Disaster in a box
We opened it for New Years day only to find it would not serve 4 as idicated on the box, just 2 ar the most, the small amount od sauce provided was just enough for 2. After cooking the quality was reasonable but little meat and plenty of bones. Our guests had to be provided with chicken.
Not as good as the Gressingham Crispy Duck that yo
Not as good as the Gressingham Crispy Duck that you previously sold. I would give that 5 stars. Sadly appears to be unavailable.
Despite this product showing more weight than the famous competitor brand, the amount of meat on the duck was hardly enough to do 5 pancakes, let alone 12! The sauce is very thin and messy. The skin refused to crisp up so we had to remove it. It was a disappointing meal overall. We will be ordering the proper branded product in future.
Excellent starter or side
Can't understand negative reviews about this product. There was a lot of duck between two and if cooked at sufficiently high temperature the duck was crispy and aromatic. It really is a fantastic way to eat duck at home. The sauce is tasty too. We are converts and it really is inexpensive compared to restaurant prices for similar.
Don't waste your money
Awfull! Duck was so small and tastless - not oriental tasing at all and very stringy and tough. Would not buy again. Nothing whatsoever like you get in a restaurant or take-away.
The quality of the components was sub-standard; the meat was dry and the pancakes did not heat up nicely at all. Compares unfavourably with Gressingham products.
You won’t be disappointed
I almost didn’t order this because of negative reviews. I’m so glad that I did. I’ve had crispy duck many times in restaurants. This compares with the best. At first sight, it doesn’t look as though it’s very meaty, until you start to shred. The meat just keeps on coming and isn’t even slightly dry. I heated up my oven for 20 minutes and then followed instructions. Only change was I left it in for an extra five minutes. It was perfect. I agree with other reviewers and would suggest buying your own hoisin. I had some duck and pancakes left over so to stop it drying out, I coated the duck in hoisin and put it in the fridge for the next night. It didn’t make it; it was as gone by lunchtime :) Highly recommend.
Great Saturday night takeaway
The duck is delicious and just what you would get in a takeaway but a lot cheaper. Add some thin slices of spring onion and cucumber. The hoisin sauce is truly terrible - thin consistency and just doesn't taste right so we bin it and use our green dragon hoisin sauce instead.
Inexpensive but really tasty weekly essential
Inexpensive but really tasty duck and pancakes which has become our weekly essential. The only downside is the amount of the source provided isn't very generous.
Not half a duck! Just a pathetic and feeble pair of duck legs. I cannot recommend this at all
