Where do I begin with my disappointment in this restaurant. My family and I visited yesterday (Father's Day). We were seated immediately. That is where the service ended. We were totally ignored. We waited 15 minutes for someone to come and ask us what we would like to drink (only after I got up to tell the another waitress). We finally got our drinks; never was asked if we were ready to order. Another 15 minutes goes by and another trip to find a waitress. We finally were able to order our meal. Our soup was delivered, but no utensils to eat with: another trip to get them myself. We waited another 30 minutes and no food. The waitress never checked back with us after the delivery of our soup. We were never given an update on the status of our meal or an explanation of what was happening. Sadly we walked out and will never come back.
Imperial Dynasty incorporates a lot of different varieties of Asian cuisine. I usually start my meal off with their new Summer Rolls (non deep fried with shrimp and noodles wrapped). I usually order their Volcano Roll with comes with cooked crab meat and scallops baked on top so its not as greasy as other restaurants. My friend ordered the Mongolian Chicken which has a unique flavor that is hard to explain. You just have to try it! And don't forget to try the Hot and Sour Soup which has a hint of spicy but flavorful tofu, pork and fresh mushrooms inside a thick broth. This is easily my favorite Chinese restaurant in Longwood

I am a long time customer, both in the restaurant and for delivery. I just recently ordered for delivery, their ""Four Season Delight"" which includes Chicken, Beef, Shrimp and Scallops. After it was delivered, I discovered that there were no Scallops. I phoned them and the woman pretty much told me how it was going to go. ""I give you credit"" and when I attempted to express my displeasure she again repeated ""I give you credit you don't want to wait for new delivery."" Well, if I were to have ordered it in the restaurant they would have (I hope) added the Scallops because after all, that is the ""dish."" But instead, I had to accept the dish as it was, which was now I guess, only ""Three Season Delight."" Forget about what I had ordered or what the customer wished. It was obviously there way, which ended up being 15% as I discovered a couple of weeks later, when wanting to place another order. My tip was more than the 15% they were so generously crediting me with. This is not the first time that I was told how things would go. The food is great but don't ever have a legitimate complaint, because it will go as they see fit. Very disappointed and I have been a long time customer but now I am really left with a very bad taste.
I have been going to this restaurant for the last 11 years!! They have the best food and service.The sushi is always fresh and all food is made to order. My server last time I was there Budi and he was so polite and very professional. The manager Kim Miller is always on the floor walking around checking on the customers making sure that everyone is happy. It is a family atmosphere I travel from Palm Coast FL at least once a month with my family to eat here. When you go you HAVE to try their House Fried Rice, Its my husbands favorite, and dont forget to try the Sushi it is the best that I have ever had.

I once ordered a delivery before via online and despite I waited a little longer, the food however, was still warm and delicious. The food I ordered were General Toa Chicken and Pan Fried Dumplings and Spring Roll. Overall, they were well cooked and delicious

I've been an avid Chinese-food lover for my whole life. I've been a resident in the beautiful city of Orlando for over 12 years now. If you've visited here, you will notice many different Chinese restaurants around the region. But none of them can compare to one Chinese restaurant--Imperial Dynasty.
No other Chinese restaurant competes with Imperial Dynasty when it comes to their exquisite Chinese food. Critics and locals rave about their signature dish, the Sesame Chicken which is one of my favorites. But my favorite dish of theirs is the Sizzling Four Season Delight, which comprises of fresh seafood like their jumbo shrimp and large, juicy scallops. And of course there's the beef and chicken which complements wonderfully with the overall dish. There's SOOO much seafood and meat that come in this dish, it's almost like theirs TWO orders combined!
But Chinese food is NOT the only thing Imperial Dynasty does right. Their sushi bar is stocked with fresh sushi and sashimi. If I'm feeling sushi, I usually order their ""Love Boat"" which is JAM-PACKED with a variety of tasty rolls and healthy delights! Did I mention that all their dishes have LARGE portion servings?
Their customer service gives you a warm home-feeling, which makes the food even better. Their online service on their website makes it convenient for me to order whenever I'm online.
If you're looking for Chinese restaurant that will provide you with great service and most importantly, delicious Chinese food, you MUST come try Imperial Dynasty. It is the best in Seminole County and all of Orlando. Take my word for it!
I've yet to have a bad meal here.
My favorite dish is the Mongolian beef, but the chicken cashew or the General Tso's is also very good.
Portions are large so bring an empty stomach. Seating is plenty, but on a busy evening it would be best to call ahead.
Service is good, but I've had a couple of times where the waiter/waitress was lacking.
Sushi is also good, but not my favorite. They have sushi classes every other weekend. I highly recommend it. Lots of fun and perfect to bring a date. Cost is $30 per person.

I just experienced a wonderful thing at a restaurant I have visited. Not only was the food and atmosphere wonderful but they created something I didn't know restaurants did. I experienced my first sushi class. Imperial Dynasty's sushi chef, along with the owners, oversaw 10 of us in the creation of our own sushi masterpieces. The chef guided us step by step on the creations of 3 types of sushi rolls and wraps. We had so much fun, laughing at our masterpieces, and thanking all those responsible for such a wonderful way to pay for our dinner....er, lunch. My Mother would have smacked my hands if she saw what I was doing this afternoon for we were playing with our food. We were wearing gloves of course, and forced to enjoy the seaweed wrapped sushi filled pieces of delight but it was well worth it. If I'm overreacting a bit about all of this, then good! I will never underestimate the skill of a sushi chef again. Steve was flawless and I was.....well, um, I was FANTASTIC!!! (anybody lookin'?)
Thanks to Tony and Kathy and the wonderful Sophia for giving us all such a grand time. Hats off to Sushi Chef Steve for training us and not laughing at his student's results. We tried our best buddy but next time, I'll just let you make my meal. I couldn't stand the looks of mine. :)
