Up two flights of crimson stairs, the golden doors of Commerce Gate Dynasty Cuisine fling open to reveal an enormous dining room and event space. Miniature chandeliers glitter between the lines of red-and-gold moulding, and below, friends gather around tables of dim sum and traditional Chinese entrees. The menu is nearly long enough to have chapters, with options ranging from crispy deep-fried chicken to tender fillets of fish with chili. Another favourite is the sweet 'n' sour chicken, whose dichotomous flavours mirror the personalities of most beauty-pageant competitors.
