Purple Dot Cafe

515 Maynard Ave S
Seattle, WA 98104-2918
(206) 622-0288

The food: We are fairly particular about our dim sum and this place delivered!!  They had a great variety of dishes, we had 6, all of which had excellent flavor and were hot and fresh.

The service:  This appeared initially to the a weak point at the Purple Dot, as it took a while to get going.  One of my personal gauges for service is how well my water glass is kept filled, and in the beginning it was not.  However, about half way through the meal, someone threw a switch or something, because it remained full for the rest of the meal!!!

Ambiance:  Very clean, new feel to this restaurant with a nice fish tank to stare at, if that is your thing.   Seating in some areas is a bit tight but there is definitely enough room to maneuver the carts around without banging knees and shins.

Price point:  I thought the prices were very reasonable, especially based on the selection available and of course the taste!!
Miscellaneous:  the one glaring drawback to this spot is the availability of parking, (in the International District?? Go figure!!!)  Be prepared to either park and pay, park and walk or get lucky.  Or you could take the new light rail which will let you out about two blocks from the restaurant!!   One other factoid is this place stays open late!!, like 2-3am.  If you are a fan of good dim sum, I would highly recommend checking this place out.  Enjoy!!
