Loved walking about here and doing some window shopping, There is a nice atmosphere and lots of interesting sights, sounds and smells it's almost like taking an actual trip out of Manchester to the orient. Recommend a visit.

Always enjoy walking round Chinatown, the atmosphere, the smell feels like you are on your holidays. The Chinese supermarkets are also worth a visit, lots or amazing Chinese foods to smell and experience.

The businesses of Chinatown need to get together and clean the place up. It's becoming very run down and dirty. It has some lovely restaurants and shops but the area is horrible and eventually your customers will stop coming if someone doesn't take action!!!

Just one block with a couple restaurants and that's it. Not much more to visit. There is the Chinese arc if you want a picture and keep moving.

Great to see, full of great places to eat, a treat to walk round. Well worth a visit on an evening just for a stroll or to eat out. Building work was going on when we were there so some parts were not accessible which was a shame but did not spoil the experience.

Chinatown was very pleasant and interesting seeing it for the first time. The people who work there and are locals are more than helpful if you ever needed directions or advice on where to eat. There is so much choice to choose form when it comes to restaurants which is also great if you're not too sure what you're feeling... More

It is too small and bland compare to Chinatown in London. However, travelers could find many tasty restaurants with Asian food. Some of them are significantly delicious!

Only one street, a few shops, some restaurants and that´s it. Go through if you are way around, but don´t expect a lot.
