“Safe but bland”
Reviewed 23 October 2009

We tried Tien in light of the good reviews but were very disappointed. Although the service was friendly, the food is bland. Worse, we were told that they had no Chinese greens, only broccoli. However, another couple who arrived later were served Chinese greens. On a Tuesday evening at 7.30 pm the dining room was nearly empty and the atmosphere cold. Perhaps we caught them on a bad night. If you want decent Chinese food in Aberdeen go to the Manchurian.

“Finally, a good chinese restaurant in Aberdeen”
Reviewed 17 July 2009

Thought I'd try this place as it was on the way home from work. We've tried almost every chinese restaurant in Aberdeen and, aside from Yangztee river in the city, this really is the best. Great food, especially the honey-chilli chicken

“Lovely staff, beautiful dining room and great food”
Reviewed 17 January 2009

My partner and I visited Tien with my sister and her partner on the Monday between Christmas and New Year. This restaurant used to be the Oriental Palace - and we had been there before for the buffet which was ok - nothing special.

We knew that there had been some changes - but were really impressed - lovely modern decor, fresh linen , generally spotless. I felt slightly underdressed as we were expecting the same tired decor and plain old buffet. The service and attention from the Tien staff was faultless - and the food fresh and tasty. We will definatley be back!

Cost approx for the four of us was £85 (starters, mains, rice/noodles and 2 bottles of decent priced merlot)
