Feb 2 2021, 12:51 am

Seattle’s Chinese food scene is one of the most diverse and authentic in all of North America, so you may not be sure where to start your culinary journey.

From perfectly steamed dumplings in traditional bamboo steamers to West Coast-inspired contemporary Chinese cuisine, there is something for everyone’s liking.

Here are the seven best spots for Chinese food in Seattle:

Dough Zone Dumpling House

Dough Zone has some of the most delicious dumplings in Seattle. Although the rest of the menu looks tasty, save room for their savory soup dumplings, pan-fried dumplings, boiled dumplings, and steamed dumplings.

Mike’s Noodle House

Mike’s Noodle House is the perfect tucked-away Chinatown shop that reminds us that simple flavors can still be incredibly delicious. Slurp away at their perfectly cooked noodles and some of the best wontons in the city.

Honey Court is known for great late-night eats. The outside of the building, old and slowly running down, is no indication of the amazing food quality inside.

Location: 516 Maynard Avenue South, Seattle
Phone: 206-292-8828

Jade Garden Restaurant

From the outside, Jade Garden doesn’t look like anything special — that’s kind of how you know it’s going to be good and authentic. Order everything from sweet and sour pork to salted fish fried rice and honey walnut shrimps at Jade Garden.

Location: 424 7th Avenue South, Seattle
Phone: 206-622-8181

Homemade is the keyword to describe Szechuan Noodle Bowl. Their handmade noodles and dumplings will have you wishing that you grew up in the Sichuan Province, with a loving grandmother making you these dishes every week.

Generous portions are what you’re getting at Foo Lam. While not as busy as the others on this list, this spot definitely deserves as much recognition. We love their congee on a cold morning, as well as their hot pot any time of day.
