Simon's Peiking Duck Restaurant in Box Hill

We were invited to the epic re-launch of iconic Simon's Peiking Duck Restaurant in Box Hill towards the end of 2022. For a restaurant to have the reputation and standing of Simon's, it requires decades of dedication and success. If ever there was a local hero restaurant it is Simon's Peiking Duck.

To see Simon's Peiking Duck restaurant re-launched in the most stunning way was a testament to their family and team, as well as some quality backers.

We ate generous amounts of delicious Peking duck, with homage paid during the evening to the late Simon Lay the visionary founder. It was a joyful evening of indulgence.

Duck pancakes were outstanding (loved the crispy skin and tender flesh) and a showstopper, as well as the duck noodles, soup and then dessert. In essence, this was duck done 3 ways, a strong part of their tradition and the essence of Simon's Peiking Duck moving forward.

A great night of conviviality, with the duck pancake experience enhanced by the practice of throwing the pancakes at the guests (a practice Simon initiated years ago).
