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

Chicago's Chinatown is much smaller than some other Chinatowns in other big cities like NYC or LA, but has good variety of stores, restaurants and cultural heritage centers. It is also convenient with access via public transportation, and a quick 10 minutes drive from downtown...More

Chinatown is awesome. There's so many great inexpensive restaurants. You can find great dim sum, barbecued meats, hand-pulled noodles, hand-made dumplings, Mongolian hot pot--the list goes on. We visited a bbq place and split 1/2 a duck for $14. We also visited a tea house...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
