A good view of the harbor and delicious Chinese food! Come at lunch time ordered dinner food. But there is also lunch special, and the price looks great!

This outfit has been in business for close to 20 years, probably due to low prices. While the restaurant can be praised for serving as a dance and live music hub of the community (it has several rooms including a bar with the dance floor), this all does not excuse the exceedingly poor quality of chef's work. Chicken did not taste like it was chicken, and prawns - while large - had a uniformly rubbery texture. Scallops were undercooked. Soup was tepid. Tea was devoid of any taste. Every single item that we ordered tasted bland and uninspiring.

For as long as I can remember, this place has been on Lake Union. We had a coupon form the entertainment book, so we decided to give it a try on Sunday afternoon. The view over the lake is nice, the dining room could use a little updating, but the food was great. We ordered a "combo" style meal and had enough left over for an entire second meal. (and I am a big eater). We would return…

I visited China Harbor with a friend a few weeks ago and ordered the Hot + Sour Soup and Almond Fried Chicken. Both were very tasty! The hostess was very warm and personable and made sure that we had everything we needed. Will be sure to visit again in the future.

I stop by here when I go biking or running by Lake Union to enjoy the delicious food and nice views of Lake Union. I am a big fan of the General Tso's Chicken, the Mushu Pork with buns, and BBQ pork fried rice. This is a nice place to stop and relax after a long, stressful day, and the host/servers are always quick to seat you and provide you prompt service. I love and will continue to visit this place.
