“Fast and furious food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013 via mobile

Dining with my husband we were surprised at the popularity of this restaurant on a weeknight. Our wait for a table was approx 10minutes and once seated service was very fast. Orders taken fast and food served very fast. The food was great, the prices were good - great value for money. However, this is not the place to come if you are after some privacy or time to linger over a meal. Diners are in and out of the restaurant pretty fast. A good place to dine for a quick meal perhaps on the way elsewhere...

“Best roast duck in Perth, absolutely delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2013

I have been here over 6 times over two years and the fact that I keep going back must speak volumes.

I have tasted many roast duck meals across Perth and this place has the best roast duck hands down; you haven't lived until you taste their duck. (And no I am not affiliated with them in any way, this is a very independent review)

Their duck has an extra touch that other duck places lack, it is very very delicious. The duck skin is nice and crispy and just oooohh la la! Make sure that they give you the 2 main sauces that come standard with the duck, they taste great. if you also like vegetables in Asian sauces ask for their Sambal Kang Kong, for some reason it is not listed on the menu but its tastes so good.

Each time I have gone there there is always a queue, sometimes long sometimes short which says a lot about how eager people are to eat there. Go there and enjoy their roast duck.

“Overrated by Perth community”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013 via mobile

Had Peking duck , dried egg noodle with roast duck and sour soup. They are highly praised for their roast duck in Perth with long que of customers in and out constantly. my verdict, it is an ok roast duck, dried egg noodle was boiled in the water too long leaving the noodle way over cooked and not well strained through. Hot sour soup had too much star anis taste to it overpowered by old bamboo stem plus fishy smell of old prawn. It's an ok place to dine but don't over expect too much

“Absolutely Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

No other Restaurant comes close to the GFRDHouse for Peking Duck.
Whether eating there or taking home ... one just wants to go back again and again for more RDpancaks. Do not let the front of shop put you off - or even the line of people waiting....
Pure Duck perfection.

“The holy grail of Chinese roast duck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

This is a Northbridge/Chinatown institution. Don't be intimidated by the hanging ducks in the window, the meat here is tasty! We ordered the Peking Duck Pancake which comes in a serve of 5, and the soft shell crab. Highly recommend both dishes. Scrumptious! The restaurant itself is very casual, yet lively with the bustle of keen diners. Expect a wait and wear your stretchy pants.
