Their prices are very high compared to other chinese restaurants It was very loud in there and it was not a busy time of day Many of the food items on the buffet were cold and/or old looking. Food was nothing special, I don't recommend it

Food was pretty good. Good selection of items. A little dark for my taste. Located in old shopping center on Volunteer Pkwy across raid from Lowe's. Reasonably priced.

I went there for the first time and it was the worst Chinese buffet I have ever been to. 7:00 on a Monday night the food was stale, it felt dirty, and the food was just not good. Didn't even make it home before I had to hit the bathroom. Had a great variety, bit nothing was good. Will not... More

If I could give NO stars, I would. AVOID AT ALL COST!! My family and I went about 9 months ago. We all got sick. Decided that since it was "new ownership" we'd try again, BAD DECISION. The food was old and hard. Seafood was slimy and appeared to be left over from last week. Drinks were flat. We paid... More

My wife and I travel a lot and seek out Chinese buffets. We've tried them from eastern Canada to south Florida. Don't let the outside fool you, this is a good place. We found it to be clean, the buffet was well stocked, the food was hot and tasty. The staff was friendly, the price reasonable. We would not hesitate... More

The past several times we have been to Min Dynasty, the food has been quite good. I especially like the black pepper chicken. Sometimes, they make it too hot with jalapenos, but today, it was perfect. Their chicken on a stick is always good.

Yuck...Dirty. Floors are greasy and unsafe. There should be rugs between the buffet counters. Be extra careful if wearing tennis shoes. Be extremely careful if you are a senior citizen or unstable on your feet. It is slick. I walk with a cane, and my cane slid out from under me. My husband had to get my food because we... More

The buffet used to be the best in Bristol. This was my first visit since a couple of bad experiences last year. It is no better. The buffet was poorly maintained and many dishes were not labeled. They have discontinued my favorite, Mongolian Pork, and also the spring rolls. You get the impression that there has been a change of... More

We were hungry, we went into Min Dynasty, we ate, we paid, we left. One hour later we were hungry again. Everything was okay, but nothing outstanding.

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 the volume that's needed. And,... More
