From the outside, a pleasant stroll thru authentic Chinese scholars style garden. Designed as a walk thru educational display with info signs and statues of Asian mythological characters. A 10 min walk and you seen it all. The shopping mall has a good market, but few of anything else. A small restaurant with a good Dim sum crowd. Dinner not... More

Interesting place to just wander and enjoy an easy walk. We like to explore the shops and grab a bite of lunch too.

The building and the history walk are nice. The super market is good if you like Asian food. Most of the stores are closed. If you have an hour to kill it's worth seeing, otherwise I would go out of my way.

I had in my mind that there would be a lot of Chinese history. Instead I found I beautiful koi pond that was wonderful. I nice walk way and signs telling of Chinese history. But not a lot to see, unless you want to shop. There are several shops, although several empty store fronts in the center as well as... More

Chinese Cultural Center. You cannot believe everything you hear! When we heard that the Chinese Cultural Center which was supposed to be maintained by the Chinese Government had fallen into disrepair, we were very disappointed. But, it turned out that only one restaurant went bankrupt and the rest of the center was very much alive. So we just ate at... More

We were never there when it was thriving with many stores but it does seem odd that there are only a handful of places in this center. We still go to the grocery store when we are in town because of the unique experience of feeling like you are in China. We also spend time walking around the garden area... More

Once upon a time, this place was thriving. There were many restaurants, a bank, a few shops for kitsch. Now, most of the cultural items are gone. About all that's left is a restaurant or two and the mostly-oriental grocery store. We still hit the grocery store when we're in that part of town and don't have time to go... More

What once a great place to visit and dine is becoming a Ghost Center. I still do my shopping at the Market since is one the places in the Phoenix area where I can purchase ingredients to do my Asian cooking.

Though a lot of the shops were closed up, the architecture is beautiful and there is an amazing garden/pond well worth stopping for.
