We went to a more upmarket roast duck restaurant at Quanjude in the Hutong area in Shichahai but Dadong was far superior. The skin was really crispy almost no fat and the meat was tender and juicy. A very simple restaurant but absolutely worth it. Not too pricey either.
The best Peking duck in Beijing. Honest!!

We waited for 80min before a freshly roasted duck was ready for carving!

Coz we visited at 3pm and we thought off peak hours meant no-wait!

So we ordered Chives & Egg dumplings, Beijing Zhajiang Noodles, home-made toufu during the wait.

Totally sumptuous and well worth the wait!

Went to Da Dong in wangfujing a few days ago- excellent roasted duck and sides, nicely served. Do not expect a fantastic decorum though, and the personnel, while helpful, is rather busy. English spoken by several waiters.

The food was good but the lack of interest of the staff was distressing. They did not seem to enjoy their jobs or the steady flow of tourists. Not worth the premium to be paid if you order anything but the duck.

Yes, the food is very good. Waitress service is typical for Beijing - poor. What was not acceptable was the absolute refusal to help in any way with locating a taxi for us to get back to our hotel.
