Good Place for Yum Cha or Tim Sum

One of the Lok Thian restaurant franchises for Yum Cha or Chinese food (usually the roast duck with rice hence the name of the restaurant) cook to order place. Popular among the locals in Kuching. The food quality for me so far over the last few years is good. Occasionally you might get one or... read more

The name of the establishment was very impressive but the food quality was below par. We went there for dinner (4 pax) and we found that the food was really oilly and was nothing compared to its namesake. Seriously I would not go back there again. I can eat much better food in Kuching anytime & anywhere. Cheers

As for Kuching standard, this place stands a head above the rest. Imperial Duck fall under the umbrella of Lok Thian, an old name in Kuching hospitality world. Therefore, no matter how mediocre the offering is, it won't never be subpar anyhow. Imperial Duck's layout is akin to Western standard where the kitchen is see-through and that staff in their...

Crowded as the duck in all sorts of combos is well prepared with the mango duck being a stand out. worth the taxi ride out from town with smart pricing and an extensive menu with not one dish disappointing.freindly service and great juices and tea.

The place is popular for its roast duck (obviously from its name) but the other.dishes are very good too. Try their asparagus with prawns. ..yummy Its very popular so you have to go early. Dont think they allow for reservations...locals go there so you can assured the food is good Good authentic chinese food...

The service is horrible. Ignorant employees that ignores customers when we asked for orders. And the table is not properly cleaned as we found lots of soy sauce stains.

Food is about average. But what makes the experience here the pits is the service. Staff here will attend to you when they feel like it or they conveniently cannot see you. No smiles. No courtesy. Seems to be a trend here. If you are lucky, you get served by a non Chinese waiter who is both friendly and fast.... More

I found a fly in my soup (I ordered ckn rice) and I told... More

the food turned out to be so-so. And i find it ridiculous they have no porridge at 8.30pm! when the shop's name means king of duck, it's hard not to put the duck under microscope!!
