My wife and I had dinner here as a special treat. The restaurant lived up to its reputation. The ambience was fun and at the same time nice; and the food was fantastic,and the service was beyond unbelievable! We highly recommend this restaurant if you want a nice place to have Peking duck

First, it's good to know that this place is on the fifth floor of the Jinbao Place. You won't see it from the street. I get the impression that this is a relatively new location for this restaurant as some previous reviews seem to place it at street level farther to the west. It's pretty fancy and rather expensive; their... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel (Legendale), about a block away. Dadong was recommended by the hotel concierge. We arrived early; maybe 5:30 pm or so. Hotel had made reservations. It was my wife and I with our 18 month-old daughter. We were a bit overwhelmed with the menu, but ordered the fixed price tasting menu, which was perfect.... More

We visited Dadong following a recommendation from a friend and I have never been more disappointed with a restaurant. We did admittedly, arrive without a booking on a Friday night around 8.15pm, but were prepared to wait for a table and were taken to one within 15 minutes. This was our only pleasant surprise. We had our drink order taken... More

Located in one of those designer-brands mall, one is greeted by atypical Chinese restaurant decor ie. no red and gold. Firstly there were stone ovens/kilns where one would expect pizzas or breads to come forth. But no, chefs were roasting ducks - drew some oohs and aahs plus picture opp. The cream-coloured interior and modern chandelier lighting was relatively pleasant... More

After having been voted "The best restaurant in China" some years ago the owners of Da Dong seem to have lost contact with ground control. The restaurant itself is huge and the designer must have made crazy money creating this pretentious modern restaurant. When you enter, your focus gets drawn to the "center stage" where several cooks roast the ducks.... More

I have been to this restaurat only once so far myself but have recommended it to a number of friends, both British and Chinese, and we are all agreed: it's really great. The staff are courteous, friendly and efficient, the duck is fantastic, and the decor and general ambience are perfect or a relaxing evening out. Ideal for both family... More

The restaurant was chosen by our tour guide. It's set above a shopping centre. It looks beautiful when you walk in and has that exclusive feeling to it. Our group occupied three tables. Our table ordered two ducks. You watch them carve them as the waiter brings the pancakes and the other ingredients. The duck is carved and ours was... More

I ordered the tasting menu which consisted of 4 appetizer courses and I was told a half duck. The appetizers were average and consisted of crispy mushrooms and tomatoes, shrimp soup with less than 1 shrimp, lobster noodles, salty stir fried vegetables and then the duck. I expected a half duck but received 2 legs with very little meat and... More

We went there for a special occasion and it was totally worth it. Nice attentive staff, tasty food, nice interior. Only thing we didn't really like was the mango milkshake, which tasted like cheap vanilla cream.
