Description: The restaurant at Aberdeen’s branch of Tiger Tiger, one of the newest in the country, offers a tantalizing Asian fusion menu that also makes room for many traditional Scottish favourites over an extensive a la carte or set menu to select from. Situated at the east end of Union Street on Shiprow, next door to the Vue Cinema (so perfect for a pre or post-film bite), Tiger Tiger is famous for its stylish cocktails, and Aberdeen’s branch manages to fit in five bars and a club under the same roof as the restaurant. But dishes such as Katsu chicken curry, stir fried udon noodles or the Tiger beer (what else?) battered fish are intriguing enough to ensure your mind stays on the food.

Visited for our Christmas meal on Saturday 14th December. Arrived before our allotted time slot but had to wait well over half an hour before going to our table. Everyone had pre-ordered their meal to be told we had to order it again, server didn't even know what was on the menu!! The quality of the crackers on the table really summed up the whole meal (cheap). Waited ages for our starter which was very basic, turkey for the main was a very small portion obviously bought in and heated up on the premises surrounded by lots of veg and swimming in gravy (total insult). Christmas pudding was another ready meal but half the size. The whole fiasco lasted 2 - 3 hours we all just wanted to get out of the place. Manager heard our complaints and we managed to get a free drink. You dont get much for £27 but expected much more than this. This is probably one of the worst meals that I've ever had and will never go back again!!! SHAMBLES

Visited Tiger Tiger for works Christmas party on Friday 13th.
great night spoiled by
poor service - 3 hours to serve 3 courses!
Poor food - worst meal I have had in Aberdeen - ordered turkey and got dried out rubbery chicken with soggy vegetables and swimming in gravy !
poor service - staff were not interested in our complaints , and blamed us for being late. This was despite hostesses on the door when we arrived about 30 minutes before our allotted time .
Evening was only a success because of the excellent company and great atmosphere amongst our staff.
Pity really as the venue could have provided a great night out.
WILL NOT BE BACK !

What an amazing night we had at Tiger Tiger for our Christmas party! We opted for the buffet option and had a private area to ourselves. This came with our own bar (with three people serving, all of whom were knowledgable regarding cocktails and recommendations) and DJ.

Drinks were reasonably priced, cocktails in particular were well presented and tasty and the buffet was lovely.

Staff were friendly and helpful, and the whole evening was well organised.

All in all a fantastic effort from Tiger Tiger and I can't wait to go back!

When looking to get a lining in your stomach when you know you're in for a night of shots, champagne and grey goose, tiger tiger is great. We went on a Saturday night but it was deadly quiet, I think people forget the restaurant here as are distracted by union square or fancy Jamie's Italian. But the new burger menu is great value. The burgers are delicious, with great tasting sides and the cheese is melted perfectly. My mum isn't a big lover of burgers but she loved hers. Onion rings were crisp and not processed rubbish. The 50's swing music created a great diner atmosphere.
