Chicken congee, fried rice and black pepper beef is average. Dim sums (pork siumay, siau lung pao, pork bun, fried dumpling) are under quality compare to those in Asia. Location in downtown Cannon St. West Hamilton.

So, so good! The food is amazing and to sit here listening to all the Chinese families that come here to eat is such a great experience. Thank you Crystal Dynasty. May you be here forever!

My wife and I went for Dim Sum recently and, as always, it was very good. As far as Dim Sum in Hamilton goes, this is the best place we have been. Being Chinese, and having lived in cities with far greater Chinese populations, I know my Dim Sum and this is pretty good. Lots of variety. Not necessarily all... More

Most Chinese restaurants are a little quirky and have some really great food. This place is not one of them! I am not sure if there is something good I can say about this place. Dirty bathrooms, dirty carpets everywhere, wait staff is non existent. The lady that looked like the owner was so very rude and dismissive I would... More

Upon entering the restaurant my eyes were drawn to the large family cheerfully eating at the big round table in the corner. I immediately saw that they had a rotating mini table on top of their table that they would rotate to share the delicious food. It spun. My party and I each ordered a dishes as I peered in... More

yummy food. We adore the Hot and sour soup. Their small bowl feed s three persons. The Crystal Dynasty knows how to make amazing eggplant, meat, fish and veggies. SeRvers are pleasant and helpful. More cudtomers appear to be Oriental than caucasian which tells me that the food i s more authentic.

Second visit. I got a dinner for 1, it was huge! The restaurant was not very busy but it took awhile. There is only one last working the dining room and she is not that friendly, you get service when she is ready to give it to you, LOL. The food is typical chinese, fills you up but not too... More

The service is friendly, the staff are helpful as can be with ESL re navigating the menu - there are pictures of the dishes which helps a lot! Spacious dining room with predictable decor. Great for large groups as they have very large round tables to accommodate everyone sitting together. On the numerous occasions I have been, only once was... More
