The entrance is heavily guarded: four men (white top black pants) stationed outside and six young women (all in black) lined up inside, three each side. It's China. I've a small gift bag, one of the women took it and ushered me to our private dining room on the second floor. The décor of the room is subtle, fresh cut... More

Loved the ambiance, the food was delicious. This was our first and only Peking duck in Beijing, so I have no comparison, but the dinner was not disappointing and our group had a wonderful time. We arrived later in the evening with no reservation and had a bit of a wait, not unexpected. Service was a bit slow and underattentive... More

Apparently the Peking roasted duck in this restaurant supersedes the others such as Quan Ju De. You could literally see the chefs roasting the duck in a central kitchen in the middle of the restaurants while dining. The presentation of the food was fabulous, way exceed expectation, live demonstration of the slicing of the duck and placing the slices on... More

I have been to this restaurant only once, but it was worth it ! The roast duck is exquisite, and the location and restaurant atmosphere are pleasing. Service could be slightly more professional though.

Two years after our first visit to Dadong Roast Duck, we returned with some friends who love roast duck. The duck was very good, though we have eaten better elsewhere. But the service during this visit was appalling! The greeters at the door managed their job okay, but the barmen obviously did not enjoy their work, and the young man... More

We had a really lovely meal, this is really a very good alternative if you're looking more for a lean duck rather than the more commonly served fatty version you find all over Beijing. The menu is more comparable to a novella, than a menu, if you feel a little overwhelmed, you can't go wrong with the "super lean roast... More

We made a reservation and was seated immediately at a table that still had food remaining from the previous customers. After insisting that the table be cleaned we were presented with menues after 3 requests. Waiters were unable to speak English which proved nearly impossible to order. We were entertained by customers on the neighbouring table screaming at the manager.... More

Don't even bother questioning this one...Simply stunning. From the time you walk in the door you enjoy free drinks until your table is ready. Then the food rolls...the duck is a mind blowing must! Exceptional and all the other dishes just compliment the finest dining experience I've had in Asia. Oh and the price you ask? Cheap as chips...

This restaurant is knows as the best Peking Duck restaurant in Beijing. Not only was the food good, the service was good. We were there the week after Michele Obama and her daughters ate there and I can see why they chose to have dinner in this very well respected spot.

Very modern decor, bustling but a generally quiet environment, excellent food and very professional table service.
