  • Order the duck. They will hurry to put it into pancakes. Stop them and make your own pancakes. Or have the duck on its own, it is good
  • Order the pork belly. Of all the many dishes I have had at Spicy Duck, it is easily the best
  • Do not be misled by the name. This is not really a duck restaurant. You will get everything, and most of it is not terribly spicy. So it is not really Spicy Duck when it comes to the food

Vir's Verdict

22 /30

Hardly anybody remembers this, but the Taj Palace was the hotel that popularised dim sums in Delhi in the 1980s at the Tea House of the August Moon. Also on the menu was Peking Duck with all the trimmings. Except that you could not find good duck in Delhi in the 1980s, so the dish was made with chicken instead. The Tea House is long gone and its successor, Blue Ginger suffered from having an ugly room and a cuisine (Vietnamese) that Delhi did not like. Now Blue Ginger is also gone but the room remains roughly the same (new upholstery, though) and the restaurant at the old Tea House location is called Spicy Duck. This time around, they can do real Peking Duck, and it is carved and served at your table with panache. The dim sums are back too, and the menu is all Chinese, though it steers clear of the Sichuan style that made the Taj’s Chinese food famous. This is the food of the overseas Chinese in Malaysia and Singapore, and the flavours are different from those on the mainland; some may be sweeter.

Tired and weary from travel I wanted somewhere hassle free with 'safe' food and little fuss. I got exactly what I needed: place is clean, food really good, solo traveller friendly with attentive (buy not intrusive) staff. No hesitation recommending here.

Good Food..Bad Service

We ordered Manchow soup and Chilly Chicken and both were outstanding....dint expect this good a food in this part of Delhi! The only part which wasnt good was the service of the waiters.

It's Okay !

It's located in the busy lanes of Saraswati Marg, Karol Bagh. It is famous among foreign tourist, it serves alcohol and North Indian Food. Though it is a very small restaurant.

Cheap cut

Ordered chicken curry 🍛following waiters advice. Disappointed 😞by the meat it was leg plus scrappings of chicken in curry, not the cheapest meal I've purchased in india but certainly the cheapest tasting.
