This place looks old and unkept, the wait staff is a little rude but the food is AMAZING! I am always impressed with the flavor, portions, and quality of the food here...an absolute oralgasm. If you don't like the atmosphere or the grumpy staff just order "to-go" but don't let those things scare you from ordering the best Chinese food... More

Loved this little place! The food is absolutely amazing, and priced super cheap. Don't be scared, it is a little dirty inside, but the food is so good it doesn't matter. I will keep coming back to this place over and over. Really great veggie options too, I had the Buddah Supreme with tofu, and it was the best tofu... More

While I am not a food critic, I have enjoyed many Chinese meals. Little World Chinese Restaurant in Salt Lake City is the worst food I have ever had! My husband and I noticed immediately that the restaurant was not clean. My husband ordered beef lomein, but he told me that the meat was unidentifiable, so he ate mostly noodles.... More

Gross!! Plus they are temporarily shut down for 71 health code violations. That is disgusting. I can't even describe how grossed out that I am now that I know this.

This has got to be one of the WORST Chinese restaurants I have ever tried in the Salt Lake area. Between this one and Ho Ho Gourmet, it is a toss up as to which one is worse. But I initially decided to try out this place at the behest of a friend at work. She said she would swear... More

This place was not good. The servers were very nice but that was the only redeeming quality this restaurant had. First off, it stunk inside. Not like most Chinese restaurants smell but a disgusting smell. My husband's sweet and sour chicken wasn't bad but I got the moo goo gai pan and it was seriously the worst thing I've ever... More

For Chinese this is the best restaurant so far in Utah! I always get either orange chicken or General TSO's and mixed other things.... The prices are really awesome, especially during lunch time which I believe is 11- 12 or 1... you get a lot for the price! nice people too! If you want good Chinese food then go here!

The place looks pretty shabby inside and out. I read the reviews and decided to try it. I am hooked. Try the pot stickers and go to the unusual chef menu It's not your usual American Chinese. These is the real stuf and it's good !
