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

We asked for a recommendation from a museum we were visiting. The variety of dim sum was amazing--pork, seafood, vegetables, dumplings. You will want to go slowly if you have a party of two or one--you can always get more. We had about 7 different dishes and tea and the bill was around $30. Fun and instructive for a first... More

This was my friend's and my first time eating this kind of food. Some dishes were better than others. Highly recommend the shrimp with walnuts, spring rolls, and egg tarts. Excellent tea!

Great atmosphere, clean place, helpful service and absolutely delicious food. The food came fast and everything we ordered was stellar. The atmosphere was so welcoming, we stayed drinking tea well after we finished our food.

We visited Harbor City for a dim sum lunch and we were not disappointed. They had a large variety of offerings, all freshly made and tasty. We ended up taking several take out boxes because we couldn't stop sampling. Prices are reasonable.

Arrived with a party of 8 (6 adults, 2 teens). Were seated immediately at round table with lazy susan. Ordered 8 main dishes, 4 appetizers, and 2 soft drinks. Total bill was under $130 without tip! Food was excellent! Fresh, flavorful, and large portions. My favorites were the egg rolls (with shrimp inside), General Tso's chicken, sweet and sour shrimp,... More
