Peking Duck: Reservations Needed?

dequila73 | Sep 18, 2007 01:05 PM

I'm planning on going to Beijing in a couple of weeks.

To have Peking duck at a restaurant, do people generally make a reservation at least a day in advance, call a few hours ahead, or just show up? Does it vary by restaurant? (I'm probably going to one of the popular ones like Quanjude, Da Dong, or Li Qun.) Also, does it depend on the size of your party?

I know that to eat Peking Duck in the US you need to make a reservation a day in advance since preparation is so intensive, but I heard that because of the volume in Beijing it's not really necessary.
