Fodor's Review

You can find better basic Chinese food elsewhere in town, but for duck and pork, barbecue-loving Sydneysiders know that this is the place to come. The poultry hanging in the window are the only decor at this small Chinatown staple, where the food is so fresh you can almost hear it clucking—make sure you sample the duck pancakes. Barbecued pork is the other featured dish, and the suckling pig is especially delicious. It's open from 11 am until late at night, when the

average customers are large groups of mates sprawled at the Formica tables feeding their drunken munchies, or Chinatown chefs kicking back after a day in the kitchen. The service can be a little brusque, but it's all part of the low-budget charm.

BBQ King Review

Yes, it is cheap and the decor is cheap, too. Good Chinese BBQ food with excellent variety, so if you don't like the tacky decor, take a BBQ duck home instead. A great place to take toddlers and young children not yet skilled in the fine dining etiquette. This is a place to eat honest food, relax and not worry about the bill!
