It's not a huge area~ but it makes you feel like you're in a more exotic area. Packed with restaurants and shops. The main focus is a Chinese gate in the centre square. Worth a visit.

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.
