The food is very pricy . Some food itself is not really authentic. It wold be great if they can provide more choices with a reasonable price.

Overall it was a good experience. The food is decent but I was not fully satisfied. I think the food can be better if the price is this high.

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 lately. 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

Over priced. Over rated. Under done. Pretentious. We booked a table for 4 for dinner and still waited 20minites whilst what looked like “their Chinese buddies” got seated first. We ordered quite a lot of dishes. The tofu vegetable broth was very good, as were the pork riblets. Other dishes were just average considering the price and pompous descriptions. Talk about setting a false expectation. $28 for Chinese tea is perhaps a bit too much. The saving grace were the wait staff who were very attentive.

Went there for a birthday celebration. Got a couple calls from restaurant for confirmation from a pleasant lady. The duck was being served shortly after we were seated and was delicious. They were happy to take photos for our table and even gave us a happy birthday card with a print out of a the photo (guessing they must have a photo printer in the back). Excellent experience overall.

Vegetarian dishes were terrific but we were disappointed by the lamb brisket. Too fatty and difficult to chew. Too bad. Was a very good experience until the meat arrived. Very expensive .

We were a party of 9 celebrating a friends neices bar passing. We had reservations at 8pm on the night of the fireworks. The food was excellent except they ran out of rice!!! Can you believe a Chinese restaurant running out of rice! The ambiance was excellent especially catching a glimpse of the fireworks. After dinner we wanted to order dessert but the kitchen crew went to watch the fireworks! The service was great. The food was expensive but you pay for the quality of the food and location of the restaurant. They offer free parking which is a bonus being downtown. I would go back to this place for special occasions for sure!

The restaurant has a great view and is well laid out. The Beijing duck is very good but the rest of our food was lacklustre. The service was very poor. They are trying but missing the boat. We were ignored for long periods of time.

Good food. Duck was cooked perfectly. Everything about it was executed well leaving an amazing rendered crispy skin with juicy meat. Come hungry and with a big group (4+). This place is made to share for their various dishes. The tofu in abalone sauce is always a favorite along with the biang biang noodle. If you like spice then the hot pot shrimp is great as well. We got the crispy beef tongue which was probably the weakest dish and very much over priced at $28. Big servings so you really don't have to order too much. Which is good because this place is EXPENSIVE. Or that's just my Asian standard for Asian food. Guess your paying for the ambiance as well. Service just does not cut it for a place like this. Sorry but it feels like part time students awkwardly rushing food to the table. Of course not all of them. But a little more refinement to their serving would go a long way as well explaining the dishes.

Over all a good meal. Bring a group and bring your wallet! Pricey, but it's a fancy place.

This is our 3rd time to eat at Chang'An. Food was still good but our waitress was really pushing us to order more, which is really unnecessary! The service, to be honest, left a really bad impression. Hopefully they can improve.

Its location on Vancouver's waterfront is beautiful, and the food is adequate, small portions, but nicely prepared. Finding good Chinese cuisine in Vancouver is not difficult, however. There are many restaurants throughout the metropolitan area with much better food and more amiable service. This restaurant is known for their preparation of Peking Duck, requiring an order 72 hours prior to dining. We did so, and this was confirmed by the restaurant earlier in the day of our reservation. Within 30 minutes of our arrival, we were informed of a "problem" -- that the duck would be served just over an hour later. After an hour and twenty minutes, there was neither the Peking Duck nor a manager with an apology. We did notice a table near us being served duck at the time we would have expected ours.

This type of behavior in a restaurant is not acceptable in China or in North America.

The live black cod fish was not cooked well, not worth its price at all. The noodle and salad was really good.
