Also picrures of everything on the menu (English and Chinese) so you can "order without fear" My only complaint was that they were were completely thrown... More

While in Beijing, you must have the traditional Peking Duck! The staff are very helpful (even to tourists) and the chef prepared the duck that was perfect to the taste. Would definitely dine here again. The service, atmosphere and decor was impeccable!

We had an excellent meal with the Peking duck as the highlight. The preparation was outstanding, the duck almost melted in our mouths. I was with a fellow who is a frequent traveller to China and he said it was the best duck he had ever had and he must have had more than 50 ducks while living in China!... More

One of the best duck restaturants around, sit near the wood ovens and have a drink first and watch them cook your duck, Good service, good food and reasonable price

I visited this restaurant to try their famous Peking Duck. I must say I was shocked by the level of service afforded us. The waiting staff took our duck order said they would be back to take the rest of the order but we waited 15 minutes before they took the rest of the order. Then things went downhill with... More

I visited here after three different people told me it was one of the top 3 for the local duck speciality. I did not book and it was very busy but I was content to wait for 20 mins with a drink watching the spectacle of the ducks being prepared. In fact I think watching the duck go into and... More

We visited Dadong as we wanted to taste Beijing duck and the reviews for the restaurant seemed excellent. We took a tasting menu (598 RMB -pricy!) with six or seven courses. One of the courses was a souo that tasted like dish water and one had only some green vegetables in it so felt a little scammed. There were good... More

Food here excellent, initial service great, but table service very very poor. Whilst we speak little Chinese, we know enough to communicate, but if there are no waiting staff it's quite difficult!

Choose this branch of Dadong as being closest to our hotel (5min walking distance), located on the 5th floor of a mall. Booked in advance as weekend evenings are always very busy. The duck and the "signature" eggplant did not disappoint - really excellent!!! Staff is very friendly but hardly speaks any English. Only one thing - do NOT order... More

Too long Chinese fine dining has taken a back seat to French.. this place shows the potential of combining great tasting food with stunning presentations. The diningexpereince appeases all the senses, taste, smell and sight, Just looking at the heavy menu is an experience; too much to choose from not enough room in the stomach. The signature dish is jot... More
