Cedars Indian Restaurant University District exterior
For more than 40 years, Cedars Restaurant has been serving authentic Indian, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine from our historic Seattle Heritage Home on Brooklyn Avenue in the University District.



The flavors of India, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean are now available on First Hill with the Broadway location of Cedars Restaurant. After serving our delicious food in the University District for more than 40 years, Cedars has added this second location on Broadway.


Our Story

We’ve been a family owned University District Staple for over 40 years. Serving authentic Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine prepared with fresh ingredients, we’ve become known for our Butter Chicken, variety of Naan and Chai.

We strive to make every guest feel like a member of our family as they sit around a table in the historic Seattle Heritage Home that houses Cedars Restaurant.

Fresh Ingredients

Our menu is based on the freshest, carefully-sourced ingredients, many drawn directly from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Singapore, and New York. Our blends of organic spices make for a nuanced flavor that cannot be imitated—our menu is one of the reasons we’ve been in business for over 40 years!

We proudly make 14 different types of naan in our authentic Tandoor oven, which is also used to create other succulent dishes like our famous tandoori chicken tikka. We have a wide variety of vegetarian options—including the delicious Indian cheese Paneer—and proudly stand behind everything on our menu. Come in to Cedars for a dish of curry, a lamb kebab, a masala or vin-daloo, and finish it off with a cup of our bottomless chai tea!
