We were in a group of 40-50 people to celebrate a 10 year wedding anniversary and we had a nice private room. However, the waiters designated to take care of us kept blasting annoying music even after the host and hostess repeatedly asked them to turn the music down, so much for conversation. I'm a firm believer that if you... More

The food arrives quickly in the table, and that's a really positive thing if you arrive hungry. :) The food is tasty, basic chinese food. The staff is openly curious towards western travellers and that's kind of cute. Good take-away system!

The place is always filled with local people and even my from the airlines. The duck is very good, hence where they get the name from. If you go away hungry it is your own fault.

We have a nice gathering and reunion of old school classmates at Golden Duck (Saya San). Although the place is a very nice hall air cond and crowded at meal times but the ambience is so peaceful. Also private rooms were provided upon request. Golden Duck Restaurants have locations Yangon and Mandalay. early booking for table is advised. Nice place... More

One of the best Chinese restaurants that I have eaten in! If a restaurant is chock full of locals, it is a good indication that you are in for a treat. They have an A/C hall, outside seating and private rooms. we could only get seating outside because the restaurants was so full. Superb snake head fish soup with fa... More

I dont eat duck but everything else if good enough to return to this place. The food is smack in between Thai and Chinese food, exactly how i liked it. Smokers are treated equally here. Do inform the receptionist though.

Best duck. Better than London or even the famous Beijing duck. The nearest competitor is Hong Kong roast goose. But Golden duck is cheaper than Hong Kong's. The other chinese dishes are good too.

The location is wonderful, but the staff need training for the prices they are charging. A waiter was rubbing dirty dishes with his fingers before setting them on our table to tidy them up, but we caught him as he wasn't discreet. If this is normal behaviour, and it appeared to be so, then management needs to really improve training... More

This is a big restaurant, traditional Chinese style with large round tables and on the night I visited, Chinese New Year, it was noisy and pumping. Their car park was full and people were waiting to get in. The three of us were lucky to secure a table and it took some time for our meal to be served, however... More

Our Burmese hosts took us to this restaurant . Every dish served was truly excellent - we love Chinese food and this was amongst the best we had ever eaten. We were in a private room so cannot comment on the service. Highly recommended.
