My husband booked this for my birthday meal. We had never been there before so didn't know what to expect.thevrestaurant had just opened for evening meals and we were the first to arrive. We were shown to our table promptly. Order taken and we didn't have long to wait for our food. The meal was excellent. The restaurant filled up... More

Really friendly and helpful staff. Menu as expected but a few surprises and cooked really well. Would love to go back and try the authentic dim sum menu it looks amazing. This is the most authentic and best Chinese restaurant in Aberdeen

We have been regulars at the Manchurian for a number of years. Good quality food and portion sizes. The staff are attentive and this is without doubt the best Chinese in Aberdeen. The Dim Sum is excellent and they also do take-away. Highly recommend it

This restaurant was a great find after a couple of disappointing meals in Aberdeen. Starters were a great size portion and mains (Hong Kong sweet and sour king prawns) were very tasty and plentiful. Great quality and value for money.

Ate here last night with one of my uni societies. Have to say it helped that some of our budget was going towards the meal as it wasn't cheap - I had the crispy shredded chilli beef, which was £9.50 without rice. That being said, the portions are generous and the dish was excellent. The restaurant itself is bright and... More

Tried the dimsum menu at Manchurian today. Staff very friendly and offered good advice on dishes. Went for a few favorites (crispy squid and dumplings lovely) Tried thew curried beef belly and congee. The belly turned out to be tripe which was interesting. Wouldn't have it again but it was ok. The congee was a rice porridge with 100 year... More

We were visiting family in Aberdeen and fancied a Chinese. We'd driven past the Manchurian a few times so decided to give it a try. Plenty of parking at the rear of the premises accessible by turning left at the traffic lights (heading down Causewayend) and then head towards the school. We chose a steamed Dim Sum starter which was... More

The place was full, but we did not need to book and the staff were very helpful. It is a Chinese restaurant but also does dim sum but we kept to the normal menu. Crispy duck to start, bit dry but tasty. All the mains were very tasty and good sized portions. Very clean place, good staff and next door... More

We took the grand parents to the Manchurian yesterday. It is becoming a bit of a tradition. By far the best Chinese restaurant in Aberdeen, which showed by how busy it was. Great menu and great quality of food with an efficient service. If we don't feel like going out we have ordered take-out from here before. And for something... More
