    Quan Ju De (Peking Duck): Excellent meal

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We found a large Peking Duck restaurant near the Peace Gate. Many famous people have dined here. It has a cheaper fast foody version next door. We ate a delicious meal there. We enjoyed that we could watch the chefs preparing the food, too.

    To eat the duck: Pick up a pancake, add raw spring onions dipped in a few splashes of bean sauce to the centre. With your chopsticks add a few pieces of duck to the pancake. Roll it up and enjoy.

    Peking duck is delicious and unless you are vegetarian I heartily recommend you try it.

    Quanjude Beijing Schihahai Roast Duck Restaurant: Delicious Roasted Duck Restaurant

    by Chinggis_n_Borte Written Aug 23, 2015

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A friend of ours flew from Shanghai and gave us a treat at this restaurant.
    This is one of the finest restaurant we've seen in Beijing that caters both
    for locals and tourists. The restaurant specializes in Roast Duck meal, but
    they also got a lot of other Chinese food in their menu. This is also a semi-
    yum-cha once in a while someone walks with a trolley with different types of
    dumplings and dim-sum. But above all the duck is nicely cooked and tasty.

    At this restaurant the guests are also entertained by shows like sword skills
    a cultural type traditional chinese music and dances plus other performance shows.
    We both highly recommend this restaurant.*

    Favorite Dish: Roasted sliced duck with special sauce

    Quan Ju De: The most famous place to eat roast duck

    by jorgejuansanchez Updated Jun 22, 2015

    It was my last day in Beijing and I had several hundreds of Yuans to spend, so I chose this restaurant to eat a duck. I had to wait for about one hour to be sitted. There were many customers in the hall, waiting, most were foreigners speaking english, even groups of about 20.

    Quan JuDe: Best Peking Duck

    by blueskyjohn Updated Oct 13, 2013

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The entrance is a different than most places. The entrance is on the road that goes around Qian Hai. There is a big yellow duck and thankfully there is a few hostesses that hang out there as they will direct you to an elevator to take down to the restaurant. Very open atmosphere. Service is above average and the Peking Duck is one of the best in Beijing.

    Favorite Dish: Peking Duck

    Address: Near the North Lake area

    Directions: Just past the entrance to Shichahai at Qian Hai

    Quanjude Qianmen Zhan (Original Outlet): Overrated Original Outlet

    by Jeanling Written Jun 3, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We passed by a few Quanjude outlets during our stay in Beijing but we insisted to dine in the original outlet at Qianmen - and what a disappointment indeed! First we were told the restaurant was closed and we were asked to dine at the fast-food dining area. Ducks and pancakes were served on disposable plastic plates and that totally killed the mood. Not much choice were available either. We did not border to order drinks at all. I felt ripped off by the outlet's reputation as the original location of the restaurant.... Disappointing indeed.

    *The same review by the same author under the user ID gardenchime is also available at Tripadvisor.com*

    Favorite Dish: Roast duck was not that bad, but the way the restaurant represent itself, e.g. serving on disposable plates and plastic cups, for me that is a real let down.

    Quanjude Roast Duck Restaurant: Peking Duck!

    by Willettsworld Written Aug 8, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I stayed near to the Qianmen branch of this famous Peking Duck chain but the road that it's located on (Qianmen Dajie) was closed due to renovations before the Olympics and so I made my way to this branch, just off the pedestrianised Wangfujing Dajie, to the east of the Forbidden City.

    It is thought that Beijing roast duck, like the tradition of roast turkey in America and the UK, owes its origin to the roast goose that is still popular in Europe on festive occasions. Westerners like Marco Polo brought certain European customs to China and may have introduced the concept of roasting poultry to their Chinese hosts during the Yuan Dynasty (1271 - 1368). Ducks had long been domesticated in China and the plump ducks proved to be an excellent substitute for goose. However, there is another school of thought based upon certain records that show roast duck has a much longer history dating back as far as the Northern and Southern Dynasties (420 - 589). Up until the Southern Song Dynasty (1127 - 1279), ducks were roasted in the area around Jinling, today's Nanjing. However, the later Yuan Dynasty rulers moved their capital city to Beijing from Jinling and took with them their cuisine thus making roast duck popular in the city that was eventually to make it its very own specialty.

    Whichever way, you can't come to Beijing and not have one and I decided to come to one of the best duck restaurants in the city. It isn't cheap with half a duck costing RMB120 but its well worth it in the end and is more of an occasion than just food.

    A selection of Duck around Beijing!: Duck all the way!

    by sugarpuff Updated May 20, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Duck places in Beijing are plentiful!

    Below are my recommendations:

    Hua Jia Yi Yuan
    Great duck and lots of other yummy dishes from all over China. Set in a traditional courtyard...very pretty and the price of duck although higher than before the Olympics is lower than other duck restaurants around town. It is on the 24hour restaurant street.

    Hua Jia Yiyuan Restaurant

    Da Dong
    Have had duck here maybe only once. Different branches around town. Huge restaurant area. I have heard its popular with the expats.

    Da Dong Restaurant

    Quanjude
    One of the oldest Duck chain restaurants in Beijing. Established in 1864, the oldest branch can be found in Qianmen Main Shopping Street. Prices are higher here but it really does have an old feel to it that will transport you back to ancient times!!!

    Quanjude Restaurant

    Eat lots and have fun!

    Favorite Dish: The Beijing Duck of course! Also I love eating spicy dishes so I would go for Sichuan cuisine too such as:
    Gong Bao Jiding (Spicy chicken and peanuts),
    YuXiang Qiezi (delicious aubergine dish),
    Xilanhua (brocolli like you've never tasted before with garlic!),
    Dan Dan Mian (spicy noodles),
    Si Ji Dou (green beans with a delicious sauce and spices on it)

    These are just some of my favourites! Most restaurants these days have picture menus and English translations so you can just point!

    Directions: All addresses can be found in the links above pertaining to each restaurant.

    Quan Ju De Restaurant: Peking Roast Duck

    by GlobeTrekr Written Mar 2, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    February 14, 2009. Valentine's Day. I took my wife Diana here for dinner to have some world famous Peking Roast Duck at the one and only Quanjude. Couldn't get in the same day at the original restaurant at No. 32 Qianmen Avenue so we went to the one at Houhai Lake.

    We've had roast duck before, back home in Los Angeles, so the 45 minute wait for a table had me anxiously waiting and all the hype was intensifying. Service was amateur at best. They sat us at a dirty table and didn't clean it off until a few minutes after we were seated. When the table linen and plates were set we were given a knife and fork while every other patron in the place is eating with chopsticks and no fork in sight! We actually took that as an insult, we're no experts with chopsticks but we can easily manage eating our food with them. We ordered the Roast Duck with all the fixings and shrimp wrapped with bacon and asparagus as a separate dish. Side dish was decent but bacon was very undercooked as is typical throughout SE Asia.

    The Roast Duck finally arrived and carved beautifully tableside. The carvers work swiftly and accurately, having it down perfect. The waiter came by and fixed us up a pancake each with duck and fixings and we dug in. I was a bit disappointed with all the hype the Quanjude chain gets regarding its roast duck. Don't get me wrong the duck was great, but honestly, I've had roast duck thats up to par, if not better, here in Los Angeles. For me the best part was the fatty skin carved from the belly that you dip in sugar.

    Someday we'll return to Beijing and have roast duck again. Only this time I will have Da Dong and/or Li Qun before I even consider Quanjude.

    QUanjude: Famous Peking Duck

    by SLLiew Written Sep 21, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many branches of Quajjude restaurants in Beijing.

    While other portions of the duck are consumed in the form of soup and cut up meat, the main dish is the crispy duck skin together wrapped in a thin pancake with other condiments like spring onion and hoisin sauce.

    There are 3 combination of preparing how to put above wrapping together to get different flavor and eating sensation. Ask a well trained waitress to explain these three procedures and you can try them yourselves.

    Cost is about 120 yuan or more per duck in most restaurants and you may want to order two ducks if your group wants to eat more. Usually Peking Duck is considered just a dish while you other other dishes for your lunch or dinner.

    Beijing food

    by wangyixuan1981 Written Aug 27, 2008

    Wooh... there are millions of good restaurants in Beijing, only thinking of them already made me feel hungry.

    But I doubt if there could be any coached tour to those food places. Perhaps the best way is to find a local companion (non-profit of course). can only give you some Must-Try's here:

    Beijing Roast Duck: QuanJuDe @ QianMen is the best, but also the most expensive.

    Boiled Mutton: DongLaiShun is traditional, you can see their polished copper boilers. HaiDiLao has the best taste in my opinion.

    Other original Beijing snack: You can look for JiuMenXiaoChi @ HouHai, it's just OK. Hard to find a pure one nowadays, because specialty in making complicated folk foods is unlikely to make a living.

    maybe above recommendations are too Beijing-lish, if you also wish to try other Chinese food, do go to JinDingXuan @ YongHeGong (GuangDong Style), MaLaYouHuo @ DongZhiMen (SiChuan Style), and RiChang @ DongDan(GuangDong Style).

    Quanjude: Classy Joint, Excellent Duck

    by doompling Updated Jun 22, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With reasonable prices considering the fancy atmosphere and the delicious food, this place is a good place to check Peking Duck off your list of things to do/eat in Beijing. It's 196 Yuan for a whole duck, 98 for half. Pancakes and sauce are extra. It had been highly recommended to me by a friend, and I was not disappointed. Just thinking about it makes me hungry . . .

    Favorite Dish: The Roast Duck here is a must, of course. Be sure to eat the brain too - it's tastier than it looks. As a starter, the cream mushroom and duck meat soup is delicious, with just a touch of sweetness, it's the perfect preface to the actual duck.

    Address: No. 309 Huizhong Beili, Chaoyang District

    Directions: Near Olympic Village, take metro line 5 to Datunlu East Stop. Walk west toward Olympic stadium, make a right onto Anli Rd. It will be on your left just before McDonald's

    Quan Ju De Duck: OVERPRICED!

    by kangningchang Written May 31, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    this place is know for it's ducks! most foreigners and Chinese people coming to Beijing from all over China will come here to have duck.

    i've been here a few times, and other than the first time i went (with a tour) to the Qian Men restaurant i was disappointed. The Duck here is now just over priced and it is sometimes even worse than the duck i have had at normal restaurants for around 50 RMB.

    the typical duck at Quan Ju De will cost around 200 RMB and other dishes are also rather expensive. But if what you're looking for is "mian zi" (face in chinese) or if you want to treat locals to a very "nice" (by that i mean expensive) meal. this is the place to go.

    othe wise, if you just want good duck, i suggest you check out Li Qun Duck (it's in my other tip)

    Favorite Dish: Anything when it's being payed by someone else. Overpriced food never tastes as good to me :)
