“Great alternative”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Lucky Chinatown or LCM as fondly called is a great alternative for Manila residents to go to. Parking is ample for those with own vehicles and it is accessible by taxi cabs, pedicabs and even jeepneys. There are many stores to shop from - whether signature brands or local brands. Eateries abound in the different levels. There are 4 theaters to watch movies from. Then there are usually different shows or interesting activities in this mall-like mini concerts (last week it was the Acer Choir singing Christmas carols as they promoted their products). The mall is not just for people but for pets too as dogs come in their "best attires" when coming here. The mall itself is not that big and spacious as other popular malls would boast of, but it has certainly maximized its space very well. Another plus point is its accessibility to Divisoria which is a well known haven for great bargains. Indeed, it's a great alternative to the bigger, noisier and more crowded malls.

“Ample parking spaces”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

The area of Binondo, Manila has always been a shopper’s paradise. However, the congestion and the lack of parking spaces had somehow deterred me and my family from frequenting the place. Lucky Chinatown Mall must have seen these difficulties so that it had allotted eight floors of parking spaces in its spacious and fully air-conditioned modern edifice. Their facilities and merchandises are comparable to those in upscale Makati. Residents in the area need not go elsewhere to dine or even to shop for fancier brands. Personally, there is one Chinese Restaurant that my family loves to patronize inside the mall. It is the King Chef Seafood Restaurant. Prices are reasonable and the food is truly delicious. Those in search for bargains can also opt to rummage through the flea markets located outside the mall. These are numerous and situated close to each other. Be prepared to haggle, though, since vendors almost always pad their prices in preparation for the negotiating game.

“Gotta Love This Mall!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

The main reason I like this mall is that it's within my neighborhood. We don't need to go too far to enjoy great brand stores or good restaurants. Plus, we like the cinema too! It's an awesome place to hangout with friends and family. If you drop by Chinatown or go to Divisoria, make it a point to visit LC Mall.

“Great mall in Binondo area”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

this new mall is filled with great brands like Mango,Adidas,Levi's, Cliche, Samsonite, Payless, Converse, Crocs, Bench, Penshoppe, Human, etc. Great selection of restaurants as well such as KFC, Mang Inasal, Chicken Charlie, Bon Chon Chicken, Tao Yuan, Mann Hann, Sincerity, King Chef, Shi Lin, UCC, Starbucks, Happy Lemon, French Baker and some other more.
Traffic outside can be miserable most of the time but once you're inside, you won't feel like leaving the place til closing time. The cinema is big and the air conditioning is very cool. There's also Gold's gym inside. Pets are allowed here, there's a pet shop inside named Dogs and the City.

The only downside of this mall is their parking rate which starts at 50 for the first 3 hours and additional 15 every hour.
