My host has taken me to Snappy Dragon twice on visits to Seattle. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside. The crowded dining rooms have a "big living room" atmosphere and people are laid back and chowing down happily. It is very casual. The portions are hot, fresh, and generous. Two standout items we noted were that the... More

With family in town from Europe, a trip to Snappy Dragon was a priority. Unfortunately we had to make reservations on Saturday night, and had a baby in the group. Traffic caused us to be 12 minutes late and I was unable to get through by phone to alert them until the 7th call. (Consequently we had to wait to... More

On a rainy day, nothing beats good comfort food that leaves you on the couch binge-watching GOT and Judy Fu comes through! With homemade chow-ein noodles, Judy doesn't just douse the meat in a sauce and send it out the door- she cooks in the sauce, allowing the flavors to seep through each piece of meat, vegetable, and noodle. If... More

The food has been good at this place, however the horrible service, dirty restaurant and filthy dishes don't compensate for the food. The sanitary conditions at this restaurant are horrible, dirty plates, cups, tea kettles, tables, chairs, floor are horrible! I swear I have had the same cranky waitress the last 3 visits that has the personality of a snail!... More

We were recommended to this place because my husband loves Chinese food but doesn't get to eat it often because he is celiac and can't have wheat (or soy sauce, etc.) Not only does this restaurant have an excellent menu but almost everything we tried was delicious. Will definitely be back.

Hand made dumplings and noodles support the already delicious offerings. Judy Fu's is my favorite from the many I have tried coast to coast and in between!

Gave this place a try twice and found it just average. I was hopeful because the food smelled great from the parking lot. Unfortunately, the fried pot stickers were thick and very chewy, the chicken with garlic sauce and vegetables was bland and fairly tasteless. The saving grace was the hot and sour soup. Spicy and robust in flavor. Pretty... More

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.
