Madame and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Din Ho on a recent rainy Sunday evening. Even though we arrived early -- around 6:15 -- the place was busy, and we were lucky to get a table because quite a few who arrived shortly after us had to wait for ten or fifteen minutes. (They don't do reservations for... More

I've raved in the past about First Chinese BBQ in the China Center on North Lamar, but I think I have a new favorite after my sister suggested Din Ho. The biggest reason is the duck. Nobody does Duck like the Chinese and this duck blew me away, Never had such crispy skin, tender meat, really outstanding. We also had... More

This is the REAL DEAL!!! Though in a strip mall don't be put off. It is authentic, fresh and WONDERFUL! The Duck Fried rice is just down right savory. Shrimp Lo Mein Crispy noodle, orange chicken, pepper steak, bar b q pork n duck plate are our favs. Never got a dish that disappointed.

Went to the restaurant with my whole family. Order 5 entrees and 1 soup. All entrees were like left over, tasteless and not even warm. Service was equally bad. Will never go again.

We love this place. The bbq pork is simply outstanding. You cannot go wrong with it. They also have Peking duck that is tasty. It is in a strip mall up north but you don't come here for ambience. You come for the food. The service is OK--not great but not horrible either. The only real issue is that they... More

Decided to try this Asian eatery due to relatively positive review online. It's located next to a small Asian supermarket, and it's crowded. Upon arrival, the place is in a chaotic situation with bunch of confused customers jammed the entrance. Once we are seated, you have to wave down someone walking by to serve you. Then, it took 30-min or... More
