Although I am not that kind of a person who likes experimenting with food – I always pick familiar items off the menu but my latest experience at Dynasty Avari has made me realize that it’s good to explore different cuisine.

On the advice of a friend I went to Dynasty Restaurant situated on the ground floor of Avari Towers. As soon as I entered the restaurant, I got the sense that I would really going to enjoy my time here.

Dynasty has a typical oriental ambiance with interiors primarily in hues of red and yellow.  Even the cutlery has these shades with Chinese pattern beautifully embellished on bowls and platters.

To celebrate Year of the Roosters, Dynasty Avari has designed a special menu offering variety of Chinese food including Crab meat and fresh green asparagus soup, scallop Wonton in broth, combination cold platter and a main course featuring Golden crispy chicken breast with sweet honey sauce and crispy-fired duck breast with sweet and sour plum sauce and much more.

Our dinner started off with a refreshing welcome drink with a required tanginess giving it a unique flavor.

Next on menu was Crab meat and fresh green asparagus soup – overloaded with meat it was warm and delicious – in short, quite acceptable for Pakistani taste buds.

The combination platter was truly a visual delight – it was beautifully presented with large servings of beef, chicken, prawns and vegetables. Among all options, my favourite was prawns dipped in a divine sauce – they were so scrumptious that I could  still feel its taste in my mouth.

In the main course, we had crispy golden chicken – it was a bit let down. Although the meat was cooked to perfection but it had a greasy coating which was less crispy and more oily. It was served with chili-based red sauce – it was less spicy and add required zing to the bite.

Wok grilled beef tenderloin with Cantonese Char Siu sauce was also tasty – the beef was tender and thoroughly cooked but it was served with too much sauce which ruined beef basic flvour. I would give it 7/10.

Wok fried tiger prawns with XO sauce was good too. The sauce had that typical Cantonese flavor enhancing taste of prawns. I really loved their portion size – it was fulfilling and not costly at your pocket.

I ended my dinner with variety of desserts available in the buffet – and they all were totally divine and rich.

Overall I had great time at Dynasty Avari and would love to visit it again soon. Chinese food festival at Avari Hotel continues from January 27 to 11 Feb, 2017.
