Judy Fu's is always the best! We love stopping here to eat whenever we are in the area! It never disappoints! The dumplings are homemade and sooooooo delicious! I could eat a meal of just dumplings! But of course everything else is so good you have to order more! For dinner everything is more family style...we ordered the bowl of... More

Good Find! At 4:45 on a Sunday there were 6 tables full. By the time we left at 6:10, it was packed! Very Large family style portions. Fantastic for large groups....pricy for 2 wanting 3-4 dishes. They have combinations at lunch, but not at dinner. Food Very Good! Service Great! Clean

Since Louie's Closed down, my family have been searching for a good place and this did not disappoint. We tried almost everything on two separate occasions. the Fried Rice is just out of this world perfect. Both nights it was packed but the service was excellent. For the adults might I recommend the Pikachu punch, yum yum yum. I did... More

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

A very fine local eatery with great hand-made/home-made dumplings. Very tasty, reasonably priced, and a good atmosphere.

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. This place is easy to drive to and park, feels more like suburbia. I was worried because the lower ranking, don't be, go here. First of all, we go in... More

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
