“Best Asian Food (and service!) ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

What a great experience. An innocent looking place in an out of the way strip mall. Inside, it was well designed and spread out so you able to relax. The hostess and waiter were funny and personable - they went out of their way to welcome us. The food was fantastic. Highly recommended. Excellent value as well - My buddy and I were hungry and ate everything - plus drinks. With tip we did not get to $80 bucks. And we ate a lot...

“I Guess It Is Good American Chinese Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Don't need to go into any length. The food is fine, tasty. It seemed to us to be Americanized Chinese Food. (To satisfy the palate of a non-Chinese American). Nothing wrong with that; we just prefer something more authentic. The restaurant did have a few items you won't find at a typical carryout, which is also a plus.

“We just love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

The food and service are both excellent. It's unfortunate that little competition exists in this area for Chinese food but this place does have great food at a good fair price.

“Wonderful Chinese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

7/20/2013: Went there due to the reviews on the internet. House of Dynasty was fabulous: the food, the service all outstanding. I had the Shrimp with Lobster sauce w/ brown rice and Hot and Sour soup; while the Others in my party had the chicken with cashew and Hunan Pork and egg drop soup; all was great. They did serve a lemon shorbet in between the meals as stated. All was superb. A couple things I would change: offering of sides with the meals: if I want pork fried rice, then I should be able to upgrade the rice option, for a fee. The only options were steamed rice (white or brown) and fried rice (fee of $1.50); not pork fried, not shrimp fried..just fried rice. I would have been glad to have paid a premium price for a different fried rice or a lomain noodle option. Also, when packaging up a person's food to take home, I do like it to be boxed in front of me...not taken to the back. Overall experience A++; I would definintely go here again.
