“Interesting”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Gives you a real feel for Chinese culture. Wong Wong bakery is very nice inside, filled with all sorts of weird and wonderful treats. Little super markets are dotted around. I recommend going on Chinese New Year where there are parades and stalls selling freshly cooked noodles and sir fries, a must see in manchester.

“Go hungry.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Great place to eat. So many place to satisfy your gastronomic needs. Look it up before you go,try to narrow down your preferances or you will be dashing from one resturant to the other.Expect perfunctory service in the cheaper resturants especially at lunchtime but its almost always worth it. I can't review any particular place as they are always picked at random.We seldom look at their names just the menu's. Its a coulorful and interesting area if you like food.

It is a great part of the city and lots of places to eat, but also shops and cultural activities. There is parking right in the centre near the Chinese Arch

“Okay, not much there”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Good for restaurants and a few stores, China town is mainly centered around a car park it would seem!
