Serendipitous discovery wandering along Queen Street. The ambiance and environment was very nice, the staff were attentive. Having been to Beijing a number of times and had duck in a number of restaurants, when someone says they do 'great' Peking Duck it catches my eye.
Everything we had was excellent, the pecking duck was very very good, the beef, pork and chicken dishes were excellent an interesting surprise was the fried rice, it was lovely, order more not less, you will eat it.
Had a good bottle of NZ sav blanc too

The price was fairly high $256 for the four of us but the quality made it worth it.

We have so many restaurants in Melbourne that it has to be very good to get me back again. Will go out on a limb here :-)..... We will return!

If it was only the duck, I would give 10 star.

service? hum...not so sure.

waiting time can be as long as 45 MINS .

but the food quality are really really good.

one of the two best chinese restaurants in melbourne.

NON of the ones in chinatown can be comparable.


BUT BE AWARE, the food is not cheap at all. some people might question the value for money.

We were at a function in William street & wanted to eat Chinese afterwards. A group of 10 went to Quanjude on a Monday night. Great food, great services & happy to have a large group with no booking. Peking Duck the house speciality & did not disapoint. Prawns , beef & scollaps also wonderful. Will be back again.

how i found this place? i googled best duck in Melbourne. am a fan of peking duck so i thought why not give this place a try. the ambience of the place very oriental & classy. bookings must be done ahead & online!

the duck... was filling but not so crispy compared to other places that i've tried peking duck.
the waiters were very attentive!

Ordered:
- spicey whiteing (not ordered but served and because it was rolled at the edges with deep frying it looked a little like calamari entree we HAD ordered)

- 45 min later the calamari finally arrived....reminded twice (entree size).
Nice, spicy but quite tough.
The highlight was the PEKING DUCK.
Very tasty, not at all as oily as duck can normally be. QUANJADE specialises in a particular style of preparation making it a little drier (but not dry).
Ask for extra scallions and sauce early otherwise the staff wait and you scrimp when making your pancakes up early in the meal.
We then had the Sichuan, spicey prawns. Very tasty but the Thai sauce was a little over bearing for the prawn flavours.

Overall, the meal was very nice.
I had a half bottle of Henschke blend, which wasn't perfect with the food but I really wanted to try the wine!!!
Average service is the only thing that really let the experience down. The long wait between courses and the muck up of the order took the edge off.

As a general reminder, if you've been seated and given menus before others have arrived, general etiquette is to take your order first.
