“SMALL, JUST GO THERE FOR CHINESE FOOD”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Manchester is a relatively small city compared with London, Birmingham or Leeds. But it should be commended for the effort in presenting a Chinatown. There is the Chinese arch, and beyond, it has several Chinse restaurants in the surrounding streets. Most look decrepit, but I am sure the food inside is better.

“Love this place and visit often”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

Really love Chinatown in Manchester. We always have a nice meal and then take a look around the shops. We like to purchase items never had before to try them out.

Nice atmosphere and usually fairly busy the only down point is smelly drains.

Well worth a visit.

“OK but nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

If you are expecting a China town comparable with London you will be disappointed.
There are many asian supermarkets selling interesting food and other items, and these are always great for a browse, but the general area is quite seedy and dirty. Strip joints and poor quality Chinese restaurants. The Chinese arch is worth a look, but unfortunately the gazebo next to it is always without exception filled with anti social arguing drug addicts / chavs.
It's worth a look, but don't have high expectations.
