There is a lot of hype around this below average restaurant. For some reason it is difficult to get a table in this ordinary place. The food tasted below average and for some reason what ever we tasted was cold or luke warm. Skip this...place !More

This restaurant is simply one of the best Chinese restaurants you could find in Mauritius! The quality and taste of the dishes are simply excellent! The Peking duck is wonderful and I really liked the fact that the rest of your duck is used by...the Chef for another dish that you can also enjoy! The main dishes, dumplings, noodles, etc. are all fantastic! On top of that, the high quality of service makes this food experience even better! The restaurant manager, Mr Rikesh, was simply outstanding! He really made sure that my family and I spent a lovely time and that everything was perfect during our dinner. He is the epitome of the warm and authentic Mauritian hospitality, along with great professionalism and excellent recommendations when you need some help with your food order (as you simply want to order everything from that varied and mouthwatering menu)! As I was celebrating my birthday during this dinner with my family, I was lucky enough to receive a very warm welcome from the General Manager (who is absolutely wonderful and so welcoming that you immediately « feel at home » as soon as you reach this beautiful hotel!), Mr Rikesh and his team on my way to the restaurant! The pastry chef and his team also made a beautiful and delicious fruit tart (which was pre-ordered) so that I could blow my candles and have a birthday cake to cut and enjoy it with my family as our dessert. I cannot thank the whole team enough (in particular Mr Rikesh & the GM) for making my celebration for my birthday a really special one and I highly recommend this restaurant along with this hotel!More

Our recent visits to Duck Laundry at Lux Belle Mare were simply fantastic. Rikesh, Shad, and Omesh made our evenings exceptional with their warm welcome and attentive service. Special mention to Rikesh who’s an absolute gentleman and is an employee who Lux Belle Mare should...pay special attention to. Not only did he help us in the restaurant, he also gave us help with other aspects of our stay. The restaurant’s modern and inviting ambiance added to the overall charm. Duck Laundry is a must-visit, and I highly recommend it for an unforgettable dining experience. Five stars all the way!More

The restaurant is within the Lux hotel which only reopened on 1st Oct 2023 following a fire which totally destroyed the hotel. The new restaurant is lovely and very atmospheric. We were looked after very well by the staff who were very friendly. The food...was excellent and very well cooked. We had Dim Sum, main courses and coffee to finish. The meal cost around £60 a head which I think was reasonable for the quality of the experience. However, we each had a glass of red wine as we are not big drinkers. There were only two choices, each at around £40 a glass! Rather steep I think and disproportionate to the cost of the meal. I didn’t study the main wine bottle list. Hopefully something the restaurant will adjust as they are newly reopened. Nice wine though !More

Our family were blessed to enjoy two incredible dinners at the Duck Laundry in the last week of June 2022. My wife and son are both foodies, and were excited as they had read about the Duck Laundry and were expecting great things. They experienced...far more than they could have hoped for, with every interaction being fun and every item presented being fantastic - one example being the century egg treat. In addition the chef and manager were just an absolute pleasure to chat with and learn from. Both evenings at the restaurant were such highly memorable experiences, set against the backdrop of the larger Lux Belle Mare, that in itself and with its staff was also a place of great wonder and joy. We understand that the Lux Belle Mare was hurt by fire recently. Our hearts go out to all the staff of the Lux, including the Duck Laundry. May you rise again swiftly and strongly, and may others also get to enjoy the exceptional experience that you offer soon.More

So much respect and gratitude to restaurant manager “Beelur” and hostess and waiter “Kishan” :)More

This was our last dinner for our honeymoon stay and everything was delicious. We got about 4 starters, 2 mains, 2 sides and a desert to share. Yes we overate! But it was worth it. There is plenty to cater for different dietary requirements and...service is attentive. I would say this is more a couple's place but we did see some families with children. thank you again from Mr and Mrs khandaker, we hope to come back again so we don't have to say it's our last night!!More
