I've been there in Chinese New Year. A huge celebration was happening. The place is beautiful, full of colors. A small but truth Chinatown.

The main things to see in this area are the large number of Chinese restaurants, and also the fact that the City Council has gone to the trouble of putting a Chinese translation on to all the street signs. This seems to have been a totally unnecessary expense and a misguided attempt to create something that doesn't really exist. Unless... More

Strong connections in Liverpool with the Chinese communities from the years when the port was thriving Area is small and some what run down. Could do with a makeover like other parts of the city have had in recent years

Some cities have a Chinatown and some cities don't. In my opinion Liverpool doesn't really have one any more. Yes - it's got a big Chinese arch, but other than that there is nothing worth coming here for. In truth, you can find more Chinese restaurants in most suburban High Streets than you will find here.

The Council and local business have tried to promote this but it is truely one of the real part fo Liverpool's immigrant community. It may be a bit downheal but it is genuine and there are good shops and restaurants to go to in the area.

A beautiful authentic Chinese Arch which has to be seen to be appreciated. Gorgeous craftsmanship and well maintained. A fitting tribute to Liverpool's long standing and well integrated Chinese community. For best effect come for the annual Chinese New Year Celebrations. This was us celebrating the year of the horse (picture attached)

The place looks really run down! It is a small Chinatown and during the day only 1 resturant was opened. There was approx 4 to 5 resturants which looked like permanently shutdown and around 5 shops only open at night. I went into the only shop opened and ordered Beef stir fried rice noodle (乾炒牛河), those who are of Chinese... More

The arch is wonderful but in the day it looks all run down and largely closed. It needs and thinks its going to get a facelift. At night when the restaurants are open it might be very different - I dont know.

Went for a walk after eating in a Chinese restaurant nearby. It is good to be reminded that Liverpool has the oldest Chinese community in the UK. Although very cold we enjoyed the walk.
