It's no wonder readers give much love to China Dynasty - this highly versatile place has been wokking the wok for over two decades. The Dynasty is reliable enough to never (at least in our experience) botch a takeout order, yet upscale enough to enjoy with a drink and a date. Sure it does a great job with the classic Chinese American favorites we all grew up with, but its lengthy menu also includes stuff like Whole Walleye with Black Bean Sauce and an entire section devoted to healthy eating. Oh yeah, and the Sunday brunch is one of the best Chinese buffets in town.
