Worst Asian food! – My friend and i wanted to try this place since we like asian restaurants and we were in the neighborhood, and this one was the Worst! The interior is very old and dusty, it needs a spring cleaning and just that was a big turn off.
I ordered 'broccoli + beef'. The broccoli looked half yellow, which of course wasn't attactive. Then I raised one up to my nose and it smelled like it was freezer burnt or old. I wasn't about to eat it. The beef was grisly/chewy. i had a few bites of that. The sweet and sour soup was just fine and i ate that up. The waitress seemed to run quickly by us, and asked other people how they're food was, but never asked us as our full plates sat there barely touched. My friend got a seafood dish and after a few bites said that this food had msg in it. I didn't think much about that.
We decided to take to food with us to throw away because we just didn't trust that it wouldn't be re-served to some other person. Later on that night, i started getting very thristy, and peed like crazy, and my friend told me that was the msg, draining your body of all liquids. The next day, i felt weird and had a headache, that took until the afternoon to go away. I've had food with msg before, but this was ridiculous.
My friend and I would NEVER go to this restaurant again.

20 year veteran never had a bad anything here,
Go! Enjoy one of Seattles best kept secretes.
Maybe it should be called REDwood, not Green? – The food is decent, but nothing to rave about. I wonder why one cannot see in through the windows since the shades are drawn? It has the look of a Korean restaurant.
Recently (Mar 2006) they had trouble with the King County Public Health. 130 violations, include many red line violation, so be careful out there! Most restaurants get violations, but come on, 130?
Try Szechuan Bistro on 85th St N, just west of Greenwood. I love their eggplant, and spicy handshaven noodles.
Authentic Mandarin style cooking – Because various fresh sauces and vegetables are used to prepare every dish, I always look forward to my visits to Greenwood Mandarin. Dishes can be requested with/out preferred ingredients. Lunch is a good option for trying various items on menu. If you like Chinese soups (like Egg Flower and Hot and Sour) - this place offers the best in Seattle. Vegi deluxe with chicken breast and vegi fried rice is superb; General Taos * 4 stars* is full of endless flavor. I love this place and every person I introduce to this restaurant usually become regulars.
Local chinese restaurant – Good local Chinese food, tend to err on the greasy side.
Yum yum, wait, did I say yum? – The Greenwood Mardarin is by far my faviorite Chinese place to eat. We go there for almost all of our families birthday dinners. One of our faviorite menu items is the sizzling rice soup, paired with the mooshoo pork you are set for a night of great eats.
