This is the best of the locations for this restaurant chain. Food is almost the same on all of them so basically I choose which one to visit for dinner with my family according to the service (here is the best by far) and the VIP rooms (here are bigger).

The food was good, the duck is carved right at the table which is a nice touch. The presentation of the food is very good if that is something that is very important to you. The duck order also came with a desert and some fruit as well, which wasn't made obvious to us when we ordered, in part I... More

Saw this in a guide book and also recommended this place by our hotel, which the staff booked for us. It was our first night in Beijing (and china!) so we weren't really sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. It was clean and the waitress was really sweet. The staff didn't really speak any English and we can... More

Our guide arranged for us to experience some Peking Duck and took us to Dadong. The food, presentation, cleanliness and staff were all great! While writing this review my mouth is watering and would love to experience all the wonderful favors again. Don't miss this place.

Went with my wife for the taste of Peking duck and we were more than happy. The buzz was amazing. The food was very good. Very quick service and at a reasonable price.

Lots of locals eating out, which is always a good sign. Great Beijing duck and a very extensive menu, with lots of other interesting and authentic food. Beijing award winning chef, complementary desert and a great ambience. Get there early, since beijiners tend to eat quite early and service gets a little poor as closing hour approaches and only the... More

We made a reservation at Dadong after reading about it online and in a guide book. We did not want to visit Beijing and not try the Peking Duck! When we arrived at the restaurant for our reservation, we were escorted to a dirty table still containing leftover dishes, napkins and grease! The hostess cleaned off the table while we... More

We were advised to come to this restaurant by our hotel. We certainly weren't disappointed. The staff are a little disorganised and they try to up sell you but if you stick to ordering the whole duck Peking style then you shouldn't be disappointed. We needed up paying the same as if we back in Sydney.

This is a really tasty Beijing Roast Duck restaurant in China. The facilities and the environment are fantastic and clean. People can see four huge roast stoves in the middle area and it is a live roasting duck show! Most of the dishes are in beautiful decoration. In addition, they serve very traditional Beijing dishes and some creative dishes as... More

We loved this restaurant for the atmosphere. Huge menu with English descriptions & pictures. The duck was very good. We had two side dishes. Both good also. The service wasn't great but we experienced very little good service in restaurants anywhere in China. The fruit on dried ice was a nice way to finish. The price was surprisingly low. Overall...
