EH...it's a buffet 3.5 stars at best

Debated on rating between 3 and 4 stars...it used to be better but, recently, seems to have gone more downhill in quality and cleanliness. Haven't been there in a few months and the last visit was not good. Most buffets seem kind of less than clean and the food quality is somewhat lacking due to... read more

The food was very good and I would have enjoyed it a lot more if we weren't afraid of falling and breaking our necks. I thought at first that the floor must be still wet from mopping. No, that wasn't the problem. They were slick from something else. I have no idea what. My friend told one of the employees... More

We had the worst experience with this chinese restaurant! The food was horrible. The food had not been replaced for hours, the service was terrible, and it was extremely overpriced. I got sick before we even left the restaurant. The restroom was sooo nasty! We do not recommend this place at all. We will never go there ever again.

Not a fan of Chinese food, no offense, and allergic to any shellfish, so I am limited in this market, but if my family wants to go buffet this is my favorite by far. Used to have 2 things, I have no idea what they were called, but wish they still had them! One was a ball with like sesame... More

When we want chinese we usually go to the MIN. They have a great variety on there buffet and we always find it to be good. Usually get a plate off the Hibachi grill which is good as well.

Was skeptical to even go in because of the deserted appearance and old building but was recommended to go for the crab legs. Well, the crab legs were way over steamed and impossible to eat. However, most of the buffet items were good. The hibachi was pretty good too, but almost didn't even see it. It is kind of hidden.... More

Hello thank you for your feedback and for enjoying the food. I am an employee here and I would like address some of the concern. We actually do lots of deep cleaning here monthly , and we clean everything daily from sweeping to mopping flooring every night and cleaning the glasses. This is an older building around 8-9 years of... More

My work has allowed me to try restaurants all over North America. While not a ten the Dynasty is a strong seven. Food is always varied and the serving buffet is fully attended to. No complaints of any kind regarding service. Some reviewers who might be less traveled feel the staff is not friendly enough but it is a Chinese... More

If you are looking for all you can eat at acceptable quality it's an OK place to eat. I think the quality has declined recently.

I recommend not to eat here. I went grazing through their selection and came back with practically nothing. Over priced. The food looks like on vegas vacation with Chevy Chase.Do you want the green or the yellow stuff. Waitress tried to speak English but came out mangling! We call it the Ming die nasty!
