no no no. the potstickers are so-so and the owner pushes them on you. they are pricey. the place is run down. i don't get what the hype is about.
Worst Chinese Food ever!! AWFUL! We ordered the General Chu's chicken. The chicken was weird tasting, like it was thawed out too long and had almost gone bad before it was cooked. It was awful. The Kung Pao was no better. The only thing I ate was the Lo Mein, soaked in MSG of course, even though I asked and they said it wasn't. I should've known it was gonna be bad when the food showed up a minute after ordering it. If I had wanted Chinese fast food I would've gone to Panda Express, which is fine cuisine by comparison to this joint. On top of everything the server/cook had a serious attitude problem. $30 down the drain and a stomachache later, I warn you to stay away!
The have changed there location to right west of state, the location is biggest and a nicer. I love the pot stickers here and the hot and sauce soup. Havent tried anything I do not like yet.
slow slow slow service almost ignorant good food not worth the service!!!!
One of the best – In a small town like Price Ut, there really isn't any good Chinese food like we had been used to while living in northern Ut. So we are always looking for good Chinese restaurants. We read about Davids here on city search while planning a trip to SLC. And I must say we have found a place to come back to every time!! My Husband and I enjoyed our favorite dish , Generals chicken, and one of Henrie suggestions Pork w/ fresh veggies and also the atmosphere. The service was ,at first, a concern, but after another table left it was better. We were definitely won over when David came over and helped our three young daughters learn how to use chop sticks:)
Luxury at Half the Price – I have been coming to this restaurant for almost 15 years now. This is where I realized that Bloody Marys go hand in hand with Chinese food... And where David and his lovely wife and son, Henry will make you feel like your the only ones there. David and his wife used to sit down and spoon feed my son when he was little! Now that my son is turning 16, his choice for dinner with his friends and family remains the same: David's... It is always packed in here at night, so be prepared, they do take reservations. It should be noted that I have introduced my parents to the authentic taste and service here and they now regularly throw parties for their picky old friends here (haha). I have brought many a picky palate (mine included) to David's and even the most hardcore Asians (incl. my boyfriend) are fans... Get the potstickers or don't even bother.
So Delicious – David's Kitchen is to me by far the best Chinese food in Salt Lake City, and there pot-stickers are so delicious. The service is always great from the wait staff and you get your freshly cooked food made to order. I would highly recommend it, as the best in town.
No gloppy sauce, just great food – Most Chinese food tastes like it's been sitting in a steam pan for a few hours. That's not the case at David's! All of the dishes are prepared fresh and actually cooked with the sauce - not just covered with it at the end. The previous location certainly added a bit of "edge" to the dining experience, but their new stand-alone building is great. There's lots of parking and seating. David himself is almost always there with suggestions and input and the staff always seems to be running and working hard. On the rare occasion they've forgotten something in our order, they are always quick to make it right.
Slow service. Great soup. Mediocre main dishes – Here is my lunch experience today at Davids kitchen:
After arriving we were seated and ordered soup and potstickers. They came quickly and were delicious. After that things began to go down hill. We received our main courses 40 minutes later and only after asking the waitress about our orders status. The food was not horrible but was by no means exceptional. I ordered Kung Pao chicken and found it to be bland with little flavor or spiciness.
Perhaps other dishes may be better but I could not recomend this restaurant based on my experience with the food and service today.
David's is Divine.... – I've eaten Chinese food while living in San Francisco, New York, and many other places on trips and I can say without reserve David's Kitchen is the BEST Chinese food I've ever eaten. I saw a review that David over charged and to be honest I have a hard time believing that, I've been there no less than 30 times and not once have I ever had a problem. I recommend the potstickers, black pepper beef, walnut shrimp, and basically anything else on the menu but those are my favorites.
