Thanks. But as for the mustard seed: I must warn you that I've spoken/worked with 2-3 people who've cooked there, and the kitchen is bar none, one of the filthiest in Davis. In addition to that: there is a commonly used sysco-distributed frozen pesto (that obviously needs to be stored in the freezer or refrigerator) which the owner/kitchen manager of the mustard seed insisted needed only to be stored at room temp....weird. I would strongly recommend against eating there-for food safety reasons. --["DianaChristofersen"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2007-02-22 09:40:51'' [[nbsp]] This is the coolest page I have ever seen. --["JoshFernandez"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2007-03-21 11:19:22'' [[nbsp]] I like your coice of Noodle Express.

The number generally reflects the taste of the food and not its price or quantity or the atmosphere of the place or the service of the workers. However, if food is especially pricy that may make me in a more judgemental mood while eating, so these places (unintentionally may be held to a slightly higher standard) the reverse is obviously true for cheap food. The restaurants are ranked in order of best food to worse food within a given category.<br> + <br> + (i did not rate fast food chains because most people know what their food tastes like anyway)<br> + <br> + dollar signs do not take into account ["lunch specials"].<br> + $ = most entrees under 6<br> + $$ = entrees in the 6-9 range<br> + $$$ = entrees in the 9-12 range<br> + $$$$ = entrees in the 12-16 range<br> + $$$$$ = most entrees 16+<br> + <br> + '''California eclectic'''<br> + * ["Seasons"] - $$$$$ (9) I think this place is the best upscale place in Davis, a lot of tasty, unique, seasonal dishes. The prices are reasonable for the high quality of service, food, and ambiance.<br> + * ["Pluto's"] - $ (7.5) good salad for a decent price. I love their balsamic dressing.<br> + * ["Delta of Venus"] - $$ (7) I like the clean and fresh flavors of this place. Portions are smaller but still reasonable. And hurray their wireless works the best out of the places i have brough my computer in town.<br> + * ["Crepeville"] - $$ (7) huge portions and good food, i have occasionally gotten a burnt crepe though.<br> + * ["Stone's Cafe &amp; Catering"] - $ (6.5) pretty decent food at a good price. Clean flavors, but a lot of their food can be a little too sweet<br> + * ["Fuzio"] - $$$ (6.5) Decent food, but small portions for dishes that are just thrown haphazardly in a bowl.<br> + * ["Coffee House"] - $ (6.5) cheap, healthy, fast food and you can sample anything so there is no risk. Loved the grilled eggplant with roasted red pepper sandwich.<br> + * ["Mustard Seed"] - $$$$$ (6.5) A nice atmosphere, but Seasons is far more consistent. Great fancy side salads though.<br> + * ["Cafe Bernardo"] - $$ (6) i like their butternut squash soup, but their food is pretty average California eclectic fair and slightly overpriced for an order at the counter place.<br> + * ["Bistro 33"] - $$$$ (5.5) has some good moments, but over all it is overpriced pretentious food gone awry in a sports bar setting.<br> + * ["Bakers Square"] - $$$ (4.5) your average Americana place. A little above Denny's quality.<br> + <br> + '''Chinese'''<br> + * ["Noodle Express"] - $$ (8) best overall Chinese food at Davis. Their green beans are out of this world. The reason why i choose this place as best Chinese is mainly due to the fact that they are the only place in town that does both Americanized and real Chinese dishes well. Other recommended items include: bock choy with whole garlic (not on menu), noodles with pork and sweet bean paste, fish fillet in black bean sauce, Szechuan tofu, and Mongolian chicken.<br> + * ["Shanghai Town"] - $ (8) good Chinese food for a great price, and can you believe it? Dim Sum in Davis... yay :). 12 steamed dumplings for 4 and change. I recommend the Tan Tan noodles, spicy string beans, shanghai chow mein, various dim sum items. Bad service and bad Americanized dishes prevent this place from being number one.<br> + * ["Hometown Chinese Food"] - $ (8) The best take out Chinese place in Davis. Best garlic eggplant in Davis as well. Limited menu, but whats on there is pretty good.<br> + * ["Davis Noodle City"] - $$ (7.5) love the chef's noodle salad, schichuan eggplant, and also like their weak kim chi. Everything else is pretty average.<br> + * ["Ding How"] - $$ (6.5) pretty decent Chinese food. The specialty here is the fake meats. I am a carnivore all the way but this fake meat tasted better than their real stuff (real meat dishes are bellow average though). Ask for their vegetarian menu.<br> + * ["Wok of Flame"] - $$ (6.5) Best quality meat used in a Davis chinese restaurant. They actually use pure breast meat in their fried chicken dishes, and still keep it very tender. However, the sauces make the flavors just average.<br> + <br> + * ["Jade Garden"] - $$ (6.5) this place is decent, but not quite up there with the top 4. Some dishes are very good, others are big fat losers; choose wisely. I do like their Chinese broccoli a lot, but overall their vegetables seem to be slightly overcooked.<br> + * ["Silver Dragon"] - $$ (5.5) ok Chinese food at a reasonable price. However, the waiter with the blushed face always seems drunk and is quite annoying.<br> + * ["Shangri-la Restaurant"]- $$ (5) The service was the best in Davis, with complimentary wontons and constant drink and rice refills. The flavors were decent, but one of the dishes had a really uncomfortable fluoride aftertaste.<br> + * ["House of Chang"] - $$ (5) maybe its what i ordered but this place did not live up to the Wiki hipe and seemed more generic than people suggest<br> + * ["Yummy Guide"] - $$ (4.5) The food i had was not great, but i think they do a better job than old teahouse serving some similar kinds of things. My major complaint is that they really over cook their rice badly.<br> + * ["Great Wall of China II"] - $$ (4.5) their fried chicken dishes are decent because they’re crispier than other places, but the food is overall kind of greasy and generic. Also a fairly cheap lunch buffet with a lot of selection but marginal quality.<br> + * ["Orange Hut"] - $ (4.5) a hint better than Wolk'N roll, but also a little more expensive and less selection.<br> + * ["Hunan"] - $$ (4.5) speaking of generic, this place's food is similar in quality to panda express. Plus they have been known for shady business practices, but you do get tons of food for little $$ during the lunch hours.<br> + * ["Wok'N Roll"] - $ (4.5) Certainly not the greatest food, but its cheap and the hot and sour soup in under a buck.<br> + * ["Old Teahouse"] - $ (3) a few decent dishes amongst a sea of really bad tasting food. Plus their boba has gotten worse in the last few years.<br> + <br> + <br> + '''European'''<br> + * ["London Fish'n Chips"] - $ (7) really good fried food, however it doesn't take that much skill to make fried food taste good. Their oysters and fish seem to be the freshest of the items.<br> + <br> + '''Indian/Afghan'''<br> + * ["Kabul Afghan Cuisine"] - $$$ (8) the food here is great and the atmosphere is nicer than most places. i think the flavors here are kind of similar to a fusion of Indian and Middle Eastern foods. The buffet is not so good though.<br> + * ["Kathmandu Kitchen"] - $$$$ (6.5) The food here is quite good. Their buffet is a good deal, and the quality and selection is better than Rajas. However, the dinners are way too expensive for the rude service and mediocre atmosphere.<br> + * ["Indyna Bistro"] - $$$ (6) The indian food in Davis is by no means spectacular. however, this one may be the best for your money.<br> + * ["Raja's"] - $$ (5) cheap Indian food during the all you can eat buffet, but the quality and selection is not so good.<br> + <br> + '''Italian/Pizza'''<br> + * ["Village Bakery"] - $ (9) this place has the best pizza in Davis by far. if you prefer New York style pizza there is finally a place to go. $2.00 french and sourdough baguettes are also an good deal.<br> + * ["Zia's Delicatessen"] - $$ (6.5) good quality Italian deli sandwiches<br> + * ["Caffe Italia"] - $$$ (4.5) bad Italian seems to be Davis's specialty, unfortunately other places don't get any better<br> + * ["Woodstock's Pizza"] - $ (4.5) not as bad as some people say, but village bakery puts them to shame<br> + * ["Mountain Mike's Pizza"] - $$$ (4.5) decent pizza but still not as good as village bakery or symposium<br> + * ["Strings Italian Cafe"] - $$$ (3) mushy overcooked pasta at an Italian place? I wouldn't eat at their all you can eat pasta dinner if it were 1.99.<br> + <br> + '''Japanese/Korean'''<br> + * ["Nobu Hiro"] - $$$ (7.5) best value for Japanese in Davis, the only downside is that their selection isn't too big. 9 and change for a double sashimi bento box is the cheapest sashimi you can find in town (they cut it thicker so i dont like the tuna, go for the salmon)<br> + * ["Moshi Moshi"] - $$$$ (7.5) most innovative rolls, but the rest of the food is nothing special.<br> + * ["Zen Toro"] - (7.5) $$$$ Probably the best quality fish you will find in Davis. This would be my favorite Davis Japanese, but their side dishes are borderline unservable for a classy restaurant.<br> + * ["Mirai"] - $$$ (6.5) while their sushi is just ok, their soup/noodle dishes are the best in town.<br> + * ["Fuji Chef"]- $$$ (6) huge selection in their lunch buffet, just a little lacking in quality, and a long wait for a table<br> + * ["Manna Korean Restaurant"] - (5.5) $$ serves both Korean and Japanese food. Prices are somewhat expensive for a fast food ambiance. Taste is decent though, but considerably worse than Korean places i have tried outside of Davis.<br> + * ["Osaka Sushi"] - $$$$ (5) if you want to fork over the money go to Moshi Moshi or Zen Toro, this place is overpriced for the quality.<br> + * ["Sushi Unlimited"] - $$$$$ (4.5) like Osaka but even more expensive. When dishes are this expensive they need to be a lot better.<br> + <br> + '''Mexican/Southwestern'''<br> + * ["Taqueria Guadalajara"] - $ (5.5) the pastor is decent, but the food can be overall kind of bland. It is the only place that has free all you can eat chips with dine in orders. Pretty much up to par with other davis locations.<br> + * ["Taqueria Davis"]- $$ (5.5) This place is good for Davis (see ["woodland restaurants"] for better Mexican food). I like their asada and Mexico City tacos.<br> + * ["El Mariachi"] - $$ (5) Nice people. Also they have a great salsa bar and the best liquados and horchata. They are the only Mexican place in Davis that serves napales, but if you took out the salsa bar the food is not good.<br> + * ["Chuy's Taqueria"] - $ (5) decent adobada/pastor and probably the best lengua in Davis. Like the salsa as well, but the fish tacos were very overated by other wikians.<br> + * ["Dos Coyotes"] - $$ (4) blahness. mildly decent southwest food if you get a salad, but the burritos leave something to be desired.<br> + * ["La Esperanza"] - $$$ (2.5) all i can say is that this place is low quality food for high prices. You'd be tough to find a meal here under ten dollars and better quality chicken can be found to the left and right of this place (subway and teriyaki express).<br> + <br> + '''Middle eastern/Mediterranean'''<br> + * ["Sam's Mediterranean Cuisine"] - $ (7) this is the best place to get a pita in Davis (especially the falafel), the humus is not good though.<br> + * ["Ali Baba"] - $ (6.5) solid food at a decent price. you may have to wait a while for your food during the dinner hour<br> + * ["Cafe Mediterranee"] - $$ (6.5) great menu, on paper, that allows you to sample many items on one plate. however, some of the food is inconsistent. the chicken was great, falafels were burnt and dry, and the humus was just ok.<br> + * ["Symposium"] - $$$$ (6) the Greek food is not as good as the Greek places in LA. i don't think they make their own pita, since it is served cold with their dips and tastes store bought. But their pizza is the 2nd best in Davis (behind village bakery) and cheaper than the entrees.<br> + * ["Pita Pit"]- $ (5) thank god there is a place other than old teahouse open late in Davis. The Pita Pit is open until 3am. the food is decent and healthy but the service isn't good.<br> + <br> + '''Pilipino'''<br> + * ["Sugar and Spice"] - $ (6.5) The only Pilipino food in Davis. Nice change of pace and reasonable prices for the meals. The food can be somewhat greesy, bland or dry depending on what you order, but its usually pretty decent overall.<br> + <br> + '''Thai'''<br> + * ["Thai Recipes"] - $$$ (8) The Thai food here is less sweet than standard Americanized Thai food and offers a spicy scale that can suite anyone's tastes. Slightly more expensive than Nakorn and 2K, but well worth it.<br> + * ["2K Thai Food"] - $$$ (8) as for the food, the restaurant is one of the better Thai places in Davis. The all black dress of the servers really classed up the place as well.<br> + * ["Thai Nakorn"] - $$ (7.5) best value for Thai lunch in Davis. Also all dinner entrees come with free rice, a not too popular trend in Davis.<br> + * ["Thai Bistro"] - $$$ (7.5) decent fresh tasting Thai food and the ambiance is nice. The food is at the same level as the other good thai places, just a tad bit pricier. Although their Pad Kee Moa is the best in town.<br> + * ["Sophia's Thai Kitchen"] - $$ (6) not bad, but other Thai places in Davis are better. Bottomless Thai tea is good though<br> + <br> + '''Vietnamese'''<br> + * ["Hoa Viet"] - $$ (7) good Vietnamese food for Davis at fairly cheap prices<br> + * ["Huong Lan Sandwiches"] - $ (7) I love their veggie sandwich and its only 2.49, sandwiches range in price from $1.99 - $2.49<br> + * ["Sunrise Restaurant"] - $ (4.5) the food is ok (sandwiches worse than Huong Lan and entrees worse than hoa viet) and the service is kind of slow.<br> + <br> + '''Sac Restaurants'''<br> + * ["New Canton"] - $$$ (9) best dim sum in sac/yolo county by far, and actually the best dim sum i have had in California<br> + * ["L' Orchid"] - $$$ (8.5) Great Vietnamese food in a classy yet casual setting.<br> + * ["OZ"] - $$$$$ (8) The best Korean around, equipped with table top BBQ. Although the ambiance is nice its quite pricey compared to places in LA<br> + * ["Kaveri Madras Cuisine"] - $$$ (8) Best Indian i have had in the Davis/Sac area. The dinner buffet is great for $11.99. However not as good as the Indian places in the LA area.<br> + * ["Tapa the World"] - $$$$ (7.5) Many good dishes, and a cool atmosphere. However, the deserts weren't very good.<br> + * ["Frank Fat's"] - $$$ (7.5) The atmosphere is nice, and they have a lot of good dishes. But overall the menu is somewhat hit and miss.<br> + * ["Mikuni"] - $$$$ (7.5) good Japanese food, but more expensive than the places in Davis.<br> + * ["Arigato sushi"] - $$$ (5.5) the sushi rolls are good for the money (half off rolls pretty much all the time), but the quality is overall not so great, and the pictures on the menu don't look anything like what you get.<br> + <br> + '''Woodland/Winters Restaurants'''<br> + * ["El Paisano Taco Truck"] - $ (8.5) just off the main st. exit in woodland (make a left, and its right there on your left) best tacos, and only a buck including tax. The horchata is not very good, but its only a buck as well. Best tacos ive had since I lived in LA.<br> + * ["Pad Thai Restaurant"] - $$ (8) better curry than the davis restaurants, but worse pad thai (isnt that a coincidence).<br> + * [wiki:Woodland "Quetzal"] - $ (8) best overall mexican i have had in the yolo area. Excellent homemade tortillas and gorditas.<br> + * ["El Jubilete"] - $$ (7) excellent Lengua, and really nice people. The rest of the food we had was average for a mexican restaurant in the yolo area.<br> + * ["Putah Creek Cafe"] - $$ (6.5) located in winters, this is the best diner food in the yolo area, but nothing too amazing. Next time im getting there early to try their breakfast.<br> + * ["Ono Teriyaki"] - $ (6.5) pretty good food for a reasonable price, and the people are really nice. I have only tried the fried items, i will be back for the grilled ones, so the rating may change soon.<br> + * [wiki:Woodland "Sizzling Hot Mongolian BBQ"] - $$$ (5.5) decent mongolian BBQ, but one bowl for 6.75 is kind of pricey for lunch (considering how much it shrinks down after cooking)<br> + * [wiki:Woodland "Golden Dragon Restaurant"] - $$ (5.5) This place serves average Chinese food at a decent price. However, considering that 7/16 of the places in Davis are better, it is not worth the drive.<br> + ----</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div>
