Great food, especially the Peking duck and the dim sum. Scallop rice was also amazing. The room is spectacular, but the service is still a bit hit and miss.

Really bad, had lobster noodle which lobster was undercooked, also the Foie Gras toast I cannot see or taste any Foie Gras inside it. Bad service, when told the waiter about it, he did not know what to do! Get some training done boy! Not recommend

Food was good. But service was horrible considering there were only 5 tables at the 14:30 sitting. We asked for the menu several times, our order was forgotten and the manager was very very rude in his language when closing out the orders

It was supposed to be a birthday brunch, too

Kitchen close to early, I ordered a plate and after 15 minutes they said me that it was to complicate to prepare...and that I can’t order nothing more because the kitchen is close!

Food was exceptional but the attentiveness of service was what made it special. This was my second visit and my last was over a year ago - everything was faultless on both occasions.

Though the food and environment is perfect, we encountered an unfortunate incident. We were put at a table by the bar and the bartender accidentally spilled a drink on my friend...

An amazing dining experience. I had read other reviews that say the restaurant's not cheap, and I agree. But you really do get what you pay for in this case. The food is outstanding and the service we experienced was the best I've ever had at a restaurant - all of the staff were so friendly and really keen to ensure that we were happy. I highly recommend the duck as well as the caramelised banana pudding (it's not what you expect). Overall, this is the restaurant to choose if you like Chinese food and you're looking for somewhere very special to dine out.

It was my Birthday so we were looking forward to dine at duddells. The waiters were friendly and very kind actually. The time was Short until we got our food. 2 of the maincourses were absolutely cold But they supposed to be hot. When they served it again they just put it in the microwave... that was very sad. But my dessert with a candle on top was free so Overall it was a very good evening !

Really good food - excellent take on chinese food but tasted clean and fresh. Great wine list.

Service was a little slow - ended up getting starters before our drinks but that would be my only complaint.

Excellent and knowledgeable service however the food was not exceptional and it was too pricey for the quality. We had a table on the ground floor; the ground floor area is nice however the first floor seems too cold and with no character. I am not sure if I would go back or recommend it to a friend.

Enjoyable meal and the duck in particular was excellent. I was surprised that the asparagus main didn’t include any spears (where did they put them if not in our dish?) and the chairs are singularly the most uncomfortable I’ve ever sat in.

Disappointing experience having had high expectations. The two of us were directed upstairs ("we have a lovely table for you") to the balcony overlooking the ground floor dining area. The table was ridiculously small and no amount of regular fussing from the waiters to remove just finished plates could hide this.The much-vaunted Peking duck was unexceptional and no better than any half decent Chinese in central London and at the price (£45 for half) should have been. The peppered spicy black cod and Martell black pepper beef on the other hand were very good. The restaurant was reasonably busy for a Tuesday but lacked atmosphere. All in all disappointing and no way worth the expense.

Great restaurant, food was lovely (if slightly overpriced) although I would say the service was maybe too attentive - we sometimes felt slightly harassed as there was always someone there, doing something. It may have been due to it not being that busy however

It was a fabulous dining experience. I could not fault the service, everyone was so attentive and friendly. The food was delicious and so were the cocktails. Fantastic venue and decor, great ambience. Rather expensive but we knew that before dining there, however, would certainly recommend if you want a quirky place to celebrate an occasion.
