We ate champon and kakuni, and then got some manju with apricots inside. A great place for lunch. Parking nearby.

Our group spent some time strolling through China town and then we enjoyed a lunch in a nice Chinese restaurant on a rainy afternoon. We ate at a nice restaurant by the entrance and we had a big table at the back. Our tour guide just ordered a lot of different things and everyone shared. I've never eaten Chinese food... More

Interesting to stroll through. It contains several streets of fairly concentrated Chinese shops and eateries. Within easy walking distance from tram stop.

A must try in this enclave are the steamed roast pork buns for dine in or takeaway. There is a particularly famous stall rightly delicious just beside the main pedestrian square. Shops here sell all manner of Chinese memorabilia including music & various cultural necessities. Nagasaki is a historical entry port or point for foreign influences hence a melting pot... More

Shinchi Chinatown can be reached by the tram. It is just a short street with mainly Chinese restaurants offering mostly Chinese and some Japanese cuisine. At 5pm on a weekday, I saw very few shops open. Okish for dinner but not worth taking trouble to go.

We walked through one night shortly after sundown. While a few places were closed the atmosphere was still enjoyable and there were numerous Chinese restaurants if you felt like Chinese food.
