Very cozy Chinese themed restaurant. They actually have a real fireplace to roast the duck. They cut up the duck in front of you.

Went here with a group. Service was excellent and great food to match. Fortunately, we had the menu, which meant we knew how to pace ourselves.

In a hidden location around the corner from the Legendale hotel, can be tricky to find! Set in a traditional Hutong style house, the restaurant's specialty appeared to be the Peking duck. There was however also a giant woodfire oven that almost smelt like they...More
