Dynasty: A Stroke of Oriental Flavours in Bhopal

Tucked in a nook of Noor-Us-Sabah Palace in Bhopal is a compact pan Asian restaurant named Dynasty. I had the pleasure to visit this humble regal house of oriental flavours during my stay with Noor-Us-Sabah Palace, and I had so much fun eating here that I had to share it with you. To get to Dynasty, walk past the Marble Arch restaurant on the ground floor and take a right to get to this oriental restaurant.

This restaurant confers a gratifying contrast to the rest of the hotel, draped in an exquisite assemblage of centuries-old collector’s items and royal decor. Dynasty takes you away from the arches and illustrious columns and allows you to feel an unconventional western environment. Dynasty is the newest addition to the Noor-Us-Sabah kitchen complex, categorically designed, to cater to authentic Asian cuisine demands. On the inside, Dynasty is embellished, with Eastern decor featuring beautiful pagoda wall hangings and overhanging wooden ceiling in yellow.

However small, Dynasty is a great restaurant to enjoy an intimate dinner. It stays closed all day and opens early in the evening. The indulgent meal I relished at Dynasty comprised of a progressive menu that rouses all the senses. Big thanks to Executive Chef Suman Rakshit, who curated a special menu for me so that I get to sample pretty much all the significant dishes.

Kolkata born Suman Rakshit has served many world-class restaurants and is predominantly famous for his boundary-pushing dishes at Noor-Us-Sabah in Bhopal. In a brief conversation, chef Rakshit revealed that while he enjoys cooking traditional dishes, he built an oriental menu at Dynasty to cater to the palate of national and international guests with progressive tastebuds.

He then introduced me to some of the most-devoured dishes at the restaurant. The sampling began with Sichuan chilli baby corn tossed in sweet and sour flavourings and Swan Chee – a chicken preparation served with burnt chilli and peanuts. Every five minutes, a new dish, was produced on the table! The arrangement featured Tsinghua, Tai Chin chicken, Zacatousi and honey glazed sesame chicken. Tsinghua is an unblemished symmetry of starchy potatoes and sweet corn in a hot and tangy sauce.

Tai Chin chicken is a piercingly flavoured dish served on the bed of crispy spinach, and Zacatousi is wok-fried Siamese chicken cooked in black bean sauce. The stewed Semur Ayam has an authentic Asian touch to it, while the honey glazed sesame chicken is a burst of sweetness.

No matter what you choose to eat at Dynasty, its marvellous ambience and plush sofas imbued in the shades of royal red and gold will ensure that you have a comfortable dining experience. For my first visit, I could not stop drooling over the Japanese flooring and Eastern-influenced ceiling. Tucked away from Bhopal’s hullabaloo, Dynasty effortlessly revives the best of Asian cuisine in a royal premise. Been here already? Tell us about your experience in the comments below.
