Our duck was well over cooked. One or two nice pieces but generally dry (we were the first to be served) but did see the ducks that were coming out towards the end looked better. Customer service was poor!!! You could only order duck. No entree, no other dishes were allowed. When asked several times our request was declined with a “no”. No other explanation. Not sure why they even have a menu…..rather rude! Would I go again? Probably not.

Delicious duck. Absolutely delightful crepes to wrap the duck flesh and awesome duck noodles. More veg + bigger slice of tofu would be nice in the duck soup, but the flavour is beautiful as it is.

Best place to have Peking Duck. The duck soup and bean sprouts noodles are delicious too.

Best peking duck in Melbourne. 5 stars the first time I've dined here, few years ago when the legend, Simon was still alive. My second visit was a bit disappointing. I've also heard then and there that the owner has passed on. 4 stars : I've noticed the duck served this time had no fat attached (maybe removed?) which was the second best part imo, after the shattingly crisp skin.. which wasn't as crispy as the first time around. I can also tell by the colour of the skin wasn't as dark as the first time. I was estatic taking my mates here but seeing their reaction like it's "meh" made me feel like I hyped it up too much. Throughout the night, I kept saying, noo trust me guys, normally it's 100x better.. Regardless, it's still the best peking duck and i will return and support them when I'm craving duck. After all, they specialise in it :)

When you are looking for a cosy restaurant, dimmed light, staff that checks on you every now and then, a place where the chef explains the specials, calming music....this is not the place to go. However, if you just look for great peking duck, Simon Peiking Duck (sic), is your place. I have eaten peking duck in China, Europe and the US. Tried to make it myself dozens of times. Getting the skin crisp like paper (whithout cooking the skin separately) is an art, and this place is like a museum. The skin shattered like glass, the meat was a little on the dry side, pancakes were home made, sauce had a good flavour not too salty. The price is reasonable for Melbourne. This is not roast duck, it is authentic Peking Duck. For sure you can get better in China.....but we are in Melbourne, not China. In my experience, there are 4 predictors of great authentic Chinese food 1) lots of noise, 2)packed with Chinese customers, 3)functional bright light, 4) functional service-not overly polite, just functional. SPD, has it all. Really, think about it, if it was not great (authentic food), the Chinees would not come. The so called "left over duck" which they take away, comes back to you in your noodle dish and soup. This is the authentic way. Peking duck is a feast , where all the parts of the duck are used. You are there to eat Peking duck, and great Peking duck is what you get. I will be back. Thanks

Cheap and tasty. Meals are very affordable. 3% Credit card surcharge is completely excessive though.

You know what you’re going to get when you come to Simon’s. The master may have left us, but his team honours his memory with a cracking meal and great service. They focus on one thing, and they do it exceptionally well. Go, eat, be happy.

Beauriful use of duck served 3 ways. You purchase a duck. The first course is peking duck carved after you order. The carcase is then strpped of meat which is served with noodles and the final course is duck broth soup with remnant meat. Superb!

What a bizarre night. I cannot recommend this place! I can see why there has been so many conflicting reviews. Our whole table agreed, we genuinely felt that "they were as unimpressed with us as we are with them". In other words, we did not feel welcome there. As soon as we sat down: * It was a rushed experience, almost as though they didn't want you to order anything else but the duck. * Every drink order was met with an eye roll. * The 1 menu on our table was snatched away before we could consider other items. We had to get another one off another table so the vegetarian with us could get something for her! It was confusing to say the least. They do things their way and that's it! * Inconsiderate and unacommodating. * The Peking Duck and the pancakes are quite good. The skin shattered like glass and the meat is juicy. The stir fry duck and the soup were lazy after thoughts in my opinion. That is it. The service, the ambience and all other dishes were very much an after thought. I would recommend you go to a restaurant who allow you to order other items, not just the duck. The duck did NOT make up for the other sub par food and rude staff. I'm sad that I spent my hard earned money on such horrible place.

We ordered Peking duck option 1. According to menu this should have included 1. Duck, pancakes,cucumber,onion,sauce 2. Stir fried bean shoot with duck meat 3. Duck bone soup with bean curd. Duck was on the dry side. We had to ask for soup. Never even got the stir fried bean shoot. Also the duck gets carved in main dining area. I watched several being done and every time all the carcases got taken away with still a lot of meat on them. You pay for the whole duck but you don't get all of it. Quality and value for money very poor. Won't be going back.
