1600th review!!!!128525

I opted to celebrate my Birthday here for a number of reasons I have in mind. I thought that having Lunch here with the family is extra special and they have what I imagined my birthday to be. It is located in a well very classy Mall that is S'Maison in Conrad Hotel.
Aside from the reason that this is not crowded here, it is also super near my place. Everything was just perfect, I thought. 128525

Here I arrived 11am with the baby, their opening time.
Though I called a day ahead, I wasn't given a reservation coz they only give it to VIPs who'd occupy a private room with a minimum consumable amount.

Still, I thought we got one of the best seats...round table for 8, in the middle aisle and fronting the Sea view! We were also very well assisted in everything!
More so, that the staffs carefully kept my cake in the fridge and didn't charge me any corkage fee at all. 127874

Btw, this is what we ordered.

Special Dynasty XLB 8pcs for only P388
- they must be really proud to have more than 8 flavors of Xiao Long Bao. Original is good but the Cheese and truffle is the best,imo.
Pork dumpling Chili Vinaigrette P168
- definitely a fave of mine. Spicy dimsum!
Radish pastry P138
-more like a bread with Croissant texture and custard filling inside.

Steamed Pork & Chive P168
- a typical pork dimsum like gyoza
Dynasty Crispy Chicken P298
- crispy, deep fried Salted Chicken.
Crystal Prawns P588
- you should try this!!! Prawns bathed in salted egg flavor, really really delicious!

Sweet & Sour Fish P328
-mom's fave so far. She likes this dish everywhere we go.

Tofu with Pork mushroom P288
- oh, this is spicy but delicious and meaty and have generous amount of shrooms!!!

Shanghai Fried rice P238 is almost like a Yang Chow to me.

Stirfried La Mian with shredded Pork and black Fungus P238
Oh, this is soo good! Add this to your must try! It serves as my Pancit Canton on my Birthday! pampahaba ng buhay! Yummy!!!

Lamian with Braised Pork Belly in Signature Pork Bone Soup P330 foe a big bowl! We were all able to have a taste of it! I never expected to have a good Ramen at a chinese Resto! 128525 It is one of their best sellers!

Extra plain rice/cup P60

Overall, the experience was just incredible! They even gave me a Birthday song whilst I blow my cake! Thank you so much! Superb service!!!

While on the way to S Maison, I was already bent on having Paradise Dynasty’s XLB. I dunno, but when my dimsum craving starts.. well, it often seems to last for a while hehe.

Anyway, as usual though we went around 8:30pm, the place was quite packed, most tables were occupied. We were immediately seated as there were some vacant seats available which is a good thing.

Having already eaten dinner at home, we only went and had a ~light~ meal.

We had their..
-stir-fried beef w/scallion: I was disappointed with this one. The beef slices looked sad on the plate and there were only a few pieces - fewer than the last time we ordered it. Maybe because when we went it was almost closing time..?
-specialty xlb: the 8 flavors XLB! This must be my 3rd/4th visit but it’s something that I haven’t failed to order every time. My faves would be the truffle and cheese, but as I like the variety, I seem to always go for this one. Anyway, it’s really good! All the xlbs have distinct flavors so I think even with your eyes closed you can really tell them apart, not just from their colors.
-charcoal custard bun: Yum!! Actually, another reason why I wanted to come back to Paradise Dynasty. And it was worth the trip! Yep, the presentation was 💯 and so was the taste. The taste of the custard did sort of remind me of condensed milk hehe.
-fried rice: just okay, a bit oily.
-soup: forgot what it’s called but it wasn’t my order so. But my mom did like it haha

Price is a bit on the high side. The ambiance is nice too. Cleanliness is just okay (my spoon - the one for the soup - had a bit of a smudge on it which bothered me. I did get it replaced).

(Note: not sure why, but I’ve been cropping the photos and yet they’re still turning up all wonky!! 128560128542)

Last Sunday, we celebrated mother's day with my sister and her husband, plus her in-laws. We postponed it a week after the actual date, because I was still recovering from sore eyes that time.

We got to S Maison at around 12:30PM, and were lucky to be seated promptly. 128522 Good thing their Sunday lunch didn't seem as busy as I thought it would be. More people means we get to try more food, so I giddily waited for our orders. We got the following:

✅ SIGNATURE ORIGINAL XIAO LONG BAO (Php 298 - 10 pcs) - 11088110881108811088
Their original xiao long bao is good, but I like DTF's better. Nevertheless, the soup was flavorful, and the wrapper was thin enough so it wasn't doughy, but enough to envelope the soup and the meat. 128522

✅ BLACK TRUFFLE XIAO LONG BAO (Php 330 - 6 pcs) - 1108811088110881108811088
OKAY. Now this was really good. 128525 More flavorful than the original one, this is definitely the leveled up version of the original classic xiao long bao. Hate to admit it, but I have a growing fondness for truffle flavored things now. 128513 This one's delicately flavored and was nothing too overwhelming. Definitely something I'd love to order again!

✅ RADDISH PASTRY (Php 138 - 3 pcs) - 1108811088110881108811088
During a previous visit, I have grown to love this so much that I can't imagine coming here and not getting this. 128517 The Raddish Pastry is not too oily, unlike the fried Raddish Cake in Chinese restaurants. The raddish filling was tasty; and the combination of textures between the mushy raddish and the flaky pastry was definitely enjoyable.

✅ STEAMED GLUTINOUS RICE STUFFED IN RED DATES (Php 238) - 11088110881108811088
I thought this was meant to be eaten as a dessert, but it can actually serve as an appetizer too. 128522 The red dates were quite sweet, and the glutinous rice stuffing tasted a bit milky. It was delicious and filling! 128513

✅ KUNG PAO CHICKEN (Php 298) - 11088110881108811088
The chicken was tender, with the right amount of spice. I love how they used cashews instead of the usual peanuts, as the texture was a bit unique than the usual kung pao chicken. 128523

✅ STIR-FRIED BEEF WITH KAI LAN (Php 388) - 1108811088110881108811088
The beef was EXTREMELY tender! 128558 I can't believe beef can me this melt-in-your-mouth. The dish was well-seasoned, and the vegetables were nice and crisp. Perfect with plain rice -- to bring out the flavors of this dish fully. 128521

✅ STIR-FRIED SPINACH WITH MINCED GARLIC (Php 288) - 1108811088110881108811088
Okay. I love how restaurants cook their spinach. 128525 I mean, how can't we achieve this at home??? Crisp veggies, but not undercooked. The sauce was tasty and garlicky, a perfect match to the freshness of the spinach. A bit pricey, but it was so good -- it's worth it!!! 10084

I split this with my mom, so we can try more dishes. The serving size was a bit "alanganin". Too huge for one person, but a bit small if it was split for two people. It is served in a huge bowl: but the contents were just half of it. 128517 The hand pulled noodles were good, as always. The pork bone soup was surprisingly rich, and it matched well with the sliced beef toppings. I wish the beef was a bit juicier though, but it was really tender. 128522 But, I still prefer the la mien with chicken soup.

✅ CHARCOAL CUSTARD LAVA BUN (Php 188 - 3 pcs) - 1108811088110881108811088
This was another appetizer / dessert dish that we got. After a bite, I was a bit confused whether it was filled with custard or salted egg, but it was good nonetheless. 12851710084️ The charcoal buns were really fluffy and yummy, too!

I normally don't like eating red bean desserts, but this one was actually yummy! The rice roll was super soft, it feels like you're biting into clouds, as my sister's husband's sister (is she considered as my sis-in-law too?) put it. The grated nuts added a layer of sweetness and texture to it, too. 10084

Pardon me for the lack of photos though. I was shy too take a photo of everything, so I just took photos of some of the dishes that were near me. 128518 Paradise Dynasty has got to be one of my favorite Chinese restaurants, because it has plenty of menu items, and many of them are quite unique. 10084

Service was not as good as the food though. Some requests had to be repeated twice or thrice before they were fulfilled. They weren't attentive enough to place the food on our table properly, too! One server almost placed another dish ON TOP of a plate filled with another dish. I mean, how clumsy is that? 128530 What if the plate was dirty? Deducting a 11088 for this. Huhu.

Still, I'd definitely come back again to try more dishes. Hopefully, service will be at par next time. 128522

Drunken Chicken- I'm a big fan of Paradise Dynasty's majority of dishes because of its distinct and authentic qualities.

The drunken chicken looks like the Singaporean Hainanese Chicken yet the taste is a bit odd to the Pinoy palate,strong Asian wine flavor.I like it but I think its not for everyone.

Since my sister and I are both working full time jobs, it's usually during the non-working holidays that we get to go out as a family (mom, sister, me). Last November 1, we decided to eat out for lunch. We researched on where to eat, but since I've always wanted to go to Tsujiri (more about this on my next review), we decided to go to S Maison in Conrad Manila.

It was my first time to visit this mall, and I was in awe at how nice the interiors looked! After walking around, we finally decided to eat at Paradise Dynasty. 10024 I'm glad we got there quite early, so we did not have a hard time getting seats. Here's what we got for our holiday splurge:

✔ SIGNATURE ORIGINAL XIAO LONG BAO (Php 188 - 6 pcs) - 11088110881108811088
I've tried several xiao long baos from different restaurants already, and in my heart, it has always been DTF who has the biggest chunk of my xiao long bao loving heart... And after this meal, that fact still holds true. While PD's XLBs are not bad, I feel like the soup was not that rich nor flavorful. The meat tasted okay, but the wrapper was a bit too floury. Sorry, but, DTF pa rin!! 128149

✔ FOIE GRAS XIAO LONG BAO (Php 330 - 6 pcs) - 110881108811088
Probably the weakest dish we got that day. I'm not sure how this should taste like, to be honest. But I was expecting more... I was savoring my foie gras XLB, waiting for the "explosion" of flavors, but I never experienced it. 128530 Made me think it's alright to miss out on the 8-flavor xiao long bao.

✔ RADDISH PASTRY (Php 138) - 1108811088110881108811088
128525128525128525!!! AHHHH THIS WAS SUPER GOOD! This is PD's fearless twist on the traditional Raddish Cake dimsum item, but I tell you, it is a gazillion times better! 128156 While the traditional raddish cake is usually oily and cloying when you had a bit too much, this one's light and does nor have any hint of oiliness at all. The mashed raddish is enveloped inside a puff pastry exterior, and the taste was so well-balanced. It's so yummy, I wanna jump for joy with each bite. 128149

✔ BRAISED TOFU AND SLICED PORK WITH MUSHROOMS (Php 288) - 11088110881108811088
Tender and flavorful pork, silky tofu, and delicately flavored mushrooms, it's a classic dish that is great to be paired with rice. There was actually nothing unique about the dish, but it tasted great nonetheless. 128076

✔ SPICY SZECHUAN CRISPY CHICKEN (Php 298) - 1108811088110881108811088
My sister has already tried this before when she had dinner here with her in-laws, and she recommended this to us. We loved it too! 128525 The spiciness was just right to excite our palates, and the crispy-on-the-outside but juicy-on-the-inside fried chicken bites won our hearts! Yummy! Can be eaten on its own or with plain rice. 128076128149

✔ LA MIEN SERVED WITH DOUBLE-BOILED CHICKEN SOUP (Php 330) - 1108811088110881108811088
PD has an extensive menu on noodles, and they take pride in their own la mien (hand-pulled noodles). 127836 We got this for sharing, but this can be eaten by one hungry person. 128513 The noodles were so firm, and when you add the soup to it, it does not get soggy at all. The soup was exquisite and fit for a king. I guess boiling it twice did the trick. 128527 It was sooo rich, flavorful, and yummy until the last drop. The chicken's meat was super tender, too! Don't dare miss out on this! 128149

The ambiance was nice as there are gold accents everywhere which are reminiscent of a Chinese palace. But, I heard from a friend that there's a portion in the restaurant that has the bay view! 127754 Gotta sit there next time. 128513

Servers were generally attentive and nice. They actually even learned to say "欢迎光临, 来乐天皇朝!" Which means, "Welcome to Paradise Dynasty!" I'm amazed that their accents are quite good. 128076 They also respond promptly to requests. There was just one instance where the supervisor / manager forgot to serve us our additional plain rice order, but I suppose it was an honest oversight.

Overall, the food was awesome, and I would surely come back to try their other mouthwatering dishes! 128149 I'd still get the Raddish Pastry, though! 128525

Finally trying Paradise Dynasty after almost a year since its opening. Like any other, I wouldn’t miss their signature xiao long baos. However, since we were in a group, we ditched the 8 flavors basket and chose those we just wanted instead.
SIGNATURE ORIGINAL XIAO LONG BAO | Php298 10 pcs 11088110881108811088
Xiao long bao was good, better than the average – soupy, flavorful and enough skin to shell the meat and soup inside. To enjoy it to the fullest, nip a bit of skin then dip it into the sauce and eat the whole thing in one go. Make sure not to let those juices drip and go to waste!
BLACK TRUFFLE XIAO LONG BAO Php330 6pcs 1108811088
Based from the reviews, people were raving about the black truffle flavor so I thought that this is a must order. I was quite surprised that I was not the only one who did not taste the truffle flavor. As a matter of fact, 4/5 of us did not. Maybe it was a bad batch but it tasted like the original one but in color black. It’s still good but we couldn’t feel but ripped off.
DEEP-FRIED CHINESE BUN Php75 3pcs 1108811088110881108811088
I don’t know why but we always order this regardless of which Chinese restaurant we go to. Simple dish, executed well.
PORK DUMPLING WITH HOT CHILI VINAIGRETTE Php168 6pcs 11088110881108811088
Flavorful pork dumplings with a generous serving of meat in a hot chili vinaigrette. This dish is transparent – exactly how it is described. Good dish!
SPICY SZECHUAN CRISPY CHICKEN Php298 1108811088110881108811088
Crowd favorite right here! Chicken is indeed crispy and sze chuan flavors were spot on. My dad rarely compliments any dish, especially Chinese food, but he liked this one even if he did not voice it out. It was obvious since he kept asking for more. For those who can’t handle heat well, if you avoid all the chilis, the spice level is tolerable. Two thumbs up!
DEEP-FRIED GARLIC PORK RIBS Php388 1108811088110881108811088
Really enjoyed this one! Crispy breading, tender meat and good flavor – two thumbs up!
STIR-FRIED BEEF WITH SCALLION Php388 11088110881108811088
Super tender beef in oyster sauce topped with scallions. Will always one of my favorite Chinese dishes.
A classic Chinese dish that never goes out of style. If you need to order veggies, go for this one.
Not what I had in mind when I think of Chinese noodles. Usually, the broth is quite thin paired with house made hand-pulled noodles. PD’s version had a silky and thicker broth consistency while noodles were the usual hand-pulled ones. The only negative thing with dish is that I didn’t see any seafood as it claimed but the flavors were good.
LA MIAN with MINCED MEAT AND MUSHROOM SAUCE (DRY) Php230 11088110881108811088
The mushroom flavor was stronger than the meat taste, but still good. Broth/sauce still had that same silky and thick consistency.
I can’t believe four ladies and one dad finished all those orders in one sitting. Burp! Overall, I think I had a good visit. Recommended dishes are the original XLBs, spicy Szechuan crispy chicken, and deep-fried garlic pork ribs. Fortunately, we did not experience the bad experience many people were complaining about. Also, we were able to get seated quick. Maybe because it was still early, around a quarter before seven. See you again PD!

From Singapore, Worlds First 8 flavoured Xiao Long Bao is here in the Philippines.

Paradise Dynasty is located at 2nd floor of S Maison of Conrad Hotel Manila.

Went here last August 13 with hubby after attending the History Con. We had our early dinner here. Really dying to try the colorful Xiao Long Bao, it's like a rainbow of Xiao Long Bao and each color represents flavor. They gave us a piece of paper also how to eat it and the waiter gave us tip which flavor of Xiao long Bao must eat first till end and we follow his instructions. Aside from Xiao Long Bao we had the following dishes:

✅ Special Dynasty Xiao Long Bao 8 flavors (8pcs) - 388 pesos
✅ Yang Zhou Fried Rice - 238 pesos
✅ Stir Fried Beef with Scallion -388 pesos
✅ Ramen
✅ Dessert: Glutinous Rice Ball topped with grated nuts (4pcs) 138 pesos

The restaurant was very classy. And servers were very hands on every table and even gave me a contained where I can put my bag.

Price is worth it.

Overall all experience is 1108811088110881108811088

Tempted to try the Dynasty 8-flavor Xia Long Bao but Original won my heart over. Restaurant is full swing but the efficiency of the attending staff is commendable. Will definitely try the noodles on my next visit.

I was really enticed by their multi colored or rather flavored xlb but was taken aback that it cost 400++, sorry ive tried countless xlb at various places but it doesnt cost that much. Instead their la mien catches my attention.

I asked to be seated and since im rolling by myself and theres a table just 3 ft on my front, i signal that if i can be seated at that corner, the response was a stern please wait we are looking for a table for you, sabay harang by the men in black with radio, hmmm at 3pm theres no waiting line nor i look or smell awful that time, im sure im aptly dressed 128516 but why the heck with the elitist attitude. Anyway proceed with their lamien and it was not really a lamien at all but rather more like ramen. 128518 with so less soup. And an awful egg, no kidding, i has this salty weird taste that i brought up with them, the other table has the same order like mine but they are complaining about the lack of soup. Lol

The soup was good as well as the meat and noodles but the service, egg and lack soup was the reason for the 2 stars. And this rating is just for the la mien which is not really la mien at all, if i knew i will go with mazendo instead.

Im sure their xlb is fine but im not prepared to shell out 128181 for 8 pcs.

Papapaparadise! 128518 My friends from Cebu wanted to eat here so this is where we brought them for dinner. Yayyyyy!!! 127881127881

For 4 girls, we kind of ordered a lot but because they won't be able go eat here again soon, YOLO!! 128563128541

2 Specialty Dynasty Xiao Long Bao (4.5/5)
1 Signature Original Xiao Long Bao (4/5)
1 Pan-fried Pork Dumpling (3.5/5)
1 Radish Pastry (4/5)
1 Deep Fried Garlic Pork Ribs (3.5/5)
1 Stir-Fried Shredded Pork in Black Bean sauce served with Chinese crepes (4/5)
1 Stir-Fried Beef with assorted Mushrooms in Szechuan Bean sauce (4.5/5)
1 Yang Zhou Fried Rice (4/5)
1 Stir-Fried La Mian with Shredded Pork and Black Fungus (5million stars!!!!!! 128155)

And surprisingly, we managed to "almost" finish everything! 🤗

Our favorites (and also the must tries) are the radish pastry, stir fried beef, la mian noodles, and of course, XIAO LONG BAO!!! 💯

My most most favorite was the la mian noodles. I liked how simple yet so much tasty the dish was. I think I ate most of the noodles. Sarap!!! 🤤🤤

SERVICE was weird. It's good but servers aren't that "respectful". I don't like how they treat and communicate with the customers.

It isn't my first time here....

I usually go for the dry noodles with scallions and truffle xlb! These two are my usual order and I don't even have to think anymore! I absolutely love these two dishes and yeap! They were just as awesome as before.

This time, I decided to try out something new. This was their stir fried beef with kailan! Oooohhh! Another new found fave! I love the way the dish was seasoned! I love the sauce they had! I love how tender the beef was! I also love the kailan, it was a great conpliment to the dish.

The service was pretty good. Staff were attentive and super quick! They took good care of us and they even gave us a bag holder so that we were comfortable in our seats and not cramped up.

I never thought I'd get to try this place soon because of its location but here we are. 128514

We had some errands in the MOA area and decided to look for a place to have dinner at in S Maison. We just had Japanese food for lunch that day so we decided to try Paradise Dynasty.

We both wanted to try the xiao long bao sampler, which we obviously can't share/split if we wanted to try all the flavors. So we ordered a set each. 🤣

There was a recommended order of eating each XLB from lightest to strongest flavor. You start with the original one first then end with the Szechuan one.

It was a delicious dish overall. Each dumpling was true to its flavor. I was especially delighted with the crab roe one, which really tasted like crab! But my favorite would be the truffle xiao long bao. I haven't tried other truffle-flavored XLBs so I can't really compare but I really like that it didn't taste like artificial truffle. I also enjoyed the Szechuan XLB. This dish will set you back ~P400.

We also ordered a sautéed beef dish and Yang Zhou fried rice. Both were just okay. For their price though, the serving size was pretty small. I was expecting it to be good for 2 people. Price for both dishes was around P700.

We didn't wait that long to be seated because it was past 8PM already when we went there. Place was still packed though. Service was pretty good also.

Food is awesome. Service sucks. Big time.

1. Hour and a half wait time (this one isn't so much of an issue) before sitting ( we were number 10 at 630pm)

2. A little past half of our wait time, we were told that we were next and would be seated in 3 minutes. So we filled up our first order sheet and submitted that. More than 30 minutes passed before we were able to sit. In that time, several other groups of 2 to 5 were called in to sit. One of the supervisors (I think) had the gall to say "thank you for waiting" as we passed by, going to our seats.

3. Seats were not clean and still full of crumbs (at least mine was in that state).

4. When we sat down, a waiter checked to confirm if we ordered 2 la mian with dan dan sauce, not just the one he had punched (we updated the form before submitting so there was an erasure). We confirmed 2. Shortly thereafter, the first one arrived. The second one didn't arrive until the end of the meal, almost an hour after.

5. We asked for the little sauce plates. They gave 5. There were 9 of us. After a while I stood up and just took 4 others myself after asking some wait-staff setting up a table.

6. Despite pre-ordering things (first batch) 30 minutes before, it still took a while for everything to come, even while not considering the la mian with dan da sauce.

7. Twice a waiter comes to our table and states that our order was complete. And it definitely was not - 2 things we had ordered had not yet arrived. One was an appetizer; another the la mian (please refer to point 4). We asked them to just cancel them -- twice. But then they said the la mian was already prepared. It only came a while after the second time. Supposedly the manager or supervisor went to get it.

8. Dad asks for water. Waiter comes after a bit and fills his glass. Most of our other glasses are empty or almost empty. Waiter leaves without saying a word. I believe the pitcher still had water in it.

9. Waiters don't seem to know the concept of personal space.

Anecdote: waiter gives the bill and I check it -- I was tempted to say that one item should be removed because we didnt get it -- Service Charge.

I like XLBs, those bite-sized tasty steamed buns. Been drooling over PD's photos for a long time as I rarely visit this area. You know, the vehicular and pedestrian discipline is chaotic en route to S Maison from where I live.

I've also been skeptical. As in, masarap ba talaga? Well, well, well... Ang saaaarrrrrrraaappppp! Boom, boom, pow! (Menudo sana pero baka konti lang maka relate.) Happy dance in my tongue.

Ok, mejo mababaw. But I really enjoyed it! I think having each piece different in taste was amazing. The soup was warm and flavorful. The filling, had the right amount of spice/flavor for whatever was inside. Of course my favorite was the truffle and foie. I didn't find the Szechuan spicy at all.

The creator of the special set wanted to differentiate himself from the competition by making 8 different flavors. What a visionary.

As this was a prelunch visit that I shared with fellow | peeps, I was only able to taste half of it. I still tried to follow the sequence. When no one wanted to eat the last original xlb, I took it and parang walang lasa tuloy. So it is a must to eat this in sequence.

I decided before the end of the meal that I will definitely come back.

Finally made it. Thank you for all the recos 9786

Since this is an old post, I forgot the names of the dishes. Hahaha. 9996️ The winner for me here was the veggies as they complemented the flavorful rice. I enjoyed the chicken too. It was fried well and doesn't leave you with that oily taste. 128076

Went here to specifically try the 8-flavor xia long bao basket at PHP 388. 128517

As the name suggests, you get 8 flavors ranging from the original to Szechuan. There's a recommended order to eating the colorful soup dumplings as the flavor profiles intensify along the way (instructions provided).

Overall, pretty good experience. I still loved the original flavor but my top picks from the rest would have to be the foie gras and black truffle! 128588
