Our guide recommended DaDong and made our reservation. Upon arriving at the beautiful restaurant, we were warmly greeted and taken to a table. When we were given the menu, we were overwelmed. This was our second meal in China and had no idea what most of the dishes were. Also, we still weren't too familiar yet with the currency conversion,... More

Worth travelling halfway around the world to finally appreciate what proper roast duck should taste like. Not cheap but a life-enhancing experience. Mr Dadong seriously needs to consider exporting this enterprise to other countries - Melrose needs a branch, and soon. A theatrical experience and fine fine duck-related scoff; unbeatable.

We arrived at Da Dong at 5pm and were told we could not have duck until 6pm and had to leave our table by 6.30 - not a great start. Following that we were handed a gigantic menu (2 feet tall!) and given no advice on what we should eat. Having ordered three dishes we were told this was not... More

Very good food and friendly staff. We ordered a duck menu and it was more than enough food for 3 people. The chefs will bring the roasted duck next to your table and slice of the best parts for servings. The staff we got did not speak English well, but they helped us with the menu anyway.

Impressive place with a delectable menu. Duck skin was roasted to melt immediately in mouth! Service was good, with their wait staff being prompt & smiling. Worth a visit, and remember to make a reservation or the queue can be painfully long.

The duck was delicious. And this is why this place gets a 2 rating and not a 1 !! Yes it actually does deserve a 1 !! If you read our other tons of reviews from around the world, you know that we are usually very skeptic when only 1% of the reviewers give a terrible rating whereas 99% of... More

My Hong Kong friends had told me that the Pekin Duck served in HK is better than that served in Beijing. Ha Ha Ha - and the haggis fly higher in Aberdeen, HK than Aberdeen Scotland ; ). This outlet is very elegantly decorated. We had a small duck, not being a big party and complemented the meal with lotus... More

I had never tried Peking duck before and I was surprised at how delicious it was. It's worth every yuan I spent and the price was fair. Reservations are required if you're eating duck.

Maybe we were expecting too much but we were disappointed. We arrived early about 5:30 pm and there was not much of a crowd. The hostest kept trying to place us in a busy traffic pattern but we persisted in getting a good table. We ordered rice with soy sauce with our duck and expected it all to show up... More
