“Awesome Peking Duck”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Our tour guide recommended this place, and when we arrived to a line of people waiting outside we knew it was for good reason! It was worth the wait - so if there are people waiting don't let it keep you from going.
The Peking Duck was awesome and the staff was great in showing us the appropriate way to eat the different duck parts in different sauces and wraps and buns. Great experience and by far our best meal in Beijing.

“Delicious cheap Chinese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

A Chinese tour guide recommended this restaurant to us and we went twice we enjoyed it so much.

My recommendations: Kung Pao prawn, beef with (? Black pepper) and the deep fried apples (finished with spun singer on top!). We also had some delicious greens too.

The second time we went back and had their Peking duck - which was good - it just wasn't as good as what we'd had the previous visit.

“Not a top place, but ok for a quick dinner for fair prices.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

A chain based restaurant, which might have seen better days. Food is fairly good, especially the mini cucumber and a really good mixed Salat, which is hard to get in a lot if restaurants. But atmosphere is loud, service average, place does not look clean, especially the toilets were not acceptable.

“Great duck at a good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Nice ambiance, not fancy or upscale, but clean and nicely decorated. The duck was as good as QuanJuDe at half the price (and no long wait!). Would go there again.

“Peking Duck Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

We were taken to this restaurant for lunch by some Chinese friends. We arrived at 11.30, a little early for lunch I thought but by 12md I could see why, the place was packed and we were the only Westeners in sight!
The menu is well presented with fantastic photos representing each dish. Often the photo dosen't represent what you get on the plate but these definitely did. Food and service was fantastic. The Peking Duck(160RMB) was delicious, carved at the table and the waitress showing us how to wrap it in the small pancakes with the condiments. The remains of the duck are taken away to be either made into soup for the end of the meal, roasted or put in a container for you to take home.
I would suggest a booking is a must.
This restaurant is a must in Beijing.
