Wandered around Chinatown among dragon dancing, stage performances of traditional Chinese music and dance, wild explosions of firecrackers and street food as well as Ho's Bakery for honey buns... great fun in spite of pretty awful weather on Sunday the 7th of February 2016.

Most of the restaurants here serve great food and the better ones are usually full in the evenings and on Sundays. here are shops and supermarkets so that you can buy your ingredients for a home cooked delight.

Prefer this Chinatown to the one in Liverpool. A range of shops and restaurants are a close walk by instead of dispersed all over the place; there's a craft shop, a bakery, and some excellent restaurants. Here, it feels there is more of an effort made to make the surroundings feel like China. The Chinese New Year celebrations and decorations... More

We went to take a look at the preparations for Chinese New Year. Lots of lanterns between the lamp posts and an impressive arch. Chinatown is tucked away, but worth finding. Lots of restaurants, small supermarkets (sone selling live fish) and a fantastic crafts and gifts shop, it's definitely worth a look if you're in Manchester.

Surprised just how small Manchester's Chinatown is. Couple of good supermarkets but overall disappointing. Even when decorated for New Year 2016 it was hard to spend any more than 30 mins. Choice of restaurants okay but don't get too excited about your visit.

We where sorry that we didn't visit this area a week later on 6 February because that... More

When you step in this district, you feel like you're in China and not in the UK anymore. Everything thing is written in Chinese (Mandarin or Cantonese or both I don't really know). Also the Imperial Arch is quite massive (we don't really have that in Paris tbh). There're plenty of restaurants all around and there's an escape maze located... More
