      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)

        Monsoon East

        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)

          Also, the parking lot of the old Circuit City on 106th (now a Mars Hill Church) has become a daily food truck area.

          Monday is Snout & Co.
          Tuesdays is Fez
          Wednesday is Where Ya At Matt
          Thursday is Skillet
          And I'm not sure what's there on Friday now.

          Bis on Main for the lucky on expense reports. Same for Daniels....

            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
