“Really?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Have been to some great Chinatown/s in Vancouver, Toronto and San Francisco.This is just a few streets with some Chinese Restaurants, and a few shops. Not really a tourist destination except for the Chinese Cultural Centre.

“It fits the model of what is expected.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Chinatown is Chinatown... It is the same everywhere with its many Dim Sum restaurants, its chinese medicine shops and small gadget souvenir shops. The architechture has nothing special.

“Pretty Cool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The main problems are with parking (although public transit to the area is great) and safety. At night certain parts can be unsafe. However, China town is pretty cool and filled with all kinds of strange goodies.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Could use a little cleaning. It is an ok one, but not that much to see. The one in Montreal is way smaller, but more stuff to see.
