House of Dynasty is superb! A perfect Gem hidden in an average looking shopping center. The minute you walk in you discover something special. Ambiance that is so sophisticated and upscale you know it doesn’t fit where it is. And the food only surpasses that. Dynasty offers some of the very best Asian food I’ve ever had – it’s simply...

I was visiting a relative in this neighborhood, and we had lunch at this restaurant. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. It's located in a shopping center and, unless you are familiar with the area, you wouldn't notice it. I would definitely go back if and when I'm in that area.

This is the old fashioned Chinese food, served impeccably, with pleasant ambiance and value for money. On a cool night we were served hot tea as soon as we sat down, a nice touch. When we ordered cocktails we were allowed to enjoy them before our appetizers came- no sense of being rushed at all. Food was delicious, well seasoned,... More

One of the best restaurants in the area. Some feel it is pricey but the pricing is quite appropriate to the quality of food and service. Don't miss a wonderful experience.

House of D has been around forever. The food is great American Chinese. They can handle small parties for special occasions too.

One of the few sitdown Chinese restaurants in the area. They offer take out and have a dedicated side enterance so as not to disturb the dining area. Food is the best Chinese for the price. Dining room is quiet and the service very attentive. If you have any dietary needs they will modify to accommodate.

We dine at least once a month at House of Dynasty, and have for 14 years. This restaurant is truly elegant, with an emphasis on excellent service. Most of the servers have worked here for years and they take time to get to know repeat visitors -- they know my favorite drink and they know what my kids like to... More

Although there are many reviews praising the food, I guess my taste is different. The atmosphere is nice, the service excellent. We had hot & sour soup and two other dishes that should have been spicy (based on the pepper next to their description on the menu). However, we found them pretty bland. The seafood itself was good. I appreciated... More

A nice place for working lunch or group dinner. Food was fresh and sauces were tasty, not bland. We enjoyed szechuan chicken, Hunan chicken, and for folks who don't like spicy, try chic and broccoli. Also had dumpling appetizer. Prepared fresh. Offers lunch specials with spring roll and soup. Food prices under $9 for most entrées at lunch.

There are lots of family owned "Chinese" restaurants with excellent food. The House of Dynasty is no exception. In this case what stands out is the option to have an intimate dinner for two or a large table for the large family. In both cases the service is excellent and the prices more than fair. This restaurant is warm and... More
