After reading the reviews on this website I was convinced that Dinastia would have good food at a fair price. Dont be fooled. The food is very poor. I had the fried dumplings and generals tso's chicken. Both dishes were fine but defiantly not good. The sauce was thick and the chicken was not crispy. The atmosphere is not very friendly. Everything feels dirty and could really use a Gordon Ramsay overhaul. For one person the bill came to $16.00 + $4.00 tip. You can do much better in NYC with $20. Maybe the Latin food is better then the chinese but i don't think i will give them a second chance. The wait staff was very good about keeping the water glass filled which was the best part of the meal.

This is THE place to go for Chino/Latino cuisine, and they've been going at it for a long time w/o disappointing. The latin dishes (chicharron de pollo, ropa vieja, bistec de palomilla, masitas de puerco, etc) are the best value in the city, by far.

This is actually my favorite restaurant. I have been coming here since I was a child, which makes it about 20 years now. The waiters are quick, the food is great, it's a friendly place. No flash, all substance. The kind of place that deserves to become your regular place when you think to order in or stop for a bite with some visiting friends. Viva la Dinastia!

We ordered from this place based on the reviews, and they were right. Fast delivery and great food - great portions. The boneless fried chix is delicious (I wish there was a sauce with it though) and the the roast pork appetizer is awesome. We can't wait to order again.

They have been going at it since the seventies and my family has been going here since then. The portions are unbeatable for the price point and out of all of the places I regularly go to or order from this one has NEVER dissapointed. Try the fried chicken (boneless is best), black beans, kung pao (the list goes on) . Delivery is fast and reliable and if you want to dine in the atmospere may seem outdated (In my book changing a thing would be to fix what is not broken) the service more than makes up for it. Try it once you won't regret it I want to make sure they get the business they deserve - to many of the UWS's best places are closing because of rising rents.

The flood has flavor of Spanish cooking. Their Bistec of Palomilla is the best. The waiters are very friendly. Overall is a good place to eat

This is the best chicken cracklin you will ever have. Atmosphere is not brilliant but more family style dining. This place is about good food not pretentious decor. so if you're in for eating this is the hidden treasure.
