Cindy Lee Cafe

264 S. Main, Salt Lake City, 84101
801-359-4544
Cindy Lee Cafe offers healthy and authentic Chinese/ Vietnamese fare at bargain prices, all cooked fresh. Combos—such as the one that includes ham-fried rice, an eggroll and some of tastiest orange chicken a person can find this side of the Pacific—will cost you less than $8. Heaping portions of delicious pad thai and Mongolian beef will make your mouth water. Despite its central location, Cindy Lee Cafe seems to be the bestkept secret in Salt Lake City. For those in the know, it’s a solid choice for quality, authentic Asian food.

I am seriously ruined after Cindy Lee. I find myself comparing all other Asian food to them and they everyone else always fails miserably... When they closed down a while back for remodeling, I thought I was going to die. I hope they never go away, because if they do, I am going to have to stalk them for that yummy General Tso's Bean Curd.

Was this an accident? Our first dining experience after being away from Utah for 3 years, and it was amazing! We were skeptical as this was the only restaurant we passed on our 3 mile walk around the 200 s block. We were so hungry, we had to stop. The dining room was gorgeous, decorated in the typical manner that you'd expect an Asian restaurant to look. We were promptly greeted and seated. And before we knew it, we'd ordered Caramel Pork, Sate Bean Curd, and Fresh Spring Rolls. I don't think 5 minutes passed before we had our spring rolls. I couldn't believe how fresh they were. Perhaps two minutes later, and our main course was on the table. The sauces were incredible, the meat perfectly prepared. Our bean curd could have been more crispy, but it still tasted great. The server was attentive, but not overwhelming, the food impeccable. I highly recommend.
