Led by award-winning Chef Fung Chi Keung, Kai Duck by Kai Garden at Ngee Ann City introduces modern diners to a refreshingly new concept in contemporary Cantonese casual dining.
In keeping with the faster-paced lifestyle adopted by today’s millennials, Chef Fung’s innovations with his Cantonese-style roast duck is a classic example of this thinking, together with other innovative dishes that can now be enjoyed by parties as small as two.
Although the restaurant prides itself in its more casual, relaxed atmosphere, the ambience never-the-less evokes the decadence of an emperor’s courtyard, which is juxtaposed with its central location on the 5th floor of Ngee Ann City on Orchard Road.
Hong Kong-born owner and Group Executive Chef Fung Chi Keung of Kai Garden and Kai Duck is an established and sought-after name among discerning diners of traditional Cantonese cuisine.
His 30-year culinary career has taken him through Hong Kong’s local Chinese restaurants and Singapore’s Mandarin Orchard.

Chef Fung also won several awards for the group, including a Gold Medal at the Food and Hospitality Asia 2012 - Imperial Challenge.
His dream of building his own brand and eventually a chain of Chinese restaurants to celebrate the legacy of Cantonese cuisine, is brought closer with the launch of Kai Duck. The restaurant features casual dining, and the menu features quick bites inspired by the signature Cantonese-style roast duck menu he developed for Kai Garden.
