As Hobart locals who have lived in many Australian capital cities, the one dining experience we've missed since moving to Tassie is the lack of good Chinese restaurants serving full Peking Duck. At either end of the price & service scale for Chinese Restaurants you have Mee Wah and Written on Tea - both also in Sandy Bay, two of our favourites for Asian cuisine, but neither do peking duck as a proper 2-course meal. Enter The Bund, which I can only review on the basis of having eaten their Peking Duck on 3 occasions, and nothing else off menu.
The Bund does Peking Duck in the traditional full sense, the first course as 8 pancakes carved at your table by the chef. Extra credit for Bund making their own pancakes, and the waitress compiles your pancakes for you - bit of a shame diners don't get to control quantity of each ingredient, especially the hoisin sauce, but it is nice to have the work done for you. Second course is offered as option when you order for either san choy bau (lettuce cups with minced duck meat and vegetables) or noodles (shredded duck). As with 99% of restaurants that serve Peking Duck, yes you are left wondering/doubting if the whole animal has been utilised for your meal, and a sneaking suspicion some meat forms part of another dish for fellow diners, but the quality of Peking Duck at Bund is very good overall, the service is friendly and efficient.
