Very nice

We ate there as part of a large group, the staff were lovely and friendly. The menu was quite extensive and everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. The only negative points I have is that there were too many of us round the table where they situated us and it was very difficult to fit all the dishes... read more

What looks like an out of place Chinese in a run down industrial area of Aberdeen opposite a used car lot transpires to be a culinary feast of Chinese dishes. We started with a hot and sour soup which was fairly good followed by the set meal for two. The soup started as a little bit of a bum note... More

We've been here as a large family group on several occasions and the food is consistently good. We always have a large pot (or 4) of green tea and pick food from the dim sum menu. The staff are friendly and efficient and always willing to answer any questions you may have. I've tried so many new chinese dishes here... More

I come here with my family because they offer real authentic Chinese food, just a typical restaurant which offers authentic Chinese food not like the food you get from take-aways in Aberdeen... Nothing special about the food or service if you're Asian but if you are "foreign" you can treated nicely, different menus, plated up nicely etc etc...

Eaten here several times, and have never been disappointed. Great food. Not always the cheapest but certainly the tastiest. Thoroughly endorsed by Chinese friends.

This is easily the best Chinese restaurant in Aberdeen. Unlike most other Asian restaurants the food is not Westernised, it is light and full of flavour; the most authentic we have found locally. We visit here at least one a month and are always delighted by the variety and quality of the food.

This restaurant was recommended to us as the best Chinese in Aberdeen. It was very busy early evening on a Friday so booking is a must. It is not very glamorous inside – a bit basic décor. But when we got there the place was packed and everyone seemed to be having a good time. The food was OK but... More

Take away food is first class, we've had twice in a week. Service is extremely quick, we waited less than 15mins. Staff are very friendly. Highly recommend!!

I visited with my family twice this week, the meal was excellent and very tasty. Starters arrived hot and we shared them all between us, the ribs were tender and tasted very good as well as the satay chicken and pancake rolls. The main meals were just as great, the lemon chicken so tasty and a very large portion and... More
