Best Food in Beijing

The duck was magnificent. Best we have had in all of China. The dessert was something special. It was a Very memorable evening.

My partner and I recently had dinner at Dadong after it was recommended by our hotel staff. The food was actually very good. The Peking duck was very tasty. However, even though we had a reservation, we had to wait for one hour to be seated and once seated, we waited another 30 minutes for the service to begin. Overall,... More

"How great was that?" said the man in the lift as we returned to the ground floor from Dadong Jinbao. It was fine, we replied, but that was Very British understatement. In this context 'fine' means 'I don't agree with you that it was great, but I am too restrained to tell you so.' In fact it wasn't great. It... More

Turned up on saturday night without reservation. Very polite staff, pleasant 30 minute wait at the bar. Large selection of cocktails, the local adaptations invariably sticky sweet. Extensive wine list. 5 course taster menu steep for Beijing prices but well worth it. Experience was let down by the next course arriving before the current one was finished. We came to... More

Ok, our meal was really very, very good. And the Peking Duck was excellent but not the "best I've ever had". The other things we had were prepared quite nicely as well. Expansive menu with some interesting items to try. I would definitely recommend a visit but just set expectations properly.

We went to this restaurant on recommendation from our hotel. We were taken care of by the friendly staff. We looked at the extensive menu and knew that it was going to be hard to find what we were looking for. The waitress was ready waiting and I told her in english that we wanted Peking Duck with pancakes and... More

Amazing restaurant. Location is somewhat odd (in shopping mall) but the Peking Duck served is the best I have ever eaten. The dinner we had will go down in our family history!

I had lunch at DaDong shortly after 11 am on a Monday. I did not have a reservation, but was seated right away. It took several tries to order my water, though the staff spoke good English, but they kept on forgetting what I had ordered. There were only two other tables occupied, but it took a very long time... More

Very impressed with the quality of food, the food art and the friendly staff. You may have to wait a long time for a table if you don't have a reservation.

Even though it is difficult to find and it is a bit expensive, it has good quality and tasty food, the roasted duck is the best I have ever eaten!
