Everyone knows that the best way to find a good ethnic restaurant in an unfamiliar neighborhood is to follow the cops, the cabbies and the working girls to their favorite haunts. But the best way to find a great restaurant? Go where the chefs go when their work nights are done. Roll into David’s Mai Lai Wah late at night and you’re likely to find a few of the city’s best digging into the seafood specialties and noodles in this Chinatown outpost.
After the Auto Show three friends and I decided to get dinner. After reading Philadelphia Magazines review we decided to try David's. The place was 2/3 empty but the waiters were slow to serve our table and acted like it was a major imposition to get us beers or ask us for another round. The food came out at different times and we had to ask for tea, noodles,fortune cookies and the check. My friends were disappointed at the choice of restaurants. On a positive note the food was fresh and pretty good but the rude and uncaring service detracted from the meal. Posted by robert: Feb. February 4th, 2012 at 11:03 AM
