The waiter brought wrong item out then insisted it was what was ordered. Would offer no solution. Do we just ordered another dish and waited to eat. Her had trouble separating the bill as well. Food was good, but service quality diminished the experience.

This is my go to restaurant for Thai food in downtown Salt Lake City, as the food has always been very good and for the money its a good value. The service is great, the wait staff know the menu very well and can help with suggestions if you really are not familiar with Thai food. It is a quiet place so and the booth are comfortable. The lamb is really good.

My friend and I were attending the Young Living Essential Oils Convention, and we easily made reservations for dinner, on the day we planned to attend. We didn't think we'd have time for dinner, but we ended up having extra time. We were seated immediately and appreciated the peace and quiet. Our waiter was good, but he needed to speak up and be a little more enthusiastic. Our food was delicious, and we'll definitely go back next time we are in town. I had Chicken Pad Thai, and my friend had a chicken dish. We had tons of food and wished we had a way to heat our leftovers in our hotel, but we didn't have a microwave. We easily had enough food for 4 people, or 2 people with leftovers!

Excellent Chinese and Thai food in Salt Lake City. Service was great and the food was outstanding; high quality and good value. This is not a place for a cheap outing but a couple can have a great meal and a drink for $50-60.

The appetizers were ordered amazing (cream cheese wontons, egg rolls, and potstickers). Entree was delicious- both the Thai options and Chinese options. I even ordered off menu and they accommodated with a no problem! We will definitely return. I’ve been searching for an amazing Chinese food restaurant

This is really Chinese food and not Thai food.
The way of cooking is almost the same.
For the Tom Yang Kung soup they used instant powder and not the real one. Also we get small srimp. Lamb dishes also not good.
Kung Pao shrimp so so .We do not recommended this restaurant.

This was to be a surprise for my partner who loves Chinese food. Indeed it was a surprise but not the kind we expected. Ordered pot stickers to start which were cold and had to get a new serving. Ordered brown rice and got white which was dry. Had the tangerine chicken which also was dry. Rated this as the worst Chinese dinner we have ever had. Would not recommend.

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).

We ordered appetizers and asked for them to come first. All food came at once and some cold. Shrimp and scallops were breaded, not expected or described on menu.

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.
