I am a BIG fan of Chinese food and have had it in restaurants around the country. House of Dynasty, by far, is the best I've EVER had! General Tso's is my favorite, but the chicken with broccoli, egg drop soup, and lo mein are amazing as well! My only regret is that I don't live closer.

We have dined this place over the years and ALWAYS found the food to be wonderful. We sometimes do the take out and sometimes eat in. Tonight, as was the last time we did take out, the food was awful. The chicken was rubbery. The food was luke warm at best. The soup was OK, at best, but was cold.... More

House of Dynasty is a warm and cozy restaurant with friendly staff who have been there long enough to get to know the regulars and make you feel welcome. House of Dynasty has become one of those local go-to restaurants because you always know you'll get good food and good service. The only draw back, and this is very minor,... More

There are many highly acclaimed restaurants in the DC/VA metro area. The House of Dynasty is by far one of the best Chinese restaurants in my opinion. The food is great, the atmosphere is excellent, and the service is unsurpassed – a rare quality for many nice restaurants, Chinese or otherwise. I would have to agree with many of other... More

Visited with family on Sunday. After eating here I've lost faith in Tripadvisor's reviews. Who can say that this is the best Chinese restaurant in the DC area???? We all lived for 5 years in China and love Chinese cuisine in all its variations. This is not Authentic Chinese food, but some unfortunate mutation of it. Soups full of MSG... More

House of Dynasty is superb! A perfect Gem hidden in an average looking shopping center. The minute you walk in you discover something special. Ambiance that is so sophisticated and upscale you know it doesn’t fit where it is. And the food only surpasses that. Dynasty offers some of the very best Asian food I’ve ever had – it’s simply...

I was visiting a relative in this neighborhood, and we had lunch at this restaurant. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. It's located in a shopping center and, unless you are familiar with the area, you wouldn't notice it. I would definitely go back if and when I'm in that area.

This is the old fashioned Chinese food, served impeccably, with pleasant ambiance and value for money. On a cool night we were served hot tea as soon as we sat down, a nice touch. When we ordered cocktails we were allowed to enjoy them before our appetizers came- no sense of being rushed at all. Food was delicious, well seasoned,... More
