Dynasty Chinese Seafood is a popular Chinese restaurant in Cupertino square shopping center. It is a huge restaurant with many rooms. They are home to many large wedding banquets. They serve dim sum for lunch, and use dim sum carts on the weekends. We have been here for wedding banquets, so it was time to try it for lunch.

Picks:

Dynasty Seafood Restaurant Cupertino Roast Duck

Roast Duck ($6.50) is definitely on the the better ones around. Nice textured skin, succulent juice, and perfectly cooked meat.

Steamed Chicken Feet ($3.30) is an acquired taste, and a good place to start is here. Well cooked and very chewy cartilage.

Tripe ($3.80) is a simple dish of chewy goodness. Good quantities bathed in a nice broth.

Steamed BBQ Pork Bun ($2.80) were 3 good sized buns still steaming hot and filled with slightly sweet BBQ pork.

Dynasty Seafood Restaurant Cupertino Pan Fried Turnip Cake

Pan Fried Turnip Cake ($2.80) looked pretty simple but was one of the better versions around. Nice thick turnip layers with a slightly hardened pan fried crust.

Dynasty Seafood Restaurant Cupertino Fried Pork Dumpling

Fried Pork Dumpling or Ham Sui Gok ($3.30) were three deep fried dumplings full of pork goodness. Excellent flavor and crispiness.

Dynasty Seafood Restaurant Cupertino Fried Taro Dumplings

Fried Taro Dumplings ($3.30) was very flaky and crunchy. The taro flavor was just right.

Dynasty Seafood Restaurant Cupertino Shrimp Rice Noodle

Shrimp Rice Noodle ($4.80) was slurped down quick. Lots of good quality shrimp, tender noodle, and not much greasiness.

Dynasty Seafood Restaurant Cupertino Coconut Red Bean Jelly

Coconut Red Bean Jello ($2.80) was filled with thick coconut flavor and just a touch of beans.

Dynasty Seafood Restaurant Cupertino Lotus Wrapped Sticky Rice

Lotus wrapped sticky rice ($3.80) were 3 medium sized units filled with sticky rice, pork, sausage, and egg. Well done.

OK:

Dynasty Seafood Restaurant Cupertino Steamed Pork Ribs

Steamed Pork Ribs ($3.30) were pretty greasy and filled with fat. Not much flavor.

Dynasty Seafood Restaurant Cupertino Sesame Balls

Fried Sesame Balls ($3.30) were fresh out of the fryer but not very good. Thick texture, bland filling.

Dynasty Seafood Restaurant Cupertino Mango Pudding

Mango Pudding ($2.80) was average. Not much real mango flavor. Very sweet.

Pans:

Dynasty Seafood Restaurant Cupertino Shanghai Dumplings

Shanghai Dumplings or Xiao Long Bao ($3.80) did not have much soup in them. Flavor wise they were fine. Shouldn’t have ordered them from a Cantonese restaurant!

Dynasty Chinese Seafood had fair service, you had to hail down waiters to get thing done. There is a lot of dim sum that does not hit the carts, so ask the waiter for an order form. The food was of high quality and at reasonable prices. We have no problem recommending this restaurant and wonder how dinner would be. The dim sum is some of the best in the SF Bay Area, but Koi Palace still ranks higher. Hong Kong is home of the best.

After paying the bill, they gave us a coupon for free Salt & Pepper Shrimp for dinner.
