Iron Chef

4301 S. Meridian
Puyallup, WA 98373

Looking for an interactive hibachi experience to keep the whole family entertained? Our REALTOR® Trish Stone has the place for you: Iron Chef.

“It’s a 'cooked at your table' Japanese restaurant that is just as entertaining as it is delicious,” Trish shares. “It keeps kids entertained even if the service isn't at their table and may even encourage them to eat their dinner!”

REALTOR® Vic Jones agrees, adding points for good service and value.

You’ll find numerous combos to choose from, all made to order, as well as sake to keep the experience authentic. The menu includes vegetarian options and a variety of wine and cocktails. (Who couldn't love a restaurant with a Shirley Temple featured on the menu?)

Karma Indian Cuisine And Lounge

12623 Meridian Ave. E
Puyallup, WA 98373

“They have delicious vegetarian Indian food. I get the veg korma, and garlic naan. Their mango lassi is also delicious,” says REALTOR® Keryn Giguere. And it sounds like it’s a real destination in and of itself. “It’s the only reason I venture into Puyallup!”

The service is always nice, and comes complete with mood lighting, says Keryn. The menu features a variety of curries, soups and salads, and 16 different kinds of Indian breads.

A staple in the community for 20 years, Karma offers a complimentary meal on the last Tuesday of every month for members of the military, police, firefighters and veterans.

Bar Bistro

1718 99th St. E
Tacoma, WA 98445

While technically it has a Tacoma address, Bar Bistro is near the South Hill neighborhood and it's a can’t-miss spot (so let’s go with it!).

Our Puyallup Branch Manager and REALTOR® Patty Golob highly recommends it: “Delicious menu and beautiful bar with plenty of specialty martinis!” says Patty!

The menu features popular standards like salads, street tacos and burgers with their own twist, plus more interesting dishes like paella, five spice roasted duck and spicy prawns. And who needs Mardi Gras when you can order up peanut butter and jelly beignets right here? Bar Bistro gets our stamp of approval!

Bonus: A Tasty “Hometown” Chain, Black Angus

203 35th Ave. SE
Puyallup, WA 98374

It’s a little tough to call a restaurant with locations from Washington down through California and into Arizona and New Mexico a local spot. But it was founded just up the road in Seattle, and REALTOR® Patti Connolly seems to love it, so we’re calling it a bonus pick!

“Black Angus across from the South Hill mall has great food and plenty of room for dinner parties!” says Patti. “They have a nice little bar if you're looking to unwind or have drinks with friends.” One of her favorite things on the menu is the campfire special for two.

The menu features a selection of grilled standards plus lots of starters to enjoy with friends.
