Why Da Dong Roast Duck (Sishitiao) 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.

Tips for you

  • You can share the duck but the side dish is one per person.
  • With several locations throughout the city, you have your choice of well-appointed locations.
  • Not the most romantic of spots - far more suited to business/bigger group meals.
  • The restaurant is hard to find on the street so you may want to ask locals for the way
  • You have to ask a waiter to show you how to eat it!
  • Ask your waiter and you can go downstairs to see the ducks being cooked.

Through the many raving reviews on Tripadvisor, we found this place while we were searching for the best Peking Duck in Beijing and decided to give it a try. Place is impressive, we didn't make any reservation and did not have to wait to be seated. You'll have a huge headache though, from the massive selection of food that they serve! The photos on the menu didn't help cos every one of them looked so good. In the end we gave up flipping through the menu since it'll take us forever to decide. We asked for recommendation from the waitress instead. We ordered a few dishes - the signature Peking Duck, some orange broth with lobster, veggies, and a few other dishes. Food came promptly, presentation of the food was beautiful!! It's like you're at a Food Fine Art presentation gallery or something. Each of them looked so good and the flavour was beautiful as well. There was this one dish where they stuffed something crunchy inside the big juicy and sweet tomato, with a layer of caramel coated on the outside. The texture and flavour was mind blowing I'm still thinking about it now back in my hometown. Coming to the duck since it's the signature dish of the restaurant, I'd say it's pretty good compared to those at Quan Ju De restaurants. I'm not a duck person cos I always find there's a odour or stench from meats like duck and lamb, but this was surprisingly acceptable for me. A tip though since the duck can be quite fatty and affects your appetite, eat it with some of their sliced cucumber. You'll find it more refreshing. At the end of the dinner, they even gave us complimentary fruits which we were too full to eat and kindly rejected, but they insisted on it. Bill was of course not the cheapest, but for the visual appeal, the variety and flavours, presentation, service and overall experience, I'd say it's damn worth the try. Pamper yourselves once in a while, ya? (: Will definitely return for visit next time to try out all the other dishes. (:
