Very good . . .

My first visit to this local restaurant but it won't be my last. Food was very good, service was friendly and quick and it was an all-around enjoyable lunch. I had the garlic chicken which was just the right spiciness for me and even had enough left over for lunch the next day.

My wife talked me in to eating here once because she and another friend have been going for years. I was blown away!! The quality of the food, the quantity of food, the service were all excellent. The prices are very reasonable. I've enjoyed the wonton soup, the dumplings, the Tso's Chicken (my favorite) and they even managed to make... More

We have never had better service than recently at Qin. We wanted to be closer to the piano, so they moved us immediately and without complaint. Franklin, our server was supremely attentive, and not at all intrusive. Soup came out instantly. Why should soup or a dinner salad ever take more than a minute? At Qin, it doesn't. Sharing?

This is one of my favorite Oriental (Chinese) food restaurants. It's consistently good with everything you can order.

I can eat Chinese food for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Qin Dynasty is one of my favs in Houston that I visit often. Great atmosphere, great food, attentive service.

The server was not the nicest. Food came out looking great. Needs more taste. Prices are good. I will try it again.

We visited Qin Dynasty at the recommendation of family. The restaurant itself is pretty. However the food quality was average at best. More unfortunate was the service. We ordered and ate within about 35 minutes. It was time for the check and we waited for... 35 minutes. Half of the time spent at the restaurant was time spent waiting for... More

When you get to Qin Dynasty and the front desk staff greet you be sure and ask to be seated in the section where the server by the name of Carlos is working. You will not be disappointed. Qin Dynasty as one trip advisor reviewer said "bizarre parking" is true but do not let that discourage you. The restaurant is... More

Qin Dynasty is a local treasure that never disappoints. I have frequented it many times under varied circumstances: solo, couples and small group settings, depending on the occasion(s). The atmosphere is comfortable yet elegant and the food, which is always excellent, is served by an outstanding, attentive service staff. Anyone I have entertained there has enjoyed their dining experience. Try... More
