Sydney, New South Wales

With its own softly flowing moat, architecture styled to represent a Chinese pagoda and a menu the length of the Wall of China, Canterbury Leagues Club's restaurant, The Dynasty, is brimming with reasons to visit.

Surrounded by a moat and boasting a roof styled to represent a Chinese pagoda, The Dynasty makes an impression from the very moment you step over the bridge that marks its entrance. To the left, through a carved round doorway is a beautifully appointed private dining room; to the right, through another circular entrance, are the white-set tables of the restaurant. At the far front of the dining room, a glistening wooden bar with a collection of tempting liquors smiles at diners (as do the fish that swim in adjoining tanks, promising a fresh seafood selection). A gently bowing ceiling gives the impression of an ancient Chinese pagoda, while large inverted-dome chandeliers cast a soft light and help to isolate the restaurant from the outside world.

The winner of several awards for its yum cha and a la carte cuisine, The Dynasty has a truly extensive menu of Peking, Szechuan and Cantonese delicacies. You can start with a bowl of the controversial shark's fin soup or opt for the less contentious sweet corn and chicken soup. Entrees like san choi bao with chicken or pork, crispy spring rolls and deep-fried prawn cutlets are a great way to get your meal rolling along, but make sure to leave room for mains like the famous Peking duck, which comes sliced and wrapped in a pancake with spring onion and strips of sliced cucumber or one of the many noodle, rice, seafood, chicken, beef or vegetarian dishes. In all, the a la carte menu boasts some 68 different savoury dishes and nine desserts. Speaking of which, a brilliant way of finishing your meal is with a sweet mango pudding, a healthy seasonal fruit platter or the slightly less healthy (but well worth the calories) fried ice-cream.
