This restaurant is hidden behind Pacific place building in Sanlitun area in a modern brick hutong surrounded by art galleries. On the menu, you will find Chinese and Beijing food, including the famous Beijing roasted duck. Probably, one of the best duck you can find in Beijing with more famous Dadong & Quanqude restaurants. Please note that all these 3... More

First off, be aware that there are TWO locations for this restaurant. They both serve the same menu in the same way, but double check which one you've reserved. Going to Beijing meant, of course, sampling the famous Peking Duck, and this place had the best review in Fodor's. It's all served with great theatricality; they cart out the duck,... More

A little hesitant going as some reviews are significantly differing in opinion. We had a beautiful evening there. Service was efficient but unobtrusive, duck (which was pre ordered by the hotel concierge) was sublime - the skin dipped in sugar just melted in your mouth. Wine list was extensive and well priced for China. We paid around $200 AUD total... More

Went to this place with a friend of the families who knew the area. The place is lovely in a fantastic setting with a wonderful ambience and we had a great evening. Could not fault the service, could not fault the food and could not fault the wine. Would recommend to anyone

I was recommended to this restaurant by my hotel. Peking Duck wasn't the best, just average. The ambience was certainly exquisite. Service was also good. The place was a great meeting place as it had a lot of expats as their clientele. The rest of the food we ordered was not bad 7/10. I just had higher expectations when we... More

This restaurant is just behind and off to the side of the Legendale hotel. It is right behind the sign which says 1949. The reception is prompt and ushers you through two sets of elegant wooden automated sliding doors to the hostesses who check your reservation in broken english and usher you in. The interior is elegant and built around... More

Having eaten at Da Dong, Beijing's other fine dining duck restaurant, the private rooms at Duck De Chine blew away the competition. Nicely decorated, excellent service, and the best Peking duck I've ever eaten. Well worth a visit.

This restaurant having been recommended is in a wonderful setting. A vaulted old industrial building that has been fabulously renovated. The duck was delicious however the service wasn't wonderful. This is an expensive restaurant and the staff were not particularly interested in supporting a positive experience. Also note, every component of the Peking duck meal is charged seperately.

This place is very nice located. The food is delicious. You can eat duck, vegetables, etc. The vine is expensive but they always have an offer. Good place if you would like to try local food in more luxury please.

in Beijing, you are bombarded with a thousand and more Peking duck. I was in Beijing for about 15 days and I can safely say that I ate Peking duck more than 10 times (due to work / business engagements). What sets the Peking duck served here apart from the rest is the brilliant atmosphere of the restaurant and also... More
