    Great staff, awful food. My soup was hot and sweet, not hot and sour. Yuk!! Thai Basil clams was a good dish but many of the clams were not open. Pad Thai was laden with gloppy peanut topping that overwhelmed any other flavors. On a brighter note, our server was awesome!!

    I I’ve been going to J Wongs 2010, when I lived downtown (next door) at the Patrick lofts. Great staff, wonderful food and prices are very reasonable. Went on a date night, they had four large groups and the service was still above par.

    Was quite disappointed, food took for ever to come out, well over 30 minutes for our appetizers alone. And when my soup was served, it was iced cold. Apps were completely but with the amount of time we had to wait, really soured our experience. The issues were solely back of the house, the motorized carts were cool to look at but in my humble opinion really slow down the service.

    Worst service ever! We ordered two appetizers, didn't receive them. Told one of the wait staff who said they would check on it, he never came back to us but was on the floor. Told another employee, they apologized and said they were swamped before we arrived. There was one other table when we arrived. I had a scooter due to two foot surgeries in the past two months, in which was right up to our table and not in the way. The manager came by and said he was putting it in the front so their robots didn't bump into it. It had come by several times up to then with no issues. AND it's not like it was a fashion accessory, its a mobility device!! I needed it twice to stand up. Finally saw our original waiter AFTER we had eaten most of the main course. He said he would check with the kitchen about the appetizers. Another staff came by and asked if we needed a box, we declined. He was surprised and rudely said to my daughter that's such a waste of food! My daughter is in recovery from an eating disorder!! You don't say that to people (even if they don't struggle with food)!! We finally finished our main food and got up to leave. That is when the server arrived with ONE of the appetizers. I told him we didn't want it as we were already finished and ready to leave. He set it on the table despite that and said we wouldn't be charged. Will never give this establishment our patronage ever again. They all need to be fired, including the MANAGER!!!

    My higher rating is for the service more than the food. While the food was good, it was hard to distinguish between the two chicken dishes we ordered (Tangerine and General Tao). We both expected the General Tao Chicken to have more spice and kick. The service was good, but it did take an extra minute or two for my cocktail to arrive. For decent Chinese food I recommend them, but they are comparable to other places in town.

    We needed to host 18 people with very short notice on a weeknight. They were able to accommodate and handled our crowd just fine. The menu was more limited than I was expecting. I guess it was too few Chinese and too few Thai. I think it would be better to just pick one cuisine. Everyone enjoyed their meal and felt like they got enough to eat. I did not hear any complaints.

    Food and waiter were excellent. Only issue was there was a large table across from us, diners left as we just started. There was food all over the place...all over the table and floor and dirty dishes. Disgusting actually. Must of counted 20 times that the manager walked by and just ignored it. It was not until another large party that needed the table came that they cleaned it up. Only negative, but a big one

    Salt Lake desperately needs a good Chinese restaurant. There was a time when it seemed like J Wong’s might be up to filling the roll. Unfortunately it has slipped into the same mediocre performance typical of Salt Lake Chinese.

    We’ve loved J Wongs since their beginning. All the food is freshly prepared and their meats are top quality. As with all restaurants, their menu has gone through some changes and some of our old favorites are no longer available. My current favorites are the Thai basil dishes, Panang salmon, walnut shrimp, tom kha gai, all the curries, and honestly, pretty much anything I’ve ordered. We’ve returned to J Wongs over and over because we love it so much! The owners are half Thai/ half Chinese and they know both cuisines. Excellent food, service, and ambiance.

    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!

    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.
