Yes, there is lots of duck to be had here in this absolute gem of an eatery. Fortunately it is also walking distance from where we live. The Peking duck is as good as you can get it anywhere here in Melbourne. They also do a tea smoked duck which is superb. The rest of the food is equally outstanding and one of my favourite dishes is the pork belly. The dumplings are exquisite and the king po prawns are a favourite with our friends whenever we have dined there with them.
Jimmy also advises us what is on special each time we go there and the specials are really worth trying.
A sign of a good Asian restaurant is the number of Asians that are actually customers and this one is full of Asians so that really does say something about it.
It is a regular of our and we thoroughly reccommend it to anyone wanting excellent Chinese food with a bit of a difference.

This is another hidden gem in Melbourne's eastern suburbs - and the waiting list to get in reflects the quality of the food. The Peking duck is delicious, with the finest parchment of pancakes and crispy duck (although a little more duck with the crispy skin wold be make it perfect).
The hand made noodlesw with the rest of the duck melt in your mouth and other dishes such as the rusty nails and wonderful too. We have not had a bad dish here on several visits - and it is always worth paying attention to the specials too - we have had some delicious dishes from this verbal list too.
Definitely worth many happy returns!
