A hole in the wall Chinese cuisine.

I love this place eventhough there are some negative feedback about this place. It is one of the restaurants where I can get an authentic chinese food. Not too pricey. Orange chicken is one of my favorite here including Salt Baked Squid.

Best Chinese food in Utah. Period. Being from the east coast and quite picky about Chinese food, this is the most authentic place I've found in the state. Don't expect any atmosphere or frills. There are none. However, the food more than makes up for the lack of the physical surroundings. I am frequently the only non-Asian in the place,... More

The tastiest take out Chinese in Salt Lake. We have been there at least 30 times. The Beef Lo Mein with Egg Noodles is to die for.

Little world offers real Chinese food in a simple environment. The list is long with over 300 offerings, all the classics including the modern Kung Pow Chicken etc. They do a great job on rice noodles (my favorite). Fish, duck, vegetables with rice or noodles. They have take out and a simple old style cafe with booths and one large... More

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
