Houston, TX has a sizeable Chinatown area. It stretches east and west of the Intersection of Bellaire Blvd and Beltway 8 (a.k.a. Sam Houston Tollway).

Many street signs and businesses have Asian and English lettering displayed.

The sheer number of businesses and volume of traffic on Bellaire Blvd make a slow (enjoyable) cruise through the area near impossible. Many of the restaurants accept cash only. A fair number of the building exteriors are less than appealing as well. That is unfortunate because some of the “hidden gems” of restaurants are located there.

A more comprehensive guide would be possible if Trip Advisor were to add a neighborhood in the Houston restaurant listings for “Chinatown”. It is close to the Westchase District but should definitely be treated as a separate area.
