Torontos China Town is world class and much larger than any other city I have been too. It is always jammed with pedestrian traffic with lots of stores, groceries and restaurants.

I took some visiting family out to Chinatown one Saturday night a few weeks ago. I was looking for Lee Gardens but they must have closed up shop and moved elsewhere. I was expecting a bustling, vibrant Chinatown as I had experienced in the past....More

Chinatown is a pretty good place to visit on your way to Kensington market, nothing great, just ok. There are several trinket shops for cheap souvenirs

for good food, clean restaurants and better service, head up to Markham or Richmond Hill - the glory days of china town have long passed and should remain there, that is in the past

If you want to buy good products and pay a small amount of money that’s definitely the place you should go!

Chinatown is a unique part of Toronto that creates the illusion that you are in another part of the world. There's so much to see - great selection of food and products. It's fun just to walk through Chinatown.

I visited a few shops here and they were small, dirty, cramped. There was one souvenir shop which was and fine and we purchased a few items. I only recommend visiting Chinatown is you have spare time.

I ran into a few nice murals but didn't encounter much that seemed interesting for a tourist; mostly it was just a Chinese community going about its business. Keep walking, though, and you'll eventually come to Kensington Market, which is more colorful.

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

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.

Yep I agree with the other comments, there was a great health food store just between Kensington and the Main Street in China Town.
