Old fave

This is an all time favourite, or used to be. Part of the Harrisons Hotel, has been in existence for a better part of my life. The old style hotel has now been torn down, and rebuilt into a multi-storey building hosting the same restaurants as before, Meenam and Dynasty.

If i remember correctly, i was introduced to the 'manchurian', thanks to Dynasty. Good chinese food, meant Dynasty once upon a time.

The services was mixed. I must thank Mr. Jeffery (forget his last name), who seemed to care, but boys in the red suit were not as friendly or careful. Mr. Jeffery with his black coat and all, is the head waiter (if you can use that title here), and obviously was required to override decisions or rules.

We ordered starters, main course all too quickly, hungry as we were. Crispy lamb, dry chilli chicken, veg balls manchurian, and crispy chicken and fuyong. For main course, it was two kinds of fried rice, and soft noodles....Lemon chicken....

Definitely going there again

Chinese restaurants are everywhere! I’ve gone to places that claim to serve authentic Chinese fare and come out thoroughly disappointed by their overtly boring and bland fare. I’ve also been to places who go overboard with their “indo-chinese” concept and add tadka to Chilly Chicken!

Dynasty’s branch at Anna Nagar is dingy and rather retro, I’ve heard. Their outlet at Harrisons though not uber cool is decent looking. I usually eat out with a big group of friends but happened to go to Dynasty with just one. Not a big surprise then that we couldn’t try desserts :( We were too full for that. We tried the Char Kway Teow (Malaysian style flat noodles), Chilly Beef, Chicken with mushrooms (cooked Schezwan style) and a starter that resembled fried momos but had a unfamiliar name. The noodles was a little sweet and that’s not how I usually like my food but it was quite yummy, anyway. The starter and Chicken too were really good and we wiped our plates off with gusto. However, the dish that stood apart and made us cry out loud,”Praise the Lord” as we bit into each piece was the Chilly Beef! :D It was simply exceptional with the beef being crisp but yet with some amount of moistness in it and the right amount of flavour and spice. This is one dish you must try if you’re here. Try this tip of mine- have it simply with plain rice.

I’m no Chinese cuisine expert but trust me, Dynasty serves some pretty awesome food. I can’t vouch for the authenticity though and the dishes might be tweaked up a little for the Indian palate but you will never have it and go,”Omg, what’s with all the masala?”

A big thumbs-up for Dynasty from me.

Food- 4/5
Ambience- 3/5
Service- 4/5
VFM- 3.5/5

P.S: They serve alcohol. Yes, you can do what you can’t do at most other places- enjoy your meal with some good chilled beer :)
