China Town is situated in the area called the Valley. Only a short walk from the centre of Brisbane, it is filled with so many delights from the Asian Culture, you think you are actually in Asia. An amazing place to have a delightful meal from many different countries, or do some shopping at 1 of many Asian shops to... More

I visited in the evening for dinner on a weekday, around red gate area was almost empty and very quiet. Seemed we cannot expect "exciting" and " loud" China town here. Chinese supermarket near the...

I took the train from the city to chinatown in Brisbane, Australia. It is spacious with 2 lions guarding the entrance. The foods are nice and enjoyable

Chinatown doesn't always smell the best, and it's not the cleanest area around Brisbane, but look past it all and it's a gem of a place. The Chinese marts here are better than any other asian grocers/shops in the city - they're HUGE, filled with everything, and give heaps of bang for your buck. There are so many hidden food... More

Chinatown is a great place for oriental foods as well as regular markets selling knick knacks and fabrics etc. Lots of knock offs as ever in these markets

There are many but the best of all is Garboro. Not really a place for eating, better go to Sunny Bank or West End.

If you are in Brissie you must go to Chinatown. Experience the vibrancy colour smell and atmosphere. I loved just walking around browsing
