Was looking forward to exploring Liverpool's Chinatown expecting there to be plenty of authentic restaurants and shops. Unfortunately couldn't be further from the truth.

I am a massive fan of China Town in London and was excited to discover one in Liverpool. To my disappointment I was welcomed by rude staff and derogatory language. Arriving at the first restaurant,we were told we had to wait 15min for a table,...More
