Editorial review from GrubHub 1/13/2014

OK, this is my first review for grubhub. I usually don't complain much but in this case, I am going to.\r \r First of all, the restaurant is in the hotel building that I am staying at. I did not know this and when I ordered, I specified delivery and tipped 20%. The manager called me to confirm that I ordered and then proceeded to tell me that I had to come and pickup the food!! Oh yea, they didn't refund the tip.\r \r Now on to the food. They did NOT get the order correct. Spring rolls came with no sauces. Wrong soup, wonton instead of hot and sour. The dish was supposed to be spicy but it was like eating paper. NO FLAVOR WHATSOEVER!!\r \r At least they got my drink order correct - three ginger ales. more

I ordered the ten ingredients won ton soup and it was pretty good as well as the chicken pad thai. They arrived promptly even though I mistakenly put my order for pickup. When I called to say I wanted delivery it was no problem and the staff was polite and friendly. Definitely will be ordering from them again, like today! more

A unique reception 12/24/2008

I went to South Dynasty restaurant during a reception to a fun wedding. The cuisine is a variety of Chinese cuisines from the Yangzhi River to the Great Wall, from Hong Kong to Szechuan. They have friendly staff that cater to your every need. I would recommend them for anyone who wants a different experience in their lives. more

Different Style 9/28/2008

I am not a foodie and am one of those people who always play it ""safe"" when I eat out by ordering the same thing. Pros: staff,style,rooms more

Great atmosphere and food 8/4/2008

I held my wedding reception here recently and came away quite impressed with the experience. We initially chose S. Dynasty because of its sleek modern decor, clean and calm setting unlike Chinatown, and tasty food from a prior visit. Pros: clean, sleek, ambience, food Cons: poor coordination with hotel about rooms/parking more

Friendly waitstaff, excellent food. I took my girlfriend for dinner and proposed to her the same night. I will always remember that particular evening and would do it all over again and choose the sa 8/3/2008

Friendly waitstaff, excellent food, prices are ok. I took my girlfriend there for dinner when I proposed to her and I could not have chosen a better place. I would do it all over again. more

Good food, semi-friendly staff, a bit pricey 5/11/2008

We made last minute reservations for a table of 9 during Restaurant Week. Staff was accomodating allowing us to be seated before the entire party arrived. The options on the pre fixe menu were broad, but I must say the food was up to par with what you would find at any standard Chinese restaurant, and probably for less $ (even w the pre fixe). We ordered 4 bottles of wine throughout the night. The staff was less than enthusiastic about serving us, and definitely took their time with attending to our table. At one point the waiter spilled a glass of water across the table, and proceeded to soak it up without the mention of an apology. Crossing this off of my list of places to return to. more

Excellent dim sum, comparable or better than Chinatown! 3/23/2008

My boyfriend and I really wanted to eat dim sum, but live about an hour away from Chinatown, so we decided to take a chance on this restaurant, which was only 20 minutes away. The place was deserted, probably because it's hidden on the 2nd floor of the Raddison hotel. Anyway, we ordered the West Lake Beef Chowder, Szechuan dumplings in hot oil, stuffed eggplant dim sum, shu mai, and the steamed juicy buns. We're kind of Chinese food snobs (ie. we think PF Chang is ""fake""), but every single dish was excellent. The Szechuan dumplings had such a unique flavor that we were dipping the shu mai in the sauce. Pros: Beautiful and clean restaurant, tasty food, fantastic alternative to Chinatown Cons: Pricier than Chinatown, dim sum choices limited more

Best Peking Duck In Manhattan! 11/26/2006

Dynasty is bar none the best Peking Duck house in New York City. I started going to Dynasty because it offered a pleasant, quiet atmosphere for business lunches, but it has become a family favorite as well. The Szechuan dumplings in hot oil are authentic (and cannot be found too many other places in the city), as are the garlic green beans. There are few, if any, dishes that disappoint. Zelda's review noted an increase in prices for take-out; bear in mind that those prices were well below the dine in prices and were due for an adjustment! Pros: Authentic cuisine more

Wonderful upscale Chinese food 11/24/2006

We came here for lunch, without a reservation. The restaurant wasn't very busy, no doubt due in in part to its second floor location. I was impressed right from the start. The tablecloths were starched, the grand piano was polished to a shine, and the service -- just perfect. The food was also declicious. My favorite was the beef with mushrooms and bamboo shoots. The most impressive aspect of the meal was that the lunch entrees were around $8. That would not be so cheap for regular Chinese food, but this is a truly upscale place, and it could easily get away with charging $18-$20 for entrees. This place is definitely on my list as a great weekday lunch spot. more

THE BEST! Period 5/10/2006

A friend of mine who has lived in the neighborhood for over 8 years swore to me that this place was THE BEST chinese in the city and told me to give it a try if I doubted her opinion. Well, after being a doubter, I am now convinced that S. Dynasty might actually be the best, at least in the neighborhood. The food was hot and delicious. The menu had a ton of variety, but the most impressive part was the affable and friendly service. I would definitely recommend this place! more


Our company used to order lunch special from them all the time. We recently discovered that the lunch special went up from $5-$6 to $8-$10!!!! Ridiculous! On top of that they messed up our last food order, and it didn't even taste good! There are PLENTY of other chinese places in the area that are so much better and don't charge so much money for lunch specials that taste like crap. Needless to say our group will never order from them again! more

Great for Chinese Banquet Style dinners 11/15/2005

This is a great place to go for Chinese Banquet-- much more upscale than chinatown, cleaner (how can it NOT be?), better service (ditto), with the quality of food expected in a real authentic chinatown restaurant. Call ahead of time b/c they're sometimes booked for big big wedding banquets, thus closing down the restaurant. PS-- get the Peking duck! Pros: Clean, good service, reasonable more
