Shopping Centre
“More than a mall, Crossroads is home to a unique food court and several restaurants surround the mall. It's a quick bus ride away from the Chef and Shipwright and you'll find most things you'll need from groceries to shoes.”

“Best Thai in the area, Crispy Garlic Chicken is the best (if I could still eat it), Bai Tong Special Noodles also phenomenal. Can get busy on Weekend nights, and a great lunch joint for Microsofties... just sayin.”

Cinema
“The theater is Bellevue's secret, and has spacious, luxury recliner seats at the regular theaters! It's more comfortable than the highly popular Lincoln square cinemas in Bellevue downtown, although has fewer movies screening.”

“Fantastic Italian coffee and decadent pastries. Wonderful french bread. Can eat in or bring back to enjoy later. ”

Dumpling Restaurant
$
“A great alternate of Din Tai Fung, considering its price and wait time. Dough Zone is such a darling of the area that there are now four locations on the Eastside and a fifth, with more modern styling, in Seattle’s International District. While dumpling and noodle quality has slipped due to centralization of the production process, this is still a decent place for all things doughy — including xiao long bao and the fried version, called Q-bao here — at fairly reasonable prices.”
