go way up!
