Excellent service, beautiful restaurant, and the best Duck in Vancouver. However, the Christmas Day menu seems very overpriced. The duck is only $99 which I believe is worth every dollar. However, the other dishes are $210. and it was just mushrooms, noodles, soup, rice, and dessert. Although they did taste good, they didn’t seem to be worth $210 to me, as the ingredients used were low cost (noodles, mushroom, bread, pork). I would suggest to offer better quality dishes with the duck. Thank you

The Christmas set dinner menu is definitely worth a try. Food was delicious and portions are generous.

Overall, eating at Chang'an was a very pleasant experience and I am glad to say that I would return. I appreciate that the cuisine was honest and simple as Asian food typically is, and the table side carving of the duck was a nice treat. Portions were fair for the price and my guest and I were more than satisfied with what we paid.

Brought my entire family here and it turned out to be a complete disappointment. At first the waiter made us over order, telling us "its not enough food, its not enough food..." We got waaaaay too much food all thanks to the waiter.

Their dishes are nothing special compared to an ordinary chinese restaurant. In fact, the food and service at red star, kirin, sun sui wah, are better than Chang'ans. EVEN THE PEKING DUCK, which is what they are famous for. All in all, this place is over priced, and the food sucks. My main advice would be to not listen to the waiters, as they have a poor sense of how much food to order...

The food was top notch, inventive but still recognizable as classics. I would order everything we had again and there was so much more to try. We will definitely come again.

We were celebrating my dad's birthday and were disappointed when they closed at 9:30 and never notified us. We were not given everything we ordered as they told us it was too late and kitchen was closed. It was disappointing as everything else was superb.

I read many reviews saying this and should have taken a hint so here goes... Very over priced, food was okay but you could get similar or better food in many other restaurants. It's a beautiful restaurant and the servers were very attentive. The Peking Duck was good but I've had just as good at a fraction of the price so you really do pay for the setting - right on the inlet across from Granville Island. We were told as soon as we sat that the duck comes out 15 minutes after your reservation time which didn't give us any time to order appetizers. Then after the duck, we ordered 2 dishes and were told they were closing early so essentially cut us off. We were fine with that as we weren't too blown away by the food and opted to go else where. It was a pretty hefty bill for a sub-par experience.

This place is amazing, the food was fantastic, the duck is to die for, but everything else we ordered was great (lychee prawns, crispy beef tongue, scallops, roasted beef short rib, lamb buns), definitely the best Chinese food in Vancouver. The service was very friendly, the location is great. It was busy and a bit noisy, but they separate families with kids from guest with no kids, which is a great idea. It is very expensive (we paid $600 for 6 people with one drink each), but it's fine dining and definitely worth it for special occasions.

Bon voyage dinner for a couple of friends. Nine people in our party. Everyone enjoyed the food and the beautiful surrounding and view. Service was excellent. Our waiter and waitress were both attentive, friendly and helpful. The duck was pre-ordered and roasted to perfection. All other dishes were very tasty and presentation was beautiful. All in all a very enjoyable evening for us.

We brought our daughter's family to Chang'an for the delightful roast duck and western Chinese cuisine that we have enjoyed there many times. Our party included two little children - 1-year-old and 4-year-old - for which this elegant restaurant was prepared. They provided a booster seat and a high chair at a secluded table that would not disturb the other diners, yet provided us all with a lovely view and comfort. Another family group with slightly older children were also seated nearby. We love the hot and sour soup and appreciated the server's suggestions for child-friendly menu items.
