Overall

Very rude service. I called in to order to go. A woman answered the phone. After her greeting, I tried to speak to her. Before I finished my second word, she abruptly hung up. This occurred four times, twice on landline and twice on mobile phone. On the fifth time, she claimed she couldn't hear me despite hanging up immediately after her greeting. As I was trying to find the dish from the menu to order, she pointed out that she had a line of customers waiting in front of her. She was blaming me - a phone customer - for keeping the customers waiting. If she hadn't hung up on me four times, I would have been so aggravated and would have placed the order quicker. Won't be patronizing them again.

Save your money!

Went there for dinner tonight and we were the only people in the entire restaurant. Our bill was exactly $42 for two people. We had 2 non-alcoholic beverages, 2 ""egg rolls,"" 2 cups of Wonton soup, pork fried rice and 2 entrees. I would expect that a Chinese restaurant would have dinner specials or combinations, but this restaurant does not. The egg rolls had no meat and were actually spring rolls--the only filling was cabbage and carrots. The wonton soup was luke warm and did not have bbq pork in it. The entrees were large, but the food was mediocre. I would have expected to pay no more than $15 per person for what we ordered, so I feel ripped off. The atmosphere was also terrible, though clean enough. Large restaurant with no one there and very slow incessant asian music lulling us to sleep. If I can keep just one couple from wasting their money and evening at this place, my time will have been well spent.

Yummy.

The food here is awesome, it tastes fresh and well made. The people who work here are also very friendly and helpful. This is by far my favorite Chinese restaurant in Austin. I'm glad I moved to an area near it and discovered it.

Great Food

I've eaten all over and they are very consistently good. The chef has been cooking great food for over 20 years here in Austin. You always get great portions and friendly service.

Very good food. I tried both the shrimp fried rice and the beef chow mein. Highly recommend. The delivery was very fast as well. Will eat her regularly.

Best Chinese Food in Austin!

I have been eating here for around 9 years, I've tried other restaurants because they were closer to me- but China Cafe always wins. They are the ONLY restaurant I have been to that makes hot and sour soup just how I like it. Everything I've had here tastes great! They seem to be a family owned restaurant, and mostly every staff member I talked to has been friendly.

Kinda tasty

The food here is consistantly good and the service has rarely been bad so I really do recommend that you try this place if you are in the neighborhood. There best thing I have ever eaten here was a spicy lamb dish that was a little pricey but was so full of peppers and flavor that I think it was worth it. The appetizers are decently priced and the atmosphere of this restaurant makes you feel pretty good, overall this place is great.

Best Chinese NW Austin and delivers

Without doubt one of the best Chinese restaurants in town, even those trendy downtown places and others which may be more often heard of. After over 20 years in Austin, still one of my favorites. Food is always fresh and cooked exactly like you want it. They deliver to certain areas close to the restaurant and delivery time is usually quicker than they say except Fridays. Still worth it.
