Just an arch with a series of bad restaurants. One particular Buffett had the worse food I had ever eaten. Arch was nice but not exactly worth visiting!

Barely a street long and mostly closed, we were disappointed by what was on offer in Chinatown, Manchester. The gate was nice to see although a lot smaller than imagined despite seeing pictures previously. There were a few people out and about out on the whole, the pubs and restaurants away from Chinatown were busy with a great atmosphere. Chinatown... More

I love China Town - it is only little but packed with shops and restaurants. Little Yang Sing is great and you cannot beat the Great Wall for a budget business lunch.

Love this place. Authentic Chinese food. Love the sushi bars and the vibe! A place to visit when you fancy something different from the usual shops.

We enjoyed looking around at the unique buildings and stores. Ate lunch here and were very pleased. Ordered a ton of food and shared with the group. No one was disappointed or hungry when we left.

My first visit for some years and something of a let down. The restaurants and shops are still there, and though it was mid-week there were queues outside the best of them. But the old vibrancy seemed lacking somehow. Tip: Visit often, but try a Friday or Saturday the first time.
