I went to this restaurant with my tour group for dinner. It is a very large place with clean and beautiful restrooms which was a pleasure. The food is good but quite oily and salty. The service is very good.

Just stay away is our advice. It's very popular with the locals and perhaps you could find better options on the menu but our food was largely inedible (the roast duck was fatty and lukeware, the crispy might be better and other dishes greasy and/or boney), but staff are very friendly and eager...

Do not let the Donald Duck statue at the front of the restaurant put you off visiting this restaurant. It is not at all kitsch, nor is it fancy or upon market nor is it's ambience anything other than 1970's business like. When we visited the place was full of business men with a sprinkling of couples and families all... More

Located on the opposite side to the palace entrance, this place offers MM and Chinese food in reasonable quality. Waiters speak hardly any wird of English, but the menue is translated. Big restaurant and therefore always a free table. For MM definitely one of the better places to eat.

Golden Duck is a must in Mandalay for years: a chinese restaurant serving a mixt of burmese and chinese food near the Moat. Big change: it is now located in a modern building , the Palace, in the developing suburb of Mandalay. The place is huge with two floors and two main rooms , private rooms, a real chinese touch....

Had tried a variety of dishes from poultry to seafood, bean curd and vegetables and soup. The food is generally tasty. Restaurant is huge and spacious. Surrounding is clean. Worth the try.

We went here and were advised this was "the place" to dine at. We were lucky and got a window seat with a good view. The food was nothing special and the service was almost non existent. The duck was extremely fatty although the sauced were great.

This place was recommended by our hotel and we were pretty disappointed. The food and service were just okay. We were a little disappointed at the lack of drink selections. The portions were good sized though for the price. I think that had this been the first restaurant I had eaten at in Mandalay I would've like it a little... More
