Nice and small with some good food options. Only one or two options for eating on the evening we visited, so would have liked more open - assume with Chinese New Year it will ramp up!

We prefer the older side with authentic dishes that have been the same for years. Highly recommend the Laksa and the Vietnamese place. The newly renovated side also has great food, but seems like they are relying on the fancy decor to sell the place,...More

A lovely way to spend a day with Chinatown and the markets next door. It can get a little crowded but there are plenty of places to sit and have a great tea or coffee. The free city rout bus stops here.

The crowds of people can't be wrong. Have a look, most days the food court is packed, the market is buzzing, there might even be a bit of music! Or visit iconic Lucia's restaurant in this terrific Adleaide must see location.

Depending on how folks count, its a single block or a few blocks. In any event it's a small area packed with Chinese shops and restaurants serving all manner of Chinese cuisine.

Pretty much what you come to expect from any China Town. A slice of the Orient in Adelaide with great food and service in the restaurants.
