Best Chinese Restaurants in Salt Lake City [Updated 2022] | Salt Plate City

“Forget it, Jake. It’s Chinatown.”
-Lawrence Walsh, Chinatown [1974]

I love SLC’s Chinese food options because the best restaurants are always hiding in plain sight behind a 3-star Yelp review. It must be that last bit of old “sheltered” Utah hanging on because the same people who would cut in front of their own bishop for orange chicken at Panda Express instantly become an amateur health inspector at any authentic Chinese restaurant in SLC. So don’t trust the ratings when it comes to SLC’s Chinese food options. If you want to find the Best Chinese Restaurants in Salt Lake City you need to ask people you trust, curate a list of hot spots (and hot spots that serve hot pot), and start checking them off yourself. And what are we at Salt Plate City other than that trusted friend?

Whether you are looking for the great Chinese takeout classics, weekend dim sum, the Chinese hot pot experience, some famed xiaolongbao, or elevated Chinese cuisine for a special date night, check out our list of the Best Chinese Restaurants in Salt Lake City. As always, we want to hear from you! Didn’t see your favorite SLC Chinese restaurant on our list? Tell us where we need to go next in the comments below!
