Love this place. They have the best menu and the best ground duck lettuce wrap. Yummy. Their prices are most reasonable for such a romantic, upscale, and modern look restaurant.
Asked for Bigger Tip – I would have rated 0 stars. My friends and I went to dinner there, we split the check ourselves due to their policy, and left a 17% tip. The waitress came back over and proceeded to argue with us that we tipped under 10% because we all split the tip. I will never ever visit there again.
Not worth the money (overpriced) and the hassle of parking. – I went to this restaurant after reading some of the review.
First the place is so dark that if I ever go back there again which I doubt that I would I have to remember to bring along a flash light.
Secondly, they do not know anything about Chinese eating etiquette. One does not eat Chinese food off a plate. It is very bad manners to do that. Proper Chinese manner calls for putting the food in your bowl and eat it from the bowI and never from the plate which is for bones. I had to ask for the bowls.
I will not be going back there soon.
A rare good Asian restaurant in seattle, thank socialdealmap – I came to this place for dinner one month ago with a huge discount from Social Deal Map (socialdealmap com). I was not having high expectation at the beginning. But it turns out very good. I had ever been to Hongkong years ago, and their food is comparable to those Hongkong ones. Be sure to order their eight jewels hot pot. I like their king scallops as well.
The atmosphere is clean, quiet and warm
USED TO BE A FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT – I eat here a couple times a month. I would go more if I lived closer. This was one of the first places I would take friends if they arrived from out of town. In the past I didn't mind the poor service because the food is good and the restaurant is clean. I ate there today and accidently left my sunglasses. I called 20 minutes after I left the restaurant to see if they would hold them for me until I can get a chance to go back and pick them up. The curly haired manager said he could not find them, when they were in the middle of the table. I guess someone in their staff took "FINDERS KEPPERS" seriously. Dishonest people SUCK! They just lost a loyal customer forever. I hope they know that karma sucks, also. DO NOT DINE HERE!!!
Worst Service Ever – My friends and I went to O'Asian on the night of their wedding. What was supposed to be a extremely joyous occasion turned into an extremely frustrating one when we received the worst service I could have ever imagined. What made this even more ridiculous was the fact that we were literally the only people in the restaurant. I might almost understand if we had come in late and kept them open, but it was barely 6:00 pm!
From the moment we walked in, the manager at the front was extremely rude. This continued with every server we encountered throughout the evening. Anytime we asked for anything, (whether it was to order something, or simply ask for a fork) we were scoffed at and made to feel like we were bothering them. Again, we were the only people there! I would think they would have been a little happier to get the business.
I was extremely embarrassed, because the restaurant was my recommendation. All of the employees were angry and dismissive and could not seem to get us out fast enough. Now my recommendation is to stay away from this restaurant at all costs.
Always a happy hour treat – I've dined in for dinner only once and it was during the holiday season so the decor was lovely (especially the xmas tree) however the service was very lacking. That's the only time I've had a sub-par experience here. Other than that one negative dining experience, Happy Hour never lets me down!
Great Happy Hour til closing! – The bar is large, comfortable, and has $5 happy hour plates with generous portions. The happy hour menu is more than just dim sum and includes many choices that I haven't seen in restaurants in the International District.
Everything I've tried is fresh and hot and very good.
I've been there many times and never had a bad experience. Each time the food and drinks were served promptly with consistent quality. I love this place!
Great Atmoshpere – Staff always remembers my name and knows what I like and dislike, maybe that's because I am there often enough. Great looking people are always there and has a good feel about the place.
thought I'd give the place a try but wow didn't expect this – I've heard a lot about this place so decided to give it a shot. We came in and was greeted by the hostess and said it would be 30 minutes for a table. Great not that bad but what was odd was that only 5 or 6 tables/booths were full and the rest of the place was empty.
Walking to the bar, I noticed a table that was empty but dishes were still piled on it. We sat down at the bar and started chatting with the bartender. Great guy and good drinks.
25 minutes pass and we're told our table was ready so we moved to the table. Passing that previous dirty table, I noticed it was still piled up with the same dishes. Should've realized that was a dead give away.
We sat down and were given our menus. We got some water and then proceeded to wait, and wait, and wait. We kept on looking at our menus and started to drool, but still ended up waiting and waiting.
After 20 minutes of this, and trying to flag people down, we ended up closing our bill at the bar (heck he was the only one that gave us good service) and went to eat at Pomodoro's. Hostess watched us walk off, and didn't even ask. Wouldn't think she'd care either way so last time I'll ever go to this place.
Just wanted to be clear, this didn't happen in the last couple of days but occurred about 3-4 weeks ago. Don't remember specific dates but doesn't matter since won't be coming back anyways.
