For over twenty years, this spot has been providing the area with authentic Sichuan-style Chinese food. The large portions and relatively inexpensive prices have us loving this homestyle Chinese restaurant. The original founder, Chef Kao, still imports his signature ingredients and spices of Sichuan so that he can continuously deliver the best dishes possible.

Voted the best Chinese restaurant in Seattle by the UW Chinese Students Association, both locals of the city and Chinese immigrants alike rave about Chiang’s Gourmet. The unique architecture and wall art of the exterior is the preview to the casual but high-end interior. Focused on authentic Szechuan cuisine, Chiang’s homemade noodles are a staple of the menu that you don’t want to leave without trying.
