We made double the quantity of everything as we are very hungry people and, although to begin with we both were pleasantly surprised, after a while it became a bit same-y. I think the duck and the texture of the noodles were nice but there were too much cucumber and dressing.

A little disappointing. I was planning on making this into a warm dish with egg noodles and pak choi, but the duck took waay longer than stated to cook (closer to 1hr) so the vegetables wilted and were cold by the time it was done. Sure there are better ways to cook duck legs.

This recipe had become a family favourite, it is so quick and easy to make and get on the table after a day at work. It also has the added bonus of being healthy.

I thought that the cold noodles were a bit strange - would be work better with warm noodles.

This is lovely - works well with pork too if you can't find duck. Also used egg noodles the second time with no problems. My husband doesn't like chinese food and he loves this!
