Be careful about “special offers”
The Duck King advertised for three days (13-15 April) a roast duck for 150000 instead of 308000 IDR (small print min purchase before tax 500.000 IDR ). Our family chose this advertisement and our bill before tax was 650.000 IDR ( with tax we paid 765000). However for the duck they included the regular price. When told that there was a mistake I was informed that the bill has to be 500.000 IDR without the duck to get the promotion! So please be careful when you choose special offers at the Duck King!

For my personal taste the restaurant is too crowded and noisy. On our visit the noise was annoying. I guess it is a popular venue. However on the plus side all of the food we ordered, a wide range from duck through seafood and vegetables, was well prepared from fresh quality ingredients. The staff though obviously very busy made every effort to remain friendly and helpful; they certainly kept our orders moving. Will definitely go again but will try to choose a quieter time.

Great family resto
For the appetizer, we ordered these following dim sum: Pangsit udang mayonaise this is a wonton with shrimp and mayonaise filling. The shrimp were fresh and crunchy, with just enough mayonaise to not overpower it. The fried skin were very exquisite, it was yellow-golden tinted, with light yet crumbly texture. It's definitely not just another usual hot water dough skin. Lumpia udang keju, it has a golden crunchy skin with generous chopped shrimp filling, the cheese was not the emphasize, but just a back up to make the shrimp more savoury. The shape were long and tubular, like astor snack. Hakau. It's the usual chinese dim sum basic fare, and it was done well. The skin is translucent with slight chewiness, it really wasnt soft soggy overcooked like many other less reputable place. The shrimp was good, as always. Salted egg steamed pao. It is a bamboo charcoal colored pao with rich runny salted egg yolk filling. The pao is moist and tender, while the filling is smooth and savoury. Overall, i find the dim sum very good and of a great quality. For the meal, we ordered: Mun tahu jamur. The usual homemade egg tofu custard, it is okay. Mie goreng siram udang. The crispy noodle were thin, smooth, and golden, a bit like mie titi makasar, i find the noodle texture rather good. For the sauce, it feature stir fried thin sliced tenderloin, with usual soy sauce flavoured cornstarch thickened broth. It was okay. Roast duck. It was okay, it isn't very crispy though but it suits rice eater. i think the peking duck (skin only served with rice pancake) would be crisper.
