We visited on Memorial Day weekend and had a lovely time. Many parts appear run down, but we always felt safe. Ironically, I was in the mood for a slice of pizza and the slice Chinatown dished up was fantastic. We had the whole day...More

Always a favorite when we visit Chicago. Inexpensive traditional Chinese clothing, food, and gifts. Easy to get to on the Red Line. The buzz and energy from people, music, and smells will lure you in.

Loved all that China Town offers. Always feel safe and the people are so nice. You cant find better food. Be sure to take the water taxi if its running.

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
