We were visiting family in Aberdeen and fancied a Chinese. We'd driven past the Manchurian a few times so decided to give it a try. Plenty of parking at the rear of the premises accessible by turning left at the traffic lights (heading down Causewayend) and then head towards the school. We chose a steamed Dim Sum starter which was... More

The place was full, but we did not need to book and the staff were very helpful. It is a Chinese restaurant but also does dim sum but we kept to the normal menu. Crispy duck to start, bit dry but tasty. All the mains were very tasty and good sized portions. Very clean place, good staff and next door... More

We had visitors from Norway to entertain and decided to try a old favourite the Manchurian Chines food at its best, we all chose separate meals and shared Chinese style my guests were suitably impressed especial his wife who confessed she was a chef back home. Their service was excellent and you could taste every thing was freshly done and... More

We took the grand parents to the Manchurian yesterday. It is becoming a bit of a tradition. By far the best Chinese restaurant in Aberdeen, which showed by how busy it was. Great menu and great quality of food with an efficient service. If we don't feel like going out we have ordered take-out from here before. And for something... More

I went on a Sunday for lunch and the line was out the door, so I figured I should wait. It was worth it.

Visited today for the first time, not impressed at all, service was slow and restaurant wasn't particularly busy, when we did get ordered, the waiter seemed to be quite unaware of the contents of a dish and had to go and ask the manager if it was possible to get a dish without sauce. When starters arrived they were fairly... More

Always passed this restaurant in the car and wanted to go for dinner having heard good things... Finally went for dinner tonight and it was even better than my expectations! Great great food, and so much of it as well. The staff were kind enough to box everything up for us when I asked as we could not eat any... More

Finding a location for a family group of 11 to eat out is never an easy task - but it would be difficult to beat The Manchurian. A Chinese dinner all sat round a big round table sharing dishes from a revolving choice of Chinese dishes is a great formula . The staff were friendly - the selection of starters... More

We tried the dim sum at lunchtime today. The place was packed and we had a 45 minute wait for a table. The congee (thick rice based soup) was delicious and the portion size fit for a sumo wrestler (sorry, I can't think of the Chinese equivalent!). Everything else was pretty average. The staff were efficient but almost too much... More
