Detailed Review

Food 4 Stars

Very good food. The quality is excellent and repeatable. The food is tasty, hot and prepared to order (as you would expect). Chinese food isn't my favourite (but it is my wife's!), but I have really enjoyed all of my dishes from Crispy Duck.

Ambience 2 Stars

The waiting and counter areas are clean and tidy, but the d├ęcor seems dated and the pictures of food are old and the posters are all hand-written.

Accessibility 4 Stars

The entrance is level with the street, so should be easily accessible by wheelchairs and buggies. Crispy Duck is located part of the way up quite a steep hill (Albert Road), which may be an issue for some. The is street parking right outside on Albert Road and Ross Street, but finding a space can be tricky during busy periods.

Cost 3 Stars

Crispy Duck is about average for a Chinese Takeaway in the area, but it our favourite for the food, so the value for money is good. The only downside is the lack of payment options.

Tips 3 Stars

As they are cash only now, there is a ATM located about 100m up the hill at the Co-op Food store.
Closed on Tuesday.

Summary 3 Stars

Sadly, this otherwise lovely Chinese takeaway has declined recently as they only accept cash payments, which puts a number of customers off. They do not use Just-Eat or other online ordering services. Friendly service. Closed on Tuesdays.
