Paradise Dynasty is part of the Paradise group of restaurants that consistently delivers excellent Chinese food at great value. Here, the focus is on Shanghainese and regional Chinese cuisine, and handmade la mian. The setting is casual and elegant, the service polite and adequate.
A signature here is its Dynasty xiaolongbao, a novel assortment of the traditional Shanghai meat dumpling updated in eight flavours. The black truffle, spicy Szechuan and crab roe xiaolong bao are most memorable. Other noteworthy dishes: The handmade la mian sliced pork and signature pork bone soup is very good, with lively textured fine noodles in a richly brewed broth, as is the Yangzhou meatball soup with crab roe. For those who prefer bold flavours, the poached fish in Szechuan style is excellent. Despite the shocking amount of chilli and hot spices in the broth, the fish slices emerge silky, tender and positively delightful.
Good and light side dishes include chilled seafood and jellyfish in vinaigrette, fluffy scrambled egg white with fish and conpoy, and glutinous rice stuffed in red dates.
