Fancy a Peking duck banquet?
Groupon often have excellent deals for lunches and/or dinners, and I bought this one due to my extreme love of Peking Duck!
It was a "Peking Duck Banquet for two people", and the first course is always very thin Asian style pancakes with crispy duck skin, shallots, cucumbers and Hoi Sin sauce inside. On this occasion this was served as the entree with one large pancake each.

It was professionally presented, and had a very ingenious flower made of carrots and white radish, held together with toothpicks.

The next course was duck San Choy Bow, which was excellent, with small pieces of duck resting in lettuce leaves, with a delicious sauce.
The last part of this banquet was a rather large noodle dish with bits of duck and chicken in it, and a very tasty duck meat dish with vegetables and a hint of chilli.
Last course of banquet
The place itself was near several fast food outlets, and was extremely well decorated and it is one of the dying race of Asian restaurants that has tablecloths, and good table service with water being offered all the time. There were several fish tanks with crabs, lobsters, and assorted fish, and a very attractive lit up wall display.
Open for lunch and dinner Tuesday to Sunday, with plenty of parking outside, the menu is very extensive and has many interesting dishes to offer. They accept all credit cards and also cater for larger parties of people.
