Beautifully presented and tasty food. But setting and service very typical chineese. Factory feeling setting and service is very mediocre at best.

Even though the roasted duck is simply delicious (including the soup) this place has much more hidden tresures to enjoy. An incredible menu presented as a book where each page shows a new dish you'd like to order, from starters to different types of vegetables, fish, meat... The place is absolutely clean and peaceful (not usual in Beijing) and service... More

This restaurant has a grand ambience with a menu thicker than some of old school books. There's lots of pictures in the menu and you will have no trouble over-ordering. Servings are quite large and comes in small, medium and large sizes. The roast duck is quite slim and has a good oven fragrance. It comes with steamed wrap and... More

Our hotel recommended we visit Dadong for duck and we're very glad we took their tip! Based on other reviews, we might have got the timing just right-- we walked right in on a weeknight at 5pm and were told that the ducks would be ready at 5:30, so after an appetizer and wine selected from the thick English menu,...

Our hostess, our Beijing tour guide (22.5 years ago)/business owner, picked us up at our hotel with her 11-year old daughter. When we got in the taxi cab, the driver told her that we did not need him. The new branch was within walking distance inside a mall. It was located near Gucci. There was a long line when we... More

This restaurant was recommend to us by our tour guide. It was very nice inside and we loved the lean duck served here compared to other duck in Beijing! This was a fantastic meal and beautiful restaurant!

I have visited this branch before and also had duck at the Dongsishitiao branch a few times. No complaints about the food and their duck is really one of the slimmest I have had in Beijing. However, the service of the staff is really below any standard and seems to be getting worse every consecutive visit I paid them. Whatever... More

duck was great - presentation was great - but I don't think we are great fans of chinese cusine otherwise. The service was lacking and the hostess was not pleasant. Not sure if this is typical of china or just here.

My husband was keen to locate the DaDong Duck restaurant from a previous trip - apparently it's not exactly this one, but nevertheless, this was close to our hotel. Make sure you book in advance as they don't seem to accept 'walk-ins' and appear to be very very busy. They asked us to wait (about 20 mins) despite having a... More
