Not as good as restaurant

Looked OK, decent texture even though a little stringy and dry, but didn't taste of anything much. I wouldn't bother with this again.

A real treat... You won't want to share it!

Bought this while it was on offer but I wouldn't pay full price as it's not really big enough to serve two as a main meal, only if one eats more than the other which is what happened in my case, fortunately for me! It was very tasty and authentic, the duck just needed a bit more seasoning. Initially I thought the duck looked a bit small but was surprised by how much meat I managed to get out of it. The meat was rather tender although the skin looked rather pale, maybe due to lack of seasoning of the well-loved five spice. The hoisin sauce was much better than some other supermarket ones I've had before, though a tiny bit too sweet. I don't like to cook things in plastic so I steamed the pancakes in 3 goes and they were great. If you steam them all together the ones in the middle don't get cooked. I don't mind having to buy my own cue and spring onions because I normally buy them anyway.

Very disappointing

Not crispy, not spicy, dry, small, quite tough. Not at all "what it says on the tin"! A real let-down. Certainly won't buy again.

Great Quality

This duck compares most favourably with other supermarket offerings. The sauce is delicious and there is a generous portion of sauce unlike some brands. The duck i not huge but there is lots of quality meat on the bone and plenty to fill the ten pancakes.

Funny taste

I couldn't put my finger on it, but this had an odd taste to it. It was okay but I wouldn't buy it again.
