We loved our experience at this restaurant ! The portions were huge , each dish was so flavorful and the prices were so inexpensive . We were initially attracted to the ornateness of the entry way but The entire restaurant was really lovely . We dined with many Chinese nationals which is always a good sign that the food meets...

The Dynasty is on our list of go-to places each year when we stay in Pacific Grove. The food is good, and the portions are generous, and the service is attentive. I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the decor. Every inch is Chinese, including the ceiling, wallpaper, wall hangings, and the unique gold throne. It's worth a visit just... More

Share an entrée ! We really love their sizzling rice soup, love the atmosphere and we go with our toddler and have always felt welcome. They also do take out, we have always eaten there but it is good to know it is an option.

The restaurant smelled funny (like a dirty fish tank). The waiter couldn't understand basic English. We couldn't get chopsticks. To top it off, we were overcharged. No use arguing with a waiter who can't speak English.... I would give the place no stars if I could.

Very enjoyable dinner. Went there on a week nights, the place had a few tables, not too busy. I was happy to find out that they deliver because I live close by and have been looking for a local Chinese delivery spot. I am used to take-out Chinese food- coming from Brooklyn, NY where there is an abundance of local... More

I drove out of my way for the dim sum. I've eaten here before over the years and it's been pretty good. This last time was awful. I had leek dumplings, barbecue pork bun, onion cakes, and shanghai buns. The leek dumplings were tasty, but cold. The barbecue pork buns were palatable. Onion cakes are supposed to be crispy and...

I wondered into this restaurant by chance one night and I am very glad I did. This place is very well decorated and feels very new. There's lots of smaller booths along the walls and large tables for medium sized groups and large groups, each with a huge lazy suzann in the middle. The food always comes in large portions... More

This restaurant offers dim sum on the weekends during lunch hour. When we walked in the host was on his cellphone. After being seated we noticed a descent decor and ordered some tea. They asked if we wanted the "free" tea but we order some oolong which was good. The waiter brought a cart of different selections. We picked the... More

Ming Palace replaced the mediocre chinese restaurant that was previously at the same location. It is a neighborhood place, with quite interesting dining decor. I haven't had a bad dish here, food is fresh, fast, and traditional.
