User reviews of Xi He Ya Yuan 羲和雅苑
a) Peking Duck: Must agree with the previous review, look fancy, but there's something missing, I can't tell, its just not as good as Made in China or other famous peking duck place, is it the wood they used to roast the duck, I have no idea, just something missing.
b) Other food: Also agree with the previous review, other dishes are surprisingly not bad...its seriously not bad, not the best, but really not bad.
You can tell they are trying to be good, however, no matter how you try, if you are not experienced or you do not know what the customers really want, you just can't have the best service in town. Friendly but need improvement.
4) Price: The set is reasonably priced, for us, 10 pax dinner for just 700+ with peking duck, considered not bad.
Not as restaurant which you will go when you craved for good food, but while you are treating a few friends looking for a decent place, not too pack and not wanting to be ripped off, a good place to consider.
We went there for the famous roast duck with blueberry sauce. The taste was mediocre although the presentation was very royal. We found other dishes like the black mushroom and chicken, stir-fried string beans and steamed cabbage a lot more enticing than the duck. It's also a huge plus that this restaurant caters food from different regions of China, so you could practically satisfy every guest's choice of food.
