Made the mistake of going there for dinner. Assumed that it would be at least similar to Chinatowns in Adelaide or Melbourne. Very limited food options, and the few restaurants there were all looking very tired. There was no Asian grocers there as well. All...More

Don't waste your precious time. There's nothing to see here - just a few shops and cafes/restaurants. Be aware - don't go in the early morning - a few unsavoury people lurk and it didn't feel the safest of places although there was a police...More

I totally agree with most of the latest reviews. Chinatown in Brisbane is boring. You'll find some shops and restaurants, however this place does not have any style. If you have already visited some famous (Sydney, Singapore etc.), than Brisbane Chinatown will totally disappoint you....More

Don't expect the glamour of the other world renowned China Town! this is just a couple of over-crowed slight grotty streets.. Alas I find myself here all too often myself & friends are suckers for overly lit garish cheap BYOB Chinese resturants arnt'we all?

This was very underwhelming as I had been there recently and loved it so much that I wanted to share it with family. However, when we got there majority of the shops were closed or for lease. Which made it a very boring experience. There...More
