Another Sydney classic, come after midnight and share a table with cab drivers or chefs from the best restaurants in Sydney. Service and decor dreadful, but the food is worth it. Great BBQ pork and peking duck.

We went there on the weekend hoping for some of the delicious duck. Couldn't enjoy the meal because of the table of noisy lager louts. We asked to be seated somewhere quiet but were told upstairs was shut. The big group should have been seated upstairs. There were certainly enough patrons and staff to warrant opening that section. Instead, everyone... More

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

The restaurant is located right in China Town Sydney. We order set menu for 2, which is enough for 3 people. Foods are delicious. Pekking duck, seafood, vegetables,..... all are great taste. Service is good as normal chinese restaurant. Price is very reasonable.

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

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.

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.
