Two of us shared the Beijing Duck, Roast Pork, and the Sautéed Snow Pea Leaves. The meal was delicious, the staff was friendly, and we left full and happy.

Just enjoyed a fantastic lunch at Din Ho. The hot and sour soup bowl is huge and the flavors are spot on! Also enjoyed the water spinach and the curry chicken. The sauce on the sesame beef was extremely good, and the meat was very tender and lean. Service was attentive and the employees we interacted with were very kind.

When in Austin and you love Chinese foods, Din Ho is the place to go. The foods were freshly cooked, delicious, and efficiently served in no time. The price is right, too, which merited the 5-star rating from me.

We went there for dinner in the Labor Day weekend. Restaurant was crowded although it was around 9:30pm. The roasted duck was ok, char xiu was kinda dry. Wonton noodle soup was good. The Shrimps with walnut n maionaise was great. Big portions! Price was fairly right. Will definitely come back again..

The location was out of the way for me, but in the end was well worth the drive. Food went above and beyond in the flavor category! So Yummy, and that's saying a lot, I'm not usually a fan of Chinese food period! Very large portions, so either come hungry and expect to take your leftovers home or bring friends.... More

Food experience was amazing. Service was lacking throughout the meal. Only plus side was the 'water' boy who was very attentive but wasn't able to get our server in gear to take our order in timely manner. Seemed to have 1 or 2 people actually taking orders. Place was packed and many were looking around for waiters. When we did... More

I have eaten here a number of times over the last couple of years and I have to say it is some of the best Chinese food I have found in the states and outside of Hong Kong or Taipei. Very good and very authentic. Take a large group if you can, so you can try more than a couple... More

We found this is best rated Chinese restaurant in Austin, so I went there with my boyfriend when we were travelling in Taxes. We ordered stir-fry seafood and vegetable dishes. The taste was OK, the price's kind of expensive base on the amont and the quality of the food, it is definitely not a "that good". Btw, the waitress are... More

I ate lunch with 5 of my coworkers at Din Ho Chinese BBQ. All the food was great. The service was fast as well. Our waitress was borderline rude. She kept hitting me in the arm with the dishes as she put the food in the center of the table and while she removed the empty plates. I need to... More
