Average shops and eating places as expected. However there are some decent food spots tucked away down the alleys. Constantly busy throughout the day. Wouldn't visit again.

An interesting experience with wondering entertainment and restaurants. Great please for the whole family. The vibe is awesome. It’s possible to wonder around and pick a restaurant but if your hungry and don’t want to wait make a reservation.

If you want to get cheap but decent quality Australian souvenirs, then highly recommend to check out Chinatown in Sydney.

We had a great time in Chinatown again recently-snapping photos,sampling cuisine and generally soaking up the febrile atmosphere. The gates and friendship plaques from Guangzhou and other Chinese cities make for very good photos.

Arrange to have some time to reset your mood before shopping and loading up on food. Walk down to the Chinese Friendship gardens. It really is an oasis of quiet calm next to the Central Business District. The walk around the water gardens and architecture...More

Nice place to try out some Asian food. This area is located close to darling Harbour, next to Chinese garden of friendship. Walk up here and spend some time soaking the ambience. Paddy's market is also located in proximity.

entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk
through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where
aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers
transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors
can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the
neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From
yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the
