This is a great Chinese restaurant located on the Kingston Foreshore, however the menu is very limited. We found it to be a little expensive but the food was amazing so we did not mind the cost. The waitress and waiter were just so friendly and helpful and were quite happy to alter the menu to our taste. Beautiful decor... More

This is our first visit to try this Restaurant after reading a lot about it. It's situated at a fairly quiet resident area with just another Italian Restaurant next to it and a few offices. The restaurant is nicely decorated with a Asian influence. We found the food is mix with Asian influences and Peking duck is ordinary. The wine... More

Interesting restaurant that offers good food in a comfortable environment. Situated in the trendy Kingston Foreshore it is easy to access and a reasonable night out. Food and drinks is well presented and service is appropriate. Clearly a feature is the card tricks performed by the waiter. They are clever but it does leave you wondering why so many tricks....

I love Thai food and fine dining and Wild Duck does them so well. My boyfriend and I wandered the foreshore for dinner thinking we'd be spoiled for choice, however we were quite uninspired until we came across this place. So much finesse and it was so refreshing to not see the same old Thai dishes I see on takeaway... More

Went here for a birthday, staff are excellent, very friendly and accommodating, I actually cannot praise them more. But then the seating area, it seems that the private rooms take up too much space so everything is very cramped, there are some fixed seating (booth but a nicer set up) that was our table and I know I am a...

I dined here with friends, expecting good food for a high price. The good food was certainly forthcoming but when the bill I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. I guess this is what they call Asian fusion: Balmain bug dumpling, lamb shank Sang Choy Bao for an entrée followed by a selection of some of the most delicious dishes I... More

This resteraunt pleasantly surprised me with a beautiful atmosphere and peaceful decoration. It oozed class when I walked in. The food was typical "chinese" resteraunt food, but not prepared in the typical way. It is definitely a finer dining experience than your average asian resteraunt. The staff were eager to assist and clear and were friendly. My only gripe is... More

My husband and I dined at Wild Duck for my husband's birthday. We had the "Wild Meal" for two We started with Balmain Bug and Wagyu Beef dumplings. Each came with its own perfectly matched dressing - our mouths were literally dancing. Mains were fantastic, the Xiang Su Duck was crispy on the outside and soft and unctuous on the... More
