“Gimmick only”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

The menu is thick and huge like a phone book.
The dishes are mostly gimmick, aircon is poor. we were all soaked in our sweat after dinner.
It took forever for our orders to come.
It is $$$ the veggie and the oxtail dish were good.

“One of the best meals I've ever had”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Amazing Peking duck. What's special about their duck is that it's so lean with little fat and it has a terrific smokey, charcoal roasted taste. Terrific value as well. Seafood is top notch, but stratospheric pricey, but you'll find some really exotic fishes served. We had the leopard grouper cross bridge in lobster broth. Best fish dish I've ever had and that I'll be dreaming of for a long time. If you can, splurge abit and you'll taste a little bit of heaven.

“Great Peking Duck”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

On a recent trip to Beijing, we ate at Dadong. We got reservations for 6 pm and were immediately seated. Unfortunately, I don't think many of their staff speaks English. We were given a huge book of a menu. The menu is definitely extensive and there are wonderful pictures of every item. However, we really just wanted to taste the Peking Duck and then have enough other food to fill us. The waiter was unable to help us so he called over a supervisor to help us. Unfortunately, she just kept saying we needed more food, so we kept ordering more food. In the end, we didn't need as much of the food as we ordered. The food was good, we just didn't need so much.

Fantastic, delicious roast duck. The menu is enormous but all you really need to order is the roast duck special with condiments. Wafer thin pancakes, shallot, hoisin sauce etc plus the spectacle of the chef slicing wafer thin slivers of duck. A must do Beijing experience.

“First time - Peking Duck”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Their specialty Duck is divine. So well worth going and also to see their Menu, it's like a picture book with over 120 pages with all sorts of food. It was a experience. But well worth going for the Duck, I would go back.

Service good, but through no fault of their own, there was a fight at a table with some drunken patrons who decided to smash beer bottles and plates, while they were very sorry for the incident occurring and gave me dessert and my drink for free, I found that NO ONE handle the situation and the scene continued until they decided to leave instead of being thrown out.
