It's difficult to find good Asian food in Austin, so when this place was recommended, we headed over there. Granted, it's sometimes unfair to judge a place on the basis of two lunches, but they were excellent, and we were pleased. I would say it lacks a bit in excitement, both in menu selections and in nuance, but I would... More

We enjoyed a 7 course Chinese meal for a wedding rehearsal dinner venue for 50 plus people here. All courses were served family style with a center rotating island. They served most sides with rice on this night. Seating was tight for this size of group. No one went away hungry!

We had a variety of items. The Peking Duck is excellent! Everything we had was delicious! The service is great and friendly. Also, Asians were there in numbers which us another sign that it was the perfect choice. Highly recommended.

Din Ho Chinese BBQ orange chicken is tasty. Reasonable price, provide roasted duck, not easy to find around here. Stir fry snow pea leaves is also nice.

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.

Another customer favorite is hot and sour soup which is made from scratch. If you cannot decide what to order, our friendly and helpful staff can help you choose something to suit your taste!
