This restaurant looks very fancy, so we thought our bill for 4 was going to be an arm and a leg, but it was only $170. We ordered A LOT of food, 2 mixed drinks, a sofa, flat and sparkling water, duck, dim sum, dumplings, "snacks," salad, soup, some other dishes, and we did not finish most of it. I... More

Delicious Peking duck...comes with pancakes, soup and after dinner fruit so be prepared. Not much English so a bit difficult to understand how duck dish works! Highly recommend having the duck. Menu warrants a good read...even if it is just to read through the beautifully photographed dishes are almost to pretty to eat. Presentation here takes top marks!

Peking Duck is a must have here, and you get the complete experience with the chef, in full white chef's garb (including hat), at the table with his super sharp duck slicing knife. A great show and the resulting duck and pancakes is perfectly pleasant, but not the shredded duck you might be used to from the west (which I... More

Terrible service!!! We were ushered in by a disinterested waitress. Our table wasn't laid out. This was one of the top things we were looking forward to in Beijing. We were given the menus, we were deciding what to order for drink, appetizers and of course the duck. The waitress comes to us and asked us what duck do you... More

Without doubt, the roast duck at Dadong's restaurant is world class. The duck is perfectly cooked and sliced, and the crispy skin is so spectacular that my mouth is watering while I am writing this review. The restaurant and service are terrific, but the undisputed highlight is the duck. I read that a Dadongs will be opening in New York... More

Dadong is a modern and upscale restaurant. Menu is literally massive but the restaurant is known for Peking duck. The duck here is very good with extra crispy skin. Restaurant is good for small or large parties.

This place is simply outstanding. Worth of a Michelin star in my humble opinion. Had the sea cucumber, several Kung Pao dishes and of course the duck.

After a day walking @ the great Wall I asked if our guide could recommend us a good place for Peking duck. He advised us Dadong and made a reservation for us. The restaurant has a fancy and expensive look. We ordered the duck menu. We ordered one whole duck which costed around 289 yuan. Together with a massive 500ml... More

Thought the tastes were super mehhhhh the ambiance is what you're paying for. I actually enjoyed the Peking duck, but didn't think it was all that great. Maybe I thought I was going to be wow'd but i thought it was average.

Thank Nina N
