Sarah's Place (Authentic Northeastern Chinese)

In Chinatown on Bellaire by Sam Houston. It's in the plaza where Golden Market use to be (it's now under a new name). It's behind the Jasmine Restaurant, which we will be eating at on Jan. 12. When you drive in to the plaza, it's on the left hand side.

My husband will only eat about five restaurants there in Chinatown because he's picky on the food, and this is one of them. l love the sweet and sour fried fish, rice cakes with greens, red bean pancake, and stir fried fish with peas and red herbs. They have a few dim sum items as well as the regular Chinese dishes.

Reviews and Yelp and b4ueat are good and bad. Some are very old reviews. Cooks and management change at restaurants all the time. There's also competition posting bad reviews, so not always a good thing to trust these websites. We have been there numerous times and have been very happy.

    Delicious food and great company, as always. The lamb with cumin was so tasty that I got an order of it to-go for my family.

    Food was really good tonight. Hope everyone enjoyed the food and the restaurant. It was a bit noisy from the drunks celebrating Chinese New Year. I forgot it was this weekend when I booked. It's usually pretty quiet. hehe They were quite entertaining though.

      Your welcome Terri. Hope that everyone liked it enough to visit it again (minus the drunks). hehe

    The Shao Long Bao, wonton soup were especially delicious, and so were the salt and pepper pork. Also drunk people made the atmosphere entertaining.

      Hi Richard, you can either order your own dish, or you can join in with your table and share a bunch of dishes. You can get most typical Chinese dishes there, or you can try more authentic dishes. There are some pictures on yelp of some of the dishes. The quality is good and the place is clean.

    Hi Erin, I do not mind hosting the event. I'm assuming that means calling the restaurant to make sure they can accommodate everyone.

    • Erin

      I usually try to also send an email to all attendees.

      January 7, 2013
