The Crispy Duck is an award winning pan-asian restaurant offering an upmarket dining experience combining flavours from across Asia. Set in the heart of the city, The Crispy Duck has been a local favourite since its launch in 2011. Inspired by the melting pot of cultures across Asia, The Crispy Duck draws from comforting Malaysian family classics like Beef Rendang to beautifully handcrafted Japanese Sushi.

Sourcing our ingredients as close to home as possible and using authentic wok-fired and charcoal roasting techniques helps our dishes capture the flavours and aromas of authentic Asian cooking. Vibrant colours, crisp and fresh flavours underpin the philosophy of our cooking. Set in an elegant but simple dining room equipped with a fully stocked bar, we invite you to sample our range of Asian beers and extensive wine selection. An independent family-run business since our inception, The Crispy Duck offers a welcoming and inventive new take on pan-asian cuisine.

The Tom yum soup was the best I have ever tasted. Incredible flavours every mouthful. I then tried three spice Mayalisian chicken and my partner tried the crispy fried beef. Both very different and delicious flavours and tastes. New to us both, but wonderful. Along with Singapore style vercelli noodles, it was a wonderful evening with delightful food. Highly recommended

It was a family member's birthday and they played Happy Birthday and brought him out a cake, which was thoughtful and such a lovely, personal touch. It was our first visit but definitely won't be the last. Happy to recommend.

Was busy throughout but didn’t have to wait too long for meals. We had a nice evening. If anything I was a tiny bit disappointed in the food. Starters were a bit sloppy and greasy (tofu and squid). Wife’s vegetable noodle dish had no real veg in it. My main course was great though. Staff were excellent. Overall I would go back but wouldn’t rush back.

The staff were very efficient and nice. The food was amazing. I had Singapore satay to start followed by beef redang and Singapore fried and red bean ice cream for dessert. It was fabulous.

We were very disappointed with the crispy aromatic duck starter as this came ready wrapped in a pancake with just about no hoi sin sauce so it was very bland. Probably won’t return as tasted better food elsewhere.

Tried the red bean ice cream for first time and now an addict! Lovely venue and brilliant staff so glad to have moved within walking distance.

A friendly place, but was weirdly dead on a Thursday night. The food is a real mix across Asian styles, which is OK, but I think it could perhaps make the menu smaller and focus more. Was pretty tasty, but not memorable.

The food was outstanding would highly recommend. The service was second to none the staff were very warm and friendly. They brought out a cake and sang happy birthday which was fabulous a lovely surprise didn’t know they were going to do that. I did mention to the gentleman on the phone I would like a table for 9 but could only book of 6 on open table. He was great said it was no problem at all We even had a room just for us which was great. Especially for other diners who didn’t have to listen to our noise. Would definitely return to this restaurant. Thank you to the owner and his team.
