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