“Inexpensive quality Chinese fare, with varied menu”
Review of The Duck King

Excellent choice of various Peking Duck cuts, with great dim sum menu and your choice of live seafood from the water tank. Moderately expensive. But for those with cholesterol or blood pressure problems, forget the high-cholesterol, high-salt duck and stick to the excellent dim sum offerings. Large restaurant ideal for groups or celebrations.

Tried Duck King at Kemang Village, Jakarta. Ordered various menus and almost every dish was tasty except the sapo which was overcooked.

You should try their roasted duck and fried rice. The resto itself was very cozy.

However the price level is rather high especially for locals, (around 10 EUR/person) and the service was slow.

In conclusion it is an excellent choice for family lunch. Very recommended.

As a regular diner with The Duck King I would expect the usual service, presentation and quality. But not this branch! Service staffs do not know what drinks are available - they kept coming back to say he drinks we order is out of stock or not available anymore (but menu not updated). They could have just told us that nothing is available except for tea!
We waited 30mins for the fried bee hoon and was not told had to wait. The dish presentation was poor. The restaurant has no acoustic and with a high ceiling, dining here is like dining is a canteen! It's echoing throughout! Not a place for business lunch or any family gathering!
Barely ten tables of customers and service is already poor. Better to go back to my usual branch at Setiabudi One.

Duck King restaurant has always been known for its quality. The taste for each food was very amazing. I didn't really like the service, waitress and several servants was not really helpful during the meal. But, the food itself has never gone wrong. Do not forget to try xiao-mai, their special prawn and crab porridge

It is one of the Duck King outlets well known for their roast duck. It is a well established chain of restaurants in Jakarta, so the bad service in this outlet is surprising.

The restaurant opened a few years back when the mall was new and service has been consistenly unresponsive, unfriendly, slow bordering on rude.

If in the mood for Duck King, I would suggest to try another location.
