In a small town like Price Ut, there really isn't any good Chinese food like we had been used to while living in northern Ut. So we are always looking for good Chinese restaurants. We read about Davids here on city search while planning a trip to SLC. And I must say we have found a place to come back to every time!! My Husband and I enjoyed our favorite dish , Generals chicken, and one of Henrie suggestions Pork w/ fresh veggies and also the atmosphere. The service was ,at first, a concern, but after another table left it was better. We were definitely won over when David came over and helped our three young daughters learn how to use chop sticks:)

I have been coming to this restaurant for almost 15 years now. This is where I realized that Bloody Marys go hand in hand with Chinese food... And where David and his lovely wife and son, Henry will make you feel like your the only ones there. David and his wife used to sit down and spoon feed my son when he was little! Now that my son is turning 16, his choice for dinner with his friends and family remains the same: David's... It is always packed in here at night, so be prepared, they do take reservations. It should be noted that I have introduced my parents to the authentic taste and service here and they now regularly throw parties for their picky old friends here (haha). I have brought many a picky palate (mine included) to David's and even the most hardcore Asians (incl. my boyfriend) are fans... Get the potstickers or don't even bother.

David's Kitchen is to me by far the best Chinese food in Salt Lake City, and there pot-stickers are so delicious. The service is always great from the wait staff and you get your freshly cooked food made to order. I would highly recommend it, as the best in town.

Most Chinese food tastes like it's been sitting in a steam pan for a few hours. That's not the case at David's! All of the dishes are prepared fresh and actually cooked with the sauce - not just covered with it at the end. The previous location certainly added a bit of ""edge"" to the dining experience, but their new stand-alone building is great. There's lots of parking and seating. David himself is almost always there with suggestions and input and the staff always seems to be running and working hard. On the rare occasion they've forgotten something in our order, they are always quick to make it right.

Here is my lunch experience today at Davids kitchen:
After arriving we were seated and ordered soup and potstickers. They came quickly and were delicious. After that things began to go down hill. We received our main courses 40 minutes later and only after asking the waitress about our orders status. The food was not horrible but was by no means exceptional. I ordered Kung Pao chicken and found it to be bland with little flavor or spiciness.
Perhaps other dishes may be better but I could not recomend this restaurant based on my experience with the food and service today.

I've eaten Chinese food while living in San Francisco, New York, and many other places on trips and I can say without reserve David's Kitchen is the BEST Chinese food I've ever eaten. I saw a review that David over charged and to be honest I have a hard time believing that, I've been there no less than 30 times and not once have I ever had a problem. I recommend the potstickers, black pepper beef, walnut shrimp, and basically anything else on the menu but those are my favorites.

Although David's kitchen serves excellent food, be cautious when ordering in a large group where each guest serves themselves from small platters (family style). David has overcharged our company on several occasions as much as $20 per person for a lunch that would have cost $8 if each person ordered off the menu. Note that each guest only drank water during their lunch.
Although an attempt was made to discuss the over charges with David, he refused to talk about it. Our company is very dissatisfied with David's inability to provide a fair meal for a fair price and we will not return.

I have been to David's probably 10 times and each time in between my visits I forget how good the food really is! The potstickers are a MUST have. They mix your sauce at your table how ever you like it (medium for me) , the walnut shrimp sweet sauce, candied walnuts and it has a really nice texture, Salt and pepper beef is tender and not too salty and always the genrals chicken sweet and tangy sauce. It's like sweet and sour chicken's gourmet sibling. The soups are also good. I've only had the egg flower and the dumpling they were both really good but I have friends that swear by the hot and sour. The service was good ( my water glass never got less than 1/2 empty) , our food came out quickly and the prices are resonable (especially for the quality. The potstickers are handmade and the shimp are big). Overall great food and good service!

I was completing disappointed in the food and service and smell of David's kitchen. My wonderful boyfriend loves the place, swears by it in fact. So I decided to give it a try. The potstickers yes were very delightful indeed but that was about it. Just walking in the place almost ruined my meal. It had a musty smell of stale cigarettes. Right off the bat I thought interesting way to impress a new customer. Don't order a soda or anything other than water because it is served from the bar in the next room and taste like it comes from a bar tap. Not only are the drinks over priced, but you don't even get a refill and than you have to tip for a soda. So plan on spending $3.00 for a nasty Diet Coke. I took two sips and could not drink any more. My boyfriend who loves the place took a sip and also could not stand the taste! I found my food tastless, flavorless and totally dull! Lacked in texture and the fried rice was nasty! The fried rice was the most disappointing item of all! I mean how can you screw that up! It was under cooked, and had one nasty flavor to it! To say the least I was not impressed with the place. I will never go there again unless dragged by my boyfriend who strangely thinks it's the best Chinesse he has ever had.
