Location: 824 E. 800 North, Orem
Yelp review: “This place is nothing short of amazing. The chicken tastes so good, fall off the bone and seasoned to perfection. I also recommend the plantains and the sweet potato fries. We will definitely be returning, a 1/2 chicken is plenty for 2.” – Lauren W.

7. Yummy’s BBQ and Sushi
You have a lot to live up to if you have “yummy” in the name of your restaurant, and Yummy’s BBQ and Sushi sure does. With sumptuous Korean BBQ and delightful sushi offerings, there’s something for every taste bud.
Location: 360 S. State St., Suite 102, Orem
Yelp review: "My favorite Korean bbq in Utah! A definite must try if you want a nice dinner out! Again prices are typical of an AYCE kbbq. I love how much sides they have and they make their kimchi in house! The customer service was also great and accommodating." - Aaron H.
6. Oishii Sushi
This is another sort of unpretentious, blink and you’ll miss, kind of restaurant. Oishii is right in the middle of a shopping center in north Orem, but its flavor and quality sushi makes it a true standout. There’s everything from tuna rolls for the simple sushi lover to the Playboy, with shrimp tempura, spicy mayo and tobiko on top.
Location: 902 N. State St., Orem
Yelp review: “This is a fantastic place! My bff and I go to Oishii at least every two weeks! Service is impressive and prices are great!” – Lupita C.
5. Asado Argentinian Grill
If you want Fresh rib eye, chicken and empanadas, be sure to hit up Asado Argentinian Grill. Don’t forget a flan or chaja for dessert!
Location: 360 S. State St., Suite 153, Orem
Yelp review: “We really liked this place and will definitely come back. The waitress and owner were both very nice. The hanger steak was delicious and we thought this place was a better version of Tucano's (but Argentinian).” – Thomas B.
4. Golden Thai Cuisine
Golden Thai Cuisine is a family-operated restaurant that serves fresh food in the flavors from Thailand.
Location: 1069 S. 750 East, Orem
Yelp Review: "It was so delicious I forgot to take pictures after the appetizer. We had Pad Thai, Broccoli Beef & Pumpkin Curry. Each dish had unique and interesting flavors.
The pad Thai is traditional and delicious - not too wet and at 3 stars enough heat but not too much for the novices. I add extra spice always! The Beef was rich and flavorful. The veggies were not over steamed - toothsome but still tender. The pumpkin curry is on a level of its own...pure coconut milk with layers of goodness throughout.
Service is always fantastic - the owner remembers every time you are in. A perfect lunch or dinner spot." - Jessica G.
3. Joe’s Café
If you’ve ever been to Joe’s Café, you won’t be surprised this is at the top of the list. The café is only open for breakfast and lunch, each dish made with that extra bit of southern hospitality and charm. Whether you’re there for a burger or an omelet, you won’t be disappointed.
Location: 1126 S. State St., Orem
Yelp review: “I ate here for the first time today, and I LOVED it! Joe's friendly personality and enthusiasm for his food is contagious. Everyone was laughing and smiling. My French toast combo tasted Fantastic and was Huge. I will definitely be back. Thanks Joe! “ – Tiffany B.
2. Antonella’s Café
Blink and you’ll miss this unassuming little café tucked away by Classic Skating in Orem. Freshly baked baguettes, savory sandwiches and to-die-for tiramisu are classics at Antonella’s Café.
Location: 154 S. State St., Orem
Yelp review: “I've driven up and down State for 2.5 years, continuously passing up Antonella's because I did not want to stop on the side of the road. I finally decided to bring a friend while she was visiting, and boy am I glad I did!!” – LilyAnne R.
1. Asa Ramen
This isn’t your college roommate’s ramen. This is upgraded, ridiculously good ramen. Grab a classic tonkatsu ramen or some chashu buns to really see what this little hole in the wall is all about.
Location: 1120 S. State St., Orem
Yelp review: I've been craving good ramen since I had it in Japan last year and haven't been satisfied until I found this place. It tasted exactly like the ramen I had in Japan! The price is great for what you get because even the smaller size is pretty large and they definitely don't skimp on all the good stuff such as the noodles and meat.” – Danielle T.
