About Us

Noodles have a legendary history. People have been slurping noodles in China as far back as 1,000 years ago. In Chinese culture, noodles are renowned because their length represents long life. In this proud tradition, our Legendary Noodle makers brought this handmade noodles to Vancouver since 1997. As a teenager, the restaurant founder Brock Li, learned how to stretch, twirl and slice dough into slender strands.


The restaurant front is filled by an antique wooden waterwheel and bobbing Chinese lanterns. Past a beaded curtain, our compact space is furnished with dark wood tables and benches imported from China. Red silk cushions accent the seats. Other ancient wooden tools and garlands of firecrackers decorate the walls. By the open kitchen where chefs stretch noodles, a set of wooden screens carved with bats and butterflies are backlit by turquoise lights that offers you a slice of China.


Sometimes legends are hidden in the unlikeliest of places, so sauntered up the streets to our noodle making shops where in this case, our legend is made from dough.

拉面历史悠久,在中国最早追溯到4000年前。在中国文化里,拉面因象征长寿而闻名。于1997年我们飞天把手工拉面的传统带到了温哥华。飞天创建人Brock Li在青少年时期,便毅然决定将拉面的文化带给西方。

饭店前台布满古老的木质水车轮和中国传统灯笼。穿过入门的珠帘,呈现眼前的是具中国传统特色的红黑色木质餐桌和配有红色丝绸坐垫的长椅,,,刻有蝙蝠蝴蝶的橱窗,在青绿色灯光照应下带着中国的味道。在现今机器化的时代里,代表人力的古老水车,纺车早已被人所遗忘,也不曾想过我们为什么坚持用手工来完成面条的制作。 但这所有的一切,只是诉说着我们古人过去的传奇。

"legendary noodle made his way up to top ten best valued restaurants around the world!, congrad !!"

"one of the ten top best valued restarurants around world"

“Lovers of the long slurp-worthy pasta can rejoice at the opening of another legendary spot dedicated to the most delicious noodles in town. Large servings at inexpensive prices is a dinner date that even students and busy working families can enjoy together (though I wouldn’t recommend bring your parents along to your date) without sacrificing flavour or their week’s paycheque." – E.J

“There's a curtain of beads in the front door, an antique water wheel hanging from the ceiling and silk cushions in the wooden booths. This is a place where you can actually sit back and relax. With its flour-dusted countertop facing into the restaurant, makes a fine stage for watching the affable Mr. Li magically knead, stretch and spin thick ropes into fine threads.

If you're in the mood for something more robust, try hand-cut noodles with shredded pork and garlic sauce ($8.25).The dish is stir-fried with green and red peppers, celery, suey choy, bean sprouts, dark-bean soy sauce, ginger root and green onions.The hand-cut noodles are also a lot easier to eat than the arm-length soup noodles, which had us soaking the table and nearly splashing the ceiling with ungainly tugs and slurps."

“the result is textbook-perfect: soft and chewy, yet firm enough to hold it shape under the heat of broth or a wok. American visitors to vancouver’s Legendary noodle can watch noodle masters as they waves and pulls noodle dough by hand”

"when it comes to filling  your cakehole without draining your bank account, one of the best place in town is Legendary Noodle(a.k.a the Noodle Legend)"

"Noodles made with flair. At Denman Street’s Legendary Noodle, the specialty is handmade on-site, fresh and tasty. I tried the former and slurped away, while doing Jim Carrey, stretching my neck around my partner to see the master stretching and forming noodles. The starters, pan-fried dumplings were delicious as where the fried pea shoots with garlic, and of course, noodle with lemon garlic green onion sauce"
