5. Golden Dynasty

Golden Dynasty has been a popular spot for locals and visitors alike. Recently they have had issues with consistent quality but their legacy does keep customers coming through the door. Primarily an Indo-Chinese restaurant, the menu can seem a little overwhelming. Seating can be sparse during peak hours. They are open late. The Crispy Chicken appetizer is a must if you’re dining in.
