the peking duck at Dayali was also just so-so. Not worth the hype. I'd rather go to Dragon Pearl and have ayce peking duck that actually taste decent.

Monday-Fri (9am-5pm): Queen Station or Eaton Centre

I don't know how many will agree with what you said - Dragon Pearl peking duck is poorly done because it is a buffet and standards are lower. You get unlimited quantities but that doesn't change the low quality. I've been to Dayali and their ducks are done well every time.

I agree - I unfortunately have to partake in both restaurants due to parental preferences. While the duck at Dragon Pearl is not the worst thing to eat there, it is not even in the same league as Dayali.

Both good for you yesstyle if you think it's better....way cheaper option

Not sure about September, but for August, Dayali was offering a semi-free Peking Duck if you paid for one at a previous dinner. You still had to pay for the condiments and wraps and the sauce, but otherwise was a good deal.

I'm a flight attendant in Vancouver who has done the rounds of most of the Beijing Peking duck restaurants . I started with the original branch of Quan Ju De 全聚德 south of Tiananmen at Qianmen. At the time, I was thrilled but ever since I've tried Da Dong , Li qun, and other branches of Quan Ju De. In Beijing, due to its history and volume, the quality of Quan Ju De has declined . I much prefer Bianyifang. But of course, that's Beijing.

Though the cut is thicker, less crispy; I prefer AYCE Peking Duck at Dragon Legend.

Dragon Legend and Dragon Pearl are the same company. The Peking duck should be the same quality at both locations.
I don't have an issue with the Peking duck @ Dragon Pearl, but keep on mind, that's based on the idea that I am only there to have a small portion of Peking duck.
In larger quantity, DP Peking duck might stand out as not as good.
It's one of those "Yeah, tastes good...but doesn't make me want another round" moments, lol.

I'm from Ottawa and come down to Toronto quite often for work and generally lodge along highway 7 and have eaten at Dragon Legend 6 times already this year.
I literally only eat the Peking Duck (four wraps x 4 servings), some fruit and icecream and I'm done.LOL

My wife is craving for peking duck and we'll be at Pacific Mall to pick up a pair of eyeglasses.

So Dayali is good for that? Any other not too expensive alternatives?

Chung King had a change of management and topmost review says the duck isn't as good as before. I found it dry but it seems a lot of people like it that way.
