Visited here after a show at the Tivoli Theatre Food was excellent, lovely and fresh despite being 9.30pm Great atmosphere and wasn't too busy/noisy Will definitely be back next time in Aberdeen

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).

We first visited the Yangtze River forty five years ago and for us this was a trip down memory lane. The decor has been freshened up since then but the entrance is still by a long uninviting corridor off Bridge Street before you descend a few steps into the main dining area. If you overlook the rather drab entrance you... More

If you are after an authentic Chinese meal in Aberdeen you will need to look someplace else. Yangtze offers very average dishes that are toned down and void of any real flavour to suit the average dull European taste buds. The dim sum sampler was nothing to write home about and similar quality to what you would expect in any... More

Great for dim sum, best in Aberdeen for authentic Chinese food. Weekend lunch times are best. Right in the middle of the city. Staff are so friendly. Worth a visit.

I really enjoyed my meal here with my family. I chose the Chinese curry which wasn't too spicy, in fact I would rather it be more spicy but nice all the same. Pretty expensive though. For a table of 5 of us it cost just over £150. Only 2 of them had alcoholic drinks, and only 2 each at that.... More

This has to be the best Chinese restaurant in Aberdeen. The food is absolutely beautiful, lots to choose from and well presented. Service was friendly and quick. If going at the weekend it is advisable to book as it is very popular.

I went here many years ago. From the street through large dark brown doors down the staircase into what looked like a ghost train entrance. Though the next set of double doors and inside was a dark ( bearing bin mind your under the ground 20 feet) well used resturant. Typically Chinese with lazy Susan on the tables and little... More

Booked at short notice which caused no problems with the staff. Turned up and welcomed by them. Drinks were a little expensive but the food was excellent. Perfect sized portions which left us stuffed, but a "good stuffed." All food came in a timely manner and the food was reasonably priced for a sit in meal. Will definitely be back

Thank Craig M
