The Yangste River is one of the original Chinese Restaurants in Aberdeen, having opened in 1964.
The food and the style therefore harks back to the era when Scots had to be encouraged, by familiar restaurant styles and formats, to try the novel idea of Chinese food. That includes serving soup in soup dishes, food on flat plates with knives and forks and offering dishes that will appeal to non-adventurous palates. Chicken Maryland and chips anyone?
The only time we've been there recently was when a little boy in our company insisted that - while we could eat something different - all he wanted was chips! Not an outstanding meal, but we all left quite satisfied.
