The place to go when u are craving for chinese food. There are also stores that sell fresh fruits, veggies and meat for cheaper price, compared to commercial supermarkets. Always busy. U can also buy stuff from the sidewalk vendors.

It was ok to walk around and get some deals. Nothing special. The food was ok but finding parking was no easy task. Walked quite a way but it was a beautiful day so it worked out.

There are lots of people here complaining about Toronto's Chinatown - too dirty, run-down, the people don't behave correct. So I would like to ask: What do you expect? It's not a Zoo or a Museum with living exhibits. Maybe think about that before posting...More

This is a fascinating shopping area. It's full of things that you don't need but want to buy because they are so cheap. There are also many places to eat and drink.

Spent the day in China Town Toronto. Parking was super easy, found an underground spot in 5 minutes. The bakeries in this part of the city are the stars of the show with two baked goods for $1. Meat was very interestingly displayed in shop...More

I didn't feel transported to China as in other Chinatowns around the world. The items for sale were very much what could be found any other low cost store. Overall I wasn't compelled to go in each and every little boutique to explore and discover...More

I wasn't sure what to expect with this Chinatown. After living in NY and spending much time in that Chinatown, my comparison is always to that. Toronto is a large city and this Chinatown is sizable. It had interesting Chinese businesses with various tea shops,...More

Eh, it was ok. I am glad we visited. Would I go back? No. The food wasn't very good at either restaurant we went to. I had my sights set to high for the food, I suppose. My little take out joint here in the...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces

Take the 192 Rocket to the subway and take the subway into Downtown. $3 compared to $22. No brianer. Use google maps to work out the stops - thats what we did and saved $80 for our round trip.

Yep I agree with the other comments, there was a great health food store just between Kensington and the Main Street in China Town.
