Modesto Dim Sum - Dynasty.

Thanks to Mike who posted about this place. We went to Yosemite for Christmas and stopped by for some dim sum. It's on Coffee Rd. and Standiford. Standiford exit off Hwy 99.

This place's been opened for about 6 months. It's smallish, about 25 tables. But it has surprisingly cart service. There are 40 dim sums on it's menu. You can also order off the menu. The quality of the dim sum is comparable to some of the better places in SF and Sacto, with not as much variety. The owner was in front and his brother was the chef. He told us about the high quality of pork he uses for the shui mai, and comped us a plate. It is indeed leaner and more flavorful than some of the shui mai we had at other places.

Overall, if we live in Modesto, we'd be very very happy to have this place for Chinese food. They only have dim sum on weekends.
