Why Spring Deer Restaurant is special ?
Spring Deer is one of those classic Hong Kong restaurants that has developed a reputation of a necessary dining stop for both locals and tourists. It has little to no décor, but that’s not exactly what you head over here for. Prepare for a fantastic Peking duck experience, along with tonnes of other dishes on offer. The huge circular tables are great for a loud and boisterous group dinner and work well with fun duck pancake-making and other family-style dishes.
The chefs mostly come from Northen China and many of them escaped during wartime to Hong Kong, bringing with them authentic Beijing cuisine without a trace of pretension.
Must try dishes:
Seared lamb in Bejing Style
Shark's Fin with Chicken Soup
Fried Crab meat with egg white
Sauteed pig's esophagus
Duck in wine lees

Tips for you
We have been coming here every month since 1970's, and not much has changed since: same menu and same staffs, except we all have aged. It still has the best Peking duck in town, tender & juicy; prices are cheap compared to other well-known establishments in town; and thus, it's still most popular among locals. Quality of other dishes has deteriorated some what, because of change of suppliers of certain ingredients and lack of QC. Service is very Chinese, efficient and attentive but chaotic. Our favorites besides the Peking Duck, are crispy beef with sesame pockets, fried whole pork shoulder, egg white with crab meat, and steamed vegetarian dumpling. Be sure to call at least 3-4 weeks in advance to reserve a table or show up at 6 PM when it starts dinner. Just relax and ignore the loud noise and chaos; and have a great meal in a Chinese way!
The head waiter was kind enough to accommodate us even w/o a reservation since we came early. The peking duck is one of the best in HK & is served with the softest pancakes.
