This restaurant was amazing!! Desserts were over the top! I was a pastry chef who had worked for 4 James Beard award winning chefs and I have to say, this place knows what they are doing. Food and atmosphere were great! It may have helped that we were there with someone from Beijing who spoke Chinese. The foie gras cherries... More

Simply best duck in town. I loved the atmosphere and the overall good experience. It is not a Michelin star experience but very good quality and relatively good prices.

Was there with a colleague and we ordered the usual roast duck, dumplings and more. Roast duck was ok, condiments cost RMB12 per person and the dumplings was not as good as I expected it to be with the price. Ambience is beautiful and the many horses inside will keep the photo lovers very happy. The drinks at the bar... More

We were told by a friend to have dinner at DaDong Restaurant and we're very happy with the food served there. The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. The roast duck was absolutely delicious!

This restaurant looks very fancy, so we thought our bill for 4 was going to be an arm and a leg, but it was only $170. We ordered A LOT of food, 2 mixed drinks, a sofa, flat and sparkling water, duck, dim sum, dumplings, "snacks," salad, soup, some other dishes, and we did not finish most of it. I... More

Delicious Peking duck...comes with pancakes, soup and after dinner fruit so be prepared. Not much English so a bit difficult to understand how duck dish works! Highly recommend having the duck. Menu warrants a good read...even if it is just to read through the beautifully photographed dishes are almost to pretty to eat. Presentation here takes top marks!

Peking Duck is a must have here, and you get the complete experience with the chef, in full white chef's garb (including hat), at the table with his super sharp duck slicing knife. A great show and the resulting duck and pancakes is perfectly pleasant, but not the shredded duck you might be used to from the west (which I... More

Terrible service!!! We were ushered in by a disinterested waitress. Our table wasn't laid out. This was one of the top things we were looking forward to in Beijing. We were given the menus, we were deciding what to order for drink, appetizers and of course the duck. The waitress comes to us and asked us what duck do you... More

Without doubt, the roast duck at Dadong's restaurant is world class. The duck is perfectly cooked and sliced, and the crispy skin is so spectacular that my mouth is watering while I am writing this review. The restaurant and service are terrific, but the undisputed highlight is the duck. I read that a Dadongs will be opening in New York... More
