Great neighborhood ethnic restaurants in Seattle

  • 1. Vios

    Greek Restaurant located on 19th Ave E and Aloha, with a unique and healthy menu (very different from the greasy moussaka found at most places!) and a homey play area for small children. Be warned that the place can be a little loud - lots of families come here - and that the large tables are meant to be shared among different groups.

  • 2. El Gallito
    El Gallito, Seattle, Washington

    Authentic Tex-Mex restaurant in Capitol Hill. There aren't very many quality Mexican restaurants in Seattle, but El Gallito is up to my personal standards. Try the guacamole enchilada and indulge in a margarita! The food here is inexpensive, and the atmosphere is very casual. Don't expect a fine dining experience by any means, but you can count on decent service and excellent food. Note: Some might consider the neighborhood a little iffy (I personally think it's fine).

  • 3. Marlai Thai Restaurant
    Marlai Thai Restaurant, Seattle, Washington

    Although the location is kind of out-of-the-way, a trip to Sandpoint is worth it for this gourmet Thai restaurant. Since it's Thai, the food is still relatively inexpensive, but expect to pay more than you usually would for a curry. You'll find it's worth the extra five dollars - especially if you order the Tom Yam Gai (chicken coconut milk soup). The atmosphere is elegant-casual, and there is a special room for large groups.

  • 4. Fuji Sushi
    Fuji Sushi, Seattle, Washington

    A popular restaurant in Seattle's International District and a Sushi lover's paradise. Good quality food, low prices, and an elegant-casual atmosphere make this a great place to take a date or a group of friends.

  • 5. Aladdin Falafel Corner
    Aladdin Falafel Corner, Seattle, Washington

    This is more of a take-out place than a sit-down restaurant, although there are a few tables crammed into the small space. I recommend getting a falafal sandwich and then eating it as you walk up and down University Way (or "The Ave" as the UW students call it). The falafals are freshly fried and the sandwiches are well-seasoned. Be careful - you may become addicted.

  • 6. Meskel Ethiopian Restaurant
    Meskel Ethiopian Restaurant, Seattle, Washington

    Seattle has a whole host of Ethiopian restaurants, but I like Meskel for it's unique flavors and cozy atmosphere. There is a nice outdoor eating area perfect for sipping honey wine and chatting with a group of friends. As with many Ethiopian restaurants, the service is very slow, so don't go here if you're in a hurry. Expect to sip on a drink (Harar beer or honey wine) for a while before getting your food. However, you will be rewarded with warm, fresh injera bread and spicy, great tasting entrees.
