I love this place. Maybe after their bad reviews in 2009 (below), they cleaned up their act--the staff is very friendly and accommodating, the food is fabulous (try the crab puffs, OMG!), prices fairly reasonable. We took out of town

usually not a big fan of going out to eat chinese, but enjoyed eating at this restaurant. They had an amazing lychee sushi, prices were pretty cheap, and it has a nice ambience and decor. Food was fairly decent too, if not outstanding.

I took my girlfriend on a date, and we sat at the sushi bar. The staff was great, however as we were talking, a roach walked across my saki on the sushi bar. I talked to the manager and he said they have a pest problem and the exterminator comes every Tuesday, but roaches come out after, and he even went on to say "you can not get rid of all the roaches, I hope you come back."

I enjoy going to this restaurant. The food is delicious and served promptly. The decor is stupendous. The staff remembers my name, even after months at a time. I bring new patrons to show off this hidden gem. Eat here!

You have got to be kidding me? Best chinese food in Houston? After reading a few of the reviews, I thought I would give it a try, being new to the area. The wait staff was rude, the food was anything but tasty and the prices were high for the quality of food. I will not eat here again nor would I recommend it to anyone. I don't see how they are still in business, serving this quality of food.

Wonderful traditional Chinese cuisine. The dinning atmosphere is grand. Staff is professional and customer oriented. They also provide fast and tasty delivery service to River Oaks and Village areas.

Qin's is usually on top of my list as far as Chinese Restaurants go. But today, everything was horrible! I ordered the General Tso's Chicken with hot and sour soup, spring roll, and rice. I asked for the "fried noodles" to go with the soup. I got it "take out", but normally whether take out or eating in, everything is just great!

Well, not today!!! The noodles were fried almost to a crisp (very dark and hard). The spring roll was unedible and very tough, and the chicken and rise was cold.

Maybe they were having a "bad cook" day, but needles to say, lunch was not very good!

Will I eat there again? Probably! It's just that after receiving such good results all the other times I've eaten there, today was a total shocker.

I have been looking for decent Chinese food in Houston and finally found it! Good flavors, light on the oil - it was a pleasant surprise, although it is a bit pricey, but well worth it.

although qin dynasty offers decent food and service, the food itself is hardly real chinese food. not a good place for chinese people, as its menus and stuff are entirely in english. however, it was good overall.

I wanted to splurge (dishes are pricey) so I ordered from Qin Dynasty
for the tasty Buddhas Eggplant dish and a chicken dish and an appitizer. Well,
when ordering over the phone I had the clueless girl repeat the order and she
had it wrong. I corrected her and she was irked I had corrected her. I pick up the $23
order and get home. Open things up and it was the
wrong dish. I called back and the girl wanted to argue with me. And not fix the issue. I
mentioned I had corrected her on the repeat but the girl did not
listen. She did not know what to do. After being on hold for a few
minutes I got her to make the correct dish. I was there in 10 minutes to return the wrong dish and to pick up the correct one. No apologies when I picked it up. I get home and the original part of
the order is cold already and soggy. I dig in on the eggplants and
they are all undercooked. I cannot bite through them. I call the
manager who wanted to do nothing about this issue. He finally says I will give you 50%
off the next visit. I said, next visit how about fixing this visit? I
told him how about I bring this back and you give me a full refund. He
paused, I said I am on my way. I get there and they have my cash right
there and I ask to speak with Johnathan, the manager, he quickly turns away
when he sees me. No apologies.

Wasted an hour, got no food.

Never again.

I eat allot of Chinese and this place is the best to me. I usually go for lunch so it is not as expensive (lunch menu) as the dinner menu, just like all Chinese places. I usually get the general Tso chicken that is made with all white meat. The food always comes out in a timely manner and is always hot. The place is nice but I am an eater and don?t really care about looks, but it is a very nice place.

Quick service during lunch even when there is a crowd. Good lunch specials. Parking can sometimes be a pain.

I usually have this at work and have it delivered. Their delivery service is always fast. They may say 1 hour, but what they really mean is 30 min! The lunch menu is an excellent price for the tasty entrees, a soup, and an appetizer. The regular menu (dinner) is a little pricey but you do get waited on hand and foot when dining in their lavish atmosphere. There hasn't been a menu item that I have been disappointed with. Everyone must try the Kung Pao Chicken!

I have been a customer for more than four years and I have never had a problem with service, food, or anything. Very great takeout for a single person, not huge with lots of leftovers. It usually is just enough for 1-2 meals. The combo meals comes with soup and appetizer. I have only had the wonton, but it is great! My favorite dishes are the Beef with oyster mushroom, Cashew Chicken, and Moo Shu. You must try the dancing tea. It is very cool! Costs a little more that I think it should, but I think it is worth it every once in a while. I wished they served more authentic desserts, very Americanized. All and all, I can't say I have ever had a bad meal at Qin Dynasty and highly recommend for others to try.

I really don't understand how this place is still open. It was good, but not anymore. The vegatables were overcooked, the hot and sour soup was nothing but mushroooms, the wait staff was rude (the delivery guy is even worse). Not only will I not go here anymore, but, in fact, my whole apartment building has decided to ban this place. Yeah, it looks neat, but there is more to a restaurant than appearences...it's what's inside (the food) that counts.

On several occasions we have dined in the splendor that is Qin Dynasty. The staff was attentive but not over-bearing. Although they were limited in the seafood items, the menu offered a variety of dishes to please most diners.
The restaurant is adorned with pieces of art creating a warm, peaceful atmosphere.

I just had an awesome lunch there and look forward to returning for a romantic dinner. The food, service, and especially the decor were all top-notch. Two lunch specials (soup + eggroll or crab puff + rice + large portioned entrees - the kung pao chicken and the shrimp and chicken with cashews) and 2 teas plus a good tip came out to only $20. I can't imagine going anywhere else again for Chinese... The only serious negative was that it just felt too good to be true. :)

My girlfriend was a little disappointed that they only seem to serve chicken as white meat, but that's actually a positive for me. I could also see parking being an issue at certain peak times, but it wasn't a problem for our late lunch and in the absolute worst case, you could park across Buffalo Speedway in the huge Kroger lot.

This is a great Chinese restaurant. The decor is fabulous, the food is authentic and the service is excellent. The ambience is very nice and quiet.

I would highly recommend it over P.F. Chang's or anyplace like that any day.

Step aside, P.F. Chang, there's a new place in town!
Qin Dynasty was an unbelievable dining experience. The Hot and Sour soup was fantastic, the best I have tasted and I've tasted a lot. I've had the Sesame Chicken which was divine and the Beef with Oyster Mushroom which was incredibly tasty and fresh. The wine list is top notch. Overall you will not regret going to Qin Dynasty. And the ambiance will surprise you.

It is so hard to find mediocre service let alone exceptional service which is what we found at Qin Dynasty. I had the spicy dumplings, shrimp Hunan, and sweet and sour scallops. Everything was divine. Decor is lovely. Pricer than most Chinese restaurants, but worth it. They give you these weird cards with pictures of the desserts. What's up with that?

Gin Dynasty was a complete surprise. Located in a new but unassuming strip center we expected to find a run of the mill restaurant. Instead we found a very tasteful and high class restaurant with excellent and friendly service and great food. The best we've experienced in Houston and have returned many, many times, never to be disappointed. Don't go there, however, or we won't be able to get a table!
