If you want traditional peking duck and not very picky on how the place looks, this place is for you. It is a hole-in-wall that looks more like a cafeteria than a restaurant. The place is noisy and the customers were a combination of locals and foreigners. First, make reservations. I saw a lot of people come in and wait... More

Been here many times over the years with family and guests from abroad. The duck is the main draw. Never disappointed. Plenty of other delicious things on the menu too. Service is great and attentive. Although it is well known and mentioned in the guide books now, it still feels a little off the track and like you are discovering... More

I am a Peking Duck lover and have even made it in my home (felt the duck was my friend after that long ordeal). So, even though Hong Kong and Peking are decidedly different places, I decided this delicious duck was on the menu during this visit. Trip Advisor and other research offered several possible restaurants and I was happy... More

Rocked up on Saturday lunchtime and we're told we were very lucky to get in without a reservation. Enjoyed every minute. Staff were great and really engaged with the kids. Food and service were second to none. The duck was magic too!

Listed in the Lonely Planet as having the best duck in HK. We were not disappointed the restaurant was full of Chinese families many with children - always a good sign. Most were celebrating a birthday or other anniversary - again a good sign. The service appears at times a bit chaotic; but it is very attentive and our waiters... More

Great traditional northern Chinese food in Hong Kong. According to our waiter, it's been open since 1969. I don't think much about the decor has changed since then. It looks a bit like a nursing home cafeteria from the 70s. But holy hell the food is good. The waiters are a classy bunch, and the service is impeccable. Had Peking... More

I visited with my wife and infant son last month. Like many a traveller, we were there for the much-vaunted duck. I was not disappointed. Other observations: - It's quite a simple little local restaurant. Lots of locals - most of them not eating duck so there must be worthwhile things to explore elsewhere on the menu. - I actually...

This is a place that I have been eating at throughout the years whenever I visit Hong Kong. It is the kind of place that unless you know about it you probably would not find it or be inclined to go into it. Firstly it is on the second floor of a rather unattractive building and it has a small... More

Before visiting Hong Kong we had read some rave reviews about the crispy duck at this long established Chinese restaurant along with several complaints about the service recceived. As we LOVE crispy duck and the place was only a 10 minute stroll from our hotel we decided to book a table for our last night in Hong Kong. On arriving... More

We read all the reviews and I thought we would be going to an old fashioned old style Chinese restaurant with bones spit on the floor and generally messy. It is actually a lovely white table cloth restaurant with an excellent northern Chinese restaurant. The duck is not chopped and is excellent. The two if us ate a whole duck,... More
