This place is quite good; the duck is reasonably cheap (around $60 a duck) and very delicious; the meat is incredibly succulent, the pancakes wafer thin and the trimmings (cucumber and onion) are pre portioned, so you can make your wrap to suit. The duck...More

I've lost count on how many times we've been here for their Peking Ducks in the last two decades. Uncle Simon used to own and run this place, not much from the outside, messy, old, plain and dirty, prerequisite of a great traditional Chinese restaurant....More

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

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
