The entire duck is freshly sliced and cut infront of you, doing it so professionally and clean with their marvellous knife skills. Coupled with its pancakes, cucumber, duck sauce, the first dish is presented to you. They then take the remaining duck bones to make...More

Went there with friends from Brisbane and they absolutely loved it. Crispy and not oily, and good taste. The pancakes were also light. Only wished they would give more spring onions and cucumbers. But all things considered, excellent !

Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots,
hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll
find little independent shops where local clothes and
furniture designers display their wares. There are
specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best
thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its
