Tasty Dim Sum, but no English

We were curious about this establishment because it's always full. We didn't realize they served dim sum "a la cart," but decided to try it out. The only person who spoke English was the greeter. She explained that servers walk about the restaurant with food items. When they come to your table... read more

Qin Dynasty catered more to an Asian, specifically Chinese, crowd. They have good and diverse dim sums, and pushcart by waitresses on weekends. The prices for lunch is most reasonable but I have yet find their food outstanding. Too much MSG, too much salt, and of course, the management is not as friendly, nor helpful as other Chinese restaurants.

We were very disappointed with food. Maybe because it was take out. The dim sum was very poor and the beef with Chinese broccoli was not tasty. The chicken Lo-mein was ok. Vegetable rolls were too hot. Not a happy camper.

I have been going here for years and enjoy the variety of dumplings, chinese greens, and fun noodle. My vegetarian friends always find something to swoon over. The owners are friendly and recognize repeat customers. Dim sum (70 items) can be ordered every day and is served from rolling carts on weekends. Although gastro-adventuous, I haven't summoned the nerve to... More

This place has the most authentic Dim Sum (weekend brunch) we have found in the area. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. Service is pretty good, if a bit rushed, mainly due to the fact that it is almost always crowded during brunch.

Our friends brought us there for lunch, saying it's one of the best Chinese restaurants in the Neighbourhood. Not many people on weekdays, but heard it's packed on weekends. Food is yummy, authentic Chinese. Service is friendly.

Excellent food and service, I dined there early in the evening prior to the rush and had two servers waiting on my table. There was not a single need that was not anticipated by the staff and brought to me prior to my asking. The food was fantastic cooked fresh and authentic. I suggest any soup and dish as I... More

This is a decent Chinese restaurant in the Parsippany, NJ area. They serve DIM SUM on weekend mornings and if you are lucky the table wait won't be too long. You can also order from their extensive Chinese menu. The walls have many "specials" written in Chinese characters -- so I would say their menu items cater to the large... More

Aside from delicious dim sum on carts during weekend, service is very fast. They seems to have more dim sum variety than Noodle Chu (closed). Only the tripe was poorly prepared which was too hard and rubbery. The ta-ho (tofu) for dessert is a must but sells out fast. Parking is convenient. When in groups of say 5 or more,... More

Went around 1:00 PM, mistake, took 30 minutes to get seated. Dim Sum as good as anywhere! Very friendly staff, they understood some colloquially difficult American expressions such as "What's this?" and "Do you have any hot oil?" or "Water please?" Good experience!
