“Very enjoyable experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

I went to the Quanjude Peking Duck Restaurant as part of a work dinner and the host organised a banquet.

There was a huge array of different food with cold starters progressing into a huge meal. I lost count of the number of courses that were served.

The Peking duck, which is their speciality, was excellent. Other memorable dishes included the braised abalone and a really excellent cold deboned chicken feet dish. That was really nice!

Overall, an enormous meal and a very enjoyable one at that.

“Quanjude or Dadong”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Dadong Peking Duck is more upmarket. The duck is less oily and the taste is milder.
Dadong presented all dishes elegantly, nice artwork and more like Western dishes.
Quanjude duck is more oily and more robust in traste.
I love to taste the duck in all its glory and hence Quanjude peking duck is my preference.
Also the Quanjude branch at Di'anmennei has a cultural show. After the show you can visit a long row of pubs which are very lively and belts out western songs. Souvenir stalls are found here.
The Quanjude branch here is beside a lake and it is a pleasant walk after dinner.
We took a private room and the service was good.

“Traditional Peking Roast Duck”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We took the set menu for 2. Good value. Roast duck different from Duck de Chine or DaDong. Dim Sum appears different from what we expected, though. It was red bean and green bean paste.

“Duck decadence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We ate at the Chaoyang branch of Quanjude near Marco Polo Parkplace. This is a must-visit when you are in Beijing. In fact, their professional basketball team are called the Beijing Ducks, so this particular dish is really part of the culture here.

There were 3 of us so we had enough roast duck for ourselves. The restaurant is large with some decor bordering on the tacky, but that adds to the charm. There is a small army of servers, expertly preparing the duck by your tableside. We had our roast duck sliced by the tableside and wrapped into rolls along with spring onions and hoisin sauce and the rest of the meat and bones boiled with a broth for soup. The carved duck were simply decadent, especially the skin, it disappeared quickly into our stomachs as fast as the very professional server can churn it out.

After your meal, you'll be given a certificate/card proclaiming you have just devoured a genuine Quanjude Roast Duck. I kept it as a reminder of the great meal we had.

“Amazing Peking Duck”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Making me hungry thinking about it. We had to try Peking duck while in Beijing and I'm so happy we did this at Quanjude. Lonley planet rated this restaurant and it was amazing. Very large floor plan looking a tad like a food hall with all the people in the one room but this adds to the atmosphere and proves how many others rate this restaurant. If your looking for the duck to please, you will find it here.
