Midtown and Chinatown locations serve classic Chinese and specialty Peking duck in modern, dimly lit atmosphere crowded by loyal locals.
  • Authentic Chinese cuisine
  • Friendly & attentive staff
  • Oven roasted duck dishes
At Peking Duck, we prepare well in advance. Firstly air is pumped into the duck to stretch and loosen the skin, then boiling water is repeatedly spread over the bird, which is then carefully dried, the dried skin is rubbed all over with maltose, and the duck is then roasted in a hot oven for a period of time until the meat is tender and the skin crispy. Then the duck is served with house-made pancakes, green scallions, fresh cucumbers and special hoisin sauce.Private rooms available for Christmas parties.

Best Meal Ever.......Again

My wife, youngest son, and myself just got into NY today and we had already planned on having dinner at the Peking Duck House........I ate there for the first time several years ago when it was called Bamboo Garden. I have ate there several times since then and it never lets us down. I can't imagine a better meal than Peking Duck at the Peking Duck House. The Sake is not bad either......always good and always hot!... view more

Food is great, but service...well....

Food...well, the duck is great, hands down! We usually go there just to have ducks. Only better duck I had was actually in the Palace (in Beijing, that is), where they used a thin steamed bun rather than a wrap.\r\n\r\nHowever, Peking Duck House gets one star only due to their phone attitude. \r\n\r\nFor the past couple years, when we tried to get a duck or two for Thanksgiving of Christmas, we were told that they... view more

Busy, fun atmosphere

Friendly, attentive service. \r\n\r\nI'm not a fan of duck so I really can't comment on the specialty of the house- that's what everyone else in the rooms seemed to order :)\r\n\r\nHowever, the HUGE prawns and broccoli were BA.

Great food and good times! A must go if you like chinese

Been a customer for a few years running now and I would say if i had time to take a ride downtown I would definitely do so. Midtown is almost as good though. Had the grand marnier shrimp which are my favorite , as well as the seaweed fish which were like chinese fish sticks in a seaweed batter. Mmm. The peking lamb chops are a must try. Too bad it took me 2 years to figure that one out. All in all a very good experie... view more

Don't Even Think About It...

Couldn't believe the service here could be as bad as some of the prior reviews made it out to be, but it was. Absolutely some of the WORST service I have ever experienced. I would never go back again. Not even any alcohol available to help you ignore the inhospitable, unhelpful and downright mean staff - to a man, they act like the fact that you're dining there makes them either bored or angry. While our waiter was c... view more

Excellent Food

My boyfriend and were on our way from Boston to Florida and made a stop in NY city. We went to Chinatown and asked a Chinese lady on the street where we can have a good meal. She gave us an address on Mott St., and we headed there. To our surprise, the nice lady was there! she was the owner. She sent to our table free appetizers, the meal was terrific and we were very pleased of their service. Food was delicious, I s... view more

I go to this restaurant very often to enjoy all the meals. IT WAS DELICIOUS!!! The food and service was terrific! I read some previous comments about not being able to take the duck home but if you ask a waiter to pack the rest of the duck up for you, they will. I would definitely come back to this restaurant again and invite people. The restaurant had no tacky accessories on them so i would give them a plus on that... view more

Extremely bad service, ok food....don't bother.

$50 for a duck is fine. But subject to abuse, arrogance, dissmisive service as a cutomer!! There is no way I go back here. There are other places for good Peking ducks in several Chinatowns in NYC (in Manhattan -- not Peking Duck House since they have same horrible services, Flushing Queens, 8th Ave Brooklyn, and Ave U Brooklyn)\r\n\r\ndon't bother and move on for good ducks and good service.

Long-Time Customer Deeply Disappointed at Deplorable Service

I have been a customer of Peking Duck House since 1994 and service has always been grudging and no-nonsense but adequate. Therefore, I do not have high expectations in terms of service. But, the service has turned extremely poor. At today's meal, I asked for four glasses of ice water. It took 10 minutes and I got two glasses of ice water. When my peking duck came, I had to ask for the rice, which should come with... view more
