The best Chinese restaurants in Dundee - top-rated places


Whether it’s your weekend tradition, or a treat every now and then, there’s nothing like finding a great Chinese restaurant or takeaway to rely on when you have a craving for a Chow Mein. 


Once you’ve moved to a new city, it can often take months of trial and error before you find a local Chinese you love. 


Luckily, we’ve taken all the hassle out of scouting for the perfect Peking Duck and done the research for you. Here is our guide to the best Chinese restaurants in Dundee.


We’ve looked at location, cost and flavour when putting together our guide. If you’ve tried a spot in Dundee you think we’ve missed, let us know!

The Manchurian

15a Gellatly Street, Dundee, DD1 3DY


If you’re searching for a proper Dim Sum, stop here. The Manchurian is a family-run restaurant offering a mix of traditional and modern Chinese cuisines on its menu.


The team have created a great atmosphere, perfect for a get together with friends, or as a place to bring your family when they visit. 


While the Manchurian prides itself on casual and friendly dining, you can also hire the area for a private party, or even try out their karaoke machine if you’re feeling brave!

Mandarin Garden

40-44 South Tay Street Dundee DD1 1 PF


While many of us have a ‘go to’ order from our local Chinese restaurant, Mandarin Garden allows the chance to try something new.


While their menu features all the classics you’d expect from a British Chinese restaurant, the team also offers regular Mandarin Specials which are changed on a regular basis.


If you’re feeling brave, but still want a fail-safe to fall back on, try a banquet or set dinner, you’ll get the best of both worlds. 


Mandarin Garden recommend booking during busy times, and offer takeaway and delivery options for days when you’re feeling lazy!

China Pot

87 Charleston Drive, Dundee, DD2 2HB


Speaking of feeling lazy, sometimes the best Chinese is one eaten in front of the TV. 


The team at China Pot offer exclusively takeaway and delivery Chinese food, so you don’t have to leave your sofa to get your hands on some of the best Chinese food in Dundee.


The kitchen also uses Halal meats and can cater for allergies and intolerances. Order yours here


Yamm Buffet

Whitehall Street, Dundee, DD1 4AA


You’ll need to bring an appetite for this one! Yamm is a highly rated Chinese buffet in the centre of Dundee.


Recently refurbished, Yamm Buffet offers a wide range of freshly-prepared Oriental food in a buffet-style setting.


Not only can you get all the Chinese dishes you’d come to expect from a traditional restaurant, but they also offer a range of English and Indian dishes too.


You can fill up your plate for just £9.50, making it the perfect spot for students. Book a table here. 


Chopstix

12 St Andrews Street, Dundee, DD1 2EX


If you’re looking for a traditional British-Chinese takeaway, Chopstix is it.
