The pictured archway is probably the most impressive thing about this street. It is really just a handful of small shops, a lot smaller than I imagined. There were some delicious smells coming from the restaurants, so perhaps give them a go.

The typical Chinatown of any major city, offers some of the related cuisine and a must for asian shopping supplies. The area is not the tidiest but still its a nice place to walk around and do some cheap shopping. After all, the chinese community always have lots to offer.

Some decent restaurents in the town. Some a little pricey and this doesn't mean you get what you pay for.

Another gem and a place to explore. Be warned the street parking charges are very high. Catch a tram or bus into the area. Good restaurants and bars and casinos

We really enjoyed our dinner in China town. There are a few excellent restaurangs with authentic Chinese foods. Our favorite is the Honan restaurang. If you enjoy Pearl Buck's stories, there is a nice restaurang which have all the dishes you will encounter in Peony.

At first the place seems untidy and difficult to navigate, however it is a great place to visit and to eat. The staff are polite and the food is fresh.

Some of the restaurants look run down and uninviting from the outside, but once inside offer a wide range of good quality food at reasonable prices.
