If you love Chinese food, this will give you an authentic experience. Portions were very large. There were three of us and we ordered three dishes. We figured it was lunch time and the portions would be small. We had enough left over for another...More

Very Chinese, very authentic part of NY, absolutely different from the rest of town. Street vendors and Chinese food everywhere. There are some famous restaurant there, but you have to know before you go. It is definitely a must see place in NYC!

Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle

Yes, it's worth a visit if you're going to be in Manhattan; but I wouldn't make it a priority.
