Chinatown, Manchester

(2.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Step under the traditional Chinese paifang--or archway--on Faulkner Street and find yourself in Chinatown. Thanks to thousands of Chinese immigrants during the last 100 years, this is the third-largest Chinatown in Europe and the second-largest in the UK. More than two dozen restaurants offer meals from quick snacks to multicourse events and includes cuisine representing Japan, Viet Nam, Thailand, and, of course, China. There are also Asian grocery stores and medicine shops. Put Chinatown and other Manchester attractions into our Manchester vacation trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The street is small, and it's quite uncomfortable to go there. There are lot of small kinisiska shops. Would not go there in the evening. Close to Picadilly Garden.
