Tamarind Tree or Green Leaf (International District) for excellent Vietnamese;
Pho Bac (several locations) for steaming hot cheap and delicious pho;
Szechuan Noodle Bowl (International District) - all noodles and dumplings housemade daily, all dishes around $5 or less - try the spicy vegetarian dumplings, the spicy beef tendon noodle soup, and the green onion pancake;
Thai Tom (U District, and worth the trip) for Thai;
Malay Satay Hut (International District);
if you're willing to drive to Bellevue, Udupi Palace (Tamil/S. Indian) and Szechuan Chef are also worth the trip.
If you have a car, also worth checking out are the Salvadorean Bakery (White Center), plus there's lots of great Korean food in Lynnwoood and Edmonds.
