This is a great place to have all the Chinese-style BBQ meats. The portions are generous and you will need to be very, very hungry to be able to finish one dish by yourself.

Been here a number of times with friends. You get solid Chinese bbq and roasted meats very tasty but will leave you feeling a bit average afterwards as they love their MSG. Pick of the dishes for me would have to be soya chicken

I had eaten in this place several times when I worked in Sydney with its rickety old creaky stairs and authentic Chinese ambiance. I was so pleased to return recently from Queensland to find their food is still soooo good. Their duck really is to die for. But what also keeps me coming back is their consistency across their menu......consistently... More

Now this is the place to eat Duck or Pork - fantastic food. Easy to find - just look for all of the meat hanging in the window. Very good value and first class genuine food

Love this joint excellent meals all round.But the Duck is amazing beautiful crispy skin and the most tender moist and succulent meat. Very basic looking place but don't be put off. This is one of the best Asian restaurants in Sydney, Very reasonably priced and guaranteed you will not be disappointed.

Thank goodness the façade of BBQ King in Goulburn St is ordinary to say the least. This will ensure that it remains a "secret" and we can always get a table. If you like Peking Duck then this place is the penultimate. I cannot say anything else lest the secret gets out.

Don't be turned off by the facade. I have been going to this place for as long as I can remember. Get the BBQ Pork, Roast Pork and Roast Duck. This is their forte.

The food at the Chinese restaurant was so good that we went back a second time during our three day visit! When you go, HAVE THE DUCK! OMG!! They have the absolute best duck I've EVER had. Now, I dream about it! The staff was excellent too. Put it on your TO Do list when visiting Sydney.

We ate at the BBQ King Chinese restaurant on our first night in Sydney (13Jan2015) as suggested by our hotel's concierge. The BBQ King is probably more a local's family Chinese restaurant. We received a very good meal, along with very good service. I can recommend the roast duck and BBQ pork combination dish. I would definitely recommend BBQ King... More
