These few blocks are ok, but not many shops and restaurants to choose from. The one in Vancouver is far larger with way more shops and restaurants

I was expecting more out of Seattle's Chinatown based on reviews. It was not what I expected and we got great Vietnamese food in Capitol Hill.

If you like dim sum, there are lots of great little restaurants. Delicious! There's a really awesome pinball museum, which is more of an arcade than museum. It's $15 admission but you can play all the machines and it's AWESOME. It can get pretty busy...More

Not too many stores gearing for souvenirs in the heart of it. Mainly restaurants and groceries types of shops. There's Uwajimaya though that has a huge selection of things that she may like.
