After searching for a Peking duck restaurant, we found this place in the northside in an Asian area. We ordered the duck ahead and it came as a whole duck that the waiter carved at the table. Possibly a 6 pound one and that came...More

A recent visit to Chicago brought us to Sun Wa's and it was all about the duck. Sliced right at your table, they provide you with all the yummy fix'ns to create your own Peking Duck buns. They take away what's left of the sliced...More

This is a classic Hong Kong Barbecue House. A lot cheaper than a flight to Hong Kong. They go through about a thousand ducks a week. You do not need to reserve a duck 24 hours in advance. Big enough for large groups. The Salt...More

We ate here for dinner last weekend with a large group. The duck was carved tableside and it was delicious wrapped in the steamed buns with the provided sauce, carrots, scallions and pickled vegetables. You also get duck soup, duck fried rice and a duck...More

Continues to please--at least the food! Roast duck still the best I've had in the US (including NY Chinatown)...although this time it was a little cold. Eggplant with garlic sauce also up there. Chicken potstickers and baby bok choy good enough. Didn't care so much...More

Was at Sun Wah last night with 9 others. The 10 of us devoured 2 Beijing ducks, which they slice and serve with steamed buns (bao) along with some scallion, hoisin & chili sauce, pickled turnip & carrot. Along with the duck one gets fried...More

Being of Asian descent, I'm very picky about Asian restaurants, and I only came here because a friend wanted to (I probably would have never come here alone). It's a huge dining hall full of tables and, to my surprise, was pretty full on a...More
