I'd never eaten at a restaurant like this before. There was a wait time of an hour, but that's okay, we needed the time to go over the menu anyway. It's all a bunch of small meals one after the other, most of which are meant to be shared across the entire table. It worked out really well for our party of 6. The food was delicious, especially the dumplings and noodles. While a little pricey, I would definitely consider coming back.
It was 2:30pm on a Tuesday. I had requested a quiet table for myself, as my week had started rough and I just wanted a nice meal and drink to relieve my stress. The hostess took me to a nice table, where I was distanced from what looked like a "sweet 16" birthday lunch. As I studied the menu, an adorable family of three was seated two tables away from me. They had a small baby, probably less than a year old. That was fine, I continued with the menu. Until I noticed something. The baby. It was staring at me. I tried smiling at first, hoping it would smile back. It didn't. I was uncomfortable. I got up and told the waitress I'd rather sit in the bar. She happily showed me to the over-21 area. The bartender was helpful. Best pork buns in Seattle.
We had a late dinner on a Monday night so there wasn't a wait. We got seated immediately. Our server was really friendly and attentive. This is not our first time here. Food is consistently decent and up to standards every time we visit. Would come back again.
Very tasty. Friendly fast service. Our food was out quickly but well paced. Tons of choices. Nice modern take on Dim Sum. The seating area is much larger than it looks from the outside.
Green bean and broccoli sautéed with garlic is the best! Tried the chicken, veg and fish dumplings! Of the three chicken was good! Fish was definitely okay! Place was crowded for Wednesday afternoon but managed to get a table! No reservations

The food here is fantastic. Everything is cooked up hot and fresh. My favorite is the Mandarin chicken, it's unbeatable. The place could stand to be sweeped up more regularly. However, overall a wonderful Chinese, Sichuanese neighborhood restaurant.
I've been coming here for the last 9 years, especially for the Chongqing chicken, stir fried bitter melon with pork, chives with eggs, and their hot pot! Each friend and family member I brought here have now addicted to the same stuff. Mission accomplished!
Great food, fast service. Very authentic Chinese food plus owner has very cool Ghibli canvas prints!
Consistent, quick, well-priced and a personal favorite.
Got take out here near our Air BNB, and WOW were we glad we did! Get the special Chinese greens! The MaPo tofu is excellent.

This place was ok. The noodles were very large and it tasted so different! Nothing that of what I'm use too! It was my first time at pikes market and I wanted a memorable meal from pikes market place. I really enjoy Asian cuisine. But I did not enjoy this place. I feel like it was a waste of money and I would not go again.
I liked this place as kinda a hole in the wall sort of place to get to that my son brought me out to. Kinda greasy for my liking I had a Chicken sandwich, it was hard figuring out what I was ordering. There was a bit of communication trouble- the guy taking my order placed the people beside me on my credit cards and asked them to give me cash.
Even during peak lunchtime, my food was made and arrived quickly. The Dry Noodles are delicious and pretty spicy. If the dish came with more chicken I would give this 5 stars.
I am not a fan of spicy food so at first didn't care for their flat bread sandwiches. Then found out if you ask they can make it less spicy after which I loved the food
Awesome little spot tucked away at Pikes place. Szechuan Flatbread has great flavor and the Flatbread is awesome - had some kick!

Liked coming to this place till I seen little bugs floating in my soup! To be honest I think they were roaches. This will be the last time I'll be eating in this establishment.
The food was good and reasonable price but my daughter had allergy reaction to the good even though we told them she has Sea food allergy. The menu said to let them know if you have food allergy. Be careful if your kids have seafood allergy. My daughter took two Benadryl after only taking one small bite.
One of the few good Chinese restaurants in Seattle. Good congee and wonton noodles. Staff can be a little snippy.
The real deal. Chinese wait and kitchen staff and customers. Best won ton noodle soup we've had since China town Honolulu. The secret is in the broth.
The porridge is superb, and my wife like the dumpling noodle a lot. Price is very reasonable.

I've only ever had the bottomless hot pot here but it is always a winner. I've really put these guys to the test with large groups but they always do fine. Service could be a bit faster (namely with regards to refills of the meat which is seldom unless you ask them). Overall one of my favorite Asian spots in Seattle.
Hands down one of the best Chinese /Taiwan food. Service is amazing! Come back for hot pot or come eat family style. So good!!!
Cheap prices which is always a huge plus for me. According to their most recent food safety score (publicly available but under a different name), they didn't do so hot, but I didn't see any problems with my food while I was there. Portion sizes were filling and I definitely left satisfied (and with leftovers)!
Hot. Pot. Do yourself a favor and order the all you can eat hot pot. Spicy and curry were the flavors we chose, and they were both really good. Liked curry for the veggies and noodles, and spicy for meat and mushrooms. All in all it was great, we were not sure about all the side dishes since it was Taiwanese style, but they explained. Very helpful. Great meal.
Good service, great food. I did not try the all you can eat, but looks amazing. Everything is perfect here.
