Actually my hotel was in Chinatown, but it´s not a nice area to be walking at night. There are many (really many...) restaurants and the price is really good and it also has some good stores for souvenirs. In Toronto, you can do a lot...More

If you have visited chinatowns in other cities such as San Francisco or Sydney, Toronto’s chinatown is quite disappointing. It’s pretty small and not fancy at all.

We walked down at least 6 blocks and it was the same cheap tourist junk in every shop. The only think worth trying (which we didn't) was the food, because that may be worth it. Other than that we wouldn't go back.

Yes, it is like China. :) Lots of small shops, food stalls, very friendly and exciting.There's some vegan and vegetarian places too, check google maps or an app for that!

The Chinatown in downtown Toronto is pretty big and could be considered an attraction. Lots of good food, shopping, etc. If you like visiting Chinatown and like great authentic Chinese food, then look no further.

One of the best Chinatowns I’ve ever been, be it in North America, Europe, or Australia/New Zealand. It’s bustling with crowds. Unlike those in US, the whole place is packed mostly with Chinese establishments with a spattering of Indian, Thai, and Vietnamese. Lots of cheap...More

Chinatown
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces

Take the 192 Rocket to the subway and take the subway into Downtown. $3 compared to $22. No brianer. Use google maps to work out the stops - thats what we did and saved $80 for our round trip.
