If you don't want a Westernised version of Chinese food, and really appreciate authentic dim sum, then this place is a must. The staff are incredibly friendly, the food is brilliant and the price is a very pleasant surprise. You can tell how authentic it is by the amount of 'in the know' people who eat there. There are three... More

I came here with high hopes, thinking authentic Chinese and excited about dim sum, we ended up getting severed the same frozen dim as they sell in their supermarket next door, on the menu. For me this was very disappointing, what can i say. Also the dim sum menu is very limited and very much catered to a bland western... More

Been visiting Manchurian with my kids for nearly 5 years now whenever I'm back in Aberdeen, its always busy and yet service is always fast. Food is authentic and extremely satisfying. Recommend the Dim Sum on weekends.

We were looking for somewhere with parking and remembered this place. Hadn't been in years. It used to be really good years ago and I was glad to find nothings changed. Great Food, large portions. We went as a couple but there was a good mixture of couples, groups of adults and families. Plenty room for everyone. Good service. Slightly... More

Decided to visit the manchurian on a saturday night with a couple friends, after hearing such great things about the place i had high hopes! I ordered the salt and chilli wings, which were actually lovely, however my main course, Volcanic Chicken was very very average, it was basically sliced chicken (if even chicken at all, very rubbery) drowned in...

Food is extremely average, had better from local takeaways at half the price. The rice was really dry, the chicken dishes weren't anything special. Found a prawn shell through the chicken dish too. Underneath the urinals there was an empty ice cream tub to catch dripping urine...disgusting. Quite a noisy restaurant too, wouldn't go again.
