Szechuan Bistro Greenwood SEA

Anyone tried it? I see they have the hand shaven noodles.

  1. I love this place. The noodles actually aren't my favorite - I find them too heavy - but they make the best darned dry-fried green beans with tofu, and the cumin lamb is fabulous, too. And for hardly any money you can feed a huge group of people and take home wonderful leftovers. The decor ain't much, but the family that runs the place is really nice and we've always had good service.

    1. where exactly is this place?

      1. It's on 85th, just west of Greenwood, directly across from Gordito's. I used to live near here and my favorite thing about it was definetly the delivery. They have decent hand shaved noodles, though I have found that the beef in their chow mein to be quite overdone. It's cheap and enjoyable. Recently I stopped by to try their hot pot and found it to be the least good of those that I have tried. Conclusion: A good place if you are in the neighborhood, but I wouldn't go out of the way....

        1. Try the "hot and spicy fish." That's exactly how it's listed on the menu. It's white fish perfectly poached in a very spicy broth/oil mixture. I love this dish! I second the recommendation for their dry cooked string bean, but don't get it with seafood - it comes with greasy fried fish. Ick. Go for the tofu version.

          1. I've also had really satisfying food from this place. A friend of mine used to live in the neighborhood, and we got food from there a bunch of times. You're right about the green beans, Freida. Yum.
