Its tough to find good Chinese food outside of Chinatown and Snappy Dragon is one of the best. Lines can get pretty long and delivery even longer on some nights so plan ahead but always a good meal. They also make a good homemade noodle if interested and I would encourage you to try that out.

~Y~e~a~r~s~ ago, long-time restaurant critic, John Hinterberger, introduced a lot of us to Judy Fu. Then, I believe she was at the Black Pearl in Wedgwood. She has since -- long since! -- started her own restaurant in nearby Maple Leaf, Judy Fu's Snappy Dragon. Dine in or take out, you just can't beat it. Start with the hot and... More

OK, it must be because there are so many restaurants in Seattle, but Judy Fu's Snappy Dragon restaurant is NOT the 400th best restaurant in Seattle. That's the current ranking.

Being from a rural area we do not have a Chinese food option, so it seems that when we are in Seattle we always migrate to Judy Fu's for the Asian food fix. Ordering family style is always fun as everyone picks what they want and you end up with experiencing some very interesting meals. The Snappy Dragon is always... More

Went there for lunch with the family. Located not too far from the UW campus. Overall, well...average. We eat at a lot of Chinese restaurants so wasn't expecting anything outstanding but the reviews indicated this was truly special. The vegetable lacked good flavor. true, nice and crispy but just nothing special. The restaurant is renowned for its dumplings and they... More

Terrible chow mein...lots of noodles, but nothing else. Out of four entrees, the only one edible was the Mu Shu Pork (excellent).

The food here is wonderful. From the hand made dumplings to the fresh in-house made chow mein noodles I've never had better. Get there early to avoid a wait.

We love the curry chow fun and pork dumplings-we eat it almost every Friday-great portions, usually we can share these and some fried rice and our family of four eats 2 full meals.
