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

Chinatown is a must see with all the different shops and eateries. We had a very nice Lunch at the dragon restaurant. It was not expensive and very good and plentifulÝou can sit in the restaurant or outside a very relaxing atmosphere and the service very good.

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

Had my first experience of "Yum Cha" here at the "King of Kings" restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was glad I had a more experienced friend to guide me and advise you do the same if you've never done this. The area is interesting and definitely worth looking around.

This is a great time to visit Chinatown. Entertainment, fireworks and those magnificent Lion Dancing teams competing with each other, the loud drumming and the louder firecrackers. If you don't have a dinner booking at this time of year don't expect to get served till way after 9pm but the wait is worth it. The street stalls tended to cram... More

Kinda disappointing, I heard there were quite a number of things over there, however, the restaurants seems quite empty, there were a fest going on while we were there, it wasn't that impressive either, maybe because we're not really into music, the number of spectators are not much either (probably because we were there at around 7+, maybe not late...

We had heard Fortitude Valley was an interesting area to visit with some funky shops. Not so! We visited on a Wednesday morning and it was dead. It is a very small area and didn't interest us at all. A couple of the alleys we walked by stunk of urine and there were street people lying or sitting around sleeping... More

This chinatown was very disappointing! There were not that many restaurants or little shops to venture into. The only good thing was a lady doing cooking demonstrations but apart from that, its not really Chinatown at all. Save your time and go check out Southbank or the markets.

I was not impressed with Brisbane Chinatown. First you have to park in a carpark or in a street a 5-10 minute walk away. We did the latter. We went a tnight time and there were a lot of suspicious looking people as we walked from our car to the Chinatown strip. The streets near Chinatown had lots of empty... More
