Good tasting but fatty ducks

Love their crispy duck, but if you prefer saucy ducks, the crispy duck may be too dry for your taste. I like the sauce on rice. Duck skin is hugely fatty but some people love it. I remove the skin and fats, and only take the meat, hence, only breast meat will do for me.

Go here if I can when I am in London and its never let me down. There is always a queue out of the door. As a place its shabby and tired in side and always has been. The food was great though - crispy duck, Chinese greens, noodles. We went as a family and the kids loved it.

Visited with grandson to give him a taste of authentic Chinese food. Set menu for him with a few additional specials for us. Excellent. Staff very helpful and polite. A good experience.

Very welcoming, lots of Chinese people eating here (a good sign), varied menu and very cosy without being cramped. Every element of the Peking Set Meal B for 3 was delicious. A generous terrine of the most delicious Hot & Sour soup allowed for 2 bowls per person quite comfortably - spice, fragrant, mildly hot, sweet and sour and containing... More

The food here is beautiful! Must try the half duck it's amazing. All good was tasty and fresh, and reasonably priced. Lychee wine is horrendous - like drinking cough medicine. Staff can come across as a little rude and the restaurant is a little small but other than that it's a lovely place and would come back again! :)

Read a lot of reviews and decided to try it out. The roast duck and roast pork are tasty. It's average compared to the roast duck standards in Hong Kong and Singapore. Alternative place to try the roast duck is goldmine restaurant, equally good. The staffs tend to rush you off. Do not expect to sit down and enjoy the... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Chinatown and as I was passing I popped in for a quick bite. The food was up to its usual good standard but the service was abysmal. I had to ask three times for my drink even though it wasn't busy, but the way the family of Italian tourists who were at... More

I visited the restaurant with my daughters - we were welcomed warmly and ushered to an upstairs table where we were the only Europeans. The array of Chinese people sat around us all seemed to be enjoying their food and their were dozens of delicious looking dishes being enjoyed. To keep things simple, we had the Peking Set Meal B...

We always used to go to a "competitor" when visiting Chinatown but after that restaurant was poor last time we decided to give four seasons a try. Underwhelmed is what we were, we walked in around 5.30pm so it was very quiet and we were shown to a tiny table for two close to the door where it was a... More

I didn't expect the Royal Treatment in a typical Chinatown restaurant, but this one was especially unfriendly. We were put in the basement, which was very unpleasant and has a very cold atmosphere. The waitress really could not care less about us. She forgot one of our orders as well. The food itself was pretty good, but the Roast Duck... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
