Dynasty Chinese Seafood Restaurant is an upscale Chinese Restaurant located in the heart of Townsville on Flinders Street, the main street of Townsville. Open for lunch and dinner Monday – Saturday and dinner service on Sunday. While this restaurant is named a seafood restaurant, the menu is extensive with every type of classic Chinese dishes including rice, noodles, chicken, beef, lamb, pork, vegetables and even some crocodile dishes.
The prices are a bit higher that other Chinese restaurants in Townsville though the quality of the food and service do make this restaurant more of a fine dining restaurant compared to the average Chinese Restaurant.
The Chefs Specials listed in the menu are Mongolian Lamb ($31), Quail Chilli ($37), BBQ Pork with Plum Sauce ($31), Braised Crocodile with Ginger and Shallot ($37.50), Braised Crocodile Garlic, Chilli and Coriander ($37.50), Pork Ribs Salt and Pepper ($33) and the Pork Ribs Chinese Style ($33).
I went in for dinner and went for their number Chef’s Special of the Mongolian Lamb. The dish came out sizzling on a hot plate and was delicious. The lamb was so tender and the Mongolian sauce was slightly peppery with strong flavours.
I didn’t have an entree so after polishing off the Mongolian Lamb I decided to have a dessert and being a big kid I could not go past the deep fried ice-cream. Another quality dish!
As I mentioned before, the prices are a bit high at this restaurant. One of the biggest shocks for the prices was the cost of steamed rice. They charge a whopping $11.80 for rice! You can buy a kilo of rice at the supermarket for $3, so not sure how they can justify such a high price. Even high class Chinese restaurants in Sydney only charge $3 – $4 for steamed rice. Oh well, it must be special rice they serve in Townsville! Still a great meal but the cost of steamed rice did leave me scratching my head!
