“Memorable meal”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

This is one of the best meals that we've even had- the black bean crab (also had garlic, ginger, bell peppers, and onions in the sauce) was wonderful! The two of us sucked the fresh sweet meat of the shell- we had water bowls for our fingers and shell crackers too. Ordered rice and a serving of pea vines with garlic sauce- perfect combination with the crab. Excellent service! We had this memorable meal at 11pm - the Sea Garden is open until 3pm!! We will definitely come back when in Seattle!

“Very authentic food and service.”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

The food, service, and presentation was very authentic. It doesn't look like much from the curb, but once you get in the door it is a dinner experience. The menu has something for everyone, but we especially enjoyed the black bean crab. Cheers!

“If You Have To Get A Salt Or MSG Overload This Is For You”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

We asked for the whole steamed fish which was not available that day. We settled for spring rolls, shitake mushroom entree, roasted duck and stir fried shrimp done Cantonese style. Spring rolls were average, mushrooms were tough , the nice crispy skinned duck was good (and there was plenty of it). Absolutely everything is prepared with msg which we asked the waiter to leave out of the shrimp dish. Hard to tell if the cook did as we asked because the dish was overwhelmed with salt.

“Decent Food and Service”
Reviewed December 10, 2012 via mobile

But forgettable too. Cantonese style for the most part, but some interesting side dishes for the more adventurous. This part of Seattle is filthy. More street people than the norm, poor lighting, and no police presence. Take a taxi or your own private vehicle. Too bad

“Love this restaurant!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

One of the pleasures of coming back to Seattle is to be able to eat good Chinese food! We love this place. They have an expert touch with sea food.

It's not fancy. It's reasonably priced. And the food is always excellent.

We only had enough time to plan one dinner in Seattle on this trip, and this is the one that we absolutely had to come back to.
