Best chinese restaurant

The best chinese restaurant I have ever visited in DC, Virginia and Maryland area. I will highly recommend that people should definitely pay a visit at least once in a life time. Best dishes: I cannot find any dish that I would not recommend off the top of my head.

I don't think I have ever had a bad meal here. It is the only place I eat Chinese while in town. I've been going to the House of Dynasty since 2006, and also had some business luncheons there. If you have a party of people, highly recommend reservations to reserve a table -- this place gets busy fast.

I've been visiting House of Dynasty for 30+ years and have always loved it. The food is delicious, the staff is friendly and attentive, and the cocktails are original and well made. The decor is dated, but I find it charming nonetheless. I highly recommend this restaurant.

There is such diverse menue. Terrific soft shell crab in plum sauce. Always more food than one person can eat. This is a little difficult to find if you do not know the Telegraph Road locale. Prices very reasonabe. Ask any Northern VA resident and I bet they go ofter.

Very nice place for dinner, have had lunch here as well but the dinner menu is much better.

The food was good... More

House of Dynasty is a wonderful traditional Chinese restaurant in outer Alexandria located in an unassuming shopping center. But, from the moment you enter the place you know you have stepped into a spectacular eating experience from the food which is outstanding to the service that is impecable. And the atmosphere is ellegant to match. All around, there is nothing... More

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.
