My friend and i were passing this place as we were heading to the Space Needle and devided to try this restaurant on our way back for dinner. The waitress was rude. Asked us if we wanted a drink or if waters ok? We had water as it was obvious that she didnt want to make us a drink. We ordered two noodle dishes and the mixed fish cakes. We waited over 45mins, until the male waiter came over to apologise for the wait and offeres us a free thai iced tea which we took up the offer. He came back with ONE ices tea! When the food finally came out, he then proceeded to tell us that the cook had to make the fish cakes as he ran out! Why not tell us this at the start? We could have ordered something else!! You could tell some had ran out. Some of the cakes were so small, bit size!
The female waitress was THE worse. Giving us cutlery but placing it st the other end of our table. Same with the mints. Did not speak to us once and we had to ask her to come over to take our order! Dont go here!!!!

While walking around Seattle, we found the Fish Cake Factory! Try the fish cake sampler. And the carrot cake patty is yummy.

Who knew there were so many varieties of fish cakes? Not us! What a wonderful find this restaurant is! Located in Belltown, the choices were endless. We ordered the California fish cakes, chicken satays and the sweet corn and ground pork cakes. Had to finish off this perfect meal with mint chip ice cream and bitter chocolate icecream. Perfection! Reasonably priced, cute little restaurant...

Small little restaurant in nice neighborhood with great idea/menu of multiple fish cake combinations plus Thai dishes. Get there early for happy hour pricing as an added bonus.

Service was a bit slow, but there was only one waiter for 6+ tables. It really wasn't an issue because we were leisurely dining, but if in a hurry, this is not your restaurant.

Went here today 6/30/13 for lunch. Ordered their crispy trout salad. I was told that it might take longer than usual as they only had 1 cook today. Waited for over an hour, still didn't come. A SALAD !!! ...Over 1 hour wait then told the waiter that I wanted to cancel the order. He said it's coming and I insisted to cancel the order and walk away.

What a dumb management to have only 1 cook on one of the busiest days in Seattle as it was a Pride weekend! ... Obviously they don't need to survive the business !
