“Peking Duck to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Fabulous experience from beginning to end. The duck are cooked in wood burning fires in a central arena so there is lots to see. We managed to get a table alongside so got some good photos too.
The menu is enormous, but all with photos to help you see what you will get. Even so we found it all bewildering so went for one of the cheaper tasting menus. An exciting selection of small appetisers were served one after the other all beautifully presented. Then came the Peking Duck which was expertly carved at our table and came with all the usual accompaniments. Really crispy skin and not too fatty. Finished off with a small dessert and a bunch of fresh lychees.

“Gimmick only”
2 of 5 stars 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”
5 of 5 stars 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”
4 of 5 stars 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.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

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.
