It was pretty good

Daughter took me here today for lunch. The service was a bit lax. It got better once they figured out we had been sitting there for 10 min. The wanton soup was ok nothing special but the crab puffs were pretty good. The sushi roll was fresh and my general chicken was good. Can check this place off... read more

Oh Chinatown, I love your downtown delivery to my condo and the tip is so worth paying just so I don't have to try to park near your establishment. I've had so many things, here are my thoughts: Tuna sushi - pleasantly surprised how fresh you were. Yummy Sadly and pepper chicken - your chef gets it right every time... More

Me and my colleagues decided to try out this Chinatown Restaurant in downtown Austin. We went there for lunch and I had the Salt and Pepper Shrimp(10.50) recommended by the friendly waiter. We shared the spicy wontons(7.95) and they were both delicious. Will definitely come back to try other dishes and their happy hour specials.

Chinatown Downtown offers a break from the common theme of Tex-mex in the downtown area. I walked here from the Hilton Garden Inn. It is a nice walk about 3/4 mile. I was propmply greeted by a friendly host who took my drink order. I had the calamari and jalapeño chicken. Both were very good and my server packaged my... More

Two of my coworkers took me to Chinatown and I ordered their shrimp and vegetables. Cost was $10.75 plus tax which was rather high for a lunch meal, but the food was very good. We had a choice of three soups, fried or steamed rice, and an egg roll.

Most Chinese restaurants have a menu which reads like a Russian novel. While impressive, I always wonder how a restaurant, ANY restaurant, can do a 100 different dishes well without taking shortcuts (like serving pre-prepared food, using heat lamps, etc.) Chinatown has a small menu, and each dish I've tried on it (about a dozen) have all been delicious.

Living here in Austin, one can get sick of the constant Tex-Mex eatery's on every corner. My friends an I decided to try something different but wanted to stay clear of a large chain like PF Chengs. So to Chinatown Downtown we went, and I am so glad that we did. We ended up going during happy hour, and WOW,... More

During a one week stay in Austin, this was the best meal I had. (Note: I did not patronize any of the top dollar places in town.) Above average Chinese food, good service. A welcome respite from all of the less than mediocre TexMex restaurants.
