“Great dine in family run Chinese restaurant”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Very authentic Chinese food. The service is terrific. Food is served steaming hot. Lemon sorbet is served in between the appetizer and main course to "cleanse the palette." traditional hot tea is also served. After eating a fabulous meal, hot towelettes are given to clean and freshen up.

The menu has a great variety of items, and the staff are always willing to accommodate to any customizations to their menu items. Highly recommend.

“Quick take out order -will come back to dine in.”
Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

First time trying House of Dynasty and it was delicious! Portion sizes were outstanding and so generous that I couldn't finish my dinner. Take out process was quick and easy. Restaurant has a side entrance just for carry out and the staff was very friendly.
From I saw of the dine in area, it isn't your typical Chinese Restaurant. Beautiful place settings and the lighting is dimmed enough to make it more formal like. Will have to come back to dine in.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We were worried about the price of the food compared to what we have had before at other good places we like. The portions were more than enough and we absolutely loved it it. You get tea along with your drinks and a small sorbet to "cleans your palate". It really was delightful. And the food was to die for. We're used to crab ran goons with cream cheese, but we got the won-tons and were surprised to find them with mozzarella cheese. Different, but tasty! Must go!

“Consistently good food and service”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We stop in here after work for dinner every month or so. There is rarely a wait unless prime time weekend. The service is usually prompt and efficient. The food is always good with good portions. It is upscale enough to go for a semi-special occassion as well as just for a quick meal.

Definitely a good choice! Don't let the strip mall location put you off!

“Family Favorite”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Whenever we visit family in Northern Virginia we try to have dinner here. It is extremely popular with the locals so reservations are a good idea. We normally get 3 dishes for 4 people and still have leftovers. Attentive service and great food.
