An upper end restaurant, serving mouthwatering roast duck and other fine Chinese cuisine. The meats are prepared to perfection, juicy, tender, and delicious.

da dong is famous for its peking duck for a reason. the presentation style of every dish (even those that weren't the star dish) was spot on, and the flavor was exploding with each bite. then, they brought out the peking duck. the entire process...was very elaborate and dignified, they cut it precisely and with so much care and skill. the waiters and waitresses that attended to our table were friendly, hospitable, and super helpful when we asked questions. the duck itself was the best duck dish in china by far!! such a delicious meal - a MUST GO if you're in Beijing!More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we were not disappointed. It is located on the 5th floor of a mall. We made a reservation at 4pm and when we arrived, the place was close to empty. Hence, we had a server all to...ourselves and she was very diligent in teaching us the 3 different ways to enjoy our duck, as well as pouring our drinks for us. She also helped us to pack our leftover food and even walked us to the lift. Really stunned by the service after reading a few negative comments here. The duck was super delicious! The skin was crispy and meat tender. We also ordered 2 other dishes - a meat dish and a veggie dish. The portions were large and all the dishes were tasty. In total for 2 pax, we only paid 800+ yuan which I felt was justifiable for the service and quality of food. I would recommend coming during non-peak hours as when we left around 5.30pm (close to dinner), the customers started pouring in.More

For the amount we paid we were highly disappointed with the service and quality of food. We later found another restaurant which served a whole duck with better ingredients service at half the price. The duck was good but the fresh ingredients that came with...it were wilted and looked like it had been sitting out for some time. The staff also looked like they could not be bothered with us and we felt extremely unwelcomed. I highly recommend going else where the locals eat.More

This place was just around the corner from our hotel so walking distance. What a great find! We were able to communicate well with staff using the picture menu to point and order. Traditional duck dish was so succulent and the price for service and...food excellent. Recommended.More

Trip to Beijing without trying their famous peking roast duck is imperfect. Xiao DaDong is one the highly popular restaurants that serves great roast duck with a smaller portion at reasonable price. I just ordered this half duck set meal and it's filling for 1...person. The meal ends with a complimentary ice cream too.More

We've eaten Peking Duck twice in Beijing - both times at this restaurant. Both times the duck was cooked perfectly, the side dishes crisp and tasty, the salads innovative but the service a little slow - still they always seem to be busy. We booked...both times (or at least our hotel did for us) and noticed that it was full both nights we went. It's a little tricky to find in the building - look out for sign posts! Recommended.More

Tasty-skinned Peking duck. Service slow, if you’re from USA. Warning: not easy to find, so prepare yourself to decipher the labyrinthine entry.

The duck was ok, but nothing spectacular, a bit of a challenge to order in English. The atmosphere in the restaurant is like sitting in a giant high ceiling ballroom, if not a train station. Broad menu offering various dishes apart from the roast duck...with reasonable pricing. Don’t try and order wine here, stick to pointing at the menu with your finger. Friendly staff though, but very factory like.More
