Good Food... and Friendly Service

Chi Dynasty at 12229 Ventura Blvd. in Studio City has good food and friendly, efficient service. The Egg Drop Soup and Hot and Sour Soup are wonderful and the Beijing Duck is terrific. They even do something called Vegetarian Beijing Duck which is surprisingly good. We'll be back.

Great place here! Service was wonderful. Great food, nothing too crazy and too Asian food here. It should be easy for American people to ease into Asian culture food. We had: -Hot and Sour Soup is awesome -Kung Pow Chicken -Mongolian beef -Dynasty Lo Mein Combination Would love to come back here again!

I had been eating at the original Chi Dynasty in East Hollywood for decades. The food and the service were always reliably good - occasionally great. I was delighted when they opened in Studio City, where I live This version is very much a "hit or miss" proposition, as I noted in a previous review. I tend to be pretty... More

This place opened a few years ago right next to Chin-Chin in Studio City and is way, way way better. The dumplings are better, the soup is better, and every dish I've tried is better than the equivalent at Chins. Sorry chin-chin but you've got to get your game back!

We decided to try chi dynasty and were not impressed. They have a nice location and very friendly staff unfortunately I'd rather be eating panda express compared to the food they served here. As much as I wanted to like this restaurant because of the friendly staff, I just wouldn't come back because of the unimpressive food.

I thought that was quite nice,... More

After hearing great things about the original Chi Dynasty in Los Feliz, I recently tried the new branch in Studio City - twice. Sorry to report that this is a somewhat overpriced yet very ordinary Chinese restaurant. The spare ribs were excellent. Everything else we ordered was just plain dull - not inedible, but certainly not worth paying the premium... More
