Quan Ju De is a well known local restaurant chain that specializes in Peking duck. We went to Quan Ju De Restaurant on November 24, 2010, Houhai location, for Gracie's birthday.

The bus driver dropped us off at Lotus Lane (He Hua Shi Chang) in Houhai. Walk north along the west side of the lake (the lake should be on your right). The very nice guard/ soldier nearby ordered one of his men to accompany us there. We passed by many other bars and restaurants. Quanjude restaurant is near the end of the row, on your left.
We were delighted when we learned that this particular branch of Quan Ju De throws in a complimentary cultural performance every evening at about 7 p.m. Arrive early to secure a table near the stage.
You can check out the surrounding Houhai lake area (plenty of bars and restaurants) before or after dinner too.
