  1. I've had a wide range of meals there over the years from great to terrible. Love the dumplings and the green onion pancakes.

    1. I didn't care for the food (but this was many years ago). I thought the dumpling wrapper was too doughy.

      1. they serve what would be considered decent american-chinese food if bought in lincoln, nebraska - for seattle, it is rather a disappointment especially as the excelllent chiang's gourmet (15th avenue/lake city way) is so close

        1. re: howard 1st

          I've never had a good meal at Chiangs.
          What do you order?

          1. re: JayDK

            i am generally at chiang's with vegan friends who live nearby and we very much like the "tofu of strong odor" (aka 'stinky tofu') and the faux spareribs from their seperate vegetarian menu. when dining carnivorously i like the tea-smoked duck and the mustard greens with pork

        2. Seattle may set a relatively low bar for Chinese food, but one can certainly find much better fare elsewhere. As mentioned, Chiang's is close by (though the experience at Chiang's depends highly on what you order there).

          On a side note, some years ago, they did do some nice handmade dumplings at Snappy Dragon.

          1. "Inconsistent" is my word for Snappy Dragon. I've had great meals there, and ones that should have been returned to the kitchen. This inconsistency is beyond the chef A-team vs. B-team problem at a lot of Chinese restaurants--including Chiangs. Snappy's housemade noodles are pretty good, as is the Haka-style green onion pancake.
