Reviewing the “crispy duck menu”. The duck makes one sign the words ‘poor effort’, it’s not shredded in front of you, no skin, almost nothing on the plate and very dry. The pancakes were cold and had not been steamed. Additionally the main dishes that were to be shared were of a lesser quality to what one would expect of edible food, and the portions were too small. Egg fried rice was barely fried, and completely unseasoned.
We came into this place because everything else was booked on a Friday evening. The fact that it had seating should have on a Friday should have been a dead giveaway. This was the worst place I’ve eaten at since I’ve been born - food was genuinely inedible until I drenched it with soy sauce and pepper. Do not go here, unless you wanna eat steamed rice and microwaves seafood on a plate. Nothing was freshly cooked. Avoid with a barge pole.
Food was absolutely awful and service was worse. At one point the waitress placed a beef dish on our table, my friend took a month full, she then removed the dish and put it on another table. They automatically added 10% to the bill as I was told all the restaurants add it, the waitress was rude when I questioned it. Paid it anyway and got out as quickly as I could.
A great place to visit in London, easily accessed by Leicester Square tube station. I love how easy it is to navigate as the streets are pedestrian only. So many restaurants to choose from - a fabulous choice of dim sum from 12 noon onwards.
The most unfriendly stuff and service, very bad experience. The crispy duck is very dry, looks poor, the beef tastes old and dry too. We ordered 3 persons menu came with only two set of saurce, can't compare with real Peking Duck. Will never go again!
