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.

The specialty homemade noodles cannot be eaten by the gluten intolerant (much to the disappointment of my husband) but there are many other delicious choices, making this one of our first choice restaurants for dinner. The portions are not skimpy, so we end up with enough for one or two more dinners at home.

Seattle doesn't seem to have many good Chinese restaurants. This place is one of the exceptions. Don't let the exterior fool you; there's a reason there's a waiting line out the door at this place. The East Side has Din Tai Fung; Seattle has Snappy Dragon. Snappy Dragon has terrific hand-made noodles. They will cost you an extra dollar or... More

This is a great location, but deceptive from the outside. It is not that it is run down, but from the outside it is plain and you enter from the side and not the front. The restaurant is divided into two areas. There is a steady flow of customers. We were visiting our daughter and her family in Seattle and... More

A small group of us, Eight folks, meet last night at Judy Fu's Snappy Dragon in the Maplewood district of Seattle, one of our favorite Chinese restaurants in the city of Seattle. We ordered many dishes to share and every dish was a delight. I've been dining there for a decade and still find new dishes to try and enjoy.

Our son took us out to eat at this greatt little Chinese place. The food was wonderful. Started with perfect dumplings and then selected four entrees. I had the Kung Pao chicken at 4-star spicey and it was perfect. Even with four adults and two kids there was a lot of leftovers to take home - unfortunately one of the... More
