The simplest menu ever! Half duck, quarter duck or duck thigh. Oh I am wrong, she served rice noodles as well 😝 In fact the taste was not too bad, but just too much MSG had been added. Both my wife and I had to take a lot of water afterward. In terms of the price of duck, its price... More

It is a shock to find that this famous restaurant known for goose meat offers so few choices on the menu: two types of noodle, two sizes of cut for goose meat and one kind of drink (coke)! And the service is next to nothing. The only saving grace is the goose meat. Still decent after all these years.

Our last visit was over 3 years ago. Newly renovated, cleaner and more organised. We ordered half a goose (there are five of us) and each one of us ordered a rice noodle. The quality of the rice noodle was not as good as before and a bit oily but taste good. Price gone up and taste not as good... More

First of all, when you come to this eatery, please be warned it is not a full-menu and full-service establishment; this place is about plates of duck and goose and small accompanying bowls of noodles or mifen (and I recommend the latter), and that's it. The menu is about four lines on wood boards hanging on the wall. If you... More

As terrible as the first experience. Come back this place because of a friend insisted to visit.... Well, and she is now totally agree with my opinion on the food quality after the one n the only experience (second for me) she will ever have. Wonder why so many customers? Bad taste?

Special food at Xiemenden. This resttaulant serves only duck and twe kinds of noodle. But it is firsttime for us to have such dericious duck. It seems chicken as singapole chickenrice but more salty and good fat. Price is a bit expensive. Leg 200TWD 1/4 600-700TWD 1/2 1200TWD For couple 1/4 and twe noodles are enough. Usually long queue but... More

A goose restaurant even though it's brand proclaims it is a duck restaurant. Given the family's penchant for goose (seeing how we can't consume them in singapore) we held high hopes for a good meal. Alas, our expectations were too high and we were left disappointed by the fatty and rubbery goose meat we ate. Unfortunately our threshold is measured... More

The duck was just okay, nothing exciting about it. Staffs were rude, they looked like they were frustrated with their job or they did not get paid enough. This was one of the most expensive duck I've ever tried, it's like you pay Mercedes price for a Volkswagen, definitely not worth it. Not going back and definitely not recommending it... More

The stew goose is nothing to shout about. The servings are over proportionate, 1/4 goose, half goose or 1 whole goose. They never consider small groups of 2 or 3 people and its not cheap for a quarter goose. The waiter serving has no patience despite my turning up way after lunch and there is no crowd, they just seems... More

I really like the taste of their goose and vermicelli even though I'm sure there are some amount of MSG in there. There's no menu but a couple choices written on the wall including your choice of noodle or vermicelli and amount you want to spend for goose.
