    Hands down one of my favorite places to eat in Chicago. The duck, the chicken, the wings, all very memorable. I bring out of towners here to create a lasting impression.

    Fantastic duck dinner. Order ahead. And if you don't get the duck I'd recommend the pan fried squid. Spicy and delicious.

    The duck truly is amazing and a total steal because the $40 dollar meal with soup, rice, and steamed buns is plenty for 4!

    So simple and so unbelievably good. The meat is flavorful and juicy, the skin is crisp, and the rice is the perfect vehicle to soak up the delicious juices. Read more

    It's been 15 years and it’s always the same: juicy duck with tender, wide, fresh noodles. Pair it with Chinese broccoli, oyster sauce, and barbecue pork, and you’ll eat like a king for $15. Read more

    The take-out counter is cool. Pro tip: Hon Kee is down the street and also very good

    If you want an entire duck without the full service just get a large order of it from the BBQ menu.

    The Peking duck was decent and very close to authentic. But the Chinese BBQs and other dishes were just ok. There are better choices in Chicago.

    You must order Peking duck in advance at this Uptown restaurant; not to make sure the restaurant has the dish, but to make sure it isn't sold out. Reservations, too, are a must. Read more

    A bustling Hong Kong diner. Lazy susans are stuffed with noodles, dumplings and steaming pots of tea. Live lobsters swim in tanks and whole animals hang in the window. Read more

    First time I went I thought it was amazing, don't visit it often it loses the special quality. Fairly good duck though, and with the sticky buns 😋
