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.

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 :)

They have the best Peking Duck in Vancouver! This is the only place offers nearly the original Peking duck. Other dishes are great as well! My favorite: mushroom tofu, xi an cold noodles, Peking duck, Chang an vegetable stew, and hulu chicken!

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

Best Peking Duck in Vancouver. The skin is crispy and juicy, and meat are very tender. Also recommend to order their mushroom tofu and crispy veal and Chang an mixed veggies!!
