Description: With every dish made fresh to order, ducks, chickens and pigs hanging by the window and tanks filled with live lobsters and crabs, Din Ho guarantees you a truly authentic experience. Our restaurant stands out as the place to go for Chinese cuisine in the heart of Texas and has garnered numerous recognitions and rewards including the Austin Chronicle’s readers’ poll award for best Chinese three years in a row.A definite must have when dining with us is our Beijing duck. Roasted to perfection with crispy skin and succulent moist meat, each platter of duck is served with 10 fluffy buns, green onion and sweet bean sauce. 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! On top of all our food offerings, we also carry various brands of beer and wine.We are a lively place for all sorts of gatherings, whether you’re eating out with family or catching up with old friends, please stop by for an amazing dining experience.

Big fan of Din Ho. Very yummy Chinese food, although they dont have dimsums on their menu. But try their sauteed bokchoy, pan fried noodles and seabass in special salt, and you'll be hooked. Bursting with flavour, their quantities are pretty good too. Great place for a family dinner or lunch!

Went here with family on Saturday night and could tell quickly it was a favorite with locals, especially those of Asian heritage. Large round table was perfect for the 6 of us, and we were all happy with the food. Service was fun to watch as the servers scurried around in the crowd, all trying mightily to satisfy diners. Service a bit spotty (forgot our soup, quickly made good), but all in all we had a fine night. Shrimp dishes were particularly good, as was orange beef.

This is a great place to go with a group of friends. The big round tables and easygoing atmosphere lend to free flowing conversation. The BBQ pork is delicious and succulent, and my main reason for eating there. The pork fried rice is also pretty good.

If you are looking for a huge menu, great Chinese food, and good service -- check out the Din Ho. The place is not easy to find (unless you have a GPS and their address) but just look for the Target on 183 and/or the Hong Kong Supermarket in that area. The menu is very large - so you should be able to find plenty of great options to dine on.
The lobster stir-fry is great. And so are the various greens stir-fried as well.
If you speak Chinese - you can also practice your skills - added bonus - the staff will help you do so and is more than ready to speak with you

Fast take out, a bit pricey. We had half a bejing duck and bbq combo. Ok, but i prefer the pancakes to the buns for the duck. The pork was very good (and i don't like pork), but the duck was not crispy enough, i have had better. They seemed to also do a lot of seafood.

Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed our BBQ. I'm sorry to hear the Roast Duck was only so-so it doesn't sound like us. We pride ourselves in serving fresh roast meats, our Beijing Duck served with steam buns, hoisin sauce, and fresh cut green onions are one of our best . We hope you drop by for dinner sometimes we have a great seafood selection and also serve live lobsters and crabs. We hope to impress you on your next visit.
