A very good place ...

This restaurant has an oriental decoration where you walk on water and fishes when you step in ;-) Employees are nice and concerned about customers wellbeing. Food is very good. Basilic chicken, honey/sesame seeds lamb and pack choi were the best. Unfortunately Peking Duck was a bit too dry in my... read more

We came for the special Peking Duck Menu consisting of a soup, spring roll, raviolis, Chinese salad followed by duck and pancakes. Everything was very delicate and tasty. A desert completed the menu. Excellent quality in the food, presentation and service. The décor in this restaurant is totally different to the décor in most other Chinese restaurants and just for... More

Before going to this restaurant I checked the various review here on tripadvisor. Some were complaining about the service. I can say, at least for my experience, that they were wrong. The restaurant has a very nice interior, it has a very refine atmosphere. I was very impress by the nice aquarium at the entrance, with a little waterfall and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my visit here. Service was friendly and welcoming and they spoke English, which, sorry, should be the language spoken in every restaurant! Anyway had a mixture of dim sum, spring rolls, lacquered ribs to start and then half a crispy duck. All delicious. Duck was great as were its accompaniments but also the service was... More

A very nice looking restaurant with good quality and tasty dishes. Very extensive menu and the dim sum is particularly authentic. A most enjoyable evening out with helpful staff in attendance.

I go there often for lunch and I really love there thai basilic chicken! Maybe quantity is not so big compared to other Chinese in town but the taste is incomparable. Also, stuff is very friendly and baby friendly as well.

Au Canard Pekinois is and has been for a long time my favorite place in Lausanne! The food is simply incredible, and the service is simply amazing. I've been going there for many years and the waiters always recognize me and welcome me and it just feels like home. You must try the crispy beef or the basil chicken: my... More

It was a great hit with the family and the kids enjoyed it as well. The restaurant is absolutely gorgeous. The service was amazing and all of the staff were very friendly. The food was to die for, my only complaint was that it took a while for the food to arrive. Overall it was an amazing experience.

I've been there many times for the last couple of years and I was never disappointed. The atmosphere of the restaurant is always quiet and suits every occasion, whether you go there as a couple, with friends or with your family. The place is rather expensive (for student standards anyway, about 70frs per person) but you won't regret once you... More
