I live in Madison, WI. I have to get my dim sum imported by my family when they come visit me from Hawaii. So I am determined to find which restaurant in Seattle area has the best Hong Kong style Dim Sum. I'll only be in town for 3 days so I'll only have time to have one dim sum meal. Please post also if you know if they serve on weekdays or only weekends.

Thanks in advance!

I've heard good things about Jade Garden in the International District, though I haven't been yet myself.

O'Asian kitchen in downtown Seattle I heard has really good dim sum

Home - O'Asian is the website for that restaurant.

800 5th Avenue Between Columbia and Marion St. Downtown Seattle near Pioneer Square.

Based on the website's description of the Dim Sum there.

"A Cantonese tradition, originated in the southern part of China. The direct translation of "dim sum" means "a touch of your heart." Similar to French style hors d'oeurves, dim sum comes in hot and cold dishes. Today dim sum consists of a variety of steamed, baked, stir-fried, and fried goodies. All dim sum are hand-made everyday at the O'Asian kitchen,"

In the Chinatown/International District. Sun Ya and Jade Garden are both good. In Kent, the Imperial Garden is regarded as one of the best in the Seattle area, and in Bellevue, a lot of people like Top Gun near Factoria and also Noble Court.

Unfortunately, Seattle is not a top-tier Dim-Sum town, although there are some decent options.

I'd have to second Jade Garden as your best choice. It's a much more authentic experience than O'Asian, which is super-corporate feeling. I prefer Jade Garden's Dim Sum to any other place Ive tried.

You can check out yelp.com for reviews of the better dim sum restaurants. Jade Garden is my favorite but it's not easy to get a table there.

The OP did not ask whether or not Seattle is a top tier Dim-Sum town.

What do you mean O'Asian kitchen is too corporate? Just because its downtown near some offices and some people go there dressed up?

Im glad there is a great independent Pan-asian restaurant downtown with character like that downtown.

Other than Dim Sum, O'Asian kitchen has great Veggie Tempera, Singapore style rice noodles, and other things.

Its a really nice place in ambiance too. The OP will decide, after he or she sees the website for that restaurant.

Seattle may not be a "top tier dim sum town/city," in America, it really is a top Asian food city for many different types of Asian cuisine. Personally, I had better Indian, Thai, and Pan-asian food here a lot of the time than in New York City. Also many great desserts here. Great food that also isnt Asian. At least 25 great restaurants, and 5 great supermarkets, and definitely other great restaurants too. Seattle's food scene seems severely underrated. My family members who visited me from NYC were very impressed by Seattle's food scene and kind of jealous at times for some places. Actually, it really is one of the top food places in America in general if people look hard enough here.

I feel like some people who complain about Seattle's food scene only go to places like Mcdonalds and then say "Seattles food scene sucks." Not that Im saying anyone in this thread goes to Mcdonalds. Well, at least I hope not...

If me and my family members who visited me went to places like Mcdonalds here in Seattle, of course all of us would hate Seattle's food scene then and have nothing but horrible things to say about Seattles food scene. Of course there are some horrible food places in Seattle, but that is true with every place in the world.

Not that Im offending anyone who goes to places like Mcdonalds... but Mcdonalds really does have horrible, unhealthy food, and the way the place looks like always look dumpy. I dream of one day where all Mcdonalds close in America and the world... Actually I only saw 2 Mcdonalds in Seattle. Did see some Jack in the Box too here. Another joke for a food establishment.

The Seattle food scene doesn't compare to New York's. Here in Seattle I still have an appetite after walking through the neighborhood. The stench in NYC is a major appetite suppressant .
