A nice restaurant

This is a nice restaurant in a good location in Kowloon. We went there specifically for the Peking duck that this place is known for. It was good. The duck is served in slices first and then the remaining duck is served in soup. There is a small charge for the soup but the soup was really yummy. We... read more

We eat at the Spring Deer every time we are in Hong Kong and it has to have the Best Peking Duck in the World. Its location is at the bottom end of Mody Road, Kowloon, up an old stair case, but in side its fantastic. It has to be good because you have to book days in advance and... More

Memorable first lunch at Spring Deer - a truly authentic HK restaurant complete with 70s ambiance. Even the waiters and managers seemed to have been there for some time. Service is personal and warm. Our host has been to this place a number of times and it isn't difficult to understand why. The Peking Duck was crispy and tasty together... More

If you enjoy Peking Duck, you MUST visit this restaurant. Best to make a local book a reservation for your. Minimum two weeks before your visit. Prepare for a "local" feel as not many tourists come to this restaurant.

I think you either get the retro appeal or you don't! Either way, the food was very good and the duck, of course, outstanding.

Decor would have been horrible even when new in about 1972. In dire need of refurbishment. Exceedingly cramped and always busy. I have no idea why as the food is just so so. The famous duck is incredibly greasy and one of the worst I've had in Hong Kong. Other dishes are just average to sub par. There are much... More

Came here with friends since one of them loves peking duck. I must say, this place was delicious. the Peking duck was great, the veggies with garlic was amazing and the banana dessert was awesome. We had Xia long bao too, but it wasn't as good as i hoped. Overall it was delicious and satisfying

In spite of the packed house I got the impression that the staff was just going through their paces, and really wished that everybody would go home. The signature Peking Duck was good, but presented with no imagination. The lighting is bright and the room has the ambience of an airport lounge. This place is in serious need of a... More
