    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.

    Kevin Li · June 25

    If you happen to be in Chicago. This place is to die for. Their Crispy Roast Pork and Peking Duck roasted to perfection. · June 16

    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

    Half bbq duck if your a hungry dude -- half duck if you're only kind of hungry (seriously)

    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 😋

    If you get there late they probably won't have any more duck...

    Duck or you're not doing it right. They also have a good selection of other dishes – I recommend the eggplant, spicy string beans, and hot and sour soup.

  • George W.

    They should make their items order-able from my smart phone by adding them to the app "appay biz". That way, I can order ahead using "appay"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    George Wilkson · May 10, 2013
