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...

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 two below par meals. Service... More

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

Went there around 7.30pm and most meat were sold out. Would appreciate if the waiter could tell us what is avail on the menu cause it's annoying when I wanted something and he goes 'tak ada' (no more). Portion size is okay (filling enough). Guess what? 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!!

Good selection of food and soup at reasonable prices. Roast duck a specialty and very nice. Also nice selection of dumplings.

I've tasted much better duck rice or BBQ pork at stalls or foodcourts at much lower price. The taste was OK and the place is much cleaner (with air conditining). If you are looking for some real local food, this is not reccommended. You might want to try the open air market or foodcourts which offers much more varieties.

If you have had duck before in Semenanjung, then you taste the duck and chicken in this restaurant, you will know that it is a complete waste of time and money. Nothing else good to write about. The tables are small, aircon not strong, so-so service. I believe there there more restaurants in Kuching that serves better duck dishes. Certainly... More

Took family here, very crowded but it simply means that the food is delish! I recommend trying the duck & chicken with the vegetables...so tasty & crunchy. They also have sesame balls & deep fried taro roots.
