It serves traditional roast duck. Nice setting, above average service. However it is expansive. The technique they use is is traditional, the duck is not as tender as others. 1 duck with 2 veggie dishes cost almost $100 usd.

Stumbled upon this restaurant while strolling the nice Quianmen street area. Recognized the name as one of the premier roast duck places in Beijing so we stopped in. Were not disappointed. The setting is a little upscale as well as the service. They bring the...duck to your table to carve it up and serve to you. Very juicy and tender meat. Glad we had the chance to try the famous roast duck while in Beijing. Cost about $60 for the two of us.More

This was out first proper restaurant in China, Beijing, we came in a group of 20 people and were sat around 2 tables. This lunch was included in our tour of Beijing, so I cannot comment on the prices. Food was very tasty, service was...quick and efficient. The restaurant was very busy with lots of tour groups coming in and out.More

No reason to pay more for less I would try other places next time. the staff were not very friendly but you need to pay 10% of added value plus tip.

It was the huge yellow duck sitting on the outside of the building that made us think this was a Peking duck restaurant, and when we realized it was one of the Quanjude chain, this was for us. There were 5 in our party, so...we ordered 2 ducks, and the soup dish. It was only around 5 PM and the place was getting quite busy. They did have an English menu so it made it relatively easy when placing our order. The place was well lit and it looked clean. The 2 ducks came out very quickly and we had 2 servers, who cut every piece of meat from the duck and also separated the crispy skin for us to try. Both were delicious. The soup was a bit bland, but the duck made up for it. There were 2 in our party who had never tried Peking duck before, so the waitress came over and showed them how to wrap the duck up in the small wraps and dip it into the various sauces. It was reasonably priced, and the cold beers just washed it all down nicely. The service was friendly and helpful. A good spot, close to many of the tourist attractionsMore

This huge restaurant and as really beautiful. We were the only non locals and no English was spoken. But don't let this put anyone off. The welcome was sincere and the service excellent. We shared a waitress with just one other table so attention to...detail was extraordinary. With pointing at pictures on the menu and a sort of English translation. The calomine tea was delicious. When the duck arrived it was carved at our table and our waitress showed us how to wrap the meat with vegetables and sauce in the pancakes using chopsticks. The food was delicious ... An excellent first night in China.More

This is an iconic restaurant where it is worth visiting. The star of the show is without a doubt roast duck. They sell over 1500 ducks daily!!!

Who knows how many ducks this restaurant chain go though daily but it must be a heck of a lot. When you arrive you are given a ticket and sit in a waiting area. There were approx 20 people waiting but we were seated within...5 minutes. The restaurant is grand with decorated gold pillars around the room. The staff were very well turned out. We opted for half a duck for the 2 of us, a beef dish and a mixed vegetable dish. The beef dish was tasty and spicy. The vegetables were crunchy and nice. The show though is the duck. The chef wheels out a trolley and carves the duck for you. The waiter then supplies the pancakes, cucumber, onions and sauce you need. He then makes one of for you as if teaching you how to do it. When the chef is carving the waiter brings you over a bit of duck skin and encourages you to sprinkle sugar over it and eat it. Not sure what that was about but it was pleasant. You then take your bill to the main counter and pay. A good choice for Beijing DuckMore

Be careful. Peanut oil is widely used in China or even in Asia.
