Duck & Rice - Sydney
Great food. A little pricey. Noise from live singer a bit irratating
Appalling experience. Had requested a nice table for special occasion, arrived and had to hunt down staff to find our table then were shown to a very basic outdoor table immediately next to a bar with extremely loud music and 3 meters from a live band. When we asked to be moved inside we were told by the manger there were no tables but the band were “about to wrap up”. Asked for sparkling water and received still, requested the signature margarita and were told it wasn’t available, drinks we ordered instead took 20 minutes to arrive. Were asked 3 times in the space of 5 minutes if we were ready to order even though drinks hadn’t even arrived. 5 minutes later it became clear the band was in fact just getting started so we paid for drinks and left. Menu looked amazing but we will never experience it as the service and ambience was atrocious. Be a good restaurant or be a good bar, stop trying to be both.
Service was great, ambiance was amazing.
We ordered duck, sai pen chicken, bok choi, crab and scallop fried rice and the chef selection of dumplings. The duck, fried rice and dumplings were a 10 out 10 however the chicken and bok choi were a bit of a let down. There was a lot of ginger on the chicken dish which was enjoyable and the bok choi was very bland and the sauce didnt really suit the dish.
Duck and Rice is a beautiful new venue - the food is great. However, one of the pork dumplings we ordered was completely raw. On the upside - the dumplings here are obviously handmade rather than frozen.
Excellent quality food and good service
Amazing food - innovative dumplings - try porcini mushrooms or bug meat, duck, char siu *(roast pork) and MaPo Tofu. Impeccable service ( shoutout to Frederick) elegant decor and ambience
Food was nice, though extremely pricey for what it is. Table service was very slow and forgetful, brought 5 dumplings when 4 was requested, forgot drinks, forgot rice. Lunch took over an hour and the two of us just ordered dumplings, duck and rice, a beer and a coke which cost $97.
If you want duck and rice, head to Haymarket - quicker, cheaper and just as tasty.
The best duck pancakes in town! Great ambience and excellent service.
Undoubtedly one of the best yum cha I have eaten in Sydney!! A must visit for all yum cha lovers!
Watch out Mr Wongs, you've got a new contender in the market. Fabulous food and great service. Well done.
Hi JamesR, Thank you so much for the great review, we're so happy you enjoyed your dining experience! We hope to see you again soon
Loved this restaurant! The duck it amazing! The fried eggplant is to die for! The surprise fried ice cream for my birthday, was a yummy surprise! Can’t wait to go there again!
Very friendly staff who knew the menu well and offered recommendations. Great space and ambience, especially on a warm night. The food was delicious!
Thanks for the great review! We're really happy you enjoyed everything and can't wait to have you back soon.
Delicious Yum Cha with a twist - dumplings were all tasty and well made with a number of options, Crispy Skin Chicken was out of this world amazing. Great wine list and cocktail and mocktail list that needs more visits to try them all.
Someone should have explained to us how the yum cha deal or menu worked. The selections of dim sum was very limited and overpriced
Thoroughly enjoyed, the outside area will be lovely when it’s open. Our duck pancakes, chicken ribs & prawn dish were very tasty. We will be back.
Dumplings full of flavour and well presented, spacious city rooftop views, friendly service, live music. Great place for socialising after work.
We were there on a busy Friday night - even seated inside, the noise level was pretty high. Service was friendly, and adequate. The wine we chose had a cork, which seemed to present a problem - It took ten minutes for the girl to reappear with it! We had empty glasses for a while on two occasions. One of the waitresses was a bit 'spilly', as my friend put it! I somehow managed to score a few drops of wine in my shoe at one stage!
Having said all of that, the meal was lovely, and there are many other things on the menu that I need to return to try.
We had the $50 lunch banquet and food was really tasty and delicious except for the roast/barbecue pork which was quite dry. We are definitely coming back to try the Peking duck and crab and scallop friend rice.
Great service and food. Suitable for 2 people or a large group. One of my fave new places in Sydney.
Absolutely great ambience, especially if you are seated in the terrace.
Great food, great service
The food was excellent. Great care and attention to detail was put into each dish. I also loved the decor and ambiance of the restaurant, tastefully done!
such a great dining environment, spacious, beautifully renovated place. Service was really good too. Food was nice and quickly served. we will definitely come back!
We enjoyed our lunch and the restaurant was accomodating as we had arrived an hour late due to the marathon road closures. Food was good and service outstanding. Looking forward to returning.
good service, environment and location , good for dating and business, food is a little salty , overall satisfactory
Lovely location, staff, food, music, drinks.....what a fantasic way to spend Sunday lunch with someone special. We will certainly be back for after work drinks, can't wait to see what those lamps outside look like at night :-)
Thanks everyone. Allan.
Yum cha was amazing, good variety and prompt service
We went here for lunch and everything was good except the timing of the food. Since we really only have an hour it was just too long of a wait for some items which soured the experience slightly. Ambiance was awesome!
Fabulous addition to Sydney dining.
All food provided as part of the very reasonably priced Banquet for 2 was excellent and in generous quantities.
Great service from all staff and particularly Patty.
A limited, but more than adequate wine list with several wines available by the glass or carafe
Thoroughly recommended for (slight modern) Cantonese food.
Happy to recommend and will be back
Great food. Banquet for 2 was excellent. Portions were good size. In house ginger beer washed it down perfectly! Will return
Food was just slow today for some reason. We have 4 of the banquets.
This is hard. I’ve been here three times. The food is very good and the tap wine option is great. Last Friday it was nothing short of a debacle. We had a 12.30 booking. We ordered our food and wine as soon as they brought our beers as we sensed things were not going to plan. We didn’t get mains till almost 2.30. I wish I could be more positive but It’s completely unsuccessful especially for a CBD restaurant. Not sure if I would go again.
The food was pretty average for the price. Duck plank cakes cold and the sweat and spur totally over powered the barramundi.
had higher but unmet expectations from food; esp dim sums by famous chef
It’s decor is stylish and dishes are well made and really high quality!
Restaurant is annoyingly hidden in shopping complex. Hard to get to.
Dumplings are the best choice
Loved this restaurant. Beautiful deccor and the food was gorgeous. Had the $50pp banquet menu and was more than enough food - so great value for money and every dish we all really enjoyed. Also enjoyed the wine 'on tap'.
Saltwater Duck and mushroom fried dumplings to die for!
Great service and even better food. Will be back for sure.
Great service, great design and great bar. a The food is very good but expensive for what it is, similar food at the food court below is half price, I guess you pay for the ambience.
