“The one in Grand Indonesia has excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

When i want to eat good chinese food with reliable service, I go here.

I only go to the duck king in grand indonesia.

Excellent service. The staff is very attentive and discreet. Food is delivered on the correct order without even asking what is the correct order. Waiter wait until you finished a conversation before placing dish on your table, else they ruin your conversation flow. Dirty plate is changed with clean ones as soon as you think it needs to be changed. Before you need to flush food with tea, it's fully refilled so you don't need to ask and wait with discomfort on your throat.

Yes, i'm describing the apex of pampering service here, but that's why i keep coming back to this restaurant, the staff seem to do things from your perspective.

The only gripe is If only i can put a sign to stop the occasional waiter bringing large plates of appetisers to sell to your table.

“Excellent taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

We loved the chinese cuisine especially the roasted duck. Although expensive but it was worth the visit. Taste were excellent, so we didn't regret spending so much for food. Other menu were as excellent as the roasted duck. We came to several Duck King branches and never disappointed. Try it, you'll love it.

“Reliable quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Own of the few places I like to frequent because of their continued high quality. Service is good (sometimes open to an occasional reminder due to their popularity). Prices are reasonable.

Recommend: chicken feet, shredded chicken soup, spicy szechuan soup, braised tofu with enoki mushrooms, steamed lazy fish a la Thai or their variety of dim sum.

Good for family, friends, business or solo. And pragmatic couples.
