I was taken here a few years ago by my friend for my birthday, we had great evening. I love the whole oriental theme of the streets and the buildings, unfortunately i cant remember the name of the restaurant we dined in but it was lovely, the staff were friendly and the food was delicious and the decor was amazing...

This follows on from my visit to Liverpool Chinatown a which I was slightly disappointed by. This is definitely a far better experience for me, as you can feel the atmosphere. Lots of Chinese restaurants, bakery and grocery stores to choose from. Have not been to the London one so cannot compare.

We visited not long after the Chinese New Year celebrations so there were still many lanterns adorning the street. I took my 6,4 & 2 year old. I've wandered around and dined in this gorgeous little part of Manchester many times, but I took the kids as the 4 year old had been mesmerised by her learning about Chinese New... More

Manchester's Chinatown, while disappointing when compared to the Chinatowns of Los Angeles or San Francisco, is a great place to stock up on Chinese groceries or enjoy a fun dining experience. My partner and I have been there together for dinner and shopping many times, and it makes for a great diversion while in Manchester. However, please note that the... More

I felt that there is nothing much to be seen or do here besides taking picture of the gate or stocking up on your Asian groceries. Didn't try the food here so can't comment on that.

My partner and I were staying in a hotel just around the corner and accidentally passed this incredibly beautiful place. We found it very intriguing and welcoming. Excellent piece of Chinese culture.

You can't beat a good Chinatown, with the hustle & bustle, the fantastic smells coming from the numerous Chinese restaurants & great Chinese supermarkets. Needed to stock up on Chinese ingredients for my store cupboard at home. Loads cheaper than getting from normal supermarket & lots of unusual stuff that's hard to source normally. Found a Thai supermarket with fresh... More
