This is a great "go to" restaurant, especially with out of town guest, we never leave disappointed. The food was great, service excellent and good value. My friends were extremely pleased with my choice of a place to eat.

This was my second trip to SLC and my second time at J. Wong’s. I have never forgotten the amazing honey walnut shrimp I had there and was determined to go back just for it. It did not disappoint! Delicious!!

Excellent dinner with a friend. We shared chicken basil pad Thai, green beens, and sauteed garlic spinach with a glass of wine each. It was quiet and we had a private booth so that we could have a nice conversation.

great place to eat Asian food in Salt Lake City, they were fast to sit us, wait time was less than a minute, service was good and my guest liked their meal. I would highly recommend this place for a quick median priced evening out.

Great experience for Chinese New Year. Lion Dance lasted 20 min; restaurant texted to make sure we knew it was happening. Peking duck very crisp and flavorful (takes about 20 min, which they told us). Service attentive without being obtrusive. Mango sticky rice desert tasty (rice is warm with lots of coconut).

It was ok, nothing more. I had a curry dish that lacked much curry flavor. The dishes were quite bland and lacked the seasoning I expected for Thai. The curry appetizer was very good though.

Loved that we could sit and visit with friends in a no-rush atmosphere. Food was great. Good sized portions for sharing. Good options. The worst thing is that it’s right next to a bar so the cigarette smoke would drift in when the door opened.

The service was terrible. Waited ten minutes to be told that they couldn’t actually make the drink we ordered. The dining room had no servers on several occasions. Waited again for our bill. Food was average...salmon of grocery store quality and bland panang. So disappointing. I used to love this place.

Tried J Wongs for the first time. We were all impressed that this was not the "usual" Chinese Sysco fare. The flavors of the various dishes were excellent. The prices were moderate, about $13-$18, but some dishes were $20-$30. Recommend the lettuce wraps, wonton soup, and walnut shrimp. My son had the Mossaman curry lamb and loved it. Lo Mein needed salt, we all agreed, but, generally, we all voted to go back to J Wongs again.

Trying to eat before attending Eccles theater on Sunday evening can be a challenge. We were grateful that J. Wong's was available and had easy street parking available. Walking a couple of blocks to the theater afterward is very easy.

Dinner was delicious. We enjoyed soup, potstickers and shared two entrees among four of us. We added the baby bok choy side and found it very good. We requested the Tangerine Chicken be prepared with chicken that was unbreaded, stir frying rather than deep frying. Perfect choice for our group. Our server was very accommodating.

Worst Pad Thai ever. Noodles were mushy and cold, without peanuts or lime. Husband’s dish was cashew chicken and was inedible: rubbery chicken and no sauce. Could not get server’s attention. Can’t believe someone let our meals leave the kitchen as-is. Obviously, no pride in what they serve their customers. Sorry, but one of the worst meals ever.

The service was slow considering there was no one in the place. When the appetizer and soup arrived it was cold. Again the waiter was nowhere to be found, no chance I would ever stop into this establishment again.

We went here twice during a convention. It’s very convenient to the convention center. The service is slow. They don’t seem to have enough servers. Refills of water was non existent. The food is way above average. The prices are reasonable. The staff is somewhat bewildered but pleasant. As long as you have time, it’s great.

PERFECT for lunch while you're at a convention - directly across the street from the Salt Palace Convention Center. My team and I eat here for lunch every time we have a conference. Varied menu, relatively inexpensive, and able to seat a large group.

An impromptu date night with my lovely wife to celebrate a good week, and as it was still fairly early on a Friday evening, J Wong had space available and we walked right in.

We settled in with a glass of wine and the food was ready so quickly we were both kind of surprised. I ordered Thai, my wife Chinese, and both of us were very happy with the quality, quantity and taste of our meal.

The ambiance was nice, a nearby group sang happy birthday, but it didn't really bother anyone, I can't hold that singing against the restaurant. Our waitress was very nice and accommodating, but as the restaurant filled up the staff had more to handle and we waited for a while to get our check then have it picked up. Still, that was pretty minor. My only other recommendation to the restaurant would be to implement some kind of 'heat scale' for the Thai curries, as what one person considers 'medium' another may find quite spicy. I like spicy food and requested a hot curry, but would like to have had a better sense of just how hot they consider hot. This is not a problem unique to this restaurant, but some others have found a way to try to meet/manage customers' expectations.

Over all we had a lovely downtown date night meal and wouldn't hesitate to go there again or recommend to others.

Awesome restaurant with excellent food and service. While I was in town, I took my staff out for lunch as it is one of their favorite lunch sites. Everything was as delicious as they said. This is a definite place to return for either a quick lunch and I will be anxious to return for dinner. Thank you!
