Awesome Experience!

This is great Chinese food. The portions are a good size for the price, especially for the downtown location. Service was great and friendly. Would definitely come eat here again!

I eat at Chinatown Downtown probably once every two weeks and have done so for ten years. it's not great Chinese but it's conveniently located on Fifth Street just off Congress Ave. and the wait staff does a super job moving things along and it's very reasonably priced for what you get. I usually order the jalapeno chicken or the... More

someone who is Chinese. The food is well prepared with much thought and service. If there is something you want that is not on the menu, ASK. They will make every effort to accommodate your request. Excellent location with ease to close by local attractions -- lunch or dinner. Enjoy!

Daughter took me here today for lunch. The service was a bit lax. It got better once they figured out we had been sitting there for 10 min. The wanton soup was ok nothing special but the crab puffs were pretty good. The sushi roll was fresh and my general chicken was good. Can check this place off my list

Oh Chinatown, I love your downtown delivery to my condo and the tip is so worth paying just so I don't have to try to park near your establishment. I've had so many things, here are my thoughts: Tuna sushi - pleasantly surprised how fresh you were. Yummy Sadly and pepper chicken - your chef gets it right every time... More

Me and my colleagues decided to try out this Chinatown Restaurant in downtown Austin. We went there for lunch and I had the Salt and Pepper Shrimp(10.50) recommended by the friendly waiter. We shared the spicy wontons(7.95) and they were both delicious. Will definitely come back to try other dishes and their happy hour specials.

Chinatown Downtown offers a break from the common theme of Tex-mex in the downtown area. I walked here from the Hilton Garden Inn. It is a nice walk about 3/4 mile. I was propmply greeted by a friendly host who took my drink order. I had the calamari and jalapeño chicken. Both were very good and my server packaged my... More

Two of my coworkers took me to Chinatown and I ordered their shrimp and vegetables. Cost was $10.75 plus tax which was rather high for a lunch meal, but the food was very good. We had a choice of three soups, fried or steamed rice, and an egg roll.
