This must be like the top of the range of restaurants in the Paradise group of Chinese restaurants. I love treats and tonight was no different. This is a Cantonese restaurant that also served wine. The food here was a change from the other foods that I normally eat. This was to celebrate a special occasion and it was simply nice to be with family over a fine meal.
Located in the Marina Bay Financial Centre, the restaurant serves fine Chinese food with fine wine. This combination is unique because usually a Chinese restaurant does not display their bottles of fine wine. The decor is also more western and contemporary, as opposed to strictly Chinese, reflecting the modernity of the place that it is located in.
So far, I have eaten at Paradise Inn, Paradise Dynasty and now Paradise Pavilion. The food in all the restaurants are good for the price that they command, and this place is no different. This restaurant is the finest that I have eaten at, in the Paradise group of restaurants.

Yummy roast pork and char siew. The proportion of meat to fat is just right, leading me to think that cooking this must be an art in itself. The skin is nice and crispy. It was served with a dash of mustard.
Battered fried prawns with salted egg. This too was delicious!
Peking duck being served. Slicing the skin off at the right thickness is also an art form. There are also different textures of duck meat which is served differently. I did not know there was a difference before. First, the skin is served. Then the more tender moist meat bits are served, followed by the meatier and ‘rougher’ bits.
The duck skin is served first.
The duck meat follows. These bits were tender and moist.
Beef steak pieces. This may have been wagyu because they were really tender and succulent.
Mushroom and spinach vegetables
