Walked in without a reservation. Accommodated at the long table. Excellent. The table itself was an impressive single slab that has curved over the years. A monument in itself. On this Beijing trip we managed 6 Peking ducks in 6 days. And Dadong came tops. The duck is roasted when you order, so it may take up to 40 mins.... More

This is a newer chain of Peking Duck Restaurant that is definitely giving those traditional brands (such as QuanJuDe) a good run for their money. Having not visited Beijing in 10 years, a local friend took me here during my last trip to Beijing, and told me to forget the old chain and DaDong is the stuff now. And boy... More

There are many locations of this excellent restaurant. The one in the upscale mall ( and I think it's this one) is a must do in Beijing. Open kitchen filled w racks of ducks is amazing. Menu is HUGE. Try The Bomb dessert. It is a huge chocolate Mad a Magazine bomb! Great fun. Excellent food. Upscale. Dress for it.

The food was excellent but beware that it is easy to over order. Everything on the menu looks good and except for the duck (which yields little meat), the portions are generous. Each duck is made to order, so there is definitely a bit of a wait. The tableside carving ceremony is a nice touch,but was a little disappointed that... More

Duck was fine, in China standard. But if you travel to Hong Kong, duck is so much better there. The services were poor and the table were not clean. Again, another over-rated restaurant.

Worst restaurant I have ever been to. Went because of the reviews. Had booked a table for 9pm. On arriving they said we had to wait in the queue. Argued we had a table booked but nothing until 9.30. Then they seated five of us on a table of 10. Eventually moved us to a better table. Then had to... More

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.
