It is the real thing, not like San Francisco's tourist trap.Tao Dim Sum on Webster between 7th and 8th is outstanding.

Just like with any Chinatown, if you are not really a big fan of their products like groceries, food and cuisine then there's not much to see--BUT there is a lot to smell! The place is quite dirty.

This is my favorite Chinatown On the whole west side of the country. If you visit you have to explore all of the markets and stop for dim sum

You found everything that is n San Fran's Chinatown but in a smaller area to walk in and less hectic. That made it much more accessible. Knowing Chinese would have made it easier with the vendors as many don't speak English. Authentic.
