Great service, great food, gorgeous and unusual desserts.
We eat here whenever we can. Wonderful Chinese food. Our favorites are the egg drop soup and Mongolian beef. It's in one of those corner mall locations next to a smoke shop, so on our first visit we were thinking "ordinary." WE WERE WRONG! We were pleasantly surprised at how fresh and tasty the menu is.
They have two large display sections for desserts, which are in the French/Asian style. Reminds me of my stay in Japan. They also have a wide selection of specialty drinks, including bubble drinks. Yummy!
We only wish the space was larger. The space is used effectively, but I think with a better location and more seating, more people would try it.
Busy lunch. Great fried noodles.. I agreed with the other reviewer that during lunch time, that place is too busy. I feel that I am always rushed to leave. I enjoy take out of "BBQ pork fried noodle" and a cup of bubble tea. Best combo ever. Yum!
Bad customer service but decent food. I do takeouts from this place because the food is decent but the customer service is terrible. The owner is arrogant and always in a hurry. Once I asked for medium spicy and they made the food so spicy that I could not eat it and when I compained they said that I should specify exactly how spicy etc.
Good food, decent prices.
Regent's has reasonably good Chinese food, with some unusual choices compared to your average places (steamed duck in noodles). I've gone several times for lunch and dinner. The half roast duck is a favorite among my friends (oily but very yummy), as is tomato beef.
The service is ok - the waiters are brief, to the point and don't seem to smile much, but I personally don't mind at all. The decor is reasonable for a tucked-away cafe, nothing spectacular. The prices are ok, for the duck noodles and a fruit tart I paid $16. My dish was fairly big and I ate about half.
The desserts, as everyone says, are quite good. The strawberry mousse cake is my favorite, and the chocolate mousse cake also gets rave reviews from my coworkers.
Great Food and Great Price. I always try the cake from Regent and always know that it is really great and delicious! I went for dinner with friends last night. It was my first time to try the dinner at Regent. It was surprisingly great!! It was really authentic Hong Kong style food. I really love the crispy noodle chow mein with BBQ Pork. My friend tried the Roast Duck noodle soup and it was amazingly great too! The BBQ Pork and Roast Duck were freshly made and tasted extremely well! Another friend also tried the fried tofu with mixed vegetables and it was also fresh and yummy! I would love to try other items on the menu. After dinner, of course we could not resist to have their cakes. My favourite is the mango mousse cake. It is just excellent. My friends tried the black forest and chocolate banana and it was great as expected too! I think the price are reasonable. I went to the H-mart mall in Lynnwood in the weekend and found out that the bakery items in Lynnwood is actually more expensive than Bellevue. I am just glad to live in Bellevue with Regent being around.
Amazing Fruit Cake - Everyone loves it!. My company ordered a big fruit cake for holiday party from Regent Bakery. It was so great!! Everyone loved the cake and asked where to order. I found that the cake was from Regent Bakery. I was so glad that it is close to my neighborhood in Overlake Bellevue. I just got a chance to check it out recently. There is much more variety, although I still like the fruit cake the most. The place is small and clean. I also got to try out the buns and bubble tea. Surprisingly great as well.
Bad customer service. So you go in because the cakes are highly recommended. Then you say are they worth the bad customer srevice? The taste of the cake pieces is very good and too bad it is the opposite of the treatment. What would you loose when you are nice to your customers, don't rush them, and be more organized?
Worst chinese place to go for food...go only if you want to be exploited. Food is good but the sevice is terrible. They treat you like you are the 3rd world country people begging him for food. The stuff they sell is not cheap. All they want is you pay the $ and get out of their face.... I wish the health official visit their shop and busted their license b/c of sanitory issues. Do youself a favour and have some pride in yourself. Walk 1 mintue to your left and have Vietenamise noodles instead. Your dignity is worth more than the price of an egg tart / bbq bun / cancer causing bubble tea chemical drink.
Nice food but arrogant owner. Food is really great. One of the best pastries, but owner or people working there are really arrogant. They need to learn how to be polite to customers.
