Lots of chinese shops especially restaurants.

Easy to reach location with lovely Chinese restaurants. Weekends is always super. Best to book in advance if you can. Most of them serve quality chinese food.

I got excited when I saw the Chinese gate, but there were a few Chinese restaurants before the gate and a couple of Chinese food stores in basements and up steps. Not really the experience I was expecting.

If you are like me missing Chinatown in London to get your love of Asian food and drinks satisfied, don't hesitate to drop by Chinatownn in Manchester to get your share. Small but worth it, it is not that far from the main shopping arcade and can thus work as a dining option after a long day of shopping. Great... More

Visited Chinatown and it was beautiful! We went in some shops and there was so much you could buy and look at. Brilliant for anyone to go to and have a look around.

I was really interested to check out Chinatown in Manchester. Sadly, it seemed scruffy, run down, rather faded signs in need of a face lift.

Worth a look to see the arch and the area has plenty of places to eat. Best of an evening when the lights are on illuminating the main street. Just be aware that this is a busy restaurant area and in the day time we found a lot of rubbish/boxes in the alleyway's making it a bit of a messy... More

Chinatown Manchester has exampanded over the years, but it's still not really worth a visit. The place is wrth maybe passing by at most when around and maybe for buying adian ingredients, or findin an asian place to eat. Even that, it doesn't have the best selection of asian restaurants in Manchester. This area is dirty and unmaintained. I dont... More
