Great food...service somewhat lacking

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... read 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

My cousin and I ordered the Prawns with Special Salt (delicious! Be forewarned that the prawns are fried with the shells on, so if you're not used to eating shrimp that way, it may be off-putting...I enjoyed it and tell myself the shells add crunch and extra calcium to my diet), the Sauteed Chinese Broccoli with Garlic (YUM!) and a...

I had lunch at Din Ho today with a buddy, and the food was amazing! I started with a large bowl of wonton soup with 12 wontons, each with two shrimp- WONDERFUL! My buddy got both hot and sour soup and egg drop soup, mixing them together and having a tremendous amount to take home. I tasted both of his... More

BBQ pork and marinated chicken are great! Came to this place twice in a week staying in Austin. BBQ duck was average I think.
