We stopped by here thinking it was some sort of museum. It is a small Chinatown. Be sure to visit the grocery store if you want a hot lunch they have a lunch section. But the BAKERY was the bomb! The baked goods were all tasty, fresh and price well.

I could spend an hour just roaming the grocery area looking at all they had to offer. Great place to learn about new foods and they have a wonderful array of cookware and Chinese dishes for rice etc. Huge tea aisle too! Bakery on site with great smelling pastries. A fun stop for sure!

This is an easy sidelight from many area hotels even on foot. It is a little oasis of statuary, water and landscaping elements with dining nearby. For a little culture shock, walk thru the chinese grocery as well.

I visited the Chinese Cultural Centre to tour the statues and displays. I was thoroughly impressed with the historical info presented and buildings. The Centre is nicely laid out for a walk around the buildings.

This is a one stop place for Eastern groceries, doctors and a nice restaurant. It is close to the airport, so if you are a business traveler staying nearby, I bet this is pretty close for you. The store is huge if you need any Asian supplies -whether it be groceries, gifts, etc. I don't know if a lot of... More

Everything is mediocre. The only lure is the food market store that seems to have a pretty good selection of Asian products. Nothing special about the food court in the food store.

Yes businesses have left but 99 Market is still the bomb for Asian foods & groceries! We always loved the pond and garden around the buildings and they have been redone too. 99 Market is a great Asian grocery story that I have been too also in CALI too. A few small trinket shops survived, however, the years have been... More

Host to a vast Chinese centered grocery store that is amazing for a wide variety of ethnic specialties, and a few absolutely delicious restaurants. The garden was recently redone and is an absolutely beautiful place to stroll, especially for anyone nearby with corporate lunch breaks, but can easily become drowned by the nearby freeway-exit traffic. The large number of vacancies... More

I was a big fan and supporter of the Chinese cultural center when it first opened; however, times have changed and I think it needs something to bring back the crowds. Unfortunately, the city no longer is able to have its annual Chinese celebration here.
