Best Chinese food in the area!

I love this place, it's like a time capsule of great food! The wonton soup, moo shu pork, noodles, rice, are simply delicious! Not overly salted or MSG. I avoided Chinese food for years for fears of getting violently ill, but I have found my long lost love of quality Chinese food at this place... read more

The food was very bland with little to no taste. I only had a good taste because of the sweet and sour sauce. The beef meal as basically chicken. I also had duck and it was extememly greasy with a bland taste. Never again. Not for me. Waitress barely came to the table. I had to call on another waiter... More

House of Dynasty (or "HOD" as it is known by our family and friends) is deceptive... it sits in a small shopping center on the outskirts of Alexandria and Springfield VA. From the outside, it doesn't look like anything special, but don't let that full you. The service and food in this wonderful restaurant are both extraordinary! I lived in... More

We found out about this place a few years ago and make a visit with each trip to DC. This is the real thing. Sesame chicken with hot and sour soup is off the hook. Great Szechwan dishes too!! Something for everyone. You won't be disappointed!!

I have visited this restaurant several times and am always pleased with the food and service. The location is unassuming with plenty of parking. Once inside, you will be very surprised at the appointments and atmosphere. The menu is very complete and all of the preparations are spot on. Try the pan fried dumplings as they are terrific! The dumplings... More

The food here is fantastic. There are always plenty of waiters and staff around if you need anything. The people here are super nice. While the room is a bit dated, the food more than makes up for it. 2 thumbs way up!

Easy location to drive to with plenty of parking. Friendly welcoming staff. Lunch is a true bargain. Multiple choices with soup, rice & main dish for less than $10. Each dish is exceptional. Dinner is also a great event with a full choice menu. The atmosphere is elegant and quiet that allows for easy conversations. Tables for larger groups available.
