You may not know it, but everything about the architecture and décor of Ding How was put in place by a Chinese architect for the purpose of good luck, good fortune, and good wealth. The little details that surround, will give you a glimpse into traditional Chinese architecture. In Chinese tradition, red symbolizes good luck, while green symbolizes health and prosperity. We designed our building exterior, including the brick walls, red stilts, and our green roof top with all this in mind!

As you enter the building, you're welcomed by a grand fountain that was put in place based on the ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui, in an effort to evoke good fortune. Walk up the hallway to the foyer and you'll notice the hallway is lined with wooden kirins, a mystical Chinese creature that wards off evil spirits. Welcoming you into the foyer is a large jade elephant. Green jade is a symbol of good luck, wealth, and good fortune. Don’t forget to rub the elephant's head for good luck on your next visit!

We value our heritage and hope that our customers feel like part of the family when they come to dine with us. Thank you San Antonio for making Ding How part of your tradition and we hope to welcome families, old and new, for many more years to come!
