After reading the Peking duck recommendations on Trip Advisor, we visited Dadong, which was right by our hotel, the Park Plaza (loved the hotel, by the way!). There was a mix-up with our reservation, so we were told we had to wait an hour. Two hours in, I stood by the hostess stand until they seated us, as we were... More

Following several recommendations, we chose Dadong (near to our hotel - park Plaza Wangfujing... highly recommended!!). This was our first dining experience in Beijing, so not knowing exactly what to expect from a "high end" restaurant, we were rather blown away. I'm sure that you can find Peking Duck that's just as good from one of the local restaurants (although... More

Ten of us went to dinner for Peking Duck. Our tour guide recommended Dadong and we thank him for this suggestion. The private room where we were seated was quiet, the service was excellent and the food beyond great. We chose the set menu with appetizer , soup, beef and the duck and dessert. The duck was crispy, not fatty,... More

Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed eating at this restaurant. It is quite an extraordinary place as the ducks are roasted on wooden fires in an area around which you wait for your table, with a drink in hand, so are able to witness precisely how the ducks are being cooked. Luckily we had a reservation as the restaurant was... More

Taking up the entire 5th floor, this restaurant is big, but busy. Reservations are not accepted, but we called ahead to get a number so our wait was not too long. There is a bar area where you can watch ducks being roasted. There is an extensive menu, which includes many standard Chinese dishes as well as duck. They can... More

Our tour guide arranged a booking at this restaurant for us a couple of days in advance. It was brilliant. We had our small son with us and the staff were quick to get him a high chair and children's cutlery. The pork belly was delicious and the duck was unreal. The staff were attentive and friendly. I would highly... More

No doubt Dadong serves a tasty duck. But so do many much more modest places in Beijing. For the extra cost, Dadong gives you a fancy decor that comes across as more tacky than tasteful. The service is indifferent. Getting a table at Dadong proved to be a trial. Our hotel called a made a reservation but when we arrived,... More

I went in this restaurant following the advice found on a tourist guide. And I did well! At the entrance there are all the duck hung upside down, ready to be cooked. The room is nice and well furnished. I, of course, ordered the roast duck (half; it is possible to have the half or the entire duck, but for... More

Top notch food quality, very well presented food with good flavours. The food served in Da Dong is more fusion than traditional Chinese food. Roasted duck from Da Dong is by all means the best one I have ever tried in Beijing, the duck skin melts in your mouth smoothly and the sauce matches the duck perfectly. The chestnut cabbage... More
