Better to go hungry. The only thing in its favor was that it was open when most other restaurants were closed for a holiday. The food, ambiance and service were all well below average. Chien means "dog" in French. 'Nuff said.
Suprisingly good but judge from the parking lot. We first went because it was close to the house and real hungry. We were a little hesitant because there were never more than 2 cars in the parking lot. The atmosphere was a little overdone in the fake Chinese way and there were only a couple of other tables occupied at dinner time. Oh well, how bad could it be and besides it had a great fish tank. The surprise was that the food was great especially the governor's chicken, the combination lomein and the Chien Dynasty fried rice but i was disappointed in the won ton soup and the egg rolls. We have been back many times and have tried new things....as long as you get to know their best dishes, you will be very very satisfied....the service is ok but nothing special and the carryout is hot and ample and convenient. Definitely worth a try!
For locals who like their Chinese food served quiet and quaint..
A typical buffet is a chaotic hunting and gathering session, but the Chien Dynasty boasts an incredibly calm atmosphere; the mauve and salmon colors and dimmed lights create such a mood. Roses on each table nudge it into something more romantic.
From the mild mushroom pork to the tongue-torturing Hunan chicken, the afternoon buffet is lined with a variety of tastes. While one may not notice the difference between this and any other Chinese buffet, the food is nonetheless quality servings of full flavor. During dinner, the buffet is put away, but it hardly matters with the enormous amount provided on one plate. The Mu Shu chicken is served as a mound of chicken and veggies with a side of Mandarin pancakes (tortillas) with Hoisin sauce. You know a Chinese food restaurant has faith in its food when bottles of soy sauce are nowhere to be found.
