Recommendations in Bellevue for Lunch
Bellevue covers a pretty wide area...I'll mention some others outside of the downtown core area.
Spiced for Sichuan
Sushi Maru for upscale-ish kaiten sushi
Mayuri - Indian
Spice Route - Indian
Mon Ga for Taiwanese
Little Garden for Hunan and Sichuan
Joi's for dim sum
Top Gun for dim sum
Taqueria los chilangos
Taqueria el rinconsito
If the temperature ever gets below 70 anytime soon:
Little Fat Sheep for Chinese hot pot
Swish Swish for Chinese hot pot
Some others that haven't been mentioned from the downtown core area. From cheapest/least fancy to most expensive:
Rice & Spice (a little take out Thai place just north of the Downtown core. Currys are good. The "Zion Chicken" is great. Solid prices)
Garlic Crush (Good gyros/shwarma/souvlaki, but love the meat plate)
Koral (they're actually doing some interesting things. They're aspirationally Seattle in what they're trying. For example, I don't know anyone else in Bellevue that would try putting bone marrow on their menu)
Joey's (recently back on my list. As I wrote below, their french dip is my new favorite lunch in Bellevue, but it's $17...)
John Howie (Still a winner. every few months they intro a new sandwich that's usually great. And their bacon cheeseburger is a great standby. Hell, I'd probably love it just for the free gougeres)
I've been off Daniels recently. Great view, but the food is officially lacking.
I used to love their daily special prime rib sandwich, but Joey's downstairs from there now makes one of the most delicious beef sandwiches (in the guise of a french dip) that I've had.
For food in the steakhouse realm in Bellevue, I'm definitely choosing John Howie over Daniel's these days.
Ditto on Bamboo Garden and Facing East. Those are my two favorites.
Din Tai Fung if you have the time to wait.
Lot No. 3 for a hearty non-asian lunch with good cocktails
Tap House Grill for better than average bar & grill food with a great beer list.
Moksha (Indian at Bellevue Square) is pretty good for lunch too with the Thalis
