All of the food we ordered was delicious. Our waiter was attentive but gave us space to enjoy our meal without being a bother. The food was spaced out well all due to our attentive waiter. Even though this isn’t your typical Chinese restaurant in looks, decor and choice of music, Wu Chow delivers authentic and delicious Chinese food.

The downtown restaurant has good ambiance and food. The food tasted great, however the family style portion was very small. (Ex.Their family style fried rice was served in an individual size bowl). Our hostess and waiter were very attentive, however, Morgan (she helped with our reservation), was a little bit rude on the phone. We have added an extra guest to our party and requested a change in the reservation schedule. I requested clarification when she mentioned “high top” for our table. She snickered and gave the impression that I was “dumb”for not knowing what that meant. Good for special occasions.

Amazing food and wait staff, loved being able to order a few things and share. Good portion-sizes (not too big, not too small). Two of us ordered two entrees and a small plate and had a little bit of food left at the end.
Was nice and quiet at first with great ambiance, but got progressively louder during the night as tables filled up. Seems a popular spot for group celebrations - two or three "Happy Birthdays" were sung during our time there, with boisterous conversations happening all around. Felt like the music volume increased with the volume of the crowd.
Overall, lovely place for a meal -- go earlier if you like quieter settings, go later if you like more energetic ones.

We went for the Sunday Dim Sum brunch and it was not disappointing. The food was incredible and affordable. The service was good but our server had charged us for a drink we didn’t order. They did correct it immediately though. Overall it was a great experience. The pork dumplings are to die for! We are looking forward to going back to try their regular menu items.

We went for dim sum and had about 10 dishes and all were excellent. I lived in China for many years and studied Chinese cooking and cuisine and even though Wu Chow doesn't have the dim sum traditional carts and traditional menu - the food was excellent. The dining room is a bit loud for my taste but most restauranteurs in Austin seem to feel like it has to be loud to be good.

Wu Chow is one of my favorite restaurants, hands down. The food is spectacular. Of course the Soup Dumplings, I dream about them, they are so good. Their Egg Cream Buns - heavenly. Their staff are just amazing - helpful, attentive without being overbearing, even during brunch which I know is an extremely busy service - we never feel rushed. My college girl friends were in town for a little mini-reunion. I wanted to take them to Wu Chow and was not disappointed. Love love love.

We have always had the best experience at Wu Chow and have taken out of town friends multiple times. This time though, our service was a little lacking. Our waiter totally ghosted us after our food came out. He never asked how everything was, he completely forgot to bring my husband a drink he ordered and then didn’t even apologize when we asked again for his drink.
That being said, Wu Chow is one of our favorite restaurants and we won’t let one bad experience keep us from coming back.

Dim Sum at Wu Chow is our favorite Sunday treat in Austin. The food is amazing and you can't beat the $3 mimosas! I particularly love the soup dumplings, but I think we have probably tried everything on the menu after a few visits and it's all great. Go with friends and order everything!

Our 15th anniversary dinner which we told them about during our reservation 4 days prior. The front desk attendants were not warm nor welcoming. It was empty but we were put at a table we didn’t care for and requested another table. We moved and then the host said we should have requested a particular table if we wouldn’t have been happy where we were seated. Our wait person was decent but not helpful and tried to discourage us from bringing our leftovers home. When I checked the bill, I noticed we’d been slightly overcharged for one item. The wait person did correct it without apology. We left without a word of goodbye or thank you from anyone at the front desk. The food was good..not exceptional...and service was substandard for this price level restaurant. We will not return

Love WuChow for dinner. Went for brunch for the first time and experienced totally different level of food and service. Let me preface saying I require gluten free due to celiac and understand a dim sum brunch menu has limitations. Ordered both shrimp options due to no other protein options other than tofu as well as the broccoli and sausage rice. Both shrimp options were rubbery & greasy with little flavor. Broccoli and rice were just ok. Mimosa was great. Sat a full 15 minutes before even receiving water or seeing our waiter Taylor. Service by Taylor continued to be very slow despite end of brunch not being full. Expressed dissatisfaction to Taylor regarding quality of food. And pointed out we left 1/2 the food on four small dishes untouched. His repose was “so you want money off your bill?” No, Taylor, we just wanted a nice brunch and not have to leave WuChow just as hungry as we arrived. Manager gave me a $20 card toward future meal in the future. So disappointing.

Great tasting food. You must try the dry fried green beans if they’re in the menu. I don’t really like green beans as a rule but the flavour was fab. We then had the pecan glazed jumbo prawns which were amazing and the hoisin beef both of which were delicious

Great service but found the wine a little expensive.
