AMAZING FOOD – I live in North Bend, and often visity my parents in Seattle. Everytime I go to see them we always go here! Amazing food, very authentic and great service. My parents always take visitors here as well! I'm not sure what the last person who wrote on here was thinking, they must not have looked in back for parking! Isn't that normal in Seattle?!?!
Be careful about going into this place! The parking is the smallest and most bumpy in the front, the interior is so small that you will have to squeeze yourself in. The carpet is so dirty that you don't want to look at it (I don't think it's been cleaned for the last year or two), the flower vase on the wall is going to fall any minute, and some of the items are over fried, some are tasteless. Most of all, how do you feel about going into a place that is so dirty and that might serve you food with hair?
Best chow mein – I went for the dumplings, but stayed for the chow mein. BBQ pork chow mein to be exact. Delicious and packed with pork and veggies. One order was more than enough for 2 people with dumplings on the side. We had enough leftover for lunch the next day. Not very expensive either! Owner is really friendly and will definitely advise you on the menu. I would recommend take out for the chow mein just because the place is so small. Seems a lot of people have that idea as several stopped in to pick up while we were there.
YUMMY, CHEAP – I ate there with 5 friends for dinner, food was really good, and cheap. Service was excellent: attentive waiter, and it only took 5 minutes to get our order ready!!! Very recommended if you like chinese food. I'm not a big fan of dumplings, but I really like theirs :)
Worst Service Ever! – We arrived at this place 40 minutes before closing time and was not allowed to be seated even when there was a table available. Something about a policy of not allowing 2 people to sit a larger table and that we would have to wait for a small table to open up, but by the time one would open up they won't be able to seat us plus would not let us order out saying there were too many orders already. So basically they didn't want our business. No customer service at all. Their dumplings are not that good to be treated this way.
Good, cheap Chinese food. – This is a tiny restaurant with fabulous dumplings. The garlic sauce that goes on the dumplings is so good! Be prepared to have your whole party share the sauce, though, because the garlicky flavor doesn't go away for a while! A couple other dishes we had (BBQ Pork fried rice, tofu spinach egg flower soup) were also good. The fried rice has a nice hint of pepper, which makes it different. We also had the "chinese hamburgers". They were interesting, but not something I would get again. More of a novelty. We had great service. Be sure to either go on off-peak times, get take out, or be ready to wait, as there are only about 8 tables. The menu is limited, but the things we tried were definitely worth it! It is very inexpensive, too. For four dishes, our total was only $30 (including tip). Usually that price for Chinese food means that it's crappy and I get an upset stomach. But not this time! Definitely check it out!
Best Dumplings in Seattle – Best dumpling house in Seattle. Of course, this is the only dumpling house in Seattle that I know of. Decent dumplings but they don't dare to offer something much more difficult, like Shanghai dumplings, which nobody in Seattle does well.
If you want the best, go to Ding Tai Fung in Los Angeles (or Taipei, Tokyo, Shanghai). For those of you not familiar with dumplings, try this place. Good introduction to them.
Great Food but horrible service – This place has the best potstickers! The waiter aka "The Dumpling House Nazzi" will make you want to get everthing TO GO! I watched the only waiter I've ever seen there "The Nazzi" accuse a teenage patron eating a meal out with what appeared to be her parents of placing a hair in her food as the hood on her coat had fur around it! I have also witnessed a mother with two young children ask the Nazzi if they could order an appetizer so that she could start feeding her children sooner rather than later and "The Dumpling House Nazzi" waiter told her that she would need to order her food all at the same time. I personally asked "The Dumpling House Nazzi" if I could have some garlic sauce (it usually is on the table) and he told me that I'd get it with my food. I got up and grabbed some garlic sauce from another table and he quickly came and told me I'd have to wait for another one and took the one I had! I wouldn't recommend dining in if he's there. I have heard there is also a female waitress that works the restaurant some times and she is nice to the patrons. P.S. I know the word Nazzi is not the appropriate spelling, but this format will not allow me to use the real word!
