After reading the other reviews, I thought I would take the drive from the Sunshine Coast to check it out for myself. It was Sunday, before midday and there were only a about 10 market stalls set up.. three of them were open-air style massage. Very disappointing Food:- we were craving some great Chinese food and unfortunately most of the... More

Just a street full of Chinese shops and markets. There are loads of things to see in Brisbane that are Australian, leave a street in China for the next time your in China.

There are plenty of restuarants in China Town, and of course not just chinese but plenty of Asian cuisine. It is in the heart of the valley so its a great place to grab a meal before a night out on the town! During Chinese new year they have lots of music, parades and dance displays on which is cool...

They spent millions upgrading the Chinatown mall and it was a total waste of money. It is still tragic compared to either sydney or Melbourne. Don't bother with the mall. There are some reasonable places serving yum cha. Give them a go.

I recently visited the mall en route to dinner at sbout 6pm at night. It was noticeably cleaner thsn it has been in the past and it was extremely well lit mak8ng it feel safer than many other places in Fortitude Valley. There are some nice lights snd a lot of restaurants. I would not come here just to see... More

There's never really anything exciting going on here. There's no ethnic vibe just a pretty, quiet mall to walk down. Brisbanes culture has been banished to the Southside so if you want to see Chinatown, go to Sunnybank :)

Thinking about China Town, this Brisbane China Town is not really special, and cannot be compared at the level with Sydney. Well, a lot of Asian restaurants, but not exclusive or special Chinese Food, it is a mixed of Asian’s food/restaurant, Korean, Japan, Vietnamese, Thai, Singapore, Malaysian etc. It is OK, but just not special. If not use private car,... More

I have never been one for the idea of having a section of a city called something due to the amount of certain restaurants and stores that inhabit an area. Originally when this area first evolved it was interesting, now it is very tired. The newer shops (Adventure stores) that have opened up over the last ten years are more... More
