This Chinese restaurant is in an plain looking strip mall but don't let that keep you away ! Once you step through the doors you will be astounded by the beautiful Asian Interior . You would never imagine how beautiful this is from the unassuming front . The food is so good and so flavorful . The customers are almost... More

This restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. There will be No Return visit. Hot and Sour Soup ... was barely warm to the touch, Almost cold. The meals we ordered, we ate, because we were hungry, but the taste and quality were disappointing. Expected HOT FOOD, and got a plate delivered with food that was COLD to the taste.... More

vegetable chow mein had 1 piece of broccoli at the bottom & 3 very small sliced pieces of cabbage & we paid extra for more vegetables. Schechuan shrimp had 8 pieces of half cooked broccoli, 2 little pieces of carrots, 1 mushroom & very sweet sauce with some red pepper flakes. Not worth the money.

We have been coming to the Dynasty Restaurant for 10 years. It is our first stop when we arrive in Monterey from Sacramento. We are never disappointed with the food or excellent service. The food is always fresh and beautify presented. You are never feel rushed and the servers are super accommodating. They truly treat you like a guest.

They advertise free delivery. I live 3.1 miles from them and after I placed my order which took about 15 minutes because the guy on the phone didn't speak much English, they called me back 10 minutes later and said it would be $35.00 delivery fee because I live more than 3 miles away. The previous owners always delivered here.

If you're looking for the kind of Chinese food you find across the USA that has been 'prepared' for American tastes than you will be happy here. If you prefer authentic Chinese food which is readily available in Northern California around San Francisco and San Jose. The fried rice was above average but the hot and sour soup, szechuan chicken,... More

I've lived here for 16 years and had given up on finding an authentic Chinese restaurant in town. Until I ate here. My Asian friends who live near San Jose (where you can get some seriously great Chinese food) love Dynasty. The pot stickers are juicy on inside and nicely fried on the outside. The boiling beef is one of... More

Oh holy night, the crab won tons are like a meal unto themselves. SOO delicious, especially with the duck sauce!! I ate at Dynasty at least once a week back when I went to school here and for the following five years when I was stuck in Georgia, I would crave them. Honestly, the rest of the food is just...

I used to use this for takeout on a regular basis. It seemed better a few years ago. I tried again and it was okay though not as good as a few other options - e.g., Tommy's Wok. My wife seemed to like it better than I did. Not bad for a neighborhood option but not compelling
