This is the best Chinese food I've had in the UK. The prawn and pork dumplings are the closest thing to the real deal since I've been to China. The main courses were well cooked and the chow mein was delicious. Reasonable too.

Love this Chinese. It's attached to a Chinese supermarket so ingredients are fresh and plentiful. Atmosphere is good and staff are pleasant. Very easy to over order. Great for couples and big groups. Location is slightly out with the city centre boundary but very easy to get to and has a car park. My favourite Chinese in Aberdeen by a... More

A lovely meal, though a bit disjointed I delivery. Staff very attentive and friendly. Clientele a mix of European and Chinese, so can be noisy but a lovely family friendly atmosphere.

Many Chinese restaurants in the UK go too far in adapting to the blant taste of the British people. The Manchurian has found the right recipe. Everything is really good. The restaurant is about a mile away from the city centre, but it is definitely worth the walk or the short taxi ride. Reservation is recommended.

The waitress proceeded to put noodles on my friends plate when another waitress came with a telephone and told her there was a... More

I went here for lunch with my friend and we ordered in total three dishes, 叉烧饭,xo酱萝卜糕和奶黄包. That's quite enough, cause the portion of dishes here is very large, I guess a portion of fried rice can serve at least 2 people.:) So does porridges. The price is a bit high but because the proportion is large, you won't feel so... More

Easily the best Chinese dining experience in Aberdeen. Great service with friendly staff. The food is superb in both quality and quantity!! The portion sizes are far better than other places. The quality is also far better. What more could you ask for? If you like Chinese food then you must try the Manchurian.

Thank trvlr15
