“Little Gem in Manchester”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Tried several of the restaurants in China Town. Most offer value for money. Some are "smarter" than others. A good choice of food and styles.

“not special”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

I don't think it is really special. Full of small cheap looking restaurants. If you aren't into Chinese food, not much to do.

“Worth a look”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

This is not a very Chinese styles China town although it does have an arch and plenty of Chinese restaurants and supermarkets, it does not have any ducks hanging in shop windows like to see in most other China towns around the world.
