Rather poor representation of a Chinatown. If you compare this with London, Bangkok or Yokohama, you'd find that this is just a street. But if you're looking for some good Chinese food, this is the place to find it.

Our daughter loved visiting the many bakeries and shops in Chinatown. I certainly recommend it to families traveling with school-aged kids. Delicious yum cha as well.

Staff is rude, unpleasant, and won't honor coupons. They have all the ability to be polite and nice, and choose to be rude. The games are overpriced. I hope they have terrible corns on their feet.

I had been told that the Chinatown here was better than Melbourne, so I had very high expectations. Melbourne trumps Sydney for sure.

Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the
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
