“Great place for casual or lunch Chinese”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

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 friendly staff . A local favorite.

“Good value”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

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.

“Best Chinese food we have ever had.”
Reviewed September 25, 2008

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 fortune cookie. The portions are more than generous and the waitstaff is extremely kind. We have never gotten a bad meal from Twin Lion. I recommend this restaurant to everyone.
