Pecking Duck

Please visit this place at the JHB World Trade Center. Best Peking duck outside of mainland China that I have ever tasted. Crispy Chicken from Hong Kong is disappointing because it's dry. The Shanghai dim sum is awesome as very few places actually know how to make it. This is the only place that... read more

I went there once for a dinner, and my experience was very good. Food was very tasty, waiter was extremely nice, and I didn't wait long for the food. Definitely worth to go!

Restaurant management spoilt our lunch yesterday. My wife, daughter and I travelled from kyalami for a late lunch at 14h00 yesterday. We ordered several dishes from the menu and were pleased with the food up until the noddles. Our lady waitress was attentive and overall a great waitress. The last dish we had was a chicken and peanut noodle dish.... More

We went for a return visit with and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was slow, but friendly. We ordered lavender and lemon tea and ended up buying more to take home as well. The food was simply delicious and I can recommend the dumplings. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and were more than happy with the cost. I look... More

The mains were took back and the starter served. When the mains came I had to ask for the rice which I ordered but was... More

We bought a groupon voucher on a whim and decided to try their famous Dim Sum experience. To begin setting foot into the restaurant I was immediately taken back to my time in Hong Kong. Really impressed by the menu and was put into a state of excitement to find shirmp balls. The dumplings were devine, so much that we... More

My husband brought me here for dinner and the arrangements for flowers (🌹)made with Linda. Wellington was our waiter and he did very well tonight. The food was superb, much better than other places, so don't be shy to get with the experience, don't come with a negative mind.

Worst service I have experienced in Sandton. Unresponsive surly waiters, average food and apathetic management... Don't waste your time...

Found thanks to Trip Advisors ( Near me) feature as a nearby walk to restaurant Gwefey (read why the name at the venue) turned couture to be a real revelation. Stunning decor great service and a real variety of not so often seen dishes. Good wine list no red lanterns or pinky plonk music. A trustworthy venue to impress a... More

Went to Gwefey for Mothers Day as previously enjoyed a good experience. Fans and extractors in restaurant were not working and place was smokey with many other patrons complaining. Waiters confused as to who was serving us, so long wait for drinks. Ordered starters and they came very late each in 10 min intervals!! Finally just cancelled my starter when... More
