Do not waste your time and go there! There's absolutely nothing. Only a few pubs and very run down restaurant. I was very disappointed going there. What a waste of my time and paying for my parking!

This has to be the worst "Chinatown" we have ever come across. The main street was almost deserted, had a variety of average looking Asian style restaurants, one good record shop (as in the old fashioned vinyl) and that was about it. The general area...More

Don't expect the glamour of the other world renowned China Town! this is just a couple of over-crowed slight grotty streets.. Alas I find myself here all too often myself & friends are suckers for overly lit garish cheap BYOB Chinese resturants arnt'we all?
