Traveled in late for some meeting the next day and needed dinner. Just what I was looking for. Good Chinese food, generous portions at a fair price. I had the Shanghai Egg Rolls, Sesame Chicken, and Pork Fried Rice. All were excellent and I ate leftovers later back at the hotel after a workout and email. Definitely recommended.

This is great Chinese food. The portions are a good size for the price, especially for the downtown location. Service was great and friendly. Would definitely come eat here again!

I eat at Chinatown Downtown probably once every two weeks and have done so for ten years. it's not great Chinese but it's conveniently located on Fifth Street just off Congress Ave. and the wait staff does a super job moving things along and it's very reasonably priced for what you get. I usually order the jalapeno chicken or the... More

someone who is Chinese. The food is well prepared with much thought and service. If there is something you want that is not on the menu, ASK. They will make every effort to accommodate your request. Excellent location with ease to close by local attractions -- lunch or dinner. Enjoy!

Daughter took me here today for lunch. The service was a bit lax. It got better once they figured out we had been sitting there for 10 min. The wanton soup was ok nothing special but the crab puffs were pretty good. The sushi roll was fresh and my general chicken was good. Can check this place off my list

Oh Chinatown, I love your downtown delivery to my condo and the tip is so worth paying just so I don't have to try to park near your establishment. I've had so many things, here are my thoughts: Tuna sushi - pleasantly surprised how fresh you were. Yummy Sadly and pepper chicken - your chef gets it right every time... More
