There are 3 sit down authentic Cantonese restaurants in Aberdeen and Yangtze River is my personal favorite. It is no more expensive than The Manchurian but the dishes are truly Hong Kong style and delicious. Servers and owner also spoke Cantonese. The Pi Pa Tofu (fried tofu stuffed with fish) was the best I've ever had. Will come back to... More

It's probably about 40 years since we were last in the Yangtze River and we decided on a sentimental return during a weekend in Aberdeen. It has changed very little from the way I remembered it but this is not a negative! The food was terrific - very tasty and piping hot, and the staff were very attentive. I can't... More

We were in Aberdeen last weekend and visited The Yangtze River as we always do. The food is very nice. The staff are friendly and helpful and the service is quick. The decor of this restaurant is quite dated and could do with a spruce up. All in all we would highly recommend this Chinese restaurant.

Visited today for lunch. Very fairly priced at 2 courses for £8.99. I had the chicken and sweetcorn soup and there was a generous helping and it was tasty. We both opted for the honey chilli chicken and it was lovely. With a drink each the bill was just under £25. I have been visiting this restaurant since the 1960's... More

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.
