    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.

    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!

    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

    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.

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