This is my second time to Beijing, my relatives who are staying here for many years told us that this is the best Peking Roast Duck in Beijing. According to them this restaurant always long queue and long waiting for food (45 minutes to 1 hour), the best is to make reservation before you visit, prepare to wait and enjoy... More

As you enter the restaurant, a window-encased terrarium of cooks tend multiple ovens, fixing fat ducks into the inferno and bringing forth glistening birds, dripping with their juices. Your server teaches you how to wrap your first duck in thin wrappers with spintered scallion, julienned radish and cucumber, sweet bean paste, and other condiments. My personal favorite is dipping the... More

With all the choices for roast duck in Beijing I finally decided to try Da Dong and I'm glad I did. Our hotel made a reservation for 6:30. We took the subway to Dongsishitiao station exit D. Once on the street, turn left (west) 50m and another left at the first alley head south another 50m past the New Poly... More

We thought we had planned the perfect night out in Beijing. First an evening show at the acrobats and then roast Peking duck. The acrobats were 10 out of ten however DaDong restaurant left us a little disappointed. When you enter the restaurant it is very impressive, a modern bar and a large kitchen that you can see into where... More

They served the best Peking Duck you ever find in Beijing. But that come with a price. The Peking duck here cost about RMB268, typically about RMB100 pricier than normally restaurant that served Peking duck. But this is indeed the best I ever tried. The rest of the dishes are also about twice pricier than normal restaurants. But as you... More

On a recent family trip to Beijing, we splurged to enjoy the Peking Duck and other delicacies at DaDong. It wasn't cheap, but it was well worth the experience. After a mix up with our reservation, they were able to seat my family of 5 and we had the Peking Duck and several other chef's specialities. It was one of... More

If you are in PEK - eating Peking Duck at Dadong is an absolute must. After extensive research on which restaurant to choose for our first ever Peking Duck experience, my husband and I chose Dadong because it won out in overall reviews - and boy does this restaurant deserve all of the accolades. The decor is stunning. The duck... More

A great place to experience Chinese food in a stylish setting. The extensive selection of food ensures that there is something for everyone on the menu but of course the duck steals the show. Carved in front of diners and served with fresh pancakes and a range of condiments, it's a wonderful experience. The presentation of the food is innovative... More

Clearly no doubt Da Dong serves top quality traditional roast duck. This is my first 2/5 review on Trip Advisor and I do not moaning for nothing most of the time, but when you paid nearly RMB 1000 for a dinner of two although Beijing is not the cheapest city in China, equivalent to £100 I do expect a bit...

Dadong restaurants can be found at the high income and expat intense neighborhoods of Beijing. This chain's mastermind Mr. Big Dong (Da Dong), whom I met few years ago, is a very creative individual with infinite number of diffirent Chinese recipes. My personal favorite is the Dadong at San Li Tun area, which maintains its quaint look as well as... More
