Located on Smith Street in the heart of Chinatown, Da Dong has garnered its reputation through serving up its famous Peking Duck, dim sum and Chilli Crab to a loyal following of locals. The inviting Chinese food aromas also draw in the passing tourist trade, the restaurant's wooden floors and floor-to-ceiling window shutters making for a pleasant spot to rest those sightseeing-weary legs.
