Family owned & operated, this Chinese BBQ & Seafood Restaurant is the real deal! Located in a strip shopping center with plenty of parking, not anything fancy; it's all about the food! Upon entering, you will note the continuous beat on the butcher's block as the BBQ duck & pork hang to the left of the front door. Live lobster,... More

Chinese restaurants are a dime a dozen in Austin, TX but Din Ho was the most authentic that I've been to so far. Ann and I needed one of those big round banquet tables to accommodate our orders. This is what we had: Stir Fried Seafood Combo with House Special Sauce Shrimp, scallops, squid, rolled fish balls, and crab meat... More

We came with a party of 7 ready to eat. The waitress suggested we order one of the group packages, but we decided to order on our own. We ordered so many plates that I couldn't possible remember all of them, but that's what you do when you eat family style. To me it was all delicious. But some of... More

VERY GOOD CHINESE FOOD! Beijing duck was very well prepared and delicious, and the general tao's was the best I have ever had (and I have been eating that dish at Chinese restaurants for years). The restaurant was packed (it was a rainy Friday night) but service was phenomenal. We were well cared for and well fed! We sat near... More

this was a great place to go when we were in town. It was recommended by some friends so we decided to go. The menu is very large and hard to understand but that could be because we are not professional Chinese eaters. Service was a little slow to be honest and when we asked the server to explain some...

Whether it was eggplant with chicken spicy, bbq combination, sweet/sour soup, or beef chow fun--- everything tasted like you were in Canton Province. Very authentic!

I have always been a sceptic about eating at a Chinese restaurant in North America since I have easy access to these dishes in Asia. My mother who resides in San Antonio insisted we find a good Chinese restaurant in Austin during our visit. We checked Tripadvisor and found this restaurant. We were a family of 4 adults and a...

Went with my husband based upon the reviews on Trip advisor. With just the two of us, we could only sample two items, the egg drop soup, and the chow fun. The soup was rich and flavorful, and the portion was at least one quart! The beef chow fun was among the very best I have ever had. Can't wait... More

One of only 2 Chinese restaurants in Austin! Feels like NYC or SF. Guy up front hacking up hog and duck carcasses. Full of Chinese customers and servers. Authentic. Delicious Chinese BBQ. Antithesis of PF Chang's.

Very Impressed! We were visiting Austin from San Antonio and had a craving for good Chinese food. Did a Yelp and Trip advisor research, drove over and the line was outside to door. We waited 30 mins and it was well worth the wait. I had the Seafood platter, it came out sizzling hot, the egg rolls were fresh, crisp... More
