Chinatown (Manchester) Reviews
Newest Review: ... in the typical red brick of Manchester. These buildings had been built in Victorian times when Manchester had been a very prosperous city, the centre of the cotton trade and lined both sides of the narrow streets, an ideal location for any “New Community” So one by one little restaurants such as Charlie Chans, Yang Sing, The Hong Kong and many more with equally exotically sounding names gained rave reviews for the wonderfully different foods they were introducing to us all. I remember my first ever trip to china town in the 70's to a re... more

This is the second biggest Chinatown in United Kingdom after the one in London. And here you can find perhaps the best Oriental food around, at an affortable price with excellent service. You can find a wide variety of Oriental food, including Thai's and Malaysian as well. For Oriental buffet lovers, there are a few around but the best I ever taken was at Pacific Restaurant. Most of these restaurants also served dim sum daily, the price ranging from around 2-2.50 pounds per dish. For those who prefer to cook themselves, there are a number of Chinese shops selling all sorts of Chinese cooking materials. Read the complete review
