This isn't a place that you'll leave hungry! There are 2 different menus. One in English and one in Chinese with English translation. Our group tried from both menus and all was excellent. Serving staff were attentive and well turned out.

The food was by far the best chinese food I've had since moving to Scotland 6 years ago. Absolutely amazing! Wide selection of menus (a la carte, traditional dishes and dim sum) and very good portion size (I couldn't even finish half my main course!!). The price were slightly higher than other chinese restaurants but totally worth it!! Service was... More

Dined here in a large group at a busy lunch time. We noted the large amount of Asian people dining here which I think is a good sign. There is a separate Chinese dim sum menu and they ask if you want regular cutlery or chopsticks. Food very reasonably priced and many dishes to choose from. We selected a wide... More

Been here many times and never lets me down. Great food and great value with the authenticity many other Chinese restaurants fail to achieve. Definitely worth a visit!

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 enjoyed it but haven't... 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
