Visited here whilst on business in Beijing. Food quality and service both outstanding. Best food I are whilst in Beijing. The duck was the best I have ever had and would highly recommend anyone visiting to eat here.

Great food and atmosphere. Compared to regular restaurants in the area, it is more expensive, but is still a great deal when you factor in your exchange rate.

The best roast duck we had on our trip. The restaurant is massive and the menu is equally huge. We were initially spooked by all the high prices. This definitely isn't a cheap restaurant (contrary to some reviews here). It is very good though and worth a try while you are in Beijing. We went twice during our trip. Make... More

I had lunch here by myself this week and it was the best Peking Duck I've ever had…and I've been to A LOT of Peking Duck restaurants. Forget the other stuff…it's haute chinese food. Just come and eat a lot of the crispiest duck skin that doesn't taste like oil and is not too salty. The duck meat is tender,... More

Amazing duck at a reasonable price for how great it is. Service was average but didn't really affect the meal I would definitely recommend this restaurant. They sting you with the water though it is as much as alcohol! Nightmare!

First visit to Beijing and first duck. Very good meal with good service but slightly lacking in atmosphere as bright lighting and a table facing a wall as we were a small party of 3.

Read reviews and was surprised by how inaccurate about prices and service. My experience was expensive and like many things in china about reaching deep into your pockets

We loved the duck but the service was extremely slow. The bartender also cheated me by overcharging my Dry Martini cocktail with 10 yuan.

We sampled Peking duck in several places in Beijing and Dadong was the winner. In fact, we returned for lunch a few days later, just to get the memory firmly planted in our tastebuds. The entire menu is tantalizing and gorgeously presented, but the duck, of course, is the star of the show, and Dadong does it brilliantly. The meat... More
