I'll be ducked!

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

We had the Peking Duck and absolutely loved it! Great service, and exceptional food! Now my official favourite Chinese in Sydney! We will be back.

Someone I knew recommended BBQ King but I can't remember who! My parents were in town and we wanted to head to Darling Harbour and Chinatown for a bit of a wander around and bite to eat and fancied something tasty but not too pricey. As others have said the restaurant itself is nothing fancy at all but don't be... More

This restaurant may not look like much but the proof is in the pudding, or the Peking Duck in this case. The restaurant itself looks pretty dingy and the staff can be a little abrupt. But the food makes up for any shortcomings and it's BYO, which is a bonus in Sydney CBD. Would highly recommend the whole Peking Duck... More

At first I thought the prices here were on the high side. We just ordered their barbecue pork and crispy pork belly for our family of 5. When our orders arrived, we were surprised that they were more than enough for our family. They gave us free soup, tea and a large serving bowl of white rice. The food was... More

Seated and served with efficiency, complementary Chinese tea welcome on a hot summer afternoon. Ordered the duck, a tasty half duck and a huge plate of Pak Choy as a side dish, and steamed rice. Large portions, delicious duck, authentic Chinese decor and atmosphere. We had 4 waiters, one brought the tea, one took the order, one brought the food,... More
