We took the boat to Chinatown. It was confusing as to where to go when we got off. We luckily had someone to follow through the neighborhood to get to "Chinatown" where the restaurants and shops were. It wasn't at all what we hoped it...More

This was my first time to a Chinatown so I was probably easy to impress. We visited during the morning so it wasn't very busy. Would love to visit again.

We were a party of 6 in couples. Needed to go to restroom.... no where but the library. Even with places in front of you to visit. The place we ate was rude and server was too aggressive. Would not go again.

My son and I walked through Chinatown when I visited him recently. It was amazing to see the huge variety of stores and restaurants, and a little overwhelming. We got some milk tea, which was tasty, but definitely a different taste. I wish I had...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

Yes. Two big parking lots along Wentworth Ave at Cermak and at Archer Ave. (under the CTA Red Line stataion). You can get a validation ticket in participating stores or restaurants for a discount on the parking rate.
