    Peking duck was delicious with chef slice duck meat and skin at our table, what a show! Other dishes were Lycee prawn with sweet and sour, little lamb buns, green beans with egg plant, they were all scrumptious. Beautiful view of the inlet and Burrard bridge. We have an enjoyable evening and lots of left over for 3 of us.

    It was a wonderful experience. My in-laws say Chang An offered the best tasting Peking Duck they have tasted outside of China. Even better than in Hong Kong. The other vegetable dishes were prepared with good presentation and ingredients. We also enjoyed noodle and fried rice dishes. The host and hostess were extremely friendly and caring. They helped took some excellent photos for our memory. Thumb up for Chang An Vancouver.

    The food was pretty good but the portions were quite small. We ordered the Qing Style fish maw which just tasted like a jellyfish cold appetizer. The stir fried green beans and egg plant were really crispy and tasty. And the truffle crystal prawns with hand made noodles was absolutly delicious, but for a family style sharing dish I was disappointed that it only came with 3 prawns and between 4 people we each got to sample maybe 2 to 3 noodles each. Finally my main reason for coming here was to try the famous peking duck. The duck was perfectly cooked and really crispy but it was also very plain. After eating here i felt like i was still craving peking duck so I'll have to find a better place to get my fix. As a one time splurge I'd say give this place a try if you are feeling boujie, but i probably wouldn't go a 2nd time.

    We were here celebrating my birthday. Mentioned some dietary restrictions such as one of us being diabetic. Waiter mentioned they will try to reduce sugar which was great. But when we ordered he never steered us away from the smoked fish appetizer which was very sweet and did not place the sauce in the side for the crispy beef tongue. Also, ordered the gourd chicken which came out very pretty but definitely over cooked. We also ordered the steamed fish which came out a bit bland. Overall a bit underwhelmed for the price they are charging.

    Sat outside to a beautiful sunset sky over the water, had the Peking duck which was delicious. We ordered another tofu and abalone sauce dish which was tasty but the sauce was too thick for my fiance's liking, more fusion than authentic. Wine list was decent, found a nice Bordeaux which we enjoyed. Service was great no complaints. You definitely are paying for the location though.

    This is a restaurant needs you to finish your food in a short period of time. I spent about $500 but need to swallow all the dishes within 2 hours. Luckily I wasn’t late in returning the table to the restaurant as I was reminded time and time again by the restaurant manager. The restaurant manager did a thorough job! Well done! The food was not bad as a FAST FOOD restaurant but surely an expensive one!

    Booked the round table a week ago. Ended up they gave it to the group in front of us. Dinner began with a bad start. Pre-ordered the duck. Not the first time having it. Nothing special. Not worth the $90 price point. Especially if you want them to cook the carcass, you need to pay extra money. Appetizer ordered the smoked fish and qing style fish maw. The former was good but the latter was so-so. Also had the porker belly slider; had better ones for a lower price located on kingsway/Joyce. Mains were rack of lamb, truffle with beef tendon, stir fry lychee prawns, and sauteed pea tip with garlic. Lamb was okay but came cold. The tendon was overcooked and became pieces of goo. The best were the lychee prawns and the veggie, which were average for the price. I think the worst was the wagyu fried rice. I don't know if they actually added oil into stir frying the rice, but if they were actually using wagyu, then that is really unnecessary. Every bite I took, it's just super oily. I think that dish can be split into 5 bowls. But I had 1/3 of a bowl and I couldn't eat it anymore. For dessert, had the red bean cake and durian milk cake. Red bean cake I could hardly find any red bean. The durian milk cake taste like soured milk. Sorry but my tab came out to be $550 (tax and tips included) for 5 person and it's definitely not worth it.

    No doubt the roasted duck is the best in metro Vancouver. Other dishes are also tasty, we ordered beef, chicken, fish, tofu. The restaurant’s location is awesome, harbor view and easy parking. The price is a little bit high but worthy for value. If you love roasted duck and northwest style Chinese food, highly recommended.

    Wonderful food and excellent service! Patio was very comfortable on a cooler night with heaters and we were offered blankets too. The duck was amazing.... 3 courses - Crispy skin, meat with pancakes, then we had the bones fried with cumin. We ordered bok choy on the side - was more than enough for 2, we brought food home with us.

    Service and food are good as usual. Because of patio seating due to covid, it was very cold and windy even though the heater was on, we could not feel the heat. So we have to rush to finish our meal and packed most of the food home because it was really cold.

    Great atmosphere just food is a bit spicy for me but i like small plates...service is not that great for an expensive looking place that should be improve. U want to make people feel their money is worth it for food service and the whole experience. Then they will want to tip more and remember this place.

    Food was good, value is low compared to the price they charge. We were charged about $700 for lunch for 5 adults for meal that normally cost about 200-300 for same level restaurant. Food was tasty but definitely not worth $700. I would give 5 star if they charged $200. The scenery is definitely not worth $500 extra dollar.
