Dinner here after Trip divisor reviews and it was walking distance from hotel. Had a Blue Moon Draft and David's original dumplings. Dumpling was piping hot and delicious - full of meat. The pork pad Thai was a large portion with plenty of meat and crisp veggies but not as flavorful as some I've had other places. Nice decor and... More

We visited David's for the first time with our two adult children, celebrating our daughter's birthday. We ordered ten different small plates and shared. All were delicious. We had five beers between us. The bill was around $75! We all had plenty to eat, and felt like that was a real deal. We will definitely return!

Been going for years and have never been disappointed - excellent food and they have gluten-free options for friends who have dietary restrictions. Go and enjoy!

All three of us enjoyed our orders. We had dumplings, Moo Sho, and two beef dishes. Everything was wonderful and they were willing to modify orders too. Great service.

Was in the mood for Chinese, but didn't want something heavy, and David's did not disappoint! The half fried dumplings were delicious, and the Wonton soup hit the spot. It was a hot day, but the broth was so light but full of flavor, I couldn't have asked for anything better! I had pad Thai for an entree and it... More

Several such restaurants in Raleigh have come and gone, but this has become a favorite for an eclectic mix of people. Great selection of food for everyone, as well as attentive and welcoming service.

I had the hot and sour soup, David's half fried dumplings, and the Shrimp and Scallops with white rice. First of all, the candid advice of my waiter, Christ, was outstanding. The dumplings and shrimp with scallops were just delicious, a reason to return. I had also one of their local micro beers which also was excellent. The only reason... More
