Do try hakka dishes like steamed pork with preserved mustard green (Moychoy Niouk). If you're looking for true authentic gems, I challenge you to find the Chu Feng Leung shop and try their traditional hakka cakes (hint: near Chinatown Deli Restaurant), especially fried bread fingers (Gateaux les doight).

Unless you need house hold goods. Just don't see why they would even put up the two signs " China Town", not even ! Maybe a hundred yards , maybe! A few hardware stores. That's it.,

Pretty dirty, nothing original to see or by, busy during the day. Green market is small, upper floor has shops with souvenirs, of course, 99% made in China. If you are around, OK to walk to it, but otherwise not the place to put on your list.

this was a very busy place, we really did struggle with the pavements or lack of them. The people are lovely.

Busy, dirty, nothing to see or buy. It could be interesting only for food, there are some restaurants but it's not for a special trip. It's pretty small.

This place is superb if you are going there when there is the Chinese food events and festivals. It is too noisy and nothing attractive except restaurants and hardware stores.

Unlike many bustling China Towns this one is rather sad and dilapidated. Good place to get a Chinese meal if you are a fan. but nothing special, so don't make a special trip.
