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

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

Au Canard Pékinois is a wonderful place to go for a special occasion. I took my fiancée here for dinner and it did not dissapoint! The title says it all...Au Canard Pékinois is hands down the best Chinese restaurant in Lausanne. The service is wonderful, the food is made to perfection (nice size proportions, too), and ambience off the charts... More

This place has a lovely ambiance, enhanced by the classy decorations(enclosed aquarium(fish pond?) in the aisle tiles. The service was faultless and they had a good lunch time menu special. The presentation of the food was also lovely. However, I felt that my meal was too greasy. My duck left a thick paste of grease on the plate and the... More

My favourite dishes: The whole Peking Duck, absolutely the... More

Perfect: great, kind and efficient staff. Food is tasty, delicious, far better than any restaurant of that kind in the area. More than this, you feel welcome , and honored, contrary to what we often experienced in other chines restaurants looking at you as the customer, and nothing more...

Everything is exceptional in this restaurant! The place is nice, the food is super excellent. The only thing is that some waiter speak nothing but chinese... which appears to be a problem when you think you have ordered something...
