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.
