“Only the Gate!”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

I felt that there is nothing much to be seen or do here besides taking picture of the gate or stocking up on your Asian groceries. Didn't try the food here so can't comment on that.

My partner and I were staying in a hotel just around the corner and accidentally passed this incredibly beautiful place. We found it very intriguing and welcoming. Excellent piece of Chinese culture.

“A good place to stock up on Chinese ingredients!”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

You can't beat a good Chinatown, with the hustle & bustle, the fantastic smells coming from the numerous Chinese restaurants & great Chinese supermarkets.
Needed to stock up on Chinese ingredients for my store cupboard at home. Loads cheaper than getting from normal supermarket & lots of unusual stuff that's hard to source normally. Found a Thai supermarket with fresh Kaffir Lime leaves, Holy Basil & Green Papaya!
