  • The best place in International District Seattle: Hing Hay Park

    A small park in the center of Chinatown. Though you're not too likely to see old folks doing tai chi or playing checkers, it still has character.

    Central District restaurants nearby
  • Uwajimaya Village

    Uwajimaya Village

    600 5th Ave S
    M-Sa 8AM-10PM, Su 9AM-9PM. The commercial, if not cultural, hub of the I.D. is Uwajimaya Village, a huge Japanese supermarket with many smaller eateries and a branch of the Kinokuniya bookstore. If you need anything at all from Japan while in Seattle, this is the place to find it.
    Downtown
  • Phnom Penh Noodle House

    Phnom Penh Noodle House

    660 S King St
    M-Tu,Th 9AM-8PM, F 9AM-8:30PM, Sa 8:30AM-8:30PM, Su 8:30AM-8PM, W closed. Cambodian noodles and rice dishes which are considerably more exciting than Al Gore, who appears in a photo with the owner.
    International District
  • Green Leaf Vietnamese Restaurant

    Green Leaf Vietnamese Restaurant

    418 8th Ave S
    If celebrity chef Mario Batali and the Iron Chef America Chairman can eat here, so can (and will) you.
    International District
  • House of Hong

    409 8th Ave S
    Su-Th 9:30AM-10PM, F-Sa 9:30AM-11PM. While more expensive, they do have parking on-site, which is a good clue that this is not very authentic. Their Lo Mai Gai is larger than other restaurants, as you are served only one bundle per order instead of the standard two or three. This makes sharing your Lo Mai gai awkward, and it tends to stick to the leaves in a glutenious unnatural manner.
    International District
  • Malay Satay Hut

    212 12th Ave S
    M,W-F 11:30AM-2:30PM and 5PM-10PM, Sa-Su noon-3PM and 5PM-10PM, Tu closed. Worth trying mango chicken.
    International District
  • Tamarind Tree

    1036 S Jackson St
    Su-Th 10AM-10PM, F-Sa 10AM-midnight. It is worth the awkward crawl through Seattle's steepest and most congested parking lot to relax with a Tamarind Soda next cool contempo style fountain. Tamarind Tree is an anomoly in Little Saigon, to say the least. Three Vietnamese brothers created an atmosphere that feels like it should be located in a Belltown Hotel rather than a Vietnamese ghetto. Tamarind Tree packs in more flavors for under $9 than any other restaurant. Try the Fish Paste with Bacon, or the Seven Courses of Beef. Be amazed at how high quality service, sauces, and appetizers can be served up artfully for Little Saigon prices. Eat your spring rolls with a side of fresh peanut sauce.
    International District
  • Fuji Sushi

    520 S Main St
    Lunch M-F 11:30AM-2PM, Dinner Su-Th 5PM-9:30PM, F-Sa 5PM-10PM. Open for lunch, just around the corner from Maneki. Smaller pieces, a bit pricer, but fresh and tasty.
    Downtown
  • Sichuanese Cuisine

    Sichuanese Cuisine

    1048 S Jackson St
    The name in Chinese is Lao Sichuan (Old Sichuan Restaurant). Great dry-fried beans with chicken. Simpler hotpot than at Seven Stars Pepper, with tasty dumplings.
    International District

The restaurant claims to be at least 100 years old, although it has moved since its estimated founding date in 1904, and is considerably smaller than the grand space it occupied prior to World War II. Their sushi pieces are very large, and their prices are very reasonable. Only open for dinner.
