The duck is exceptional, the atmosphere is non existent

To have the dish, the restaurant is famous for, was great and the duck was excellent, although rather expensive. However the atmosphere at the restaurant is as if you would go to a restaurant at a motorway. From the lightning to the busy waitresses running and screaming around don't go there if you... read more

We went to the restaurant which was close to where we were staying on our first night in Beijing. It was the perfect introduction to Beijing restaurants. We had not booked and when we arrived we were told there would be a 30 min wait so we sat in the small bar area and had a couple of beers. Almost... More

The food was very good. The scampi sashimi was simply divine and the roast duck is not to be missed. For the first half of the meal the service was good but then our waitress disappeared and no one would attend to us. Dirty plates left for 30mins on our table. We would get someone's attention and would seem to... More

The service was awful. No other way around it. Waited over an hour for the duck and several tables were served even though they ordered after us. Was willing to forgive the service but the duck was dry. Do not go here.

The Peking Duck served VIP style is the only way to go. It was Incredible, make sure to make a reservation. We were sat and didn't get much attention right away, we are American and I would recommend asking for the front to help you order as some of the servers speaks English but most of the do not. The...

I like the environment of the restaurant, it's very treandy and comfortable. We went DaDong because we would like to try the Peking Duck. I am not sure why the Duck was not hot when it was served, and the duck was too thin... Other foods are average.

I went to the new restaurant at Gongti it was spectacular!!! The place was large and open with beautiful lawns leading up to the front door! Inside was stunning although the large video screen showing different menu items was a bit distracting. The food came quickly and was beautifully presented ... And delicious! If I had a complaint it would... More

The first bite of duck skin was served to us dipped in sugar, it literally melted in my mouth! The duck itself was amazing. Good wine list; we tried a Chinese wine that was quite good. Recommend reservations. It also appeared that the goose would be very good as we could see them cooking in he middle of the restaurant.... More
