In comparison to other Western restaurants in Qingdao, Canvas offers a good selection of choices. I think the important take-away here is that your overall opinion on the food itself may be highly dependent on your time spent in China. When I first visited, after having lived months in another Chinese city, eating only Chinese food, I have to say... More

Canvas is located in the shopping plaza that extends from the Olympic Sailing Center northward into the city. The street address at which the restaurant is a bit confusing because the restaurant is actually located about a block off the street listed as the address. It's a short walk from the point where Hong Kong Middle Road crosses the shopping... More

I've eaten here several times now and each time has been great. The staff are very good and the food is well priced. My last meal here was the baby back ribs which were sensational.. Cooked to perfection.. Will definitely be going back for these again..

I ate at the Canvas with a friend, the food was very good with a good choice on the menu. My friend asked for her burger to be cooked Medium rare and that is exactly how they cooked it. The only problem we found was that is was rather a slow service. For a restuarant that was very quiet that... More

Almost all of the meals I've had in China on my trip have been fabulous but I was looking forward to a break during our planned visit to Canvas. Don't let the rather plain exterior fool you - this is a modern and very nicely designed spot offering good food. The large upstairs dining room is broken up into several... More

Overloaded menu with inconsistent dishes. I went already 3 times hoping it would get better but it didn't. Burgers are very heavy, and patties are too spiced and not well cooked. It's more of a fusion American Asian than American, and the fusion doesn't work well. Wonderful setting though, but the food has to improve with more focused menu choices... More

Not only of course, but the place deserves a visit. Great food, kindness of Joe and his wife. Only the service is a bit slow, but quite common in China!

It was surprisingly good food. We order shrimp pasta, sausages, and pasta with bits of steak on it. The steak on pasta is very soft. Beer is fresh and the pineapple Daiqiri cocktail taste like ice cream with alcohol. Im so happy we got a chance to dine here.
