The roasted duck was delicious but the portion was amazingly little. We ordered half a duck (RMB 134) with some vegetables and noodles. While the duck was tasty, it seemed overpriced for the amount paid. The service was mediocre and we had to signal to the staff a few times to ask for the bill. Overall, we found the fried... More

The duck was smallish and a bit tasteless, everything else also bland and not to the standard one would expect for such extortionate prices. Waste of time and money.

It's actually a shame to only have duck given how extensive the menu is (looks like a Harry Potter spell book, its so large), so going as a group is advisable if you can. My wife and I had the duck, a fried pie, some Chinese broccoli and some shrimp in a spicy sauce - all were very good indeed.... More

I asked my hotel to reserve a table for us which I would recommend as it gets busy at dinner time. I had the Da Dong mojito while we waited at the bar as we arrived early which was really delicious. The restaurant is very impressive looking with a carp filled moat stretching around the area where the ducks are... More

My review is about the branch located close to Wangfujing st. The restaurant is located on the 6th floor of a commercial building, it is a big place with luxurious decoration and you need to wait about 45 minutes to receive a table in the summer(reservation is a must...). The menu is very extensive and very expensive for Beijing standards,... More

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.
