“Good food, good service and excellent price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

If there is one place I really love dining at, it is Tak Kee's. I have been a customer for over a decade and while the chefs have come and gone, the food has been consistently yummy. The duck is to die for while the laksa is excellent. Not too much on the menu I haven't tried and they all tasted good. The only let down are the squalid bathroom facilities but I can overlook that in comparison to the tucker.

“Mouthwatering Pecking Duck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

I'm sort of a regular customer to Tak Kee. They serve the best pecking duck in town. the crispy golden skin and succulent and spiceful duck meat will stay in your memory! I have tried other duck joints in Dickson area, but Tak Kee is the one for me..
The won ton & BBQ pork noodles is also really yummy!

The good side: wide variety of menus, number one pecking duck!, free chinese tea served straight away.

The downside: not a fancy restaurant, just a regular diner joint.

“Consistently good value cheap eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

We often stop there on our way back from Sydney. Always reliable for a good, cheap feed. Their wonton soups are always good value.
Very good Roast duck and pork for take away.

“mmmm Duck and Pork”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Roast Duck, Roast Pork what more could you ask for. This place most reflects the asian cafes that you get in Malaysia and Singapore. A little grotty, a little plasticky, but if you order the pork or duck from the window you won't be disappointed
