Long overdue return

Went with two friends who had been recently. They were full of praise for the food and were not wrong. Choice was wonderful. We had menu A for three. Mixed starters were very tasty. Four main courses to share. Lemon chicken was amazing but all were very good. Taste buds exploding. This place has... read more

not what you expect when you go down the stairs as there is a musty smell - friendly staff and great food, we were stuffed after the starter.

As visitors to Aberdeen this was our first visit to the Yangtze River Restaurant. The entrance is not very inviting but having read such good reviews about the food we decided to give it a go. We were made very welcome by the staff who were friendly and attentive. The dim sum was excellent as was the chicken and cashew... More

Over 50 years ago there were not many Chinese restaurants around in the north-east and eating out in one was almost an adventure. Aa a young student then, the Yangtze River was my first choice (3 course lunch for five shillings = 25p!) because the food was good and, that has not changed. Neither has the decor!

Mention this restaurant and you get the same response: "is it still there??" Descend from street level and travel back in time. This is the Tardis of Chinese restaurants. It feels like we first visited in 1898 and im sure the waiter is the same one we had then! The most important thing is that you get great food, so... More

Dined here years ago and felt the need to go back, always had good memories of the food. We were not disappointed, one felt it was the best sweet and sour they had ever had the mussels were to die for. The staff were lovely, so attentive and made the eating experience such a pleasure. Would highly recommend this place.
