As good as it gets in Aberdeen

We have been to a few of Chinese restaurants over the years but have shied away from them in the UK as our experiences have been fairly consistently poor. We decided to try "The Manchurian" for dinner on advice from our son. We have been to this restaurant for Dim sum in the past and thoroughly... read more

This is about as authentic as you can get in Aberdeen. They don't over sweeten the food, something which is very common in some of the other restaurants in town. For £65 we were completely full and our taste buds were satisfied. This did not include any drinks other than tea. Extremely impressed with the bok choi as it was... More

We had a pleasant dinner this evening. Tasty, well presented and plentiful portions. I particularly liked the Hot Pot Seafood Cassarole. Main dishes easily enough for a least two to share. The staff were friendly and attentive. I shall definitely visit again.

Everything about Manchurian is first class. Food is outstanding, Chinese Three Roast is as good as anywhere on earth. Very accommodating with fussy children. Surroundings comfy and bright. Service is attentive but not overwhelming.

My wife and I took my parents here last might for a meal and we were not disappointed. one think to know if you visit here is that they have two menu's, the a-la carte which has the usual food that you order from most Chinese restaurants and a traditional Chinese menu which as it suggests has a much more...

This is one restaurant we've been meaning to try for a long time. Now we have & we will definitely be returning. Service was prompt & the food was excellent.

Visited The Manchurian based on excellent reviews here on Trip Advisor. Had high hopes that it would be a hidden gem, one of those cult places with a fun atmosphere and great food. Inside of the restaurant was very bright, and somewhat reminiscent of a motorway services cafe, totally devoid of any intimacy. That's ok, have had great food in... More

We enjoy our dim sum and we're delighted to find this restaurant in Aberdeen which is now regular place for this type of food. The service is good and very plenty of parking and room inside the restaurant. We'll be back!

Words are too little to express the fantastic experience. Food has always been lovely and cooked at its best. Service spot on and exceeds expectations with every visit. This place is my first pick when it comes to dining out. Worth every penny.
