Dim Sum to die for

This is a hidden gem in Aberdeen. You wouldn't think anything of it from the exterior. Nor the interior to be fair. It's unremarkable in appearance but you are there for the food and this delivers bug time. I have eaten here on many occasions and without fail the food is delicious. My personal... read more

We've been here a few times as a family now (6 people) and it has always been a great hit with all of us! The staff are lovely and friendly and make great recommendations if your spoilt for choice by the menu.

Nice chinese food selection. Very impressed with the Lemon Chicken, will be back soon! A bit overpriced for being a chinese but I guess you pay for location and service which is good

We went with friends for an evening meal. It was our first visit and we were impressed with the authentic Chinese decor and the fact that there were several Chinese families eating there. The food was delicious, very good value and the service first class. We shall definitely be returning

I personally regularly travel with friends up to Aberdeen just for Yangtze! Excellent food choice and very oriental. Lovely staff as well! They did help us solve a lot of our questions when we visited. I would highly recommend everyone to visit and start their day in Aberdeen with a lunch at this resturant.

If Wok Wok got the award for best Chinese take-away Yangtze River would have to get the award for best dine in! Although the entrance and dining room feel a little dated the food and service are to be judged all on there own. Great food which all came quickly. Complimentary prawn crackers whilst you wait.

Do not be put off by the entrance as once inside you will find a nice comfortable restaurant and great food at a reasonable price.

Had not been here for many years and anticipated a lovely anniversary meal. Alas not so..cold satay skewers on bed of insipid lettuce and watered down satay sauce. Cold plates for main meant food quickly chilled and nothing memorable about either dish. Sullen waitress did not help the ambience. Only positive was the house wine. Will not be returning in...
