Why Da Dong Roast Duck Restaurant (Tuanjiehu) is special ?
Da Dong Roast Duck, nestled in the Nanxincang complex, a thoughtfully restored Ming dynasty imperial granary, is not one of Beijing’s famous centuries old Peking Duck eateries, but it was made famous by serving one of the best ducks in town.
The skin of the duck is crispy and the meat is tasty, and each roast duck is served with an array of condiments, including sweet wheaten sauce, granulated sugar, crushed garlic, thin slivers of scallions, red turnips and cucumber. Your molasses-coloured duck is presented at your table, carved table-side, and then several duck-filled pancakes are assembled for you until your waitress thinks you’ve got the knack yourself.
In addition to the perfectly roasted duck, Da Dong also offers a wide variety of fantastic Chinese dishes, all with great presentation. The restaurant has a classical Chinese decor with a bright modern flare, and the service is good, making dining here an all-round pleasant experience.
Must try dishes:
Foie gras in mango roll
Black pepper duck liver
Chef Dong's eggplant.

Tips for you
They highly recommended me to come taste Da Dong Beijing duck and it didn't disappoint. This review is for the one located in the Parkview green building, in Chaoyang district. Everything from the service to the food was topnotch. In a nice setting, very modern deco and in a very trendy shopping mall. The Beijing duck was outstanding, not fatty, crispy, and juicy. The sides were topnotch. Very high quality products. Really enjoyed my meal and all the extras we ordered. One thing, do not expect to have the traditional ritual to cut the duck on the table. For that you need to go to a different place. They were nice enough to let me peak into the kitchen, where they have a really nice and organized setup specially for the duck.
This is not your average tourist trap but the era thing. After many attempts over the last 14 years we finally discovered a truly excellent Beijing Duck Restaurant in Beijing :) every dish we ordered was superbly presented and brilliantly cooked. The service was immaculate and as can expected from a top line restaurant the prices were on the heavy side. The menu was extensive and I will have to go again to discover more … great experience.
