Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 May 2017

My uncle loves this place so each time he wants to have some Chinese food, this is where we meet. It can be busy at times and sometimes is hard to order when you don't know what you want and the staff can also be difficult to understand as they always seem to be on a rush. Always safe to get the shrimp with walnut, yo can never go wrong with fried rice and their noodles. Weekend dim sum where you order as the carts come along can get very crowded so be there by 11AM

I live in the area, and have been dining here and doing take out since this place opened at its prior location. This probably is the best traditional Chinese restaurant in the Shoreline/Edmonds/Lynnwood corridor of Highway 99/Aurora.

Dim sum on the weekends is pretty good. Many local Asians come here, but it's not up to the level of the better International District places (but the Ranch 99 parking lot is huge and free, unlike the ID).

The restaurant itself is industrial Hong Kong basic, looks slightly worn after being at this location for about 15 years. It is the sort of large room that accommodates the large Asian family gathering scene typically seen on weekends.

The food quality over the years has varied. The seafood dishes used to be pretty good, but the last time we ordered sauteed scallops with snow peas (late 2016), it seemed to me that a total of 8 scallops was a bit stingy. Crispy prawns with honey walnuts a good bet (but why the mayonnaise-based sauce, I've never quite understood, but add some hot sauce and it's much better to my taste). Avoid the chicken hot pot -- the boniest chicken pieces seem to end up in this dish -- the beef hot pot or sizzling chicken is much better. The "Economic Dish" portion of the take-out menu usually a good value. Lately, the cooking quality seems to have improved, and take out orders have been filled more promptly than in past years, but the food tends to the bland side.

The service has always verged on terrible. Keep in mind that English may be virtually nonexistent with some of the wait staff. High school or college Mandarin won't be of much help either, different dialect the dominant language here.

So, while I am a regular customer because this is a convenient spot for a decent Chinese food fix, there are definite minuses. There are better Asian restaurants for niche offerings, like dumplings or noodles, but this still remains the best overall Chinese restaurant this far north from the International District in Seattle.

Very good dim sum and other dishes. The seafood is their standout but the dim sum is worth coming for as well. This is a traditional style dim sum restaurant, large space, noisy and worth the experience. We like their food, the fried choices like shrimp toast and not dripping in oil and cooked well. The steamed dishes like har gown are well prepared with fresh shrimp. The oysters are great as well as the traditional dishes and rice's. The best (and only) Edmonds dim sum

Very fun to choose little dishes of delicios and interesting food! Sometimes just have to take the dish because can't understand the Chinese name! Never a bad one! Really like that you can snatch little dishes of food and still order off the menu! Tasty wide rice noodle dishes! Fresh vegetables are stirred fried to perfection! Delicious egg tarts!

This place was crowded on weekdays but not so crowded on the weekends. The location was close to 99 Ranch Market in Highway 99, so it was very convenient

The dimsum was nice. Not sure about the best in seattle but it is close to being authentic Chinese breakfast dimsum.

Comical service occurred when we asked for the bill. We received the bill with US$55 being circled in red. When we calculated the written details, they added up to about $25. So we went to the cashier to ask. The cashier lady wrote down a few things in chinese on the bill and put the $ figure. And they added up to the US $55.

"there, you calculate yourself," she said while returning the bill and gave us a calculator. "Its correct, you will see after you calculate yourself."

Hahahaha
