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

The Monterey area has nothing to offer in the way of dim sum except this restaurant, Dynasty Restaurant in Pacific Grove. Every 6 months to a year I have and irresistible craving for dim sum and trek to Dynasty. Every 6 months to a year I terribly disappointed. On my most recent visit I found they've deleted most of their... 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

One of very few remaining Chinese establishments still serving ABCD Family-style dinners. The portions are huge, very hot and tasty. Expect lots of leftovers, here. The price is right and the decor is considered vintage chop suey house, Imperial style. The lobby has an old Emperor's chair from the 1800s.

For the ambiance alone...this place is worth it! It's your typical American Chinese restaurant....all good! The food is tasty and the potstickers are YUMMMM! The vegetable fried rice was also yum! The staff is awesome! And sometimes at the front counter they have rings and knick knacks for super cheap!

We're locals and we regularly get take out from Dynasty. It's fine. The cost borders on the expensive side but that's typical of anything here on the peninsula. Like many Chinese restaurants, this is not actual Chinese cuisine but rather an American version of what westerners think Chinese food is. It's pretty gooey and kind of bland. Ivy you're looking...

This is the only restaurant pretending to serve dim sum in this entire area. Every once in awhile I revisit it in the hope that they will have improved enough to at least be palatable. Unfortunately, they seem to be getting worse. I ordered "onion cakes", "Leek Dumplings", and "Shaw mai". The onion cakes, which should be little circles of... More
