They do really good dim sum! People normally go for a a-la-card menu, if you at manchurian ask for dim sum menu or try their proper chinese stir fry!

A night out with the guys from work and only one of us had been here before. For that reason we opted for a sharing banquet. The starters were vey different from the usual offering and absolutely delicious. The prawns were plump and lush. The next course was the traditional duck with pancakes but very tasty. The main courses were... More

My husband and I took a late decision to eat at the Manchurian having heard good reports about the food. However no table was available so we opted for a takeout instead. We phoned in our order and it was waiting for us when we arrived to pick it up. A good sign I thought. As my husband loves aromatic... More

Our first trip here and we weren't disappointed. The food arrived promptly from Banquet "B" menu hot and delicious, Each course arrived just as delicious as the last. Very good value. Staff friendly enough and efficient.

I'm a lover of all food Asian. And for me, the Manchurian is one of the best restaurants in Aberdeen. However (and it's a big however) the service is appalling. Don't expect a smile or a warm greeting as you enter. Instead, the staff and in particular the owners glower at you as if your custom is a burden. But... More

Lovely meal, service was good, although we were asked that we vacate the table by 7pm, which I thought wasn't very nice.

I love Dim Sum, crispy noodles (chowmein) and Ho Fun and the Manchurian never fails to deliver. Not many places do Ho Fun which is really disappointing so this is my go to place when I get the craving.

Food was good, felt exposed in the open plan environment, although the restaurant was full we were served quite quickly and the food was good without being outstanding. We had been there years ago and I do remember it being slightly better, maybe I would try other Chinese restaurants in town before returning.

I didn't have high hopes so didn't get disappointed as this is one of the regular Chinese that I visit. Reason for my review was their friendly service. Service was prompt. They were friendly with our kids so we felt happy. I have been to places were they find kids uneasy. The staff here are very good. If the food... More
