Best Chinese food in UT

We much prefer the food at David's Kitchen over any other chinese we've had in UT. The potstickers are great! Make sure to let them know you want some when you sit down as they take a bit longer to prepare, usually its the first thing the server asks about as they are taking drink orders and... read more

I went here with about 10 coworkers and was not impressed. The potstickers were good, but not amazing. They are the only things I would order if I came here again. I tried the sesame beef and General Chu's Chicken and both were okay. Overall I was not impressed. Also, The service was horrible. We waited 45 for the potstickers,... More

Don't let the name fool you. When we saw this was one of the top trip advisor rated eating places in Salt Lake City, we looked at each other & said David's Kitchen? We got there just as they opened at 11 am. They service was fast & friendly. The food was really good with plenty per serving. Would eat... More

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.
