There are still many Chinese restaurants offering takeout and delivery food in Austin during this time, ready to serve up much-craved noodles, dumplings, and egg rolls. Eater put together this guide highlighting the best of the Chinese restaurants in Austin, from house-made noodle restaurant Xian to under-the-radar campus truck Chef Hong to South Austin restaurant Sichuan River, among others.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurant themselves.

For more general takeout options, scope out Eater Austin’s takeout and delivery package and the running guide, as well as the ongoing restaurants with pop-up markets list.

A number of Austin restaurants have resumed dine-in service. That level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the City of Austin website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
