5-star quality food at affordable prices. The duck was super aromatic and the fish was so fresh! Even the vegetables taste exceptional. I love every dish I ordered! Defnitely one of the best meals I ever had in JB.

Love the taste of the herbal duck. It's not overpowering for those who don't usually like the taste of chinese herbs. The bbq pork (or char siew) is worth trying too. You can also order other dishes pretty much like a chinese restaurant, so I usually order a vegetable stir fry or soup to go along.

The old ladies taking orders and serving are nice and friendly, and would be happy to offer suggestions.

Some road works that is taking ages is going on, so that makes the walking from City Square to the coffeeshop slightly difficult. Look out for the big hanging duck outside. Hard to miss once you get on that stretch of road.

Oh, and this is near the cluster of hip cafes, so you can grab coffee and dessert after a satisfying ducky meal.

This place is air-con. Ordered a plate of tang sheng duck with roasted pork and char siew with 2 glasses of soursop. Understand this is the 4th generation operating it. Find the duck rather normal with no tang sheng smell. Char siew is ok but roasted pork is a total let-down, not crispy at all. Like their chilli sauce. For 2 persons, cost us RM 39. Service is good.

We bought 1 whole Dang Gui duck as a takeaway.
The texture was great though I would love it to be slightly undercooked.
Dang Gui flavor was pronounced without being overwhelming.
We also bought some braised duck wings for RM$1 each and the kids love it. Quite a joy to watch the kids wrestling to get the sliver of meat.
Will try the roast pork and Char Siew next.
