“The real deal”
Review of Chinatown

Chinatown

Took me right back to China, for the most part. Several shop keepers didn't speak English, so you have to point to the fruits and vegetables you want to buy. Fun, welcoming place to visit in Oakland.

Very small size China town in Oakland, CA. Maybe a little more than two long. Pay the toll fee to go to San Francisco China town.

Good and cheap Chinese and Vietnamese restaurant. Nice Asian stores selling Asian products as well. Walking distance from Bart!

Too many people and the stores are not neat and too crowded!!!! Not that much scenery to see, and hard to find a parking space. Too many homeless >

After living in China for a year and a half I find it interesting to immerse myself back in the hustle and bustle of China town. Nothing fancy, just interesting sights and smells (without the hanging ducks). The chatter brings back fond memories of shopping in China. I wouldn't go out of your way to visit here but I come for lunch every time I'm in the area (see review on Joy Luck) and enjoy myself.
