The food is alright. However the cleanliness of the place in general is not. Unfortunately, I have whitenessed multiple nasty sightings.

I ate lunch here on a recent Monday. The restaurant opens at 11, I arrived about 11:30. The buffet is large with a lot of options. Although it is a Chinese buffet, easily 60% of the food is standard American fare, ie: pizza, mac and cheese, etc. The Chinese food was bland. With only two seafood choices, fried squid and... More

We heard so much by the advertisment on TV and decided to go. I'll get to the point. The food was awlful and old. The imitation crab was chalky consistency, and I had to spit it out.

Clean. Great variety of Chinese and American options of food available. Fast seating. Reasonable cost per person considering all of the choices. Good service. Nice staff. Can get pricey with more than two people. We drive the hour and eat there as a family treat.

We were there yesterday - food was greasy, and just generally nasty - never will be going there again - - it was also overpriced-- 15.00 a person - 30 for the two of us and we hardly ate anything at all because what was offered was basically not appetizing and not eatable.

East Dynasty is alittle pricey, but it has more variety of foods than most buffets. The food is tasty. They have sushi. It is in a very desireable area. Very convenient.
