Forget about having any of the "service" that you're used to anywhere in the UK. This place is about the food and only about it. The crispy and the roasted duck are both excellent (although the latter is a little oily). You won't regret making the trip here.

The roast duck is moist and juicy and not greasy and can't think of a better place to have roast duck. It was pretty good value- got half duck, half soy sauce chicken and two vegetable dishes for £55. In relation to service, it's really not worse than a typical chinese restaurant that is trying to maximize the turnover of... More

Found out about this restaurant through a friend. Wanted to go in 2012, but it was closed as it's Christmas. So I (just) went again and finally tried the famous roast duck! It's delicious! A few things to note though: 1. The portion is a typical Chinese food in western countries. It's huge! 2. It's (very) oily, but it's not... More

The food is good. The rice is expensive. The service is rude & charmless. Even if the restaurant isn't busy they will turf you out when they like. There is nothing redeeming about the interior: you are literally shuved in. I believe this is the sister restaurant of one with the same name in Bayswater. The food is nearly as... More

I'm aware that most people say very good things about their duck. The restaurant even posts in its window, an article written by someone who declares their duck the "best roast duck in the world". I'm just going to be brutally honest here: the duck is not aromatic enough, the skin is too soggy, and the sauce is too sweet.... More

I don't really like duck that much, so it came as a surprise that I really liked the duck that my dining companions ordered when we went to Four Seasons. It did not taste "fatty" at all and was very good. We also had the tofu (Japanese style) and again, it was very good. The eggplant with mince pork and... More

I can quite understand how the service here could be less than impressive when it's particularly busy. We were lucky enough to be there a little later, about 3pm, and it was relatively quiet, maybe two thirds full, and so the service was fine. The food was excellent, simply put. We had a set meal, with hot and sour soup... More

For aperson who doesn't really like duck, the duck here tasted delicious! The meat is soft and flavourful. The other dishes (vegetables, tofu, fried rice) though not excellent, were pretty good too.

Visited this restaurant after an afternoon trip to the theatre. The service was appalling, very rude waiters. My soup for starters was plonked down whilst I was eating my main ( I thought they had forgotten it!). The main was cold, the famous duck was greasy and very fatty. The waiter then cleared, or attempted to clear, our table as... More
