“Authentic Chinese food”

This is the only authentic Chinese restaurant in Spfld. They have American palette pleasers mixed in, but also they have legitimate Chinese food as well. Comparing it to food in China, many of the dishes come very close.
The space started life as an Arby's, and the neighborhood has mostly fast food. The prices are where they should be.

In my search for truly authentic Chinese food, Springfield, IL has really left me baffled. You would think that a city of 100K+ with 20 or so Asian food restaurants would be able to provide non-sugary, authentic Chinese food. Until recently I had given up on Springfield's Asian cuisine. That is until I found the Dynasty restaurant on So Grand.

They have a great lunch special and their dinners are great. It is not the typical Chinese restaurant where sugar and sweetener is added to everything to suit the Americans palate. They have the sweet stuff if that is what you are after but I prefer the rich taste and flavor that comes from the spices and fresh ingredients. The food is also prepared right in plain site behind the counter.

I'm giving the 4 stars rather than 5 because of the friendliness of the servers and employees. A few more thank you's and a sense of customer appreciation would be nice. This is probably more of a cultural thing than it is a lack of caring about the customer.

If you want really good food and you don't mind seeing the owners children sitting at a table doing their homework or cleaning tables then this would be a good place to try. I personally would rather visit a family ran business than a nationwide franchise.
