Best and affordable Peking Duck for Two People

My husband and I would like to order Peking Duck. Do you have any recs with reasonable prices? I notice that a lot of places make you order for a minimum of 4 people. We don't want to spend a fortune either. Thank you!

  1. One person's reasonable is another person's fortune. How much for the Peking Duck, how much for the whole meal, tax, tip are your reasonable?

    1. I've always liked Peking Duck House and find the food at their midtown location to be better than their Chinatown location.

      1. The one at Chef Ho's on 2nd Ave. and 89th or so is quite decent, and you can get half a duck if you like. Their prices are quite reasonable - we actually get it delivered some times.

          Thank you for the recommendation! We live right by Chef Ho's.

            I thought you were nearby there for some reason. I would stay away from the dumplings there though - the wrappers are just too thick. I do like their Wonton soup - I order from them sometimes when I'm sick!

        2. Beijing Duck House is up to $46 for a whole duck but worth it. Make sure you have them wrap the entire carcass and bones to take home. Mrs. GG always makes soup with it. I can remember when it was $26. Man, I'm gettin old.
