Food and drink
The playful menu includes kangaroo haggis, Thai fish cakes and minced wild boar, but this is just a side show to the main event. Without a shadow of a doubt, people come here for the fixed price eat-as-much-as-you-can buffet barbecue. Choose your ingredients from the rice, noodles, vegetables, exotic meats and seafood, add a combination of sauces, oils, herbs and spices, and watch as the chef’s cook it up in front of your eyes on open hotplates. Menu suggestions on the place mats are great for kids, those seeking inspiration or just for the culinary challenged like me.
As one of the few restaurants in the country to sell exotic meats, it’s definitely worth getting tucked into the springbok, wild boar and zebra – even if it may not be particularly politically correct.
I love the mural of Mongolian warriors and the restaurant’s attempt to replicate The Great Wall of China. At the weekends, it can get quite raucous with group bookings.
A bit haphazard, but with so much going on its easy to watch the hot plate chef’s cook up a storm.
In the heart of the Merchant City.
With a fixed price menu for a full feast – £20.95 from Sunday to Friday and £22.95 on Saturday – its great value – but only if you’re going to eat enough to feed a hungry Aberdonian. Khublai Khan also offers a generous pre-theatre menu for £13.95 (three courses).
