Read reviews on this restaurant before visiting son at University of Aberdeen for his birthday. He'd heard good things so booked a table. Well worth the visit. Food was freshly cooked and very tasty.

We visited Aberdeen over the new year. We found this restaurant on trip advisor and were delighted to find it open on New years day. We had a very good meal and the service was very good. We would go back.

This was our first visit to the Yangtze after being away from the city for a couple of years. We were delighted to find that the food was even better than we remembered. The menu is fairly similar to most Chinese restaurants in the UK but the cooking and the quality of the food are superb. Don't be deterred by... More

Went for a meal on hogmanay and wasn't dissappinted one bit! Hadn't been for a few years but it was just as I remembered. Lovely atmosphere and great food! Location is perfect too as it is central, we just had a 5 minutes walk to the theatre

The wonton soup is some of the best I've ever had! The pan fried ravioli is also a real treat. If you're into east coast style Chinese food, don't skip this spot.

Quite simply the best Cantonese food I have had outside Guangdong province/ Hong Kong. Not the best entry it has to be said but persevere the food and decor is worth it.

Sad to see that there were only two other tables occupied as the quality and quantity of food was excellent and the place deserves to be much busier. The starter platter was good and the honey chilli prawns was a stand out dish. Also rare to get a decent egg fried rice!

Very cosy (despite being quite big and in a basement), nice atmosphere, centre of town. Friendly service. Great for dim sum lunch (on any day of the week). Can have lunch quite late as well. Our favourite meal on a Saturday / Sunday lunch time. Would suit bigger groups with kids as well (large round tables for groups).

Thank Judith M
