The Best Chinese Food in Seattle

The OpenTable Team

Considered the New York of the Northwest, Seattle offers a vibrant metropolis surrounded by unmatched natural beauty. Bordered by Lake Washington on the east and Puget Sound on the west, you can find gorgeous views of the waterways and mountains on all sides. Seattle got its start as a lumber and fishing town, but it has since grown into a hub for tech startups and a launching point of Amazon and Starbucks. The grunge-rock movement of the 1990s grew out of Seattle, and the city maintains a flourishing art and music scene. Not to mention, you can indulge in some of the best dining America has to offer in this coastal town, especially when it comes to Chinese food. But where are the smartest, savviest diners eating out when in the mood for dumplings, hot pot, or spicy Szechuan? Welcome to the Tastemaker Lists. We’ve pulled data from thousands of restaurants to find the top spots among OpenTable's most expert, seasoned diners. Check out this list of the best Chinese food in Seattle.
