Though much smaller than the Chinese neighborhoods of New York and San Francisco, great food and numerous small Chinese specialty stores still abound in Chinatown.

I like the entrance to Chinatown...Plenty of places to walk around and visit the shops that have tables lined up on the sidewalks. I always feel rushed from the owners when thinking about making a purchase, so we just walked by. Some of the restaurants...More

Just a bunch of junk stores. It was dead and nothing to really do. Very boring so don't waste any time going there. It's not like China town in New York or Toronto. There was only one small restaurant and I wouldnt chance eating there.
