Fantastic food but the service let down a little bit sadly. The waiters were great very attentive but the manager was arrogant - refused us to take some food away. Something could be worked on in the future.

Celebrated my birthday here and had the famous duck and dim sum. Everything was great and food was delicious. Wish the prices were cheaper as it’s quite steep. Will definitely return for more duck!

We were so excited to try this venue after having heard many positive reviews, however all food had lack of good flavour, all sauce were far too sweet, huge disappointment.
Wine was lovely but many good quality/reasonable wine were sold out (red wine). Service and atmosphere were good so it’s really shame. We won’t go back.... we paid approx £290 for 2 people.

Only one very poor element that made me see ref- Suggested 15% service added to bill. Considering the already very high prices - scandalous!
Very awkward with client present to ask for it to be amended.

The venue is cool, the food is delicious if a bit pricey but the service is indifferent. No smiles, no engagement. It's almost like you're invconveniencing them - like it's midnight, you're the last customers and they just want to go home. But it was half full and 8pm. So if you want a private dinner with no interruptions and just good food, it works for that!

Maybe because its was a Tuesday night but it was pretty quiet and seems to have a lot of tables in a small space and the tables are small and when you have a few dishes if your sharing you run out of space, got to say great cocktail at the bar, glass of champagne i had could of been a bit colder and also the bottle of white wine the same, out of the 5 dishes we had the peking duck was good and a pork dish but the rest didn’t stay in my mind. Will maybe give it a go again on a Friday/ Saturday night.

First time trying this restaurant (I wasn’t aware of its existence until a few weeks ago) - it’s not cheap, that’s for sure but gosh, the food is top quality.

Second time here and food outstanding. Quite pricey but worth it. Atmosphere buzzy but you can hear your companions without having to shout. Very sophisticated decor. Hope to return soon.

It was a Sunday lunchtime - I was taking my parents out to say A huge thank you and Duddles has been highly recommended for amazing dim sum and food on a Sunday. The atmosphere was severely lacking. The service was awful. We had to ask two or three times for everything and when the waiters did come they did not seem happy. We were constantly told we were ordering too much which resulted in not enough duck for us. And some really lacklustre rice to go with it. We had the distinct impression they were trying to get rid of us quickly. And half way through our dim sum we were told the kitchen was closing so if we wanted anything else we had to order then - when I asked for the menu to see the waiter said ‘you’ve got duck coming why do you need it’. I was really disappointed - a really special occasion wasted on this restaurant.

As always, amazing food. It always is! This has to be the best Chinese food in London, surely. Love the room as well and staff are great. Much, much better than the Chinese restaurant just around the corner at The Shard.

Duddell's serves well made Chinese food but it is far far away from the price they charge for it. The dim sum are fine, but extremely average and similar to what I'd expect to find in a regular neighborhood place. The mains are good, but not more than that. Definitely not worth the high prices they charge.

I had such high expectations of this place due to the hype around it from food bloggers and it's two Michelin star status. However I arrived to find the place quite dull and the food very boring. I was also there with a friend and I found that several times waiters interrupted our conversation. It is fine to announce that there is food but to ask continuously if "we're ok" or if the "food is ok" is a bit excessive. Also found that the range of dim sum available in the Sunday menu is disappointing, and I have had better dim sum at my regular place in China Town. I understand that this is elevated Chinese food, however I found the quality quite low. I expected so much from this restaurant but left disappointed with no desire to return.

Delicious Peking duck in two courses. I would also definitely recommend the beef tenderloin. The Service was excellent, the location special and cool.
