Wild Duck, Kingston, Canberra

Standard

Wild Duck is definitely elegant and full of style. The decor is warm, tasteful and relaxing and service is very polished and professional.

All this makes it a good pick for a special night out.
BYO is an option at $10 corkage per bottle.
The menu has interesting dishes on offer.

The Lamb Shank in Golden Sands entree  $16 is like a cross between shantung lamb and san choy bow but probably needs a dipping sauce). The Roast Duck Rice Paper Rolls entree $16 has nice flavours but they are similar to other restaurants.

The King Prawn and Green Papaya Salad entree $17 has a lovely flavour.
The Dragon Cut Baby Eggplant was delicious and good value at $26 (a more generous serve than other mains and does not need rice to accompany it).

The Pork Belly in Lotus Leaf $30 has a very tasty thin layer of meat but is quite small in size and quite fatty.
Rice serves are also very small.

The Black Sticky Rice and Vanilla Meringue dessert $14 is also a small serve and the sticky rice may not be quite sweet enough.
The small size of the dishes (and rice) make it very hard to share in a group and also mean several courses are needed even for a modest meal.
This can make it quite an expensive night out especially if you’re hungry.
