If you like chinese cuisine on excellent level this is the place. Need to book in advance. A bit pricey unless you ar on All inclusive package.

During my recent stay at the LUX* Belle-Mare resort, I've eaten many times at the in-house Duck Laundry restaurant. LUX* Belle-Mare has more restaurants, but both "Amari by Vineet" and "Duck Laundry" are of exceptional quality. Great to have fine dining restaurants in a resort! Duck Laundry is offering contemporary-style Chinese dishes. The interior of the restaurant is very warm, cozy and stylish. Mr. Roopesh and his team provide excellent service and they do their utmost to make you feel at ease. The concept consists of "family style dining ", however the staff is happy to adapt this into starter - main course style if that is what you prefer. Dining at Duck Laundry is simply a feast! Many thanks to Atish and Joanna for their great service!

Loved the setting of the restaurant. Chinese food served there is one of the best i have had. Particularly liked the speciality, as the name goes, duck! Waiters were nice and helpful.

A bit of a treat for a Friday night ( given that the hotels Mixe restaurant/buffet is so good ) and lived up to expectations.
Whilst selections can come as they are prepared we opted for the more traditional manner. Starters of crispy pork ribs and foie gras were amazingly flavoured, well presented and had us wishing for more ( though not needed once we had finished our meal ). A half Peking duck came with plenty of accompaniments. A specially prepared crispy beef with chilli was also a highlight. Desserts were well presented (see picture of deconstructed wonton) but not all was well as the lemon pudding was stodgy and our table neighbours also not impressed with the rice pudding. The wine selected ran out after one bottle and the second choice was not available, took the edge of an otherwise good night, redeemed slightly by really friendly lead waiter and attentive staff.

Food is delicious. However because of the hype around this place and the difficulty getting a booking here, expectations will be sky high. and you will be disappointed.

The sqm size of the restaurant and size of the seating area is tiny and you will literally be sitting an arms length away from the next couple. It is pretty fun and cool with the right attitude , but if u value ur privacy and personal space don't even bother booking.

expect to pay around 4000MUR for a meal for 2 with drinks and dessert.

The small starter foods such as dumplings and dim sum are 10/10. Scrumptious. However the mains are hit and miss. They are all way above average , don't get me wrong, but honestly I have had better duck. Presentation is fancy and food plated like a designer art piece doesn't help coz u expect the taste to meet the presentation.
So for the mains it's a 8/10.
Desert was also presented enticingly but the taste was average 7/10.

I'd definitely recommend if you're staying at LUX to go for one night here. Dress up and have a night to remember.
