It's totally worth it. Superb wood-fired Beijing Duck, amazingly tender pyramid pork and beautifully fragrant Beggar's Chicken.

The duck, paired with a solid pinot noir, is one of my defining meals from my last trip to China.

I have had the Peking duck in Beijing and Xindalu certainly serves good duck.They carve the duck in front of you and serve the crispy skin with sugar, the breast with garlic sauce and the thigh with the garnishes and pancakes. However the rest of the duck does not get served to you unless you know to ask and pay extra (which we didn't) Overall the meal was reasonably pricey.Wine as previously mentioned is super expensive one glass cost what we usually pay for a bottle of the same. Staff however were very attentive and friendly when we asked about the diiference in serving only some of the duck compared to our Beijing experience and it was a pleasant evening overall. A 'whole' duck with a couple of entrees fed 3 of us with plenty of room for desserts. Remember to order the duck when you make your reservation - it arrived forty minutes after arrival which was perfect.

XinDaLu restaurant is very good at service and the food is very nice. The pyramid braised pork and the Peking duck are gorgeous. I spent a wonderful time with my family there. Also I was very enjoy the open kitchen style. I will came next with my family again!
