This Google Street View shows the location (same address as the Kwai Lam):http://goo.gl/maps/p7wsBPS: ignore the 21 Wellington Street small street view to the left of the screen - it's way off (as are many Google Street View results when typing in an address)!

Thanks uncle mick! I must have added the word Duck from my own imagination, based on the Peking Duck dish

First 'proper' restaurant I ever went to was the 'Peony'! it was in a basement opposite W H Smiths

I remember going to a Chinese restaurant in about 1963 near the Wrens pub with my mates. It was called something like the Golden Ball. I think we all used to have Beef Chow Mien. But I definitely remember having loads of Tetleys first.

It was "The Golden Ring" Loiner which was above the Grand Arcade where the semi circular window ishttp://goo.gl/maps/JVQIlIt was the first place I had my first Chinese " Pork, Bamboo Shoots & Water Chestnuts" circa 1960
