We were taken here as part of a small group to experience authentic duck. The place was fine - very busy which is usually a good sign. Service was slow but we weren't in a hurry anyway. Everyone enjoyed their food. The other dishes were the usual safe rice and noodles. The only thing that put me off was a... More

Dadong used to serve and taste better. Recently, I had a friend from LA who wanted Beijing Duck. So I booked for two at the Dadong Gongti. But the experience was terrible. First of all, no table was available on arrival - what was the point of booking? After apologies, we were guided to a corner table, but there was... More

I'm not an expert on Roast Duck - though this delivered for me! The whole performance of the Duck - carving at the table, example pancake folding and the food itself proved excellent. A really enjoyable evening.

if you like duck, this is the place for you. The duck takes about 40 minutes to prepare, so make sure to order other stuff. The best dish I had in Beijing was here: the sweet and sour duck... oh my goodness. Even my picky eater daughter gobbled it up. The duck fried rice was not very good.

Very good duck place, they have an open kitchen in the middle of the room and they roast with three woods like tradition implies. Superporfessional service and perfectly speaking employees.

Went there with my Family - the place is modern and stylish - but service and food was excellent. It´s a bit difficult to judge the sizes of the dishes - but the waiters helped us out... The Price was expensive in Bejing stadndard - but compared to quality, service and wine i.e. Europe - it was really, really good!... More

Incredible duck. Nevertheless the food is not the only experience you expect when you enter in such a restaurant. Good setting, food is superior quality (comes with superior price too). Now for such a place u expect a senior manager or supervisor to great you. Nop. I expect someone to help you out in choosing, Nop. You expect someone to... More

We loved our experience at Dadong. First of all, lets talk about the menu...it's massive. Both in quantity of items and actual size. So is the restaurant come to think of it. And it was packed, which tells us in a big city like Beijing, it must be good. We had some cool starters like salmon with smoke, and fresh... More

This restaurant in the 2nd ring is very nicely appointed has an excellent Beijing Duck and boasts of excellent braised sea cucumber. Although I have not tried the sea cucumber I think their duck is excellent. Having eaten the BJ duck at several well known restaurants in Beijing I would say the carving is done very meticulously and the flavor... More
