  • Animal cruelty with the aquatic animals in the tank...it's disgusting
  • David's is the late-night spot for industry folk, and offer some of Chinatown's best eats. Don't sleep on the house noodle soup or the salt and pepper chicken wings. [Eater 38 Member]
  • The Salt and Pepper Squid is to die for!
  • Salt and pepper seafood, hong kong style wonton and chicken chow fun (dry style) is a must!
  • Steamed dumplings is great! Try with Ginger dip.
  • I usually like this place BUT BE LOCK THE DOOR AND WON'T LET ANYONE IN. At 2am so messed up. I am sad.
  • Salt and Pepper Chicken is a must when ordering.

  • Kind of like the Wo Hop of Philly Chinatown... Except not nearly as good...
  • I've tried all the salt and pepper dishes and the squid and shrimp triumphs! Delicious! I'd recommend the beef chow fun as well!
  • There are 8 people here. One waiter is just standing there. Only the gods know why I'm not being served.
  • If you like being ignored, this is the place for you. The customer service has gotten worse and worse by Day. You WILL wait 1/2 an hour to an hour for your dish. No one to greet you in the front.
  • Try the shrimp and broccoli.
  • Customers are too white
  • Beef chow fun is legit Cantonese.
  • The walnut shrimp is like candy. Not on the menu.
  • really bad service when we went on a Sunday night. they were really busy and people kept leaving. waited 30 minutes to order & had food thrown at us. didn't think the food was anything special really
  • in a jam? need beer? package goods at David's to the rescue.
  • Enjoy the free tea!
