Duck and Rice
90 Berwick Street, London W1F 0QB
Latest critic review: June 07, 2015

Duck and Rice

This has been set up by Alan Yau, opening right next door to his old restaurant Yauatcha. He's reinvented the space as a Chinese gastropub - so there's a more pubby environment downstairs with a Chinese restaurant upstairs. Expect a big focus on the duck, of course.

"At Duck and Rice you pay for a beautiful room, nice staff and a sense that it’s worth getting dressed up for. Yes, you pay rather a lot, but if you can afford it, that expense is rewarded." READ REVIEW

"This isn’t a Hakkasan or Yauatcha, but Duck & Rice still does decent dishes in a fun setting, and the mixture of Chinese restaurant and posh pub is inspired." READ REVIEW
