“I'm a regular customer of Dynasty”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

I work near Dynasty and eat here regularly once a week. Their lunch menu selections give far more food than I can eat, usually for less than $7. Their menu is simply huge, they offer a great many authentic Chinese dishes along with Thai, Japanese (fresh sushi), "Americanized" Chinese, and many vegetarian dishes. I am always treated well and served quickly, the food is always very fresh and hot. I have no problems recommending Dynasty to friends and family.

“Fine, imaginative Asian Cuisine in Springfield, IL”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

I am pleased to concur with the other reviews of Dynasty found here, though I would not necessarily agree that it is "authentic" Chinese cuisine. Some of its dishes are fairly close to authentic, but in fact many combine Thai and Chinese touches together. The Chow Fun, for instance, has basil leaves, not something one normally finds in Cantonese cooking. However, what really matters is that the kitchen here is very imaginative, the ingredients are all fresh and nothing tastes like it has been sitting around waiting to be reheated when you order it. Some of the dishes are quite unusual. For instance the pistacchio crusted tilapia (or sole - your choice); a fillet with a light crust subtly flavored with pistacchio - served with vegetables and a delicate fried rice. The hot and sour soup was both hot and sour - in just the right balance. And generous it its portion as well. This restaurant is way above the norm for Asian cuisine in smaller American cities and towns, and I recommend it very highly. Service was friendly and fairly efficient; the decor is standard diner-like, though some of the art is better than average.

“A Chinese Visitor Says "Very Good"”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

I agree with the reviewers who describe this as "authentic" Chinese food. Don't be fooled by appearances. The conversion from an Arby's with a self service counter for ordering, and an unimpressive décor, combined with an unexpectedly extensive menu and (to repeat myself) authentic menu. I recommend the Szechuan Sea Bass, the Beef and Noodle Soup, and if you aren't committed to the authentic Chinese - the Thai eggplant and tofu pad Thai were also very good.

The Chinese Visitor mentioned above? A high school exchange student who ordered to soup off the Chinese language menu, and pronounced it excellent.

“Authentic Chinese food”
Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

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.
