    These restaurants will probably do the duck along with the family style / wedding-type banquet:

    Top Gun in Bellevue
    Imperial Garden in Renton
    King's in Bellevue
    Tea Garden in Renton
    Zen Garden in Mill Creek (a big maybe)

    Note that many of these places will range from merely acceptable to very mediocre. You've been warned.

      Never been to any of them.
      Hmmm, of what you have listed, which would you say made the best duck?

        What is your favorite of the acceptable?

          I believe the 2 Renton ones would be the best bets out of the list.

          Another place - Yu Shen at 140th and Lake City Way - across the street from the strip club - does a pretty good Peking Duck. I don't think they do the banquet there, though.

          With all these places, it's probably best to call ahead to make sure they offer the duck that day. Ditto the banquet menus - which will almost always be in Chinese only, if that matters to you.

            Sorry - I meant just north of 145th and Lake City Way.

              Sleep deprivation at work here...it's Tea Palace, not Tea Garden.

                For excellent duck, I recommend Harbor City. They serve steamed buns instead of Peking pancakes, and their buns aren't always so great, but the duck....

                FYI this one is not really your banquet-style restaurant by any means.
