I've been coming here for about 3 years now. The food is good, and the helpful owner/waitress help choose the food options for you. I am gluten intolerant and I was so happy when she said that I can have most of their dim sum dishes as its gluten free (except the steamed buns). The vegetarian olive and pine nuts... More

Just a mediocre restaurant with no ambience. My server did not smile or feel warm and welcoming. In fact, the first thing she said when I entered was "for how many people?", which took me aback. She text messaged the whole time and seemed bored. Her heart isn't it and she definitely doesn't love her job. She served me lukewarm... More

The staff are very polite and the food is delicious. We always order the spicy drumsticks. The sauce is amazing! Many of the other dishes we tried were very tasty too. I would like to try everything on the menu.

I had the dim sum. The food was okay, but I think they could do a lot better. Also, the dim sum is cooked when you order so it could be a while before you get your food. In other dim sum places, the food is already cooked and you just pick what you want from a tray or table.

We wanted to try a Chinese vegetarian/vegan restaurant, did our research and 3G had some good reviews ... So we thought we would give it a try. It was dinner time on a Saturday and the restaurant was empty. That should have been our first clue. First impression was the restaurant was very sparsely furnished, as in empty walls, empty...

I visit 3G at least once a week. I have my favourite dishes and the owners are very welcoming and generous. The prices are amazingly affordable (especially off the lunch dim sum menu) and I can't recommend it highly enough. They now have a website so I often visit and plan what I'm going to order ahead of time.

We have travelled the world and enjoyed many vegetarian meals. I personally enjoy the Chinese style fake meat dishes, especially sweet and sour pork. This restaurant had one of the best sweet and sour chicken dishes I have tasted. The fake meat was perfectly cooked, battered but not doughy, chewy and not soggy. The sweet and sour sauce was not...

It was really strange to be served dishes with names like chicken drumsticks and pork patties, have the same texture and flavours as their two- and four-legged counterparts, but made completely of vegetable protein. All the dishes were delicious, and we never felt that we were being deprived of meat.

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighbourhood Profile
Shaughnessy
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
