We were treated by clients to Beijing Duck in this delightfully atmospheric restaurant. Everything about the meal was sensational. The duck and other dishes were extremely tasty and the ambiance was modern, but clearly channelled traditional roots.
We were given a tour of the kitchen...to see the ducks being cooked using aged aromatic wood and then a chef carved the ducks at our table. It all added to what was a very enjoyable and memorable evening.More
This is my first visit to Beijing and the team insisted that we visit this restaurant as one of the best who prepare Beijing Duck. The menu are friendly all pics and small English text. We ordered a lot and if u want to try...the duck u must order it as soon as u walk in since it will take at least 30 min to be ready. I tried many new appetizer such as find mushroom and scallops with vegetable. The restaurant is massive and in a quiet corner. A meal for four with over ordering costed almost 300 USDMore
We had a very nice dinner here. Ordered a variety of dishes. All very good. Duck was of course part of it. It didn’t disappoint. All in all, a very safe bet for tourists / foreigners. Prices are on the higher side.
A very nice duck restaurant, elegant, observant waiters. Food was very good - but: the Peking Duck came after only 10 minurtes, we had just started the first two dishes. The cook did not celebrate the duck, simply started cutting it up and putting it...on the table. Other restaurants of this quality know better than that!
The whole meal was finished in 45 minutes... Not the evening I expected.More
If you are going to go through all the trouble of going to Beijing to have Peking Duck, why bother standing in line for 2 hours to go to one of the 4 or 5 joints that claim to be the originators of this fabulous...feast when you can simply make a reservation at 1949 and go to a place that has taken the dish to level of artistry that is only made better by the fabulous surroundings you will be dining in.
1949 is the Disneyland of Peking Duck Restaurants as it creates an environment that is pure fantasy. Lacing old imperial motifs with post revolutionary cues and some interesting art that layer into a wonderful sensory experience which is a far cry from the overly loud and abrasive Peking duck joints that you can find throughout the city...each un remarkable from the other even though the duck is often just as fabulous if not more.
Another nice note which the very pleasant but English challenged staff shared is that despite the extensive European wine list; there is no corkage fee...so my hand carried bottle of Nuit Saint George that made the voyage earlier in the week from Burgundy, France was well treated, decanted, slightly chilled and consumed so pleasantly that there was no additional fee and the duck fat was properly dissolved by it's beautiful acids.
No one answers the phone and the recording says it is no longer in service. I have been here many times in the past and it was always very good. Such a pity. It’s Sister restaurant in sanlitun is under renovation.

We live in Beijing for close to 15 years now. Duck de Chine is our favorite restaurant to bring guests from overseas since the quality of foods is high and the presentation is impressive. The wine list is also good. However, over the years, I find the costs of dining there has increased dramatically. Eg a simple dinner with a duck for 4-5 pax can easily cost rmb1800+ without wine. They charge rmb10 per pax for condiments as well as an additional rmb10 per pax for sauces. So if you have 5 pax, that's already rmb100 additional for condiments and sauces for the duck you're having. I do find that a bit greedy on their part. But if you're there to impress your guests and budget is not an issue, Duck de Chine is an excellent choice.
