We Visited China Town whilst in Calgary, there is a nice little market and everyone was very nice and welcoming. The area seemed quite run down in general but you could see there was a lovely sense of community spirit.

A compact Chinatown as they go but some nice quirky shops. Nice smells from the cafés and restaurants. Very short walk from downtown Calgary.

I was back in Chinatown recently, and not much has changed. A huge eyesore was being demolished just across the street from the Cultural Centre, so that's nothing but positive news there There's still only 1 point of access from the +15 Pedestrian system, through...More

China town is located close to down town. There are many, many restaurants both old and new. The Chinese food ranges from quite good to not so good. The pricing also ranges from medium to quite high. There are lots of Chinese shops to browse....More

Although this place is relative safe and clean, it doesn't really have the chinatown feel. But you can visit if you have the time. There are of course quite a lot of restaurants and eateries here. It is also near the bridge overlooking the river...More

Most Calgarians will have some sort of fond memory of a great meal or lunch in Chinatown, or of something seen while walking or driving through. But compared to other Chinatowns in other cities, even Canadian ones, there isn't a lot to do here except...More

I wouldn't put this on your travel list for Calgary unless you were perhaps coming here specifically to eat or were in the area. Its located right down town and the parking is astronomical and hard to get on week days. We actually lucked out...More

Calgary's China Town is an eclectic mix of old and new. Traditional meets modern in art, culture and culinary modalities. The Chinese cultural center is an example of today's modern art, style and color capitalizing on the amazing influence of the past. Many shops have...More

If you're not looking for a thrill, scenery, or entertainment but just for some good food, go for it! Plenty of good restaurants here from many parts of Asia. The dining is inexpensive, casual, and most importantly good food. Give it a try!
