Love to go shopping in all the wonderful Chinese grocery shops. We buy lots of ingredients to take home and then make lovely authentic meals. I find it very interesting to look at lots of Chinese food items, as some are very different to what you see in British food shops. China town has some of the best restaurants around... More

China Town in Manchester isn't as huge as the word 'town' may suggest. However, there are a few Chinese and several other Asian eateries. They appeared authentic. There isn't much more to see than the gate.

Hunting for a Chinese in Manchester took me to China Town, whilst there I found a Chinese bar selling eastern sourced beer, and then a seafood shop which was better stocked than most Sea Life Centres!!!!. Finally ended up in Peking Court and enjoyed a Full Chinese Buffet for 5 which cost less than £70!!!!!

This is my favourite place in Manchester. I liked it that much that I actually rented a place here. It's a beautiful place to be both day and night and has delicious food from kwokmans. It's nice to relax under the Asian styled arches and just kick back and relax during the day.
