The only place for Peking Duck. Make a reservation! And enjoy the show. Have extra time - it's not quick.

Come here to enjoy non-greasy Peking Duck! It's amazing. No gooey fatty bits although that said, the meat is a tad dry. A trade-off. The Gong Bao Prawns were the crowd-pleaser too! It is a tad expensive, we paid 538rmb for the 2 of us - half a peking duck, gong bao prawns, veg, soup and tea.

The four of us had a 7pm booking ( the Chinese tend to eat early). After a 15 min wait we were shown to an 8 to 10 seat table in a fully packed restaurant. Apparently a smaller table had a 2 hour wait? We took our own wine purchased duty free and asked if we could drink this. No... More

We went with work colleagues and had a private room. A very extensive menu, with duck as the specialty and you can go see the wood fired ovens where it is prepared (even pick your own duck). Service was so-so, but pretty good for China.

We decided to go to Dadong restaurant as it was close to our hostel and would give us the best opportunity of having traditional Peking duck. We had a duck between two with side accompaniments and a drink each for $60, we also paid $20 for 2 glasses of water on top of this! We had to wait 30 minutes... More

Everything went well at this restaurant. From getting our booked table to our desert. The menu was huge! We had Peking Duck, dumplings and scallops and all were perfect cooked. The friendly staff showed us how to do with the Duck. We were really satisfied with service during our dinner.

The wait was farily long (~30 minutes) for a table (party of 5) but there are complimentary refreshments while you wait and a bar nearby. The decor is modern and clean, and the food very good. It's pricey but worth it. The menu is physically very large and there is a lot to choose from. Of course one must order... More

We spotted this in Lonely Planet and they suggested you either loved it or hated it. We loved it! We arrived around 9pm so they were only really open for the next hour or so. Once seated, without reservation in a massive but packed restaurant, they suggested that if we wanted the duck that we should order soon as it... More

I had read good and bad reviews about Dadong, but also read that they had the best duck. I understand that the price range was 400-600 for two people. My family of 7 was looking forward to trying our first Peking duck here. We had an early reservation and they were not busy at all. The restaurant has it's own... More

Walked in without a reservation. Accommodated at the long table. Excellent. The table itself was an impressive single slab that has curved over the years. A monument in itself. On this Beijing trip we managed 6 Peking ducks in 6 days. And Dadong came tops. The duck is roasted when you order, so it may take up to 40 mins.... More
