Peking Duck House
Posted by Chen on 01/02/2007
My friends and I went there for Xmas day lunch. We waited about 30 mins to get a table which was not too bad. The service was average, thought friendly in general. There were three of us so, we had Pecking duck special. That came with choice of soup, assorted appetizers, The duck, two entrees and each is $35. Food was great and in good portion. Somehow, I totally agree with the previous post about how they trap people. Yes, we did have duck breast wraps, but where are the rest? In the menu, it said the whole duck, but the fact is you only get the duck breast. And each of us only had two wraps. For spending 35 dollars, it's not worth.

Food is great , the servers are cute and you get your moneys' worth . The shrimp marnier and volcano steak are a must have! Get there early cause theres a long line.

The service was not good. No one in our party got served at the same time. One person's soup was served 20 minutes before everyone elses and when the entrees were brought out, one person's was missing for another 20 minutes. The waitstaff was quite rude and came up with many different excuses even accusing us of not having placed the order, even though it was in their computer as ordered. There was not even any offer to compensate us or make amends.

Diners, especially non-Mandarin speakers, beware of the Chinatown location. The Peking duck you are served is at least less than HALF of what you are supposed to get (but are paying full price for). I’m a 2nd generation ABC who’s had the luxury of enjoying Peking duck countless times with my immigrant parents, and have always been able to extract least 16-20 fat, rolled crepes with a quart-sized container of sumptuous duck meat leftovers to take home from any of the Peking duck I've had at different places (for the same price); this place served enough to make maybe 6-8 skinny rolled crepes. Instead of being served with beautiful scallion florets, I wondered if the sad, shredded, floss-like strands were scraps from nearby stores closing up for the evening, or just the cleaner bits from the kitchen’s scrap cuttings. The remaining non-skinned duck portion disappears from your table and reappears in its entrees (like "duck soup" so you can pay twice for the same food). The "duck dinner entrees" are overcooked leftovers poorly masked in salted sauces. The snowpeas served were very much like confetti from a cross-cutting paper shredder - small, flat, and barely noticeable. Hot appetizers: scallion pancakes were only slightly larger than coasters (but are usually the size of dinner plates). Skip the soups - mediocre quality whose poor value is matched by its pitiful double-tea cup quantity. The prawns are okay, but a bit on the small size. This is Szechuan cuisine, which is hot & spicy. Don't be afraid to ask for the non-spicy version if you are skeptical that the hot & spicy is masking food that the kitchen wants to get rid of. Also, beware that non-asterisked items are often sitting in hot & spicy sauces, so read carefully and ASK before you order.

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner last night and we were blown away. We ordered 1 whole peking duck and an order of mixed vegetables. Everything was delicous-the duck was crispy and the vegetables were not covered in the typical brown sauce you find in most chinese restaurants. I am going to start coming here at least once a week to eat.

It was our friend's farewell party. I missed him then and now I miss the duck we savored. For namesake, duck is this restaurant specialty and it did not betray the name. Thinly sliced, juicy, rich flavored duck wrap was by far the best I ever tasted. Unfortunately I had to leave in the middle of the dinner for other engagement. Thank Heaven the duck was served right after the appetizer so I did not miss out. Waiters obviously tried hard but communication was not always without hitch but that was a minor inconvenience. It was not crowded in early evening dinner time.

We went on a tuesday night and had to wait for almost 45 well invested minutes! We had the duck dinner and every bit of it was delicious! My family and i have travelled extensively to asia and we all agreed that everything was delicatedly cooked, expertly flavoured and excellently presented. Everything from the duck broth to the scallops, duck rolls and dumplings was excellent. Dying to go back to Ny just to eat there!
