Great stop on our walk

Great stop on our walk thru the international district. We sat down and just started putting dishes in front of us. No idea what most were but they tasted great.

I had never been to an authentic Chinese restaurant before. My girlfriend and I where both very excited about the experience and was ready to jump into the new world. As soon as we walked in we where hit with the overwhelming sound of people screaming at each other talking. We where shocked but was ok with it. We waited... More

Harbor City has by far the best Dim Sum you will find in the Seattle area. I have tried many places in the area over the years and none compare, this is my go to every time I am in Seattle. Wide variety of dim sum and the calamari is exceptionally fresh as well. I've never had anything other than... More

Harbor City serves authentic, delicious food. We especially loved the Dim sum. The prices are very reasonable.

Excellent Cantonese food, dim sum served all day (it's fresh and hot, we ordered ours in the evening better than from the carts). It's in old chinatown downtown, parked on the side streets and pay by meter. Everyone there was Chinese.

Visited this afternoon, enjoyed the all day Dim sum Menu on a Sunday. Was great value. Must haves are the crispy pork and the half Peking duck. Really authentic aesthetics aren't anything to brag about but the food makes up for all of this. Try the Singapore vermicelli noodles... Well worth it. Watch out for the portions as everything served... More

I'd heard so much about this place that I went for a late breakfast. It's not that I was disappointed, but it did not meet my expectations. The shu mai was heavy and the service was average.

There's a very good reason there's usually a line of hungry customers waiting for a table at Harbor City, the food is just delicious. We met friends here who arrived early and grabbed a table just as we arrived. In my opinion, this is Dim Sum at it's finest. The food is made from fresh ingredients and served steaming hot.... More

Situated in the heart of ChinaTown, this is a terrific place for some of the best chinese food we've had. We went for Dimsum and were very happy with the food, service and the entire experience. The staff was very nice and helpful. It's open for breakfast, lunch and Dinner - 7 day a week.

A busy place. Inexpensive. Loved the barbecued pork and roast duck as much as the wide variety if dim sum. Definitely worth the wait.
