You know what people say. If you enter a Chinese restaurant and you can't understand what anyone is saying, then you are probably dining in an authentic place. Paradise Dynasty is one such place. There are just so many things you would like to try...here, but you cannot go wrong with their Xiao Long Bao. They have different types - garlic, crab roe, truffle and even cheese, among others. Tip: Original, crab roe are god, but save space for the mind-blowing garlic flavor XLB. You can easily down a lot, it is so addicting. The serving sizes vis a vis price point are not always consistently what I would say "value for money". For example, for the same amount I would probably get bigger servings and comparable flavors elsewhere, especialy for the fried rice. We enjoyed every meal, especially the XLB and Lava Custard Buns (yum!), also the Kung Pao chicken and sauteed spinach. We didn't care for a dish that had scrambled egg whites and dried scallops, probably an acquired taste or a specific regional delicacy. The mango fruit shake was also incredibly sweet, it tasted like they added mango nectar to sweeten it more. Try it or not, this is the type of cuisine quality you can find in other places.More

My small group of lady friends decided to go to this restaurant for their famous dumplings as well as to enjoy an uncluttered view of the Manila Bay. We came quite early and had a good table for four. Service was fast and we regaled...tasting each dish that was brought in. We had bean curds quite out of the ordinary, noodles, duck which we enveloped in light crêpes, a cool crunchy cucumber salad and the pièce de résistance were the xiao long bao dumplings. You are supposed to start in the middle which was the classic dumpling, then taste the green ginseng one. Going clockwise, the foie gras afterwards, then black truffle, followed by cheese, crab roe, garlic and finally the Szechuan dumpling. It was a feast for the palate and also for the eyes. In these "deprived" moments of a lockdown, memories of that lunch will sustain us and we surely will reward ourselves with another visit once we are able to and have survived!More

Food and ambience were great. I forgot to take a pic of the other food which is a chicken dish. But the food was relly good plus they have a complimentary house tea. Very affordable

Again, one of those restaurants that you always pass by but never had the chance to try. Finally eating here with my older brother and family! First impression, the greeter, unfortunately not so good. She was one one of those really fake smile hostesses. So...pretentious just because she works in this nice restaurant in a nice mall. Anyway after that fiasco of a greeter, the dining experience experience went really well! My beautiful sister in law was the one who ordered. Several Xiao Long Bao, pork, beef, chicken, etc Everything was really good! (See Pics). Unfortunately I can only post 10 pics, there were several more dishes that my SIL ordered. Service was excellent! Everyone serving us was so attentive and friendly. It definitely deserves 5 star rating except for that one flaw! The hostess WITHOUT the mostest. Will I go back there? Of course! Hopefully it’s a different hostess next time!More

This restaurant is the bomb. The ambiance is really nice and you will really feel the Chinese luxury setting when you dine inside. Their food is sophisticated but not too expensive. I invited a couple of friends for lunch and we tried some of their...signature dishes: The original Xiao Long Bao, Shanghai Fried Rice, Stir-fried French Bean w/ Minced Pork, Sweet and Sour Fish, Chilled Tofu w/ Century Egg, Stir-fried Shredded Pork in Black Bean Sauce served w/ Chinese Crepes, Stir-Fried Beef with Scallion, Stir-fried La Mian w/ Shredded Pork and Black Fungus, Glutinous Rice Ball topped w/ Grated Nuts, & Glutinous Rice Ball served with Ginger Soup. THE BEST FOR ME: Shanghai Fried Rice, Xiao Long Bao (they have different kinds some with cheese, or foie gras etc) and Sweet & Sour Fish. The rest were also really good and we still have A LOT to try next time. I give this restaurant a thumbs up for consistency in taste. A MUST TRY!!More

The manager Mario went above and beyond to help us. He got us a VIP room at no extra cost to accommodate our group. When we arrived he was waiting for us at the entrance to greet us! Two other staff were there to greet...us as well. The food was amazing and great price. The service was excellent no complaints at all. Every single person working there provides the best service. We will definitely come back to this restaurant next time!More

Paradise Dynasty has been in the forefront of fine dining restaurant for offering traditional Singaporean-Chinese cuisine that blends northern and southern influences into modern-day culinary wonders. There lots of rave reviews from Chinese food lovers since the restaurant opened its S Maison Mall flagship store...and all for a good reason----it serves food that really satisfies. Paradise Dynasty takes pride in offering delish, traditional Shanghainese with the finest, premium ingredients. The renowned Singaporean restaurant now operates at SM Aura Premier and at The Podium, a 164-sqm dining place that caters to Ortigas patrons. The restaurant exudes a minimalist ambience. There are two function rooms with lazy susan tables and cushioned seats for private functions. These rooms can be combined to accommodate 28-30 people. Its best seller is the 8-flavor Specialty Dynasty Xiao Long Bao (P 388). Paradise Dynasty serves the famous, delicately hand-crafted, Chinese steamed soup dumplings in increasing flavor intensity from Original (white), Ginseng (green), Garlic (brown), Black Truffle (black), Cheese (yellow), Crab Roe (orange), Foie Gras (Gray), and Szechuan (red). Here are equally satisfying appetizers to start you off on a culinary adventure: Radish Puff Pastry (P 138/3-pc serving) is shredded radish filling in a flaky, puff pastry. Go for Chef's Recommendation dishes: Grouper with Pine Nuts and Fruits (P 1288), Grilled Grouper with Tofu in Mapo Style (P 1288) and Deep-Fried Duck with Steamed Bun (P 1288). These perfectly-prepared dishes are only available at The Podium branch. The duck's crispy skin and aromatic meat was done really well. It is best shredded or sliced thinly and eaten wrapped in bread with Hoisin Sauce on the side.More

I don't think they do. You have to be there and they'll provide seats for your group.
