Old Thousand (the name is Chinese slang for a cunning hustler or con) joins the ranks of trailblazers that are defining Austin's brand of rebellious Asian fare. The eclectic atmosphere blends familiar Chinese elements with updated details like contemporary gold chairs. Similarly, the menu remixes elements from a range of regional Chinese dishes – some restrained, others loud.
