Impressive from the very start, Jade Dynasty Seafood Restaurant is guarded at its entrance by a pair of regal brass horses flanking the delicately carved door. Rich with shades of burgundy and crimson, the spacious main dining area boasts a handsome bar with sparkling crystals overhead and a 32-foot stage that is perfect for a variety of events and celebrations.
Jade Dynasty welcomes large groups and private parties — there are seven private dining rooms complete with audio and video systems — and offers authentic Hong Kong-style family dining from a seemingly limitless menu filled with classic favorites and rare treats.
Highlights include Stewed Beef Brisket in Curry Sauce ($16.95), carefully slow-cooked to reveal all its nuanced flavors. Floating in a delicious tangy curry sauce rich in coconut, each tidbit is mouthwateringly tender and savory.
The restaurant’s Oysters In Half Shell with BBQ Sauce ($14.95) are freshly shucked and beautifully presented. Three plump morsels are sauteed with the chef’s secret homemade sauce, then are placed on refreshing cabbage leaves for a crisp bite.
Both dishes are elegantly served, perfectly delicious, and just a bit self-indulgent, complementing this gorgeous urban oasis located within Ala Moana Center’s Hookipa Terrace.
