I did delivery twice. I will likely fall back on this as my go-to for great noodles and Chinese comfort food. This place reminds me of the great noodle houses in the old chinatown in Toronto where I went to University. All noodles are pulled by hand and there is NO MSG in the food. The dumplings are a marvel... More

We found the food was pricey and really not that flavourful. Really just a meh meal but filled us up. The online ordering was very confusing and they stated they would call to confirm receiving it but they never did. Was across the street from our hotel so convenient but wouldn't go back.

We had 6 dishes for less than $60.00. They bring scissors to cut the noodle dishes. The fried noodles with BBQ pork was great... More

There are people I know who like to always eat at the same establishment. It is bewildering to one who likes variety and particularly baffling when the food is mediocre and the ambiance so 1970. You know the energy is soured when the waiter makes you feel you aren't ordering fast enough and you feel bad because you linger over... More

I had the fried beef cutting noodles and some (too many!!) pan fried pork dumplings. Allegedly, hands down, the best in all of North America. You won't be disappointed.

I eat here once a week at least. The hand made noodles and dumplings are silky. The variety of soups along with the classic dragging, pushing and cutting noodles options are awesome. I love the tofu with chicken broth and dragging noodles. I always order the pork and chive dumplings. The eggplant in a hot pot is really good. They... More

I should have ordered the noodle dishes...at least I read that it was good. But I ordered their beef roll, which was a huge disappointment. The dish arrived pretty fast, within 10 mins I would say. When I bited into it, I noticed that the food was cold. Not good. The taste? Well, I can only taste the onion...those veggies... More

Walking along Broadway, I noticed this restaurant with a trip advisor decal. Since, it was shortly after 7 pm, I felt I should possible get some dinner. Having seen so many oriental places to eat I chose this one. Well let me tell you that the food was very ordinary and in fact not tasty at all. I have tasted... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
