Going to Seattle

Suggestions are appreciated for the gamut, especially delis, Indian, & Thai. Also, please give input on one upscale dining experience.
Merci,
Mary

    I haven't lived in Seattle in over 7 years, however I can tell you that Indian and Thai restaurants are abound and you will most likely not be dissappointed. I had a friend from England living in Seattle who knew his Indian food. He used to go to Shamiana in Kirkland an eastside suburb. I am sure they are still around. I used to go to an excellent Thai Restaurant in Bothell, a northshore suburb called Thai Rama. For an upscale seafood experience, Ray's Boathouse is a must. Excellent Salmon. As far as deli's are concerned, unless you're looking for a good Asian deli, then...forget it, very hopeless. Awful! Awful! Awful!

    There's an extensive thread on Seattle, recent even, at http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=851

    Shamiana remains excellent for Indian. Thai has become ubiquitos (and mostly dreadful), but there's a place down by the airport where the Thai Airways crews stay that is suppossed to be divine. If you're interested, I'll try to dig it up.

    God do I love Seattle. Lets start with the Pikes Market-a foodies wet dream. Matts In The Market has the best lamb-yes lamb-chili ever and all round good food. The Pink Door is the only place I've ever been to that has a trapeze artist swinging overhead as you dine. Tom Douglas has 3 places-Ednas and I forget the other 2. Sea Catch is a good bet but if your in the international district check out the fab oriental grocery mega store-something like Ujamia. In pioneer square is Salumni owned by Malto Mario's parents-open only for lunch. Down on the water is Eliotts-they have about a zillion types of oysters. In Seattle you can't throw a dead fish without hitting some gr8 place.Have a wonderful time but beware of Interstate 5-be afraid be very afraid.

    Thanks for everyone's suggestions...we returned on Tuesday and had a great time noshing our way through Seattle. Desserts were amazing...Coconut pie at Dahlia Lounge, the unique & decadent Hot Fudge Sundae at the Icon Grille and Basil Cheesecake at the Mandalay Café. Great lunches at Noodle Ranch, Qazis, MSN-HQ and the Seattle Art Museum. Fab dinner at Wild Ginger, and 2 trips to the gelato store on 1st, Bottega Italiana, made the trip complete. Next trip we'll sample a bahn mi sammich, wish that we could have fit in more!
