25178 review-place-overrated-getting-4-star place-overrated-getting-4-star http://www.szechuannoodlebowl.feedback/review-place-overrated-getting-4-star 6 6 6 0 2 -2 This place is overrated by getting a 4 star, not sure if people coming here don't normally have authentic chinese food or if the rating is based on the pretty decent service (for a Chinese restaurant). Regardless, growing up in Taiwan and a lover of taiwanese/chinese restaurant, i'd say this place is a 3 stars. Don't get me wrong -- I had a pleasant time here and I enjoyed the food, I just don't understand why Szechuan Noodle Bowl gets a 4 star while some other better restaurants get a 3-star. Either way, Service is good and the food is good, but not amazing compared to other restaurants in Seattle. Green Onions / Scallion Pancake (4.5): Probably the best dish I ordered here. There's a great crunch to the pancake skin and just enough filling in the pancake to really get the perfect blend of soft and crunch. Highly recommend this as a must order! Szechuan Spicy Beef Noodle (3.5): The broth was alittle bit too spicy for me, and it wasn't exactly the szechuan numbing spice that i enjoy. It was more like regular Chinese spice, not Szechuan spice (for those that know what I mean). The beef brisket was delicious though! Wonton Noodle Soup (4): I liked it. I liked the wonton and the simplicity of the dish, although I would appreciate more depth in the broth. However, If i were to come back here, I would order the wonton noodle soup. Hot and Spicy Dumpling (2): Not hot and spicy at all, more sweet and sour. It was overpowered by Vinegar and the meat within the dumpling was a bit too sweet for my taste. I grew up with a grandma who made and sold hundreds of thousands of dumplings, so im pretty picky about my dumpling. The Szechuan Noodle Bowl dumpling skin was too thick and them eat was too sweet -- HUGE dumplings though! Overall, their homemade noodles is pretty thick and not as QQ as I like. The dumpling skin is also a bit thick. However, I appreciate homemade food so i liked that they homemake everything. Prices were reasonable although portions are on the smaller side compared to other Seattle restaurants. If you're in the area and looking to eat here, do so. You won't regret it, just don't come here thinking it'll be the best chinese restaurant in town because of the rating. <p>This place is overrated by getting a 4 star, not sure if people coming here don&rsquo;t normally have authentic chinese food or if the rating is based on the pretty decent service (for a Chinese restaurant).
