Being quite a distance from my favorite Chinese restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area, I feel quite at home at The Twin Lion. I love Chow Fun (wide rice noodle), my staple whilst visiting the San Francisco Bay Area. Today, I had the Beef Chow Fun which was perfect, not dry nor flooded heavily with gravy. The won-ton soup...

We eat here a lot and find that the food is consistently high in quality and in taste. Wait staff is excellent and attentive. Their egg rolls are some of the best in town along with their hot and sour soup. Their entrees are not expensive(in the 7-8 dollar range), but provide a lot of quality for a small price.... More

We were craving Chinese when in town, and this was a great stop. Very quick lunch, and most entrees were $7 (included soup, eggroll, and rice). Meat and veggies were both good (chicken wasn't gristly like it is in many Chinese places). Only downside would be the amount of sauce used- lots of brown sauce, too much really.

We eat at this restaurant quite often and have never had a bad meal. The staff is both efficient and friendly. The food is a varied menu of oriental food and everything we have tried has been good, from the noodle bowls to the soups, to the traditional Chinese dishes.

My husband found this restaurant at lunch one day and loved it. He and I went one night for dinner. The food is fresh cooked served hot and steaming. I had the Wonderful Shrimp and he had the Wonderful Chicken. Both are great. The egg roll was hot and crispy and delicious. The wonton soup was one of the best... More

Very good, small Chinese restaurant in NW Austin that has been there as long as i can recall... always good food, consistent, and very good service. Lunch specials very reasonable ($6 - $7 for most), and the Sesame chicken was very good; really liked that you can order brown rice for $1 extra... most nearby places don't offer that. Very... More

At lunch time this place is packed but service is quick and the food is good. Parking can be a real problem. Large selection of lunch specials.

Simply put, Twin Lion is the best Chinese restaurant my family and I have ever been to. The selection is amazing, delicious, and the prices are unbelievable. There is virtually nothing on the lunch menu over 6 dollars. For that price, you can get a bowl of soup, an entree with fried or steamed rice, an egg roll, and a... More
