“Superb taste of chinese peking duck dishes”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This restaurant is the best to serve peking duck.Tasty yummy flavour and crunchy dry skin of fried duck is super yummy..And barbeque ketchup for the duck would make you to ask for more.Always come to this restaurant at least once a month.

“The name says it best”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

One of the best Chinese cuisine in Jakarta, in the price range. The food is good, the service is also good. But being a very popular resto, there's usually a long waiting list if you don't book seats in advance. The roast duck is excellent. They can proudly wear the name "Duck King".

“Good Dim Sum, Good Food”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We like to eat in this restaurant whenever we go to Pondok Indah Mal 2 or Grand Indonesia. The staffs are polite and response fast when we ask for anything, but not too friendly though. We like to have dim sum for brunch, our favorite are Mini Bebek (mini pastry with duck bbq filling) and Lumpia Udang Keju (shrimp & cheese spring roll).
If you want to have lunch or dinner, we would recommend Ayam Goreng Cabe Rawit dan Lada (Fried Chicken with Chili Padi and Pepper) and Mun Tahu Shimeji (Tofu with Shimeji Mushroom). The Hainan Rice is also a must try. It cooked to taste perfectly.
On weekdays it would be nice hang around and chat with family or friend after finish the meal. On weekends the restaurant usually very crowded and a little bit noisy, we don't like to stay long after we finish the food.

“a must try!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

I go to this place several times. I found the cuisine delicious, though a bit expensive for the locals. The roasted duck tastes good, the durian pie is so smooth, the vegetables is so fresh.
