We visited at night, It was quiet and cozy, staffs were so nice! We totally loved it. Highly recommend! :)
We enjoyed a meal but we recommend dumpling than fried rice.
we ordered beef fried rice(originally fried noodle but we asked to changed it) but beef pieces were too small, couldn't feel any beef taste.
Shrimp dumpling, iberico pork dumpling were great!
We arrived early and were seated upstairs for a drink, an hour later no one came to check on us to let us know our table was ready. When we asked the staff there was some confusion and we were given the upstairs menu and told this was our to table, only to be then told by another waiter that our table was ready downstairs. Downstairs in the restaurant portion sizes tasty but on the expensive side. The duck was the major let down for us, first course was only the duck skin with no meat? second course was diced duck served in 6 lettuce cups. There's no way a whole duck could amount to this portion size. When I asked the waiter where the rest of the duck was he said, 'what the bones'? they have be thrown out. I've eaten at plenty of Michelin star restaurants and Duddells falls short, this combined with spending USD $400 (3pax) on a meal, you expect a better overall dining experience.
The food was excellent...but the service was very bad and resulted in a spoiled evening. When the prices are as high as they were (and they were high!) the service should never come in question. And it was pretty bad. Keeping in mind we were the ONLY table there and there were many many service people running around...
- We were told we had to order desert before we were served our main course because they were closing the kitchen. (it was only 930?)
- After being told we could not order any more food, we waited 30 min and then I had to go ask for the bill (?)
- It took 30 min to process the payment for the bill because the server made a mistake with the credit cards.
- Despite it being their fault, they didn't offer any concession (a glass of wine maybe? box of moon cakes? Anything?) for making us wait 1 hour for them to settle the bill because of their incompetence.
I'm giving them 2 stars because the food was very good. But after spending US $300 on a meal, we left very disappointed. What a pity!
Dudells Was a dissapointment in terms of the Food and general experience. It Was perfectly ok Cantonese Food that Was totally overpriced. Service started good and attentive But then started lacking in attention Although the restaurant Was totally empty. I am not sure What the hype is about.
Was very disappointed by the Peking duck in 2 courses. The duck was presented and it looked lovely and to be a good size. The first course was supposed to be served traditionally with pancakes and accompaniments except all we were given was a plate of skin and absolutely no duck attached to any skin. I asked if this was all that was to be expected and they said yes as they only serve it this way in Hong Kong which I find very hard to believe they would do this so differently in their London outpost to which I have been and had the Peking duck there. It was also very cold since it took them forever to slice and serve the duck. I suspect the server who was slicing had not been very experienced. As there were only 2 of us, my husband found 1 piece that had a hanging bit of duck on it and gave it to me to try to cheer me up from the disappointment. The second course of Minced duck in lettuce cups was a huge serving likely because of all the meat that had not been served in the first course. I found the service very dismissive. Nevertheless, if you only ordered the Peking duck first course, you would not have gotten any value for your money. And if you want a minced duck second course that is heartier than the first, then this is the place to go. Would recommend Mott 32 for Peking duck over Duddell’s any time.
It was awesome. I will visit again with other friends
Its an amazing place, but the Staff do not need to start explain what’s the difference between rose and white wine
Veryover-priced for a very average meal, wouldn’t recommend it
I had a stomachache whole night with my friend.
Exceptional service and attentive staff. Food is delicious. If only I lived in Hong Kong because it would be one of my favourite restaurants. Highly recommended.
Really disappointing, lots of deep fried overpriced food. Service was attentive. Would not recommend.
The service falls short of a Michelin Star establishment as I had to continually remind the staff to change our plates. It was difficult to catch their attention most of the time. Dishes were hit and miss with the roast duck and abalone soup proving to be a huge let-down considering the price charged. Iberico pork and dimsum dishes were good but to be expected for what they cost. The upper level roof garden is beautiful but only serves a limited menu. It is small wonder that my HK friends always prefer Fook Lam Moon which serves higher quality foods at even lower prices than Duddell’s.
Disappointing experience given the reviews we read which lead us to visit Duddell’s
Cocktails on terrace were excellent and staff extremely attentive
However service in restaurant was very unfriendly and unhelpful
Had to return one of the seafood soup because the broth was too fishy. We didn't expect an apology or anything like that but the manager kept on asking our server and looked at our table rather than coming up to us, which seemed very unprofessional. When the dishes were cleared up the manager came up to us asking "Check?" with an attitude. HORRIBLE service experience I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone but do come here for nice ambiance.
soso service, really bad food, and provide food value less than $20 worth, and i paid $900/ppl, i feel very stupid, and disappointed.
Went there on last Thursday with ex school mates. Good food, excellent service, comfortable ambiance but a bit pricy. Normally go there on business purposes and last Thursday was for friends gathering but it find it worth to go back in all kinds of occasions. Didn’t try the wine because still need to work in the afternoon but I have noticed quite a hood and vast wine collections especially you can have a glass of Ruinart Champaign before the meal.
Both the ambiance and food were great. Would definitely come back with a bigger party so that we could order more!
Service was ok tho. Some waiters have no smile on their face - the overall experience would definitely be more memorable if service can be improved.
Excellent food, excellent service, nice roof-top garden, price a bit high (upper limit)
Service was not that convenient for coffee at the end of the meal. Overall, however, so much fun the day before a holiday, Easter. I definitely would like to go there again soon.
Will visit again
Server, sommelier attitude was not that good.
Some uncomfortable feeling that give a pressure to order additional wine (we bring ours, and say that we'll charge corkage fee) and food at first time. (We said that we'll order additionally)
$60 for condiments we didn’t even use and service was too rushed. They served our main course whilst I was only half way through my soup! Therefore mains were cold when I got to eat them. Everything was over and done with for a 4 course lunch in about half an hour - not quite the fine dining experience we expected.
Beautiful restaurant, very attentive service and delicious food. For a westerner the menu was very unusual, so may not be for everyone, but worth it for an authentic high end Chinese meal
The food there were absolutely amazing and delicious! Service was very good as well. I will highly recommend Duddle's Hong Kong to my friends.
very disappointing...only the chicken is good, all other dishes are disappointing. Service is not up to the standard as an expensive restaurant, poorly managed!
Nice environment, good place for socializing and business meeting.
It was a bit hard to find the restaurant. I visited at lunch time, people rushed into the restaurant, fulled the table up quickly. I am not sure because of that, my foods came late. I had to wait to my order coming after finishing the first dish. The tasty of foods was great tho.
I would love to come back with my friends. I will try to visit the restaurant downstairs next time.
Waren im Salon, Level 4.
Cooles Ambiente. Leckere Snacks.
Although there were a couple great dishes the tasting menu was quite dissapointing for the cost. $1400HKD per person and the lobster was chewy, as was the Abalone almost rubber (first time trying Abalone is it supposed to be?). Crab shells in that dish which obviously should not have been because you can’t see them... Cocktails were good thankfully.
What set the mood a foul right from the start was having 2 bottles of Krug shoved in our faces almost before we even sat down and the waiter was quite pushy trying to sell us (without mentioning the price) $550HKD+ per glass champagne. Uh ya no thanks. Glad we said no...
The condiments were also an extra $85hkd, really? We had 3 tasting menus and you can’t comp that? Brutal. Water of course also cost more. What a joke. I thought Michelin was all about service? At least explain things. Half the dishes the waiters walked away without telling us what we were eating. At least the wine guy was good to describe the pairing. The service was also a bit rushed with the wine pairings I had ordered. Pouring me the next glass before I’d even finished the first and clearing dishes in front of me while I try to drink, almost hit the glass while I was drinking!!!
Considering the plentiful and great food options in HK I have no idea how this place has 2stars. Doesn’t even deserve 1. Even the plating was boring and lazy.
If you ever go I would highly recommend a la carte snacks only. Lesson learned.
Almost $1000USD for 3 people should have gone so much further.
The food is just okay, compared with the price is not value.
Delicious, elevated cuisine. The crispy salted chicken and bbq Iberico pork are must haves! Service professional, but we had to refill our own water. Lots of business account types here.
Went for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by how attentive the service staffs were despite it being a full house. Food was great as usual, ambience was good, and overall experience at the restaurant was nothing short of great.
For the price we were expecting great food but unfortunately it was not. Two of the dishes including a signature dish, were very disappointing. We would not return.
Decor was nice but service was average and the food quality and taste was way below standard. Food looks better than its taste. Definitely not worth any Michelin Star. We had the Executive Set Lunch with wine so as to have a taste on a variety of food. The truffle fried rice was bland and we could not even taste a hint of the truffles. Noodles tasted so bad that we could not even get ourselves to have a second bite. Rest of the tim sum were nothing special, such as fried spring roll (oily) and Har Kow (prawn dumpling). Wine by the glass selection was limited, only one type of wine each, white, red and rosé, which were all of below average quality. I've been to many Michelin Star restaurants and this is definitely the worst.
Slightly underwhelming. The honey glazed iberico pork was nice, the salted Chicken was not crispy as advertized. The pork fried rice was tasteless. We also had a crab and prawn dish, both dissapointing. Overall it was ok, but not befitting a 2 michellin star restaurant. They also charge you for the Chili sauce, which really made me laugh. Who does this?
Our server made no effort to guide us through the menu selections or help navigate the menu in any way. We had a few questions and his answers were curt. He seemed almost frustrated. We couldn't understand the concept well at all. That coupled with the fact that two dishes weren't available to us, was a rude start to the dinner.
Then after selecting some options, the server asked if we wanted rice although we had already ordered rice as one of our selections. He wasn't very focused on the composition of what we were ordering.
The crispy chicken arrived luke warm, then when we made the server aware, he quickly brought it back reheated. I know that crispy chicken is an extremely complicated dish but if you can't make it fresh, you shouldn't serve it. I can't remember getting a reheated main course at a two star Michelin restaurant.
We also discussed staging and asked the server to bring the main with the vegetables which did not happen. So, we ate chicken then fried rice and vegetables separately. That is unusual.
Finally, the server prepared our bill before we asked for it and put it down on the table before our plates were even cleared. No dessert menus, or ceremony.
In a city full of amazing dim sum restaurants this restaurant stood out in its offering of unusual choices. Loved the shrimp dumplings and noodles as well as the soup.
