Excellent Chinese

I stumbled upon Qin Dynasty while looking for Chinese carry-out last night and noted someone on Yelp said it was the best Chinese in Houston. Skeptical but curious, I ordered Sesame Chicken, Miso Soup and Edamame. He ordered Mongolian Beef and Vegetable Soup. We can tell you for sure that this is... read more

This is a wonderful Asian resaturant complete with white tablecloths on every table. The service is fast and good and the prices are reasonable! The great thing about Qin Dynasty is that they have a very extensive menu that will please everyone! They even have sushi! I will definitely go back!

Love this place, dont have good chinese in my area so when going to Houston, if we get there early enough to find parking place, this is my place for lunch. Sesame chicken, fried rice, lobster rolls or spring rolls w/chocie of soup is more than you can eat but worth the trip!

Qin is a great spot- crowded at lunch for a good reason. The parking can be a bit nuts. The lunch specials are outstanding. The restaurant feels upscale and not rushed, though they are clearly turning tables quickly. Delicious food!

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.
