    Practically growing up in Chinatown, Jade Garden is outstanding for dim sum. Very crowded, even during the week. But leave without having the sticky rice, and you're doing yourself a grave disservice.

    Sprawling layout, lots of room for groups of 5-10 people. Go before 11:00am for a much shorter wait, and call in to get your name on the list.

    Arguably the best Dim Sum in Seattle for around $10 per person. The restaurant is run-down and chaotic, but food is hot and fresh. Call ahead to put your name on the list. Read more

    This place is popular, the wait can be brutal. CALL AHEAD and check in when you arrive. Your name will be put on the list when you called, rather than when you show up.

    It's just a place to have some Cantonese foods. Not the gourmet flavor if you like me used to live in Hong Kong for a while, you should agree with me.

  • May R.

    This is the best dim-sum in Seattle! Be ready to wait for maybe 15 minutes during the lunch rush hour, but don't worry, the wait is worth it!

  • Seattle Met

    All right, so Seattle is no mecca for the Chinese small-plates-on-rolling-carts breakfast feast known as dim sum. That said, Joy Palace (see The True Taste of Asia) and Jade Garden do it best— Read more

    #66 with hot tea! So very good. Also if you are willing to spend the $$$ shark fin soup is to die for!

    Kim Hicks · November 6, 2012
  • Kayan H.

    Probably the best dim sum in Seattle, but that's not saying much. It's a bit pricey imo and if I ever have to wait in that ridiculous line I'd pass.

    Kayan Hargreaves · October 12, 2010
  • Chris C.

    You can eat yourself silly and still only pay $30. The custard buns are NOT to be missed!

    Chris Camargo · January 22, 2015
  • Naudia G.

    Great find! Open till 2:30 am mon-thurs, 3:30 on fri and say, and 1am on sun. Midnight Chinese is my favorite!

    Naudia Greer · May 17, 2012

    Half-decent dim sum. They do the bolo bau really well (crispy on the outside and with warm custard on the inside).

    Michelle · June 7, 2014
  • Ricardo H.

    Food is good. Place a little dirty; found hair in one of my dumplings. Waitresses are rude and don't speak English so get prepared.

    Ricardo Hernandez · December 6, 2015
  • Clau V.

    Guess I'm the only one that thinks this place sucks! Some dishes are kinda ok, but the service is so bad!! And it was so crowed, not worth the wait!

    Clau Vinatea · December 25, 2012
  • Katie Y.

    Gets CRAZY busy for dim sum but there's a good reason why! Solid dim sum choice with all your favorite usual dishes

    Katie Yamada · July 23, 2015
  • Hubert B.

    Best dim sum I've tasted since my days in SF. Shumai and hargow are staples but they have great flavor.

    The crowds certainly don't come for the decor, but brave the masses and you will be rewarded with some of the city's best dim sum. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Massive lines and a long wait during peak times, but so worth it for the best din sum in Seattle

    Jen · May 13, 2014
  • Christine T.

    Don't be one of those people waiting in the crazy crowd - top gun in factoria is superior! Or there are other less crowded places in ID!

    Evidently there's not a lot of great dim sum in SEA. This place, however, does wonders in a pinch.

    Geoffrey Brown · December 10, 2015
  • Sabrina S.

    The best turnip cakes in sodo! If you get there before 11 there is much less of a wait.

    Sabrina S. · August 23, 2014
  • Snap Krackle P.

    Try the Dim Sum - So good...! I always ask for 3 orders of their Pan Fried Sesame Shrimp!

    Snap Krackle Pop · October 17, 2012
  • Sharon

    Tried their Calamari. Nahhhh. Order Calamari at sushi land. Tastes way better and good value !!

    Sharon · July 7, 2012
  • Snap Krackle P.

    Try the Pan Fried Shrimp and Chive Dumpling - So good, we always request a 3 order minimum!

    Snap Krackle Pop · October 24, 2012
  • Sabrina S.

    Fantastic selection of dim sum, the fried sticky rice is to die for when they have it.

    Sabrina S. · October 29, 2014
  • David Z.

    The dim sum is great, and don't sleep on those walnut shrimp!

    David Zhang · November 8, 2015
  • LL L.

    If you don't speak their language, you'll get skipped. This is coming from an Asian person. Rude and not worth my time.

    LL Lam · July 21, 2014
  • Adam M.

    Dim Sum is where it's at -- order anything with shrimp (honey walnut shrimp is outrageous).

    Adam Matherly · August 15, 2009
  • Grace K.

    Dim sum is good!!! But restaurant itself is small and looks not so clean

    Grace Kung · January 9
  • Sharon

    Go to OAsian or Top Gun for dim sum!! They are still my favorite after many years and many tries. Sorry Jade Garden!

    Sharon · July 7, 2012

    Cheap, greasy Chinese food that everyone will enjoy. Very hectic atmosphere.

    I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. I had a terrible experience. It eas the only bad part of my trip.

    Dionne McLaughlin · June 25, 2013

    Be careful washing your hands in the bathroom. The hot water is extremely HOT, don't burn yourself.

    Justin Tran · June 30, 2013

    I second the sticky rice in banana leaves! I crave it ALL THE TIME.

    Jessica Diamant · March 12, 2010
  • Thomas T.

    Watch out for the wait during peak hours. Food is so worth it

  • nayo s.

    Sooo good!!! Definitely ask for the steamed greens!

    nayo satterlee · January 1, 2014
  • Loke Uei T.

    The steamed tofu wrap & the shrimp "cheong fun" is DA BOMB!

    Loke Uei Tan · October 19, 2009

    The Baked Bao and the Custard Things are amazing! :-)

    Erik · October 23, 2011

    Not the best dim sum and the service isn't great either.. go to New Hong Kong just around the corner!

    Lyssa Ashlee · October 2, 2011

    Inexpensive Dim Sum. Get to sit at a big table with strangers

    Nann B · March 1, 2013

    Ask if you can share a table (< 4ppl) to speed up the wait
