Wonderful duck dinner with all of the trimmings. Don’t miss the scallop dim sum (upcharge). Though eating at a communal table seemed awkward initially, it was a unique experience.

We had a wonderful dinner at Decoy. It is a small restaurant and you need to be prepared sitting close to other guests. We had our dinner at the bar. The service is super friendly and we felt very comfortable. Now to the food, the most important part of a dinner: it was amazing! Dumplings and other Chinese choices all tasted very delicious. The chef really understands his job. We definitely will come here again whenever being around.

I made a reservation here to try the duck after having read some good reviews about it, and we were looking forward to this meal for quite some time. But we ended up leaving disappointed.

After we were seated and had reviewed the menu, we attempted to order the prix-fixe duck dinner, only to be told that it was no longer available, with very little explanation from the server. Needless to say, we were quite disappoited, being that this was the sole reason we had chosen to reserve and dine at this restaurant.

To make things worse, when we asked to speak to the manager to see what the issue was, we were treated like we were the ones in the wrong, and the response was pretty much "it is what it is, so deal with it."

Obviously we will not be returning, and I strongly suggest that if you are coming here for the Duck, that you call in advance to confirm that it will in fact, be available, before you end up suffering the same outcome.

Had a great time. Staff created a fun atmosphere. The food is delicious but I have to admit it is probably too much. There were 3 of us and we walked out with a lot of leftovers!

Went to Decoy with my wife, brother and sister-in-law, but ended up seated in RedFarm instead. We had the prix fixe duck dinner which was fabulous.

The meal starts with an assortment of pickles, fruit, veggies and fish crisps. Then you have a choice of four starters, two mains, a side - and, oh yeah - The Duck!

We had pastrami triangle with a spicy mustard, pan fried pork buns, oxtail dumplings and moonlit shrimp. Every one was delicious.

The duck arrived with plum sauce, cranberry sauce and peanut sauce - the skin was crispy an meat cooked perfectly. Best I’ve had outside of Beijing!

We finished off with the pork toro and emperors chicken.

Limited wine list but designed to match the cuisine. Service was friendly and fast, but we did not feel rushed
