I remember going to Chinatown in highschool over 25 years ago. When in town for a girls trip with no plans we decided to check it out and have lunch there. We walked down the street where the entrance is and stopped in a few...More
Chicago China town reminds me of a 3rd tier city in China. Dirty with crappy shops and restaurants that look like they would make you sick. Everyone was smoking. We went into one shop and if you need a picture of a naked woman with...More
We decided to head over to Chinatown for dinner on a whim and were not disappointed. The couple shops we stopped in at had amazing things for sale at reasonable prices and all of the food places looked amazing as well!
I could not find anything really interesting there. Just walked around and took some pictures. This place might be better for someone, who is looking for chinese food, or shopping, but inf not, there is not much to do.
There is really nothing here of interest. There are plenty of places to buy little trinkets and lots of places to eat Chinese food. Overall we found it dirty and offering nothing of interest. If you’ve ever been to NYC’s Chinatown you’ll be greatly disappointed.
After having a tasty dinner, with some relatives; we decided to stroll awhile, and work off our indulging. Fortunately we were all full from the meal; as it lessened the temptation from all the seemingly endless eateries and/or bakeries throughout the area.

Sometimes places are polished and scrubbed to the point of no recognition, and that is certainly NOT this Chinatown. This is a place for people to live and experience Asian culture in a relatively authentic way. When we visited recently, with the mish-mash of buildings,...More
You must take in Chinatown and all it has to offer. I loved shopping and learning in the grocery market. Found a fantastic bakery and tried many delicious treats that were so affordable I bought some for later. I shopped the many shops and found...More
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
sprinkled throughout the neighborhood ranging from animal structures to pagodas, a tile mosaic, Chinatown Gate, and a Buddhist Temple.
Yes!! Absolutely Yes.. I can’t wait to go back, I cant imagine how fun it would be to stay for a few days, time to sample the bakery items, several bubble teas, dim sum, Shabu Shabu, I would be in heaven here..

Chicago's Chinatown is smaller than New York. There are many stores to buy inexpensive things, One restaurant I highly recommend is Ming Hin for dim sum, entrees, etc.They own 3 restaurants in various areas, so are successful. Thanksgiving is as good a time as any. Enjoy!
