“If you have not seen one in another city, check it out!”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

Most Chinese restaurants have moved out of this area and I would not go when it's dark. The "Entertainment District" is right there and it's kind of seedy.

“Reminds me of the Trojan Horse”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

The Trojan Horse was a ruse and once inside the gates the enemy unloaded. This arch reminded me of that story as I spent very little time after going through the gate. I should have read these reviews and saved some time. However, having said that, it is an impressive structure right in the middle of Portland, OR. Don't waste your time going through it though.

“Downtown Portland Oregon Chinatown - not much to see”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

The arch is amazing but there is not that much else to see.
Just a few blocks away is VooDoo Donuts ( a must DO when visiting Portland Oregon )
Plenty of shopping to do in the area of Down Town Portland.

Again the arch is amazing to see from the road but thats it. Stop and take some pictures and then head on down and get a VooDoo Donut

“Impressive”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

Portland's Chinatown isn't very large as Chinatowns go.

However the gate is very spectacular. You'll probably expect much more once you go through it...don't!

“Just a Gate”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

The only Chinese thing about this area is this gate. It's a small area with a few Chinese restaurants and shops. You would need less than 20 minutes to see it. All this area looks a little decrepit and empty.
There is also a botanical garden that has a nice store.
