We had a very pleasant meal at Tham Dynasty. We booked fairly late in the day, and this was no problem. We had a selection of food for the five of us served of course on a lazy susan, and all of the dishes were excellent. The service was prompt, good, and unobtrusive. Certainly recommended.

There seems to a bit of rivalry amongst locals as to which town is host to the best Chinese restaurant in East Gippsland. As a new local I would love to vote #1 Paynesville, however for the sake of other readers of this review I will be somewhat truthful and say that 'sadly Paynesville’s' own 'Tham Dynasty' is not that restaurant'.
There is really nothing in particular to complain about, it’s just that the food has no real 'wow factor'. The restaurants' location is set back off the water so much so that you cannot appreciate any view other than that of passing traffic. Their menu typifies that of a suburban Melbourne take away, which is disappointing if you are looking for an authentic experience. That being said the food and service are more than reasonable for their prices, and the option to B.Y.O is a big plus. Tham Dynasty provides the type of dining experience where you wouldn’t rush back for but would happily join friends if invited. For me though... I am still looking for something more.

Small, quite pricey and food just so-so.
Worth a visit but not so sure about a second. Unusual opening hours, very limited take-away.

Tham Dynasty is a family owned restaurant which looks over the Gippsland Lakes in Paynesville. The food is always fresh and consistently very good. Local young people are are trained to provide very good service, owners Teresa and Geoffrey Tham oversee food preparation and front of house with excellent support from Ginny and chef Adam. Tham Dynasty is only closed Monday nights except in school holidays when it is open 7 days a week. Water is not provided on request but can be purchased or you are welcome to BYO , as with your alcoholic drinks.
Worth visiting whilst staying in Paynesville.

We chose to eat here after checking other reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. The staff were lovely and the food was of a very good quality. It was BYO which is great to keep the price down when eating out. This food did not bloat me or give me a headache as some Chinese can, which is big plus for me! Would certainly eat here again and look forward to it!
