The food here was amazing and a lot of it too. We found it through Yelp and it was some of the best Chinese Food I have had in a long time.

I was craving some Chinese food, & went off the positive reviews for Little World. We were not disappointed! It's true that this is in an older/less attractive part of SLC, but don't be discouraged. The food & service are excellent! Portions are very generous & one entree can easily feed 3. Too bad we were traveling or we would... More

A gem on south State Street, good food and good prices in a less than elegant but comfortable atmosphere. I had the Sweet and sour pork lunch combo, my husband had the chicken cashew combo. Fresh tasting and attractive presentation of food, helpful friendly staff. The egg drop soup was great, and the portions were generous, leftover boxes a plenty.

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
