“My favorite restaurant of all time ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Love this place - grew up near here and a must every time I'm around. Lemon chicken , beef with broccoli and dan dan mien are the best Chinese you'll taste outside of New York.

“Good for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

Large restaurant with nice decor. Lunch about $10. The shrimp with Vegetables and Bean Curd with Vegetables were both good: broccoli crisp, brown sauce tasty. Shrimp were large and tender with good flavor. They serve brown rice. Food could have been hotter.

“Very good food and conspicuously excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

This restaurant is situated in a strip shopping center and has a very unassuming storefront. I was a bit skeptical when my friend and guide-for-the-day told us that a lunch stop there would yield a memorable meal, but it did. I had a spring roll appetizer and a bowl of minced chicken and corn soup to start things off. Both were delicious, though the soup was a tad too sweet for my taste. The cashew chicken, reasonably priced at $7.50, was very good.

We received conspicuously excellent service. This is one of those places where the uniformed wait staff doesn't disappear into the kitchen for lengthy periods, but instead stands to attention and constantly looks to diners’ needs so they can promptly attend to them. There was absolutely nothing to complain about.

House of Dynasty is a first-rate Chinese restaurant. I’d love to have one just like it near my house.

“Why the Rave?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

I don't understand why many of my friends rave about this restaurant. I think the food here is overrated. I am not saying it is bad but I can say I can get similar or better food at some of the take out I know. Ambience is nice and the service is quite good but as the few times I tried, I have I had better food elsewhere. But,, I know many seems to like this place. Confused.

“Great General Tso's Chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We love their General Tso's and the fried meat dumplings. We don't eat here as often as we have in the past when we lived in Kingstown but it is the best General Tso's we have had in the DC area.
