If you’re on the hunt for an authentic, modern Chinese restaurant in Surfers Paradise, you’ve found it. Royal Dynasty in Circle on Cavill shines a light on authentic Cantonese flavours with a focus on seafood, specifically Australian king crab, lobster and abalone. Take a seat in the elaborately decorated oriental dining room and start your culinary journey with some deliciously naughty deep-fried prawn dumplings and a serve of san choy bow, just be sure to leave plenty of room for the crispy-skinned peking duck! If you’re up for something a little different, Royal Dynasty also specialises in a selection of perfectly cooked Australian game meats including crocodile, braised kangaroo and emu. If you find yourself overwhelmed and plagued with indecision, the banquets are an excellent option at $45 and $60 per person. Royal Dynasty is owned by Mr Jack Shum, who boasts over 30 years in the field and has been involved with many successful restaurants including Golden Fortune Chinese Restaurant, Aussie China Kitchen, SKY Broadbeach and the neighbouring Dumpling and Noodle on Circle, so he’s no restaurant rookie.
