Was one of the stops off the T. It was just ok. Kind of small compared to other chinatowns in other states that I've visited. Was in Boston on business and decided to stop by on a whim just to check it out. Not alot...More

I was very surprised that Boston had a decent Chinatown. There were quite a few blocks of Asian busineses and lots of Asian people walking around. We stopped in at a local dim sum shop, which was good but unfortunately we were too full to...More

If you have been to San Francisco's China Town then you have seen the best. If you have been to NYC's China town you have seen the worst. Boston's China town is fairly nice and is more like SF's with a quaint park for traditional...More

Been going to Chinatown since the late 1970s. In my opinion, outside of Asia, San Francisco and New York City, it's a great place to have dimsum, seafood and Vietnamese food. Never had a bad meal. Lots of interesting shops and close to everything.

I suppose that the Chinese population of Boston is pretty spread out, so the center core of it, i.e. Chinatown is rather small. There are only two or three really good restaurants, the rest strictly for tourists. Not too much else going on here. The...More

I remember visiting China town serval times as a teenager and young adult. We visited again in 2016 and were disappointed with the stores and service. Perhaps, some traditions do die out. Although, the sculpture, art and history were breathtaking.

A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences,
visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine
and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the
iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler,
and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest
your feet from walking and grab a bite at one of the
many restaurants around Chinatown. From traditional
Chinese to Vietnamese to Malaysian, there is a wide
