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.

    Slightly above average Chinese food, friendly but chaotic service, excellent atmosphere - the chicken with cashew was incredible, as was the duck. The wasabi prawns were a little sickly, and the salt and pepper squid could have been crunchier.

    I have visited the restaurant for dinner twice now and was seated upstairs on both occasions. The interior design is lovely and the atmosphere very pleasant, the staff were very friendly and professional as well! The restaurant was busy and very lively during our last visit so service was a little slow, but I personally prefer longer dining and breaks between my meals so didn't mind this at all. The food was excellent and very nicely presented. We really enjoyed our prawn crackers, vegetable spring rolls and dumplings as a starter, but our favourite was the roast duck as the main with a side of rice and broccoli. Half a duck was just right for the two of us as a portion and the flavour was incredible! What will definitely keep us coming back is the beer: the Pilsner tanks are the reason we chose to book this restaurant on our first occasion. Red wine options and prosecco are lovely as well. While the prices are a little steep, the quality of the food and great drink options justify the splurge, we will definitely come back again and recommend to friends as a great treat meal out!

    The food was delicious. We had assorted dim sum,crispy aromatic duck, vermicelli noodles and some green veg. I would definitely go again and recommend it to friends and family.

    I loved the interior design, it was a mixture between an antique setting and a retro, yet modern pub settings. The outside resembled a cottage, to an extent. I noticed that they dimmed the lights after a certain time in the evening - nice feature! The hosts were attentive, very communicative and checked on us about 3 times during the night. The service was fast, the food came out fairly quickly and it tasted fresh and tasty! I would recommend it! My favourite dish was the crispy fried duck rice. I love Chinese and oriental food and you did it justice. I hope to visit again soon!

    Great food but let down by the service. Staff were good but there didn’t seem to be enough of them. Also ran out of all beer/ipa on draught.

    I’m almost reluctant to reveal how I feel about Duck and Rice in case it gets any more popular, but that would be unfair to this wonderful establishment. The food is just gorgeous, and consistently so, in both flavour and quality. I love the choice available and cannot wait for the full menu to return. I love the beautiful, warm, stylish, yet relaxed interior. I take every friend that comes to London here.
