The quality did not match the price and the service was the worst part. The food was good don’t get me wrong but not worth what they charge. Not worth the treatment either.

Chang’an is my family’s favourite restaurant for having pecking duck. Service and food quality always keep high level. We will definitely go more often.

Very pricey food, which I was aware of, however the flavor and the display is pretty much the same as a normal Chinese restaurant, non of the dishes I ordered impressed me. I can spend 1/3 of the price to get the same quality food. Do not recommend and won’t come back again.

You can choose two makes of duck. If you choose the duck soup, they only serve you a tofu bean soup which is made ahead. You can't find any parts of your duck even a piece of meat in this soup.

Need to improve on cocktail (we ordered old fashion and whit russian).

Peking duck while taste awesome but is quiet expensive as the soup was a small bowl for each person. Other comparable pace that charge similar amount gives a bit pit of duck soup.

Overall I still recommend this place as the food taste really good.

We ordered Peking duck for that night. It was not fresh and the meat was dry, skin wasn’t crispy. The service wasn’t good at all, staff wasn’t friendly. Waste time and money. I would rather go to Mott 32 for this price.

The service was very attentive but it felt like the waiter marked us for Gringos and, by urging the "most popular" dishes, steered us to a very boring meal that was a mockery of our whole reason for being in Vancouver - to taste exciting and authentic Chinese food. To make up for it, the next night we took a taxi all the way to Richmond and had a fantastic, fun meal for half the price, including the taxi ride.

Food was great! Especially the Peking duck, we loved it!

They charge $28 for a pod of tea, which is ridiculous.

The portion is quite big and we ended up ordering way too much for 2 people, wish the waitress had given us some headsup.

A very unpleasant experience although food was fairly good! Our booking was for the 1st seating (5:30 to 7:30). Before and during the meal, we were reminded multiple times that we were only given two hours to eat. While for a party of eight, including family and friends coming all the way from Coquitlam for a special occasion, and a table full of dishes, and a variety of drinks and wine, it just seemed too rushed. I would not recommend Chang'an for any special occasions or celebrations.

It was voted the best duck restaurant in Vancouver however the duck only tasted mediocre as it came out luke warm and lacking flavour. I've definitely had better ducks in another restaurant. Service was poor. My friend was allergic to spice so we pick the only thing on the menu that didn't list chili on it and it ended up with a dish covered in chili. When we confronted the server, he just looked at my friend weird and said sorry but didn't do any service recovery. I'm not allergic to spicy good but I wouldn't treat other people's allergies lightly. Definitely won't come back

1. does not allow order two ducks even we have 12 people, why? do you think there is enough of duck to go around for 12 people? use your common sense
2. last two guests arrived and stood there for more than 10 mins and the waitress can't set up table and chairs
3. Manager insult the host in front of guest
4. Rude attitude
5. does not speak proper English

The Peking experience lacked taste. The 2nd course for the duck was missing the duck meat and replaced by tofu. The soup took very long to be served and it was served at the near the end of the meal
