David's is exactly what it bills itself to be; good chinese food at a very reasonable price in an unpretentious setting. You won't remember the decor but you'll remember the food. Huge portions, fresh and delicious. The service is adequate and attentive. You'll be pleasantly satisfied on all fronts when you dine here.

We checked into our hotel near midnight and were hungry. The front desk recommended David's which was just a short walk away in Chinatown. It was crowded even that late on a Wednesday night. Service was a little slow, but the food was delicious. I had Lovely Couple which was a shrimp and chicken with veggies dish. I tasted a couple of dishes that others at my table ordered and all were very good.

Dave's has been a staple in Chinatown for sometime. Exceptionally clean, the servers are always pleasant and the
food is very good.

Great Authentic Chinese Food located in Chinatown. Located in heart of Philly. Food was great, but service was average. We had a good size party and the cook couldn't keep up with the orders. If there is no hurry and you don't mind watching your companions eat a different times. Then you may like this place. Food is yummy.
