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

Being Chinese and having lived in Asia awhile...I missed good Cantonese dining. Friends told us about Din Ho (which translates to "truly good") and how locals (meaning many Austin Asians) regularly dined here must mean something! Din Ho was outstanding! They have daily specials written on their board in Chinese characters for those who can read it and for those... More

This is one of our favorite Chinese restaurants, though we often do take out rather than dine in. Just about everything that we have tried has been very good. We normally tend to the spicy entrees, rather than the BBQ, but this is really a matter of our preference. We have had the BBQ and is quite good. There are... More

Big fan of Din Ho. Very yummy Chinese food, although they dont have dimsums on their menu. But try their sauteed bokchoy, pan fried noodles and seabass in special salt, and you'll be hooked. Bursting with flavour, their quantities are pretty good too. Great place for a family dinner or lunch!

Went here with family on Saturday night and could tell quickly it was a favorite with locals, especially those of Asian heritage. Large round table was perfect for the 6 of us, and we were all happy with the food. Service was fun to watch as the servers scurried around in the crowd, all trying mightily to satisfy diners.

This is a great place to go with a group of friends. The big round tables and easygoing atmosphere lend to free flowing conversation. The BBQ pork is delicious and succulent, and my main reason for eating there. The pork fried rice is also pretty good.
