VERY rude service. Our table had standing water on the floor (under the glass ceiling part on a rainy day) and requested to be moved, but was not. We arrived at 3:15 and received the lunch pricing, but we were not allowed to get food after 3:30. The waitress essentially begged for a tip, and we left a sub-10% tip... More

I go there for the seafood, but they advertise crab legs. you have to wait 20 to 30 minutes for them to come out of the kitchen. or you have to ask them to bring crab legs out and then you still have to wait. if you don't want to bring crab legs out don't advertise them. I remember once... More

We dine here frequently! You can get a really good deal during their lunch hours. Food is always in abundance and cooked that day. You can see them cooking it in the kitchen. Large variety, even for picky eaters. They even have to go boxes for take-out!

In search of the best chinese food in the Tri-Cities, we tried Min Dynasty. The food was good, but nothing spectacular. I would say it was an average Chinese buffet. The service was very good. We do not plan on going back.

The biggest issue with this establishment is not the food. It is the absolute inability of the male OWNER/ cashier to smile. Not sure what the problem is but he has been that way for years. He's not rude or anything just seems distant or disinterested.

Whether or not you'll dig on Min's munchables depends on how Americanized you like your Chinese food. Min's food is very Americanized, but what they do, they do reasonably well. When you add in the hibachi grill, you have a comfort food joint worth returning to. For a smallish town, they have a decent selection of dishes. My girlfriend appreciates... More
