Good Luck restaurant at Enfield – Review

Good Luck Restaurant.

Good Luck Restaurant.

This restaurant has been around for more than 15 years. I have always heard people talking about how they have the best Peking Duck in Sydney. So, finally two weeks ago I went with my girlfriends. But before you walk in, you will need to book notify the restaurant 1 day ahead on how many Peking Duck(s) you want.

First impression, the decor from the outside it very plain. The windows usually are shut, covered with white blinds. You can’t see inside of the restaurant unless you open the door and walk in. The restaurant has this musk smell like wet carpet, not too strong but there is a smell which we couldn’t decide what it is.

The menu is in English and Chinese (prices provided on the side) so it is easy to order. There are plentiful of choices, from fish to meat and vegetables.

The waiters and waitress’ English is quite limited though. They will try to accommodate and help but it can be difficult to understand them. We finally picked a few dishes –  tofu pot, vegetables, sweet and sour pork and fried rice.

The pancakes for the duck is a tad thick for my liking. I prefer it more thinner where you can appreciate all the flavours and textures. After eating a few pieces I was becoming quite full.

Not enough pancakes were provided with a serving of the duck – there was a lot of duck left after each person had two servings of the pancakes. We had to ask for an extra 2 plates of the pancakes which had about 15 pancakes each.  However, it took such a long time until they brought out the extra plates of pancakes – at least we know it was freshly made.

The Peking Duck cost AUD$65 each and easily feeds 8 people at 2 servings each.

Peking duck one set cost $65.

The other dishes? Honestly there is not much to write about, very plain and ordinary. Even the fried rice was mediocre, no wok taste and it was ‘wet’.  All dishes was a let down.

Overall the Peking Duck was well cooked, meat was succulent and most of all the skin was crispy. Was it worth AUD$65? Hmm I don’t know. I don’t know how much a Peking Duck usually costs. I think in City you will need to pay approximately AUD$100 a duck. Will I be going back soon? Maybe one day but not too soon.
