fat. It still retains all of the original flavors and boy, was it good. The Peking duck is more expensive here than almost anywhere else, but you get what you pay for I guess!

Of course when you are visiting Peking/Beijing, you must try the Peking duck! Enjoy the experience of the presentation by the skilled chef when it is carved at your table. Served with an array of condiments, it is nice to be shown how you should construct your little pancakes so that you can enjoy the duck in the best way possible. Very delicious and not greasy at all!

A must eat for Beijing. Fabulous food in pleasant surroundings. Watching the chef carve the duck at our table was a highlight. Folding pancakes is a good test of your chopstick skills.

The best duck I have ever had. You can get in without a reservation if you go early. The menu is intimidating, but the duck is towards the front. Be sure to catch a view of where they cook the ducks to see how it is done.

I didn't care for the 1 hour wait time to eat the duck, but the Peking Duck here is AMAZING! It's super lean and tasty, with the right amount of flavor. I came here alone and only ordered half a duck (which still wasn't enough!). While the wait was an hour, and people who arrived after me received their duck the same time I did, I did get a complimentary iced tea from a young gentleman and was also brought free dessert and lychee fruit served over dry ice after my meal, which was a nice touch. I was super full after that, and I'd have to say the free desserts at the end redeemed them for the long wait time. The half duck is about 134 RMB, and the chefs cut it up for you, which was a really cool display. I highly recommend people to come here if they want to try delicious Peking duck!

Excellent introduction to Peking Duck. The servers will show you exactly how to use the daunting array of condiments to either eat the duck simply (dip in a bit of sugar) or in a pancake (add hoisin sauce and matchstick vegetables). The duck will melt in your mouth. Vast wine list includes local varieties. Expect to spend time and money.

Biggest ripoff in Beijing = $200 for two for about 6 ounces of duck skin and leg scraps that was supposed to be half a duck - small duck - I could have had a better dinner at pizza hut for $10. DO NOT GO THERE IT IS A BIG RIPOFF.

Dadong is better than Quanjude but I find that there are better plaaces even to have Peking Duck. Although the duck they make here is very tasty I think that the crowing popularity has taken a little away from the former sense that cre was gives to every duck cooked. Now it feels a little commercialised. The location is great though.

We went to their original location for their famous Peking duck. While I can't compare it with their competitors, I have to say the roast duck we ordered was phenomenal. The meat was perfect, but I think I had higher expectations for the skin. It was a little sweeter than I thought it would be. Beyond the duck, DaDong offers a lot of Beijing and regional specialties with a tourist friendly menu.

Go there and enjoy one of the best peking ducks in the city. Altough the spot seems to be pretty fancy, dressing up isn't required (of course, long trousers wouldn't be a problem too;) ) The menu of the restaurant is around 200 pages long, but the dish you want is the first one, the original peking duck, that's filleted live at your table.

Amazing dinner. Upscale but if you're an amateur of Roast Duck, you will get it. The duck was simply amazing, one of the best, if not he best I've ever had. You'll need a reservation and try to get for early dinner. Also get a table by the fire pits, it's a show in itself...

DaDong Roast Duck Restaurant has become so popular it has opened several branches and the good news is: it has also managed to maintain good quality in their food. Of course the roast duck has to be ordered here, and everything else delicious is presented in a colorful menu with pictures and vivid descriptions that makes you want to order EVERYTHING. There are so many decent roast duck places in Beijing, and DaDong is an awesome choice!

I've lived in Beijing for 5 years and this is the best roast duck in Beijing! And their other dishes are fantastic as well (almost better than their duck). That is hard to find in a roast duck restaurant. A def must go if you are going to Beijing.

No more than two months may pass before another friend visits Beijing and we urge them to try what is in my opinion the best Beijing cuisine can offer. Skip the cow-belly lining, lung and liver stews, and other offal matter. Head straight for the roast duck once served to Chinese imperial appetites. Your taste buds deserve no less.

Service isn't perfect and begs for a little ship-shaping, but do excuse their performance and relish the sumptuous wood-fired crispy, roast duck. As you enter the restaurant, a window-encased terrarium of cooks tend multiple ovens, fixing fat ducks into the inferno and bringing forth glistening birds, dripping with their juices. Your server teaches you how to wrap your first duck in thin wrappers with spintered scallion, julienned radish and cucumber, sweet bean paste, and other condiments. My personal favorite is dipping the crispy skin into the garlic paste then into sugar. Try it. It's dangerously fantastic.

Don't believe your experience ends with the duck. The epic menu complete with photographs true to their reality will keep the locals busy for years and a tourist wishing they could stay.

Reservations are not accepted for parties after 6pm. A wait may last up to 45 minutes, but free juices and wine while watching the duck ovens and recalling your day's adventures will pass the time quickly. There's also something about building a ravenous appetite from watching the ducks roast that make the meal even more delicious.

Crisp, tasty roast duck. Best in Beijing and a favorite place to bring guests in town. All around excellent restaurant with a vast, sophisticated selection that extends beyond duck. I usually visit their Dongsi Shitiao location: 1-2/F , Nanxincang Int'l Building, A22, Dongsi Shitiao,东四十条甲22号南新仓国际大厦1-2层. Phone. +86 10 5169-0328
