As usual the hoi sin sauce is lumpy and curdled. We must have had 10 of these in the last year or so and more often than not the sauce is lumpy or horrible...such a shame. Now and again it is the what you would expect. Smooth, tasty and nice but unfortunately often it looks like its gone off. Duck is OK..not as good as Gressingham but its OK
This half duck and pancakes was a big disappointment. No flavour at all. The hoison sauce was not proper hoisin sauce.
DO NOT BUY. Absolute rubbish. Duck tough, sauce is nothing like hoisin. Pancakes brake up. Save your money. I can't give it 0 stars, it certainly doesn't deserve any.
Very tasty duck!
Very tasty duck. Didn't 'pull it' - or use the pancakes. Just ate it with the sauce - new potatoes and home grown runner beans!
I'm shocked to read bad reviews! This as good as from takeaway. Duck skin was gorgeous and crispy - I did in fan oven at 180, easy to pull apart with 2 forks, not stringy at all. I bought my own Tesco hoisin sauce, chopped up cucumber and spring onions, put in a bowl and used scissors to snip very finely. Serves 2 and we ate it greedily whilst watching TV as a snack
Very disappointing, dry duck and AWFUL hoisin sauc
Very disappointing, dry duck and AWFUL hoisin sauce, watery and lumpy. We threow most of it out!! Want a refund!
Very disappointing-tough bland duck no flavour.skin not crispy even in very hot oven. Hoisin sauce had a synthetic taste and not nice -unpleasant. Had better crispy ducks from other supermarkets!
The duck appeared smaller than it used to be. We had it with cucumber and spring onion cut into thin matchsticks. Not enough sauce (not much taste) for even half a teaspoon on each pancake. Glad we had plenty of cucumber otherwise there would have been hardly anything in the pancake rolls - I have seen fatter cigars. We used to love this but won’t buy it again.
Really very good duck!
The duck itself was exceptional, moist and tasty. The only thing that let it down was the plum/hoisin sauce. No flavour whatsoever. Next time I will just buy a good plum sauce separately. Highly recommend!
Very disappointing. Used to be delicious. Must have changed recipe or suppliers. Duck bland and on the tough stringy side. No aromatic flavour to it. Goodness knows what the sauce is as it’s not like any hoisin I have ever tasted. Looked like lumpy gravy and had no taste. Pancakes ok. Would not purchase again.
