Austin in a weekend

Wow... if you are looking for very authentic Chinese food in Austin ...this is the place. We dined with a large party and found the food and service to be excellent even although the place was packed.

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.

The Din Ho has been a long time favorite. The food is always freshly prepared and the staff is friendly and attentive. No doubt that the Din Ho is the best Chinese restaurant in Central Texas, and beyond!!

Without a doubt, the best Chinese food I've had in Austin thus far. The meat was tender and delicious and the sauce was excellent. The portions were generous and they didn't skimp on the rice. I went on a Sunday evening and the wait was probably 5 minutes. The customer service was pretty good. I had my primary server, the... More

Authentic Chinese. The restaurant has large tables with a rotating plateau designed to facilitate to sharing of dishes among guest. Food was excellent and at excellent value, 1 meal can easily feed 2 or 3 people. Very fast service. Much recommended.

Best Chinese atmosphere in Austin. Anyplace with 20 dead ducks hanging in the windows has got to be a winner right? Food is excellent and volume is high so always fresh. HOWEVER, service is horrible at times. I've had better on a bad day in Kowloon. I'm totally cool with waiting 1 1/2 hour for a table. On February 21st... More

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
