The Shanghai Dynasty is a fixed price "all you can eat" yum cha restaurant. Yum cha means "drink tea" in Cantonese, you have a lot of small dishes. The food is really good. I liked the "phoenix feet" -- melt in your mouth chicken feet...More

Food was awful, Service was shocking Waste of money, time and energy. We actually kept the leftovers as evidence in case we got sick (you can imagine how bad it was)

Went there for lunch/dim-sum. Unsure what to expect but it was easy to find however, the inside of this restaurant is positively palatial. Food service was efficient, the food sumptions, the prices are moderate with the overall experience top notch!

This is the third time we've been and we've noticed the owner and the staff change. The service is terrible and the staff hardly speaks much English. If you are Asian and speaks mandarin then it's easy to communicate, otherwise expect a bit of a...More

We ordered stir fried chicken with steamed rice but instead we were served deep fried battered chicken without either sauce or vegetables, just a plate of battered deep fried chicken on its own, may as well have ordered Kentucky Fried Chicken!!! Wine selection was poor...More
