Chinatown, London
(3.1/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Chinatown offers plenty of tasty Chinese cuisine in the heart of London. The most difficult aspect of finding a restaurant here is choosing from the vast array of them. Peek into establishments to see the clientele; if they seem to be neighborhood residents, you'll likely find tasty food. Many restaurants present the bill in Chinese, so keep your own record of what you order and how much it costs. As you stroll the area, keep an eye out for details such as the stone lion on Gerrard Street. The neighborhood hosts various events and celebrations throughout the year, so check the schedule before you visit.

  • After a heavy meal we decided to go for a stroll in Chinatown. Most of the Chinese restaurants are still open until late hours. The street seems to come alive when the lights are illuminated. 
  • This Chinatown is one of the best ones you'll find in cities around the world. It is very colourful and has an extensive choice of Chinese restaurants. 
  • This place is lovely. The restaurant there is absolutely delicious. The food there is the real taste of Chinese food but other places non in Chinatown aren't the real taste of Chinese food.
