We were tired and hungry and the restaurant was very close to our hotel. We had to wait for 30 minutes for a table boo!. The food though was fab Hurrah! The unexpected surprise was a glorious refreshing salad containing pea shoots and other goodies. The duck was delish and served with some theatre by the waiter who carved the... More

Amazing food and service. None of the staff could speak English though that didn't stop them from trying to help us out when we had a question - really appreciate it. The whole duck is the way to go here plus whatever other extra dishes you want. Highly recommended!

Excellent restaurant to eat the famous Beijing duck, it is tender, crunchy with side dishes that only enhance the taste. Very well served. Worth waiting 45 minutes for a table.

We arrived around 6pm and got seated at 9. The queue is well managed - we took a ticket, wandered around the area for a bit - enjoyed the evening dancing in a nearby park - and didn't have long to wait by the time we got back. The food was okay. I love Peking duck and enjoyed it but... More

We got to Siji Minfu at about 11.30 (we'd heard about the wait after 12 and when we left at 12.30 there was a long queue!) and walked straight in. We were served straight away and brought complementary water and fruit. It took around 30/40 mins for our food to arrive but that's to be expected. The duck/pancakes arrived at... More

Recommended by our hotel over the apparently now-overpriced Dadong. Located close to the Forbidden city, unassuming but nice restaurant with a good mix of local families and foreigners as patrons. It seems to have become a Beijing highlight so queue is HUGE on week ends (am talking >2 hours). So go early, 5pm or earlier and take a ticket. You... More

We were recommended this place by a fellow antipodean tourist who had gone for lunch. They advised we arrive before 6pm or go for lunch as others advise, but we took a wrong turn and arrived later, and compounded the problem by being a big group (9). If only 2-4 people, we could have been seated much quicker. But they... More

Positive: great service. I recommend coming before 1500 to avoid long waiting time. Seems like a clean and professional restaurant. Negative: maybe i just don't like Peking duck, but the dish didn't taste good in my opinion. This might still be the right place to try Peking duck but it was definitely not my cup tea. The duck wasnt crispy... More

We went prepared for a long wait for a table in line with others' experiences. However we chose our arrival time wisely and were shown straight to a table upstairs. The food was superb. We watched as the ducks were cooked in the brick oven before one of them was carried to our table and carved with aplomb in front... More

Our favourite restaurant in Beijing which we never hesitate to return to again. The Peking Duck is amongst the best in Beijing (and therefore the world) - not only rated highly by foreigners but also, more importantly, the locals too on China's foremost foodie website DianPing.com. Pleasant atmosphere, good service, and great duck! Don't stop there though as there are... More
