“Delightful menu and there are gluten free options!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Just reading the menu is a delight at Dynasty. We were here several years ago, and although the reviews recently have been a little less favourable we were keen to visit again. We were not disappointed. To start with, we had the Tales of the Lobster, Golden Triangles, Papaya Salad and one other salad, followed by the Three Meat Harmony, Fragrant Crispy Duck, Phoenix and Dragon (lobster and duck) and - my choice - the exquisite Secret of the Ox. The maitre d' helpfully steered me away from dishes containing gluten, even sliding the poppadums politely but firmly to the other side of the table. (It helps of course to phone ahead if you have special diet requirements.) I have had some unfortunate experiences in Asian restaurants that confuse gluten with 'cereal' but the advice I was given at Dynasty was spot on. The food tastes fresh and is tastefully presented. The papaya salad was just the right balance of fresh and spicy. I have to put in an especially good word for the Ox, which was deliciously marinated and melted in my mouth, just short of very rare: a return visit might be in order to coax its secrets out of the chef. The service was at all times attentive and was neither too fast nor too slow. For a busy Saturday evening we were very impressed. Perhaps it helped that we booked for 6.30pm, slightly ahead of the crush.

“Fine reputation was not lived up to”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

The restaurant is often voted to be one of the very best Chinese restaurants in The Netherlands. Our expectations were accordingly high. Almost inevitably, we ended up disappointed and even outright dissatisfied and, yes, quareling with the manager. We had chosen a 66 EUR menu of 6 courses, and first got 3 dishes in 20 minutes, but were then kept waiting for an hour. We obviously had been forgotten! Meanwhile, the wine was finished, the warm water bowls for our fingers had grown cold. We felt abandoned and asked for the bill straight away. We were charged for the full price, which we found scandalous. The manager did not seem to care much about our bad experience. After protesting once more at the second bill, we finally got a third bill for the reduced price of 150 EUR (55 for the wine). The food we DID get was excellent, I must say, but the service was below every reasonable standard. We will definitely not come back here.

“Not cheap but good Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Very nice decorated restaurant which stretches over 2 floors.

The menu offers prefixed 3 course menus or you can choose by dish.
The menu has a manageable amount of dishes and does not have any vegetarian dish.

The food quality is good but the minimum you can expect for the price - main around 25€.

Service was attentive and good.

I would recommend it for the nice atmosphere.
