Been here a number of times, and the food and service has always been exceptional. So much choice and variety, something for everyone. Would recommend to others.

I visited this restaurant on Sunday night with my boyfriend. I was really disappointed. We paid about £30 for 2 main courses, 2 sides and 2 drinks. The food was very tasteless. I ordered a beef curry. The beef was very pale, over cooked and tasteless (not sure if it had been lying around in a buffet somewhere as it... More

The interior decoration of this restaurant screams china, however the food has been somewhat of a let down in recent times. Offers all british/chinese classics.

I believe the Yangtze River is the longest running Chinese restaurant in Aberdeen. With food this good I am not surprised. We were a large party, and we decided to let the staff pick a range of starters and mains. Everything I tried was delicious. The staff were friendly and courteous, and we did not have long to wait for... More

We happened upon this restaurant on a very chilly January 1st, I wasn't convinced, because the outside looks quite small, but my husband was, so in we went. He was right, it was a really good choice and actually once we got downstairs it was a very large and obviously popular place to eat. We ordered a selection from their... More

We visited with a party of 9. The restaurant may not be the most modern but the food is absolutely excellent. We tried a number of dishes as part of our 4 course dinner and everything was of a very high standard. Stand out for me was the seafood dish which contained perfectly cooked scallops, squid and enormous prawns. The... More

On a spur of the moment desire for a chinese meal we went to the Yangtze River Aberdeen on asking what was the special today it turned out to be fresh scallops steamed in their shells with garlic and chilli followed by lobster with spring onion and ginger with noodles we could not manage a sweet after this feast.
