Good service

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... read more

After many years I finally managed to go to Au Canard Pekinois and I have to say... amazing! Great food, high quality ingredients, good service, top wine. Au Canard Pekinois is indeed a little more expensive compared to your average chinese around the corner, but the quality is absolutely worth it. 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...

This restaurant is owned by Chinese from Hong Kong. The service is top notch and the Beijing Duck menu so good that I found it better than in Beijing it self. Not easy to find a parking spot so I recommend you walk or take a bus or taxi.

No matter where one goes, they would definitely miss their home food. This restaurant offers one of the best canard laqué and dim sum in suisse romandie!! Take the menu and it is more than enough :D

They have really good service and great environment. Their chinese food already changed the taste to fit Switzerland's people, not actually like chinese food in China and Taiwan, but it is delicious, even not like traditional one. Actually every chinese restaurant in Switzerland I had ever tried have the same result, but still being a great plase if you just... More
