A Seattle institution! Some of the best & most beloved Chinese food in Seattle. Located at the base of Queen Anne Avenue, Yu-Mei's Uptown China Restaurant is 1 block from Climate Pledge Arena & The Seattle Center. People come from near and far to partake in the savory Chinese cuisine, a combination of Hunan, Szechwan and a touch of Cantonese, with luscious tangy sauces that invigorate the natural flavors of the quality ingredients. We are also now showcasing a new plant-based menu for our vegan friends and for the vegan curious. It's a casual atmosphere, whether diners choose to eat in the cozy bar area or the family-friendly dining room. Over the years, the restaurant has built an eclectic clientele of all ages and backgrounds, a delightful mix of actors, dancers and musicians, athletes and sports fans, professionals and business moguls--and neighbors galore.

Now serving - in addition to our regular food - a full vegan, plant based menu.



A hands-on entrepreneur with a warm, smiling countenance and lots of style, owner Yu-Mei Wang likes to get to know her patrons, so the comfortable lounge becomes a living room. Every evening, she makes rounds, sitting down for a cozy chat with her customers. Regulars meet and greet each other like old friends. In fact, locals often describe the lounge area as the Chinese 'Cheers.' A big-screen television hangs above the small corner bar housing the congenial bartenders, while banquettes wrap around the outside walls and a coterie of small tables fill out the room. It's a relaxing ambience where you can dine, unwind over a refreshing cocktail or glass of wine, meet new friends and join in spontaneous conversations.
