My friends and I went here because Konas was closed. If you've ever been to a Chinese place, it's probably just line that. The dishes were good and well priced considering the amount of food you get. We took a Bunch home with us. Would go back if in the area, but probably wouldn't go out of the way.

I love to eat here as the food is amazing. The service is the hardest part as it's either hot or cold.

Judy has been at this location for many years and is a Seattle institution. The food is always good. Service has always suffered, however. Be sure to buy some of her sauces on the way out, especially the peanut sauce.

We went with friends for our first time. Service was good. Food was very good, including the mu shoo pancakes, a shrimp dish and more... It was fairly busy. We plan to go back and try it again.

We had not been to this place for many years but decided to try it again, and were happy to see the large selection of vegetarian options. But the food really disappointed. The scallion pancake was tough and bland. The mushu pancakes were terrible - very thick (much thicker than a tortilla) and leathery, and yet they fell apart as... More

The Food is outstanding, where it's lacking is the consistency of the service. Last time we went everyone was done with there food before my entree got to the table.

If people are just visiting Seattle, they won't accidentally run into this place. We don't live in Seattle but often make it a point to stop by when in town. This is a long-time restaurant in a North Seattle neighborhood house. It's not large, the waiting room is small, and there's only street parking. Despite all that, this family-run business... More

I like Judy Fu's but we are vegetarian and there are very few meat-free dishes with any flavor. The tofu dishes are too soft and slippery, and the noodles are so-so. The curry chow fun is good but if we go there it's all we ever get. My meat eater friends like this place.

I have many fond memories of this place in years past. The food this time was really salty and in hindsight I should have sent it back. I hope this was just a bad day for the kitchen. I will still give them a second chance though. That's how much I love Judy Fu!

Snappy Dragon opened in 1993 and it must have been just about then that I first visited. This was back when David, the manager, and I both had no grey in our hair. I've never seen the quality waver in those years. I was in the neighborhood for years and would get carry-out, delivery, or dining in several times a... More
