Above average, worth a visit

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.

.... definitely won't be the last time we eat here. Walked in on a Saturday night after checking TA for best Chinese restaurant in Aberdeen. Managed to find our long lost ABC sweet sauce in the attached supermarket before heading in. Asked the waitress for recommendations from the Chinese menu and we shared two starters - ribs and pork dumplings... More

I come here often with my partner. Brilliant food. Always have to ask for the Chinese menu though. Service is great with polite waitresses and waiters.
