We drive 45 mins to an hour one way depending on traffic just to grab take out dim sum from here. It's our go to place for quality and price. Whenever we try somewhere else we leave feeling disappointed and ripped off. They have all of our favorites and they have never got our huge orders wrong.

This is a traditional chinese restaurant with authentic chinese cooking. We ordered salty egg with spinach, mapo tofu, fried pork chop and egg foo young. The portion was generous and the taste is addicting. We were lucky to find this in seattle.

Fresh seafood and produce are plenty in Seattle so it's no feat to cook up a good meal. We found the food here too salty. Namely the roast duck, roast pork and even vegetable. Portions are served with no finesse. I don't expect fine dining but it feels like chopper to dish.

Having been in the States for the past 10 days and all the indulgence in local cuisine makes me home sick. luckily we found this restaurant tuck in the corner of Seattle Chinatown. We love the food here especially those that we ordered, some char siew bao, prawn dumplings fried noodles with seafood sauce.... in fact, we came back here... More

This is a classic local hole in the wall. Translation: good eats. The Dim sum is large portions, cooked like they should be, service was fast, variety ample and crowded. 95% Asian rating. We got there at 10 am and a line had just started. We got our table of 9 in mins. When we finished, a 30+ mins wait... More

Authentic Chinese food is difficult to find in Seattle, Harbor City is the best we've found so far. All of the buns, dumplings and chicken feet were delicious, highly recommend!

If you like dim sum, this is the place to visit in Chinatown, Seattle. We had bbq pork sticky buns, steamed shrimp dumplings, and steamed bbq sandwiches, and hot tea. Food was on our table a minute after we sat down. All for 10 bucks, and it was delicious!

I was craving dimsum for dinner and this restaurant did not disappoint. Had shumai, steamed buns, spare ribs, Chinese broccoli in garlic sauce, and shrimp dumplings. Very reasonable prices and big portions!

My Filipino girlfriend and I just returned from a 7-day cruise and were craving Dim Sum on our last night in Seattle. We checked on Trip Advisor and found Harbor City in Seattle's Chinatown highly rates so we grabbed an Uber and headed over. Seattle's Chinatown can look a little dingy in the evening and the outside of Harbor City... More

I have been coming to China town in Seattle for actually longer than I can remember, and My long term memory is pretty good, so that means at least 60 years. So many things have changed, old favourites for take-out have gotten too expensive due to popularity? , some days I just want the good old fashioned cheap take out... More
