We've visited the Yangtze regularly over the years. The food and service used to be fantastic. Unfortunately through changes of ownership the restaurant has declined. Certainly average now. We went on a busy Sunday lunchtime (busy but not hectic). We had a good range of dim sum and ho fun (beef and seafood). Good size portions and good prices but... More

Food was nice, and reasonably more authentic than the average Chinese restaurant in Aberdeen, but the whole décor of the place lets it down a bit.

Visited with 10 friends. The food was OK but far too much was deep fried which I just don't really like. Overall it was just okay and no more.

Staying at the Travelodge opposite for a couple of nights my friends and I decided to try the local Chinese restaurant. It was a late Thursday evening and to our surprise the place was relatively empty. Our initial impressions was that wasn't a good sign. However, we decided to give it a go and looked through the menu to make... More

I arrived, with my wife, at 9.45pm on Wednesday. The doors were open, the ligghts were on and there was a board outside showing opening times. I cant remember if it said until 11 or 12 o'clock. We went inside and although there were people sitting eating were told that the restaurant was closing early as they had decided to... More

Good place to come for a snack (Chicken feet, Thai or pancakes, spring rolls) or chinese noodles. But if your here for a evening meal there is so much to choose from on the menu

We hadn't visited the Yangste River, Aberdeen for many years, and had actually forgotten just had good it was. Nothing particularly fancy inside, but the food was excellent. We had a reservation for 6.30pm and by 7pm the restaurant was very busy. Would definitely recommend booking in advance to guarantee a table. Food was served quickly on lovely hot plates,... More
