Peking Duck House
Posted by WestVillager on 01/01/2009
We were group of 8. Our total came to $420. Each put $53 for this meal. We had Duck specials.The duck was dry and bland. The hoisin sauce was watery and missing some flavor. The cucumber and scallions were not cut fine. The thin crepe was good but I prefer to eat with buns. Sauteed broccoli was okay but it was not Chinese broccoli. String beans were tasty. Eggplant with garlic sauce was okay. Fried Sliced Prawns was okay but the batter was too thick.

I went with a big group, so we had Banquet style. It was about an 8 course meal. Food Overload! From dumplings, to spring rolls, the signature duck, lemon shrimp, orange chicken, veggies, etc...I have never been so full in my life. The duck was tasty, the skin was not as crispy as I hoped. The service was great. We just sat down and they served dish after dish after dish. It was about $48/person, so a great value for the amount of food.

if you go here, go for lunch. they have a chili prawn dish (only on their lunch menu) that is GREAT. the prawns are huge and you get a lot of it. the price is reasonable for the lunch menu, at least. yes the service could use some improvement. we've had to ask numerous times for extra rice. we've ordered 3 of the same dish but received only 1 order of rice that can only fill 2 people. the chili prawn dish is the only reason we've gone back so many times, highly recommended.

I'm a regular at this restaurant. I've been coming here for duck since I can remember. Matter of fact I've been there twice this month. It's changed quite a bit since it moved two doors down... It's trendy w/o the attitude. I LOVE the chicken & pinenuts, pork dumplings, scallion pancakes, seaweed fish, grand marnier shrimp (the BEST!), general tso's chicken, stringbeans and of course the Peking Duck (hands down better than China)! I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

This place has some of the best duck I've ever had. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for authentic chinese food without having to go to a hole in the wall. place is well decorated and clean! I'll be there more for sure.

Don't be fooled by the name of this restaurant. They may specialize in the duck but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's good. First off they did not even get the hoisin sauce right. It tasted as if was watered down. The pancakes they serve with the duck may have been better suited for your bean burrito. It was thick and tough. If you prefer the steam buns with your duck then look elsewhere. And the duck: it lacked aroma and crispiness. The thing that turned my stomach the most was the bill at the end. This place does not contribute positively to Chinatown.
