“Very good lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

We ordered spring rolls, wonton soup, shrimp with cashews, and pork with snow peas. Everything was served piping hot! We were quite impressed. Service was excellent. The restaurant is very clean and welcoming. There was just enough of a lunch crowd mid-week so as not to hold anything up. I would recommend and return. Try to find on street parking as the lot across the street can be a bit pricey.

“Good roast duck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We had fried dumplings, roast duck, stir-fried watercress, and a mixed seafood-vegetable dish. There was far too much for two people! Everything was very good, apart from the dumplings, which were so huge that they were impossible to pick up with chopsticks.

“Impeccable duck.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This is a no frills food stall in the Reading Terminal Market. There are plastic bowls, plastic utensils, and servers who can't explain the menu very well. Despite this, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys peking duck. The duck is amazing. The skin is as crispy as you could ask for with the most incredibly moist meat. I had this as well as a noodle soup, which has very deep flavourful broth.
