The first time I visited Chicago Chinatown was about 10 years ago but this time they have opened more authentic Chinese restaurants from noodle, hot pot, to bakery. Since it's closed to the downtown Chicago, it's great stop for food while visiting Chicago. The parking...More

I love this place. It is the most Chinese in Chicago. Most of the food there is authentic Chinese and if you want to eat good Chinese food, try Chinatown.

I will say that if you compare Chicago's Chinatown to New York's or San Francisco's then you'll surely be disappointed. That being said they do have a few good options for restaurants and the usual shops selling everything from cheap knick knacks to more high...More

When I miss eating moon cakes or Asian desserts i take the nearest train station to china town. There are many gift shops and restaurants around the area. I highly suggest taking the train instead because traffic tends to get really heavy.

It is small. You can walk the few blocks past the gates in about 10 minutes. There is nothing to see down any of the side streets. There are a few shops and restaurants. There is also a 2 level outdoor strip mall full of...More

Chinatown’s are, and should be, memory places for a proud culture. Chicago’s Chinatown - from our brief visit - seems to reflect this ideal. There are several good bakeries, dim sum spots and full restaurants to choose from. Lots of shopping options also can be...More

There's blocks and blocks of many things to see here. Plenty of restaurants, shopping stores, and souvenirs. Beware its hard to find a restroom here.

An average performance though it had more potential earlier. We had Salt and pepper Squid, Crab Rangoon (these were well cooked and melted in the mouth), home style pork and fried wonton's. The seating hasn't changed over the years and needs a change now.

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures

CAI, Phoenix are other good places if you like Dim Sum. The other ones mentioned are fine, as well.
