Delicious brunch, every dish we had was amazing and the food came out so quickly! We’ve been here for brunch and dinner and both are very different experiences but equally delicious! We’ll be back for Dim Sum next weekend! Thank you Wu Chow!

Great atomosphere- doesn't fell like your old school Chinese restaurant, it is hip, open and airy with fun tiki drinks. The food is delicious and I especially love it because almost all of it is Gluten Free and I usually can never find GF Chinese food. My non-GF guests, loved it just as well (it didn't deter from the taste). The only downside was we had a reservation and weren't sat until 20min later. Then it took our waitress another 10 minutes to even acknowledge us at our table. The food came out quickly though.

This was a farewell dinner for a friend leaving Austin. I had heard good things about Wu Chow, but it truly exceeded our highest expectations. Wonderful, attentive service. All the food was superb. We will be back.

This was our third time here (one dim sum and 2 dinner nights) we ordered two of the sesame beefs, a fried rice, and one twice cooked pork belly. We received the beef and rice about 10 minutes after ordering. The pork belly wasn’t brought out so I asked if they had it just to make sure they didn’t miss the order. She said “yeah we like to bring everything out periodically so you guys can start with the beef” we continued eating and about 35 minutes later we were done and the waitress comes back and says “should we cancel the pork belly?” It upset me that it took 35 minutes for them to want to bring out the pork. I asked if we could have it about 10 minutes into eating the beef and she said she would get back to me and she never did.. Plus their steamer is down so we couldn’t do any dumplings or potstickers...

I am worried the glitz and glamour of Wu Chow is fading. I've always considered it the best Chinese food in Austin but am reconsidering my opinion after brunch on Mother's Day. Our server barely visited our table, the food took forever to come out despite the numerous empty tables and the overall ambiance was blah. The soup dumplings are always delicious but their light is dimmed when everything around them is just okay.

Our favorite brunch/dim sum place in Austin. We only go for sunday brunch dim sum so I can't speak for other offerings, but their dim sum is quite traditional with some creative deviations. Also, their chrysanthemum mimosas are amazing!!

Best Chinese food in Austin that we've had yet! Straight ahead food but done very, very well. Fresh ingredients and great cooking is always a winning combination. Fairly large menu that we both want to explore with some return visits. The atmosphere was a bit young and hip for us but the food was well worth it. We also ordered an excellent cocktail and the service was at tentative and speedy.

This was my second time here in a week lol.... the only complaint was that the bugs were pretty bad outside. One landed in our food so we couldn’t eat it anymore. One also landed in our water. Not the restaurants fault but still upsetting. Food and service was otherwise amazing though.

The only “issues” I had are that it was VERY loud inside, also, I could’ve misread the website but I didn’t notice Sunday's were only Dim Sum. So didn’t get to try the main entrees. But the food was great anyways! Going back to try the dinner menu.
