Best Chinese in Austin – The little China Cafe, tucked away in a shopping center in North Austin, gets my vote for the best chinese food in Austin. Consistently excellent entrees include the Mongolian Lamb (an unusual, spicy dish) and the General Tso's Chicken (not on the menu but always available). Only caveat: they aren't good about allowing substitutions. Great bargain lunch menu with quick service.
DELICIOUS! – I just moved to Austin, and I *LOVE* this place! I get the chicken fried rice and I think it's wonderful. If I don't have time to stay and eat I drop in for to-go, and the manager is always SUPER nice! The atmosphere is very relaxing and the waitress is always very kind and attentive. I'd definately recommend it to everyone!
And it's next door to the Alamo Drafthouse, which has great fried pickles! =o)
food we enjoy anytime – My boyfriend and I have been going here for almost a year now and enjoy it so much. We were going about 2 or 3 times a week but then work got in the way of that. I love there food. Calm and relaxing place to eat. The either manager or Owner who ever he is blue shirt and white apron is so nice and he remembers everyone. I love there combantion lo main. Soups are so great too. So cheap expesally for the amount you get. I eat on my for about 2 days afterwards.
Best chinese resaurant:) – This has to be the best chinese food restaurant i've been to, I go here at least once a week, and the people there are extremely nice, and respectful. the food is amazing, and the atmosphere is great. If you are looking for a place to get chinese I would highly suggest China Cafe.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! – Fave Chinese place in Austin!! From one PICKY eater to another-this is the best. Kay (the mgr) is always friendly and personable. Have to admit-fried rice isn't their best entree, but everything else is. Lo Mein, Chow Mein, crispy eggrolls, spicy H/S soup, Wonton Soup, Potstickers...the list goes on & on. Everything is great & the food can be modified to your taste.They even made a custom order for me once. That is service! That is food! That is China Cafe!
excellen spicy food - great price – The title says it all. This is some excellent chinese food and the price is fair especially for lunch. I prefer this restaraunt over almost all chinese restaraunts around Austin including some of the more high end ones. They have all of the food 'health' info on their website as well.
less ambiance more substance – Good place if your tired of the expensive fu fu places. Nice clean place with a pleasant atmosphere. The food might not compare with some of the expensive places in town, but it is still very good for the price. If you're looking for a good chinese place to eat at and want to leave the shirt and tie at home, this is it. Try the sesame chicken. You won't be disappointed.
go at your own risk – This is absolutely the most horrible Chinese food I have ever eaten. The Egg Drop soup tasted like it had chalk in it. The Egg Rolls were burnt. The fried rice tasted like smoke. The vegetables and meat in my Tri-Delicacy with Garlic Sauce tasted as if they belonged in a trash can. My husband ordered the Sesame Chicken and said that it was nothing but fat (although they claimed it was just the breading they used).
The worst part was that when we brought up our dissatisfaction to the management, they insisted that we pay full price for a meal we could not even stand to eat.
