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

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...
