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.

Outstanding. Be sure to book the top notch roasted duck. Also order the black cod - it’s served in a spicy broth and was brilliant.

At last, a nice dining environment for Chinese cuisine. Good parking space, friendly staff and most dishes are true to its authentic flavor. If you are missing those upscale dining experience in China while growing up, this is the place for you :)

The Peking duck was outstanding. Too much for the 2 of us to finish. The service was excellent and the view of the water from the patio made for a very special evening.

Horrible service
Maybe because we were not Asian
Food service was very poor
They forgot our order
I asked to speak to manager
They turned off their led lighted name tags
They “apologized “ but did not adjust bill

One of the BEST authentic Chinese restaurant in town. Try the Peking duck or the litchee prawns, you will be enchanted. . Add the view, just opposite Grndville Market and you will be delighted, all for a very reasonable price at this level

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.

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.
