Restaurant description

Brought to you by Alan Yau, whose other restaurants include Yauatcha and Hakkasan, The Duck and Rice mixes classic British pub style and authentic Chinese recipes. This trendy hideaway features a striking, geometric-stained glass frontage, and a unique digital jukebox that allows diners to pick their own playlist.

Bursting with Chinese favourites, The Duck and Rice menu spans from sharing-style dim sum plates, to time-honoured rice and noodle dishes. Specials change monthly, while championed signature dishes include jasmine-smoked pork ribs, curried crab, and Cantonese lobster. Desserts at Duck and Rice in Soho include peanut butter ice cream, or decadent chocolate pudding.

An impressive bar stock pays tribute to the West End’s neighbouring pubs, with cask ales, local beers, and Pilsner served from a shimmering copper tank on offer. Along with a selective world wine list, artisan gin & tonics and unique ‘beer cocktail’ concoctions are mixed at the bar.

A trendy Chinese restaurant-cum-pub from one of London’s most famous restaurateurs, find The Duck and Rice 7 minutes’ walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.

    Food was good overall, although our server forgot to put one of our dishes in the system so we waited for a long time and had to remind him. We also genuinely felt a lack of chicken in the Kung Pao Chicken, dish consisted mainly of cashews and onions so were left a bit disappointed at the value.

    AMAZING Quality food and quality service

    We were disappointed with food and service. The service was extremely slow. Not enough staff! Most of the evening we couldn’t talk as we were constantly trying to get the attention of any staff member that would look up or come towards our seating area. When they did come they were polite. We waited quite a while when we sat down before anyone came to us. Then we ordered, the starters came out after so long that once it arrived it seemed like it had been sitting for a while as it was all cold (room temperature). We didn’t even bother complaining as we couldn’t get anyone’s attention. When we were done with the starters, again we waited so long before anyone came to clear the plates that we didn’t even bother to order mains (only a Hakka paneer and dessert at the same time) as we didn’t know how long it would take to arrive so we knew wouldn’t have time to eat a main properly. By the time my dessert arrived it was 9.49pm, so I ate a couple of bites. We paid the bill and left disappointed. I would rather have paid for a takeaway- it would have been much cheaper, it would have been hot, on time and filling. We came out and paid for congestion charge, £24 car park and for food and service that was awful.

    We had a really lovely meal here, the food was fantastic and the service was so attentive as it was our anniversary they gave us a complimentary dessert out of the blue. We will definitely be returning!

    I was able to book a table but when I arrived at 5pm, it was shut. No staff were visible in the restaurant and there was a sign saying ‘Takeaway collection only’. This should have been made clearer on the website and I shouldn’t have been allowed to book a table.

    I love the interior and set up, very classy. Somehow the lighting is too dim. Booking was easy and hassle free. It’s good that they set time limits for tables. I love all the dishes that we ordered except for the Chicken with cashew nuts, it’s too sweet and too salty.

    By far my favourite- crispy duck

    This restaurant is famous for the Duck dishes - Aromatic duck and Cantonese roast duck. We absolutely adore the Cantonese roast duck. It is definitely the best we tried in London! The Japanese aubergine tofu and the vegan meat french beans are excellent. They are suitable for vegetarians. The best of all is the service - everyone is so friendly and efficient! It makes a very enjoyable night out.

    Great service, great food.

    Love the relaxed vibe, a posh pub essentially. Love the tiles on the walls ands the chairs are comfortable to sit in. Wine selection wasn’t great for us personally. Food is good and plentiful. Service was slow on our last visit but I’m putting that down the covid and reduced staff.
