Great real Chinese food

We went there as friends recommended. We were so impressed by the ""Spicy-oil-meat-dumpling"". It was so delicious that my daughter ate a whole bowl rice by mixing the remaining sauce only. It is the best ""Spicy-oil-meat-dumpling"" in USA! We also like the readitional Chinese breakfast items - oil-stick, Chinese biscuits and soy milk, they were even tasted better than we ate in China!

A Lakeway Gem

Pao's Mandarin House has been a regular stop for me since the restaurant relocated to Lakeway from downtown Austin back in the 90s. In all my years of dining in-house as well as ordering meals to-go, I've never received a lackluster plate or anything vaguely resembling poor service. During all those countless visits, I've always been served precisely what I've ordered; that's an impressive, error-free track record. ... view more

Good food, bad service

This review describes an incident that happened to me and my family last week. I ordered takeout from Pao's as I often do but this time I had a special request for my wife who is eight months pregnant with twins and currently has a very particular appetite. I had ordered chicken and broccoli with brown sauce as opposed to white sauce, normally a common request. \r \r When I arrived home, I removed my order from ... view more

Great Restaurant

We have been eating at Pao's a number of years and have never received bad food or service. The food has always been very good and more than abundant. The owners and staff have always gone out of their way to be friendly and make your meal special. Everything on the menu is great so try somthing different each time you go.

Not really dim sum

The dim sum menu here is pretty limited. There are only a few small dishes and they aren't the ones you usually have during dim sum. I grew up in New York and I'm use to the screaming ladies with the carts going by. The service here is really friendly and the restaurant is filled with both Asian and Caucasian families. I think I'll go back for dinner sometime.

One of the best Chinese restaurants in Austin vincinity

Coming from Taiwan 23 years ago, I am always looking for the most authentic Chinese food wherever I live or travel to. After living in Austin for 4 1/2 years, I have to say Pao's Manderin House satisfies me the most among all the Chinese restaurants that we have tried so far in the Austin vincinity. They provide pretty good selection of dishes that meet the different taste/perference that Caucasian and Chinese peop... view more

Good egg rolls

After moving to from Chicago where we had a great chinese place on every corner, we quickly found it was slim pickins in Austin (so far). This place gets it right.

The Best Chinese Restaurant in Town inTaste, Quality, and Service

Pao's is the best overall Chinese restaurant in town. Two of my Chinese friends, one from Hong Kong and the other from Taiwan, recommended me to go there. I have been going to this restaurant for over decades since I moved to Austin. They are a family-run restaurant that is very friendly to the repetitious customers (unlike Din-Ho). The owners are always there to control quality in service and food. My recommend... view more
