Best Restaurants in Pike Place Market
My wife and I love korean food and
eat it whenever we can. Chan's food was elegant and delicious, but was missing some of the 'soul' of a traditional korean restaurant. We would recommend as an excellent intro to Korean food for people not used to the cuisine and for folks who love Korean food and are nearby."

Chan is always great - great food,
great drinks, and great service."

I went here with my boyfriend for
his birthday. I wouldnt reccomend for a special occasion. Service was rushed, although they came to fill my water every 5 minutes which was nice sinceit was SO HOT. This place really needs to invest in air conditioning. We were seated in the middle of the restaurant and both my boyfriend and I were dripping with sweat. Overheated= low appetite. It is as though they have no ventilation for the kitchen so the heat saturates the kitchen."

Had an opportunity to try some
more courses. The beef tartare was exquisite. The bibimbap was also really good. The braised pork was a little crispy on the edges for my liking but I find it difficult to fault them for that. We were assigned a secluded table for two and found it difficult to catch the waitresses attention, but it was close to closing time. one minor hiccup doesn't take away from an overall enjoyable dining experience."

We sat at the counter and had a
personalized experience directly with the chef. The food was superb and the small area with the soft lighting and beautiful decor set the mood perfectly."

Chan Seattle's sign describes it
as "Modern Korean Fusion." Having lived in Korea for 1 year, I was disappointed to discover that Chan was (surprisingly) more traditional than I was hoping for. Nonetheless, the menu at least represents Korean food in a fun and flavorful way. The tartare is a playful reference to Yukhoe, a traditional raw-beef Korean dish, that was appreciated. The Stuffed Yubas were also a tasty fusion dish that was not really Korean at all, but it didn't really matter. The cauliflower was unevenly seasoned, the ssam wraps were good, and the remaining dishes we had (japchae and chicken wings) were tasty, but not particularly memorable or unique in their execution. Overall, it's still cool to get Korean in this part of town."
Dined on 7/2/2014
We love Chan. We don't get there
as often as we like, but are always happy when we do. We always have the wings and the escolar and then vary our mains (which are always wonderful). And their drinks are great as well. Definitely a great place for dinner, but definitely make reservations."

For years we passed by wanting to
try your restuarant. Disappointed for not coming in sooner. But very happy that we did. We will be back!!!!"
Dined on 6/28/2014
Food was absolutely wonderful! If
I lived in Seattle this would be a place I would frequent. Everything we ordered was something to rave about!"

This is a great little spot
snuggled in the courtyard of the Inn at the Market. I really enjoyed both their happy hour and dinner items. The fried rice cakes were unusual but had great flavor. Their chicken wings were delicious as was the braised short ribs. The only item I wasn't as fond of was the pork belly, which was good but not nearly as good as all the other items. Great little gem. Will definitely visit again soon."
Dined on 6/27/2014
I'm Korean so my standards may be
different. The food here has decent flavor but comes up short in taste. The prices are high for Korean and they charge extra for getting rice (which is unacceptable to Koreans). I can't fault the prices as their rent must be pretty high. I'm not a fan of Revel either. If you want good korean, go authentic. This "made for" American people menu is not great. The server was cute and attentive."
Dined on 6/19/2014
I've been to Chan before, and I
love the different flavors. "
Dined on 6/6/2014
The food was excellent. Our
foodie friends from out of town loved it. We discovered this restaurant on a food tour last summer. We knew we had to try this place on our own and it was everything we had hoped it would be."
Dined on 6/6/2014
We don't eat Korean food often
(read almost never) but when I read the reviews for this place I wanted us to try it. Modern-Korean sounded delicious so we decided that we would make a reservation. We had a number of dishes, including pork belly, seafood, noodles etc and everything was very good. The one item that did not really stand out and could be something that was quickly pulled together at home was a salad (with cabbage etc). The place was way smaller than I thought it would be but that was not a problem as we were starving and a delicious Asian meal fit the bill"

After reading about Cha:n in the
Seattle Times on 2 occasions, I was very excited to check it out the next time we were in Seattle. It did not disappoint. The food was amazing. While the restaurant is billed as "modern Korean fusion" we stayed primarily with the Classic Korean recipes. The Kimchi and pork belly was the best I have ever has in the US or in Korea. The seafood pancake, served in an iron skillet, was equally fantastic. My wife's favorite Korean dish is chapjae and it was the best we've ever has, as well. As for the "modern fusion" we did start off with a very tasty spring salad with a variety of vegetables and the flight of flavor infused soju was a very fresh and interesting take. The service was also outstanding. "

We were visiting Seattle for the
weekend and saw that Chan had been highly rated in the Seattle Times. Even with high expectations, we were very impressed. The food was unique and we loved every dish we ordered. We had our two kids with us (9 and 7) and the chef was very accommodating in going mild on the spices for a couple of dishes. The atmosphere is cool/casual and service was very good. "
Dined on 5/17/2014
The food was great. Not strictly
traditional Korean style dishes, so you can't really compare it that way, the dishes we had were all really great as their own creations though. Good service too!"
Dined on 5/9/2014
My husband and I went to South
Korea a few years ago and fell in love with the food there. For his birthday this year I thought to try something new and not go to our favorite place I searched for Korean restaurants in Seattle. This came highly recommended and I now know why! We at probably half the menu and shared everything between 5 people. We were all full and happy. Really high quality and delicious! "
Dined on 5/3/2014
All I have to say is that if you
walk in to a Korean restaurant and there are actual Koreans there, that's a good sign, amazing food, great atmosphere, small spot perfect for date night"
Dined on 4/19/2014
For my first time visiting Cha:n
it was amazing and I loved all the food we order and the drinks we had were all so well made and the rum punch with the hand squeezes juice was a good suit to the drinks!! I definitely am coming back and telling my friends about this place!! :)"
Dined on 4/5/2014
Everything that my husband ordered
was absolutely phenomenal. We had the Ahi Tuna, the Bulgogi Sliders, the Chicken Wings, the Bibimpap, and the Kimchi Jar. Everything tasted fresh and was full of flavor. All the food was outstanding, but the chicken wings and the Bibimpap were our favorite! The drink menu had a lot of fun cocktails and both my husband and I enjoyed the drinks we ordered. The service was awesome as well! I have already recommended this restaurant to friends whom I know will visit Seattle as we live an hour away!"
Dined on 4/4/2014
The staff were super nice and
friendly. Was very patient explaining the food and offering recommendations. We were promptly seated and served. Food was delicious. Would definitely come again"
Dined on 3/28/2014
Best Kimchi I've have ever had. A
great twist to Korean food with very generous portions. What a treat to have new awakening to the palate. Very small but cozy restaurant with friendly staff."
Dined on 3/25/2014
Our group of 5 had a wonderful
first time experience. We made reservations with the table ready when we arrived. The service was prompt and our server guided us through the menu. Everyone was very friendly. We started with appetizers from the happy hour menu. We ordered the beef sliders, pork sliders, yubas (2), fried rice cakes (2), tuna tartare, and the chicken wings. All were very good. We didn't have time to order a main dish but the happy hour feast was sufficient. We each had three adult beverages each. The hard ginger lemonade was a favorite. All of this including tip came to $40.00 each. We will be back."
Dined on 3/25/2014
We went with a group, ordered
almost the whole menu and shared everything... Delicous! The drinks were original made with their homemade bitters; and the tab was only $40 a person including tip! I will definitely go back."
Dined on 3/21/2014
There is nothing comparable to
Chan in Washington DC! Creative and affordable are both lacking where I live. Lucky for me, my son lives here so I have an excuse to visit. We made a reservation for 5 but still had a long wait. So best to go in groups of 2-4. We stuck to the favorites on Yelp: sliders, kimchi pork belly, kimchi paella, chicken wings + both desserts. All very tasty! My son ordered the ribs and found them dry. A friend ordered chicken confit and it seemed like a nice option."
Dined on 3/18/2014
Our dishes were savory and
delicious and were presented beautifully. The service is friendly, we had a wonderful dinner. Sit at the bar so that you can watch the chef create your meal. It shows that this guy likes to cook."
Dined on 3/15/2014
Awesome. Spicy pork sliders:
*perfect* brioche bun made this dish a comforting opening delight Ssam: Think "asian lettuc wraps". Beautiful presentation that carried a fresh-packed punch of flavor Skillet Bibimbap: Rich, and flavorful. Kimchi Jar: This $3 side should not be passed up. Tangy and spicy in a way that I found hearty Hangover Soup (no longer on the menu): If you must, BEG your server to bring you this dish. A beautiful warming kimshi-laced broth with veggies and pork(/) Rice beer ice cream: A wonderfully different desert that the three of us shared Really a genuinely friendly, patient, and knowledgeable server. Fun eating-centric vibe. Overall, a great little gem just outside of the Pike Place Market. You Gotta eat here"
Dined on 3/15/2014
A little place tucked into one of
the alleys by Pike Market. This is not your everyday "ethnic" restaurant: it is Urban Korean fusion, and it doesn't stink on spice. Expect exquisitely prepared yet affordable and substantial dishes: a seafood ramen that is perfectly cooked and short ribs that melt in the mouth even as they sets off heat sensors. A ginger laced Crème Brule at the end offers a soothing touch. Don't go here if you are shy about chilis or if you want a tranquil quiet setting. Do go there if you want a taste of contemporary Seoul."
Dined on 3/13/2014
This little place is tucked down
an alley right by Pike's Place Market. If you didn't know it was there ... you probably wouldn't. It's a tiny place but it's super cute. It even has an open kitchen so sitting at the bar is an experience! They also do an awesome happy hour and if you sit at the bar you can order off that happy hour menu anytime! Great place, great food, great atmosphere!"
Dined on 3/12/2014
The food was flavorful and
slightly better than typical $10 per entree korean tofu houses (which are also very good). Be prepared to wait 45 minutes for your entree though. The restaurant is small and during my visit there was a large table of 15-20 people which completely tanked the operations of the restaurant. I wish the servers took our order (we were a party of 2) before the group of 20 people. That one decision probably made the difference between my waiting 15 minutes and waiting 45 minutes for food. My wife and I could barely hear each other in the restaurant, and I think this had to do with the large group. When the food did eventually come it was great, I had the chicken wings and the seafood ramen and the bibimbap."
Dined on 3/8/2014
Came here because we saw it on
Dine out Week. The food is good quality, but the majority was a bit too spicy. A couple of more options with no spicy hot would have been better."
Dined on 3/4/2014
The best wat to dine is to share
selection from as many categories as you can. Braised short ribs and fried rice cake are a must."
Dined on 3/1/2014
My boyfriend and I went for
Valentine's Day and got the pre fix meal, which was a great deal at $30/person. It was a pleasant surprise that the meal included everything off the list (8 dishes plus a dessert), rather than the standard practice of having to select one item from each course. We loved everything. My favorites were the bi-bim-bap and the braised short rib, and my boyfriend's were the ahi (which usually isn't his kind of thing) and the bulgogi sliders. On top of that, the service was so friendly and attentive. We can't wait to come back!"
Dined on 2/14/2014
We went to Cha:n Restaurant as a
last minute evening out. The food was delicious, the space was elegant and the service was very good. The ahi tuna tartar was fabulous. The persimmon salad was a refreshing complement to the rich pork belly and sliders. Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back."
Dined on 2/8/2014
Great, authentic Korean food.
Really enjoyed the Saam and traditional skillet dish with spicy pork. Service was outstanding. A nice little restaurant tucked into Pike Place."
Dined on 2/7/2014
Excellent menu - anything on this
menu is good - even if you don't know what they are. Good happy hour special too. Fun place for a small group."
Dined on 1/31/2014
I love Cha:n. It's really my
favorite restaurant in Seattle. I finally had the kimchi jar and oh my. The trio of cabbage, daikon, and cucumber was all around goodness. That my friend was only the beginning. I ordered the braised short rib with a side of rice. Heavenly. Spicy. Yum! Each bite was packed with tender, spicy, and succulent meat and the rice cakes were so cute and delightful. I wish I had more to take home with me."
Dined on 1/18/2014
Everything we've had at Chan is
great. The Escolar was amazing. The chili caramel glazed wings are addictive. The sliders are great. Can't wait to go back. Reservations are a must."
Dined on 1/16/2014
Tucked in an urban mall corridor
this secretive spot is alive with terrific foo, great vibe, and the best happy hour (prices at the var run ALL night long!!@!) so pull up a bar stool order every starter on the menu (the oysters and the rice noodle are AMAZING) and settle in! Two of us old friend caught up for several hours, with attentive but not hovering service, 6 glassed of a delicious Pinot Noir and plenty of nibbles and the bill was <$65!!! Truly a delicious find!"
