Much as I hate to admit, Chinatown is often one of the shabbiest parts in any given city. But the Kobe Chinatown is different- perhaps because the Japanese are over-the-edge-ly hygienic.
As a Hong Kong local, I'd say the "Chinese food" offered there are not exactly genuine, but still good nonetheless.
Beware of some gourmet traps though- I went to a buffet that only charges 999 yen and bang, what a disaster!! The food was all cold, the shrimp chips stale, and the only edible dish was the salad. That restaurant is right next to the central Pavilion and very near to the place which sells tasty pork buns. So my tip is, beware when choosing where to eat!
