Dinner at Sweet Dynasty

Sweet Dynasty

This was my first time to go to the new location of Sweet Dynasty. It used to occupy a smaller space down the road. The decor was very basic except for the rosewood furniture.

Now the restaurant is a two-storey modern and gold wonder.

We went there on a Sunday night and the huge second floor was full.

We weren’t very hungry so we ordered mostly dim sum. I was still obsessed with wonton so I ordered a plain wonton soup. The wonton and soup was just ordinary. Nothing like the fabulous wonton at Delicious Kitchen. Even the wonton at Cafe de Coral was better.

I love a restaurant that serves dim sum the whole day. Too bad Sweet Dynasty’s dim sum was bad. The noodle roll was too soft and mushy and there was very little beef and maybe 2 strands of mushroom.

The bean curd roll wasn’t crisp at all and it was very, very greasy. That happens when the oil isn’t hot enough. For dim sum that tastes 100x better go to Chuk Yuen or Pak Loh.

I give them a plus for presentation. A little dry ice makes anything look dramatic and appetizing.

At least the mango pudding was excellent.

I don’t know if I’ll go back to Sweet Dynasty again. We were quite disappointed overall. Maybe we ordered the wrong thing? I’d rather go to Hang Fa Lau for food and dessert. Another place for great desserts is Honeymoon Dessert.
