I love this place. I recommend it to anyone who loves fresh food and understands that Chinese service is not always about making you feel all warm and gooy inside. Give them a chance and I know you will love them too!

The potstickers are the best. I like how the server just asks, "Potstickers for everyone" and brings out an order (for our table of 5 it was 3 potstickers each). The food itself was just so-so. My moo shu pork had no flavor. My sample of a friend's general chu chicken was just OK. And the walnut shrimp that everyone... More

I don't understand the good reviews on this site. I double-checked and it is the same place I ate at today. 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... More

My family loves this place! The pot stickers and the walnut shrimp are to die for! My brothers will not go to Salt Lake without eating here.

Average "Chinese" food. Other Chinese restaurants around may not have the location "Davids Kitchen" has, but do have better, authentic Chinese cuisine. If your looking for authentic 'Ethnic' cuisine, try the Thai place that just opened, next door.

We have yet to find even decent Chinese in Utah. Well, not true, we have found one good place... some dive on South State that is scarey to look at but has GREAT Chinese. Davids, on the other hand, is not even in the running. I would not even call it average... or even average for Utah. The food is... More

I have been here a number of times and I really like it. It seems to be a popular place because I have seen local celebreties and government officials there as well. You will need to say "Yes" to the pot stickers. It's their signature item and well worth it. Beyond that, the fare is typical Chinese. Service is interesting.... More

5 stars people? I don't think so, maybe for Utah. Friendly staff and average chinese food. I ordered chicken vegetables in brown sauce, I got light garlic. Tasted a bit bland. The shrimp noodles were ok. Nice large shrimp, ok flavor but a bit greasy. No tea ever offered and no orange slices served with fortune cookie.

I wish I could say the Chinese food is really, really different here, but I can't. I CAN say it is an experience and I find myself going here often and by the looks of it, a lot of other people do as well. I have had mixed responses here at times in terms of service, but this time was... More
