Nothing about the row of roasted fowl hanging in the window of this Chinese mainstay distinguishes it from the cluster of other dingy and carpeted Sino-style restos found along Queensway, but the queue that often stretches out the door tells you this is a place of legend. The roast duck from Four Seasons is talked about from Singapore to Hong Kong, and they should know a good roast when they see it. Mix up your order with a bit of roast pork as well then slather the whole thing in the super-addictive, salty sweet special sauce that makes this place so great (let’s be honest, it’s probably the MSG). Keep it simple with the roast meats, the other dishes are done much better elsewhere on the street – pop next door to Goldmine to top up the order if you’re really craving something more. As usual with Chinese restaurants in London, don’t be surprised by indifferent service and a bit of a wait; it’s all part of their charm after all.
