Looking for best Peking Duck from a take-out place to serve at home - in SF

Want to serve peking duck at our house for an afternoon party - wondering where to get the best duck along with fresh buns (bao) ...someone mentioned a place on 25th and Irving but I don't know the name. Any recommendations? I've looked through a lot of the duck threads and most are for sit down restaurants - if you've done take out at one of these places successfully, I'd love to hear about it too. Thanks!

    Check out Five Happiness across the park on Geary.

      Keep in mind that Peking duck is usually not done for takeout. The crispy skin can get soggy in a container, and steamed buns can quickly get hard after they cool down.
