For chinese new year the decorations are incredible

It's very particular, and the strangest thing is that it's in the center of London. It's near Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly that are traditionally very English, and then suddenly you find yourself in these 4-5 streets that take you to Asia. Everything is written with words you don't understand, the street is lively, people scream and run, it's another rhythm, another world. You can eat at one of the many Asian restaurants that are in general very cheap and most offer all you can eat for a fixed price. Early Chinese immigrants clustered in this neighborhood, doing business with sailors, and it was one of the most dangerous parts of the city. Now it's very quiet and touristy, but the shops are still very exotic and rare to find in the heart of the city. For Chinese New Year the decorations are incredible (usually late January, early February).

Great environment, restaurants & decorations

London's Chinatown is not as large as those of other major cities in the world, but it has a great environment, restaurants or decorations in the streets. It's located in the heart of the British capital, in Soho, near Trafalgar Square or Piccadilly Circus, north of Leicester Square, on Lisle & Gerrard street.

It is a magical world where one is on the pass one of three doors or arches that lead to the center of London's Chinatown. One is on Dean St. and two on Gerrard St. There are plenty of restaurants of all kinds of Chinese cuisine and typical products shops that country. Basically, people that run this picturesque neighborhood are of Asian origin, but also visit a large number of tourists from around the world and London citizens. The colorful night is spectacular. Each of the many restaurants in the area attracts its customers with seductive lights on their covers. We ate at two of them and had to ask the waitress, waitresses always never waiters, for knives and forks, because, first, I put the chopsticks classic and we have not had a good way of learning to use for to enjoy its use on these occasions. Near one of the entrances to the neighborhood spotted a Japanese restaurant, for a small fee and after waiting a respectable line of customers, we served the first night varied exquisite sushi I love when I cook it properly. Again another night and, after corresponding enqueued, we returned to sample some delicious dishes washed down with an excellent Japanese beer Sapporo.

Es un mundo mágico el que uno se encuentra al traspasar alguna de las tres puertas o arcos que dan paso a la parte central del barrio chino de Londres. Una de ellas está en Dean St. Y otras dos en Gerrard St.

Allí hay multitud de restaurantes de todo tipo de cocina china y tiendas de productos típicos de dicho país.

Fundamentalmente, las personas que recorren este pintoresco barrio son de origen asiático, pero también lo visitan una gran cantidad de turistas de otras partes del mundo y ciudadanos londinenses.

El colorido nocturno es espectacular. Cada uno de los numerosos restaurantes de la zona atrae a su clientela con seductores luminosos en sus portadas.

Nosotros cenamos en dos de ellos y tuvimos que solicitar de las camareras, siempre camareras nunca camareros, los correspondientes cuchillos y tenedores, ya que, de entrada, te colocan los clásicos palillos orientales y nosotros no hemos tenido el buen sentido de aprender a manejarlos para poder disfrutar de su utilización en estas ocasiones.

Cerca de una de las entradas al barrio localizamos un restaurante japonés que, por un módico precio y después de esperar una respetable fila de clientes, nos sirvió la primera noche un exquisito sushi variado que a mí me encanta cuando me lo preparan adecuadamente. Repetimos otra noche y, después del correspondiente turno de espera, volvimos a degustar unos exquisitos platos japoneses regados con una excelente cerveza Sapporo.

Even if you do not not know how to speak Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Laotian or Thai, panic a minimum English you will discover the fabulous London Chinatown in the heart of Soho, two of Covent Garden. I say great because it is very pretty face from the 13th district of Paris in France. Exit revolving towers in the sky. Chinatown located in London's West End has its main street, Gerrard Street Arches and traditional welcome its visitors, both local and tourists. Even the phone booths have the chance to see their shelters shaped pagoda. It is always crowded, to say that his attraction is the delight of discovery. The buildings do not exceed three floors and windows of restaurants are all equally appetizing each other. You can also attend the sublime spectacle showcases the lacquered ducks waiting to be consumed. No Tang brothers or Super Asia, not as independent which means I must say little more charm. The atmosphere is authentic and downright exotic by both proposed by the Asian decor products. If you pick a plan for lunch or dinner you will find among the fifty restaurants one that suits you. Le Soir Chinese Quartier lights leaving little lanterns release their redness in the darkness of London. It is also nice to go there. You can also find all sorts of herbal remedies for minor ailments in all genres. To get there, nothing more simple, or by subway at Oxford Circus station up towards Oxford Street, or when your potential getaway on the District or Soho to Leicester Square Station. I recommend finding because it is attractive and entertaining. This is the kind of place that is on all the good guides to London. So what are you waiting? Free Admission Great Value Good Price Discovery

Même si vous ne savez pas parler le chinois, le vietnamien, le coréen, le laotien ou le thaïlandais, pas de panique un minimum d'anglais vous permettra de découvrir le fabuleux quartier chinois de Londres en plein centre du quartier de Soho, à deux pas de Covent Garden. Je dis fabuleux, car il est très joli face à celui du 13ème arrondissement de Paris en France.

Exit les tours gravitant dans le ciel. Le Chinatown situé dans le West End londonien propose sa rue principale, la Gerrard Street ou Arches traditionnelles accueillent ses visiteurs, aussi bien locaux que touristes. Même les cabines téléphoniques ont la chance de voir leurs abris en forme de pagode. Il est toujours bondés, faut dire que son attraction fait le bonheur des découvertes. Les bâtiments ne dépassent pas les 3 étages et les vitrines des restaurants sont toutes aussi appétissantes les unes des autres.

Vous pourrez également assister au sublime spectacle des vitrines aux canards laqués attendant d'être consommés. Pas de Tang frères ou de Super Asie, non que des indépendants ce qui fait je dois dire le petit plus de son charme. L'ambiance est authentique et carrément dépaysante tant par les décors proposé que par les produits d'Asie.

Si vous chercher un plan pour y déjeuner ou dîner vous trouverez parmi la cinquantaine de restaurants celui qui vous conviendra.

Le Soir le Quartier Chinois s'illumine laissant les petites lanternes lâchent leur rougeur dans l'obscurité de Londres. C'est tout aussi agréable de s'y rendre. Vous trouverez également toutes sortes de plantes médicinales pour les petits maux en tout genres.

Pour s'y rendre, rien de plus simple, soit en métro à la station Oxford Circus en remontant en direction de Oxford Street, soit lors de votre potentielle escapade sur le Quartier de Soho ou encore à la station de Leicester Square . Je vous recommande la découverte, car elle est séduisante et distrayante. C'est le genre de lieu qui figure sur tous les bons guides pour Londres. Alors qu'attendez-vous?

Bonne Découverte

Near leicester square, in soho, china...

Near Leicester Square, in Soho, Chinatown has become since the 80s a real Asian enclave in the city of London. The quartuer has a high concentration of restaurants and Asian shops of all kinds. Here the scenery is almost complete as fronts feature decorations from another continent. Chinatown is also home to a single park, Columbus park, built on an old seedy New York area, but today very pleasant. The area has obviously built its reputation on the Chinese and Vietnamese food and you'll necessarily find the restaurant that suits you! Enjoy also called "exotic" decorations, shops of all kinds, and the atmosphere came straight from another continent that is in the area.

Près de Leicester square, dans le quartier de Soho, Chinatown est devenu, depuis les années 80 une véritable enclave asiatique dans la ville de Londres. Le quartuer abrite une forte concentration de restaurants, et commerces asiatiques en tout genres. Ici le dépaysement est presque total tant les devantures arborent des décorations d'un autre continent. Chinatown accueille aussi un seul et unique parc, Colombus park, construit sur un ancien quartier mal famé de New York, mais aujourd'hui très agréable. Le quartier a évidemment bâtit sa renommée sur la restauration Chinoise et Vietnamienne et vous trouverez nécessairement le restaurant qui vous conviendra! Profitez aussi des décorations dites "exotiques", des magasins en tout genre, et de l'atmosphère tout droit venue d'un autre continent qui règne dans le quartier.

A corner of china .. in london!

Rich colors and textures East, perhaps a little 'too-attracting tourists, the Chinese district of London is easily recognizable by the intense fragrance that fills up the air from its borders. In fact, once you get past the margin of Charing Cross Road, you will find yourself in a world apart, a square of medium size, with a small pagoda at the center, promises to be something much more intense, Gerrard Street, a long avenue lined by Chinese shops and restaurants and bordered by the large red gates in style. And a tip: do not go to a Chinese restaurant to savor believe the same tastes of Chinese restaurants Italians. Had nothing to do!

Un angolo di cina .. a londra!

Ricca di colori e strutture orientali, forse un po' troppo attira-turisti, il quartiere cinese di Londra è facilmente riconoscibile dagli intensi profumi che invadano l'aria fin dai suoi confini.

In effetti, una volta passato il margine di Charing Cross Road, ci si ritrova in un mondo a parte: una piazza di medie dimensioni, con al centro una piccola pagoda, preannuncia qualcosa di molto più intenso, Gerrard Street, un lungo viale tappezzato da ristoranti e negozi cinesi e delimitato da dei grandi cancelli rossi in stile.

E un consiglio: non entrate in un ristorante cinese convinti di assaporare gli stessi gusti dei ristoranti cinesi italiani. Non c'entrano assolutamente nulla!

A city within a city

In the middle of a restless London, Chinatown is always busy, especially during the New Year! On some streets, restaurants all as attractive as each other, bars, food shops, shops Personal care ... To define this area, two large gates on both other. It is said to be the oldest Chinatown in Europe, today it is legally recognized as separate and everything is in Chinese, good luck! But it is an area full of life, where ducks and pigs hanging painted in the windows of restaurants, where the stalls are filled with Chinese food ... it makes the mouth water!

Une ville dans la ville

Au milieu d’un Londres agité, le quartier chinois ne désemplit pas, d’autant plus pendant le nouvel an!
Sur quelques rues, des restaurants tous aussi attirants les uns que les autres, des bars, des boutiques d’alimentation, des boutiques de soins corporels…
Pour délimiter ce quartier, deux grands portails de part et d’autres. C’est parait-il le quartier chinois le plus ancien d’Europe, aujourd’hui il est reconnu juridiquement comme à part et tout est en chinois, bon courage !!! Mais c’est un quartier plein de vie, où les canards et les cochons laqués pendent dans les vitrines des restaurants, où les étales sont remplis de spécialités chinoises…ça met l’eau à la bouche !

London's chinatown

Located just above Leicester Square, the Chinatown of London is one of the best we have visited in the world. Less than that of New York and Lima in Peru, however, it offers very good places to eat Asian and interesting shops to find all kinds of produce sold much cheaper than in France. For the rest, a walk in this neighborhood offers a journey into the trip.

Le quartier chinois de londres

Situé juste au-dessus du square Leicester, le chinatown de Londres est l'un des meilleurs que nous ayons visité dans le monde entier. Moins grand que celui de New York ou Lima au Pérou, il propose toutefois de très bonnes adresses pour manger asiatiques et des boutiques intéressantes pour trouver toutes sortes de produis vendus beaucoup moins cher qu'en France. Pour le reste, une balade dans ce quartier offre un véritable voyage dans le voyage.

Right next Soho, London Chinatown surprises that we're not used to seeing this style neighborhoods in Spain. An ideal place to go to dinner at one of the hundreds of restaurants that offer buffet good Chinese food at a good price. Spectacular if you're out there in the middle of Chinese New Year.

Al ladito del Soho, el barrio chino de Londres sorprende a los que no estamos acostumbrados a ver barrios de este estilo en España. Un lugar ideal para ir a cenar a alguno de los cientos de restaurantes buffet que te ofrecen una buena comida china a buen precio. Espectacular si estás por allí en pleno año nuevo chino.

Chinatown

Chinatown, Chinatown in London. It is smaller than New York but still it attracts a lot of tourists. You have bars, food stores, but also a lot of Asian restaurants Chinese buffets. This area is located near Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square. It's more fun to visit at night, you will see the best decorations, the neighborhood lights. This is a total change of scenery.

Chinatown

Vous avez des bars, des magasins de nourriture asiatique mais également énormément de restaurants buffets chinois à volonté. Ce quartier se trouve prés de Piccadilly Circus et Leicester Square. C’est plus sympa de le visiter de nuit, vous verrez mieux les décorations, le quartier s'illumine. C’est un dépaysement total.

As in all big cities, London has a Chinatown located in Soho. Many Chinese restaurants and shops are a delight for tourists and locals. Very pleasant to walk in the evening. Lanterns, kiosks and signs in Chinese for visual, smell of roast duck for the senses, we believe it almost!

Comme dans toutes les grandes villes, Londres possède un quartier chinois implanté dans Soho. De nombreux restaurants et boutiques chinoises font le bonheur des touristes et des locaux. Très agréables de s'y promener en soirée. Lanternes, kiosques et panneaux en chinois pour le visuel, odeur de canard laqué pour les sens, on s'y croirait presque !

China town

We were advised to take a little trip to China Town, just to be a little disoriented from London "basic". And indeed, what a change! It feels completely elsewhere. My parents, bakers have even found a bakery in the neighborhood called "Wonderful pastry" where you could see cupcakes shaped pandas! It was funny.

China town

On nous avait conseillé de faire un petit tour à China Town, histoire d'être un peu dépaysé du Londres "basique". Et en effet, quel changement !! On se sent complètement ailleurs. Mes parents, boulangers-pâtissiers ont même trouvé une boulangerie-pâtisserie dans ce quartier appelée "Wonderful pâtisserie" où l'on pouvait voir des petits gâteaux en forme de pandas ! C'était rigolo.

Restaurants with care!

My big thing was I did not. It is good to see but it is nothing special compared to other cities. We ate at the restaurant Mr Wu (top of Piccadilly Circus before arriving at Soho) and was a regular Wok. All you put the slogan "Eat all you can" but then you either go with the feeling of having eaten really well. A advised us NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES EAT at restaurants that were in Chinatown if you did not want to suffer indigestion. It seems that the food is of good quality and that usually cause problems.

Cuidado con los restaurantes!

A mi no me resultó gran cosa. Está bien para ver pero no es nada del otro mundo comparado con los de otras ciudades. Nosotros comimos en el restaurante Mr Wu (al principio de Picadilly Circus antes de llegar al Soho) y era un Wok normal. Todos te ponen el lema de "Eat all you can" pero luego tampoco te vas con la sensación de haber comido super bien. A nosotros nos aconsejaron NO COMER BAJO NINGÚN CONCEPTO en los restaurantes que estaban en ChinaTown si no querias sufrir una indigestión. Parece ser que la comida no es de buena calidad y que suelen dar problemas.

Everyone knows that London is an expensive city! So an inexpensive way to eat is to go to Chinatown in Gerrard Street and Whitecomb street. Chinese restaurant you offer "BUFFET" or eat at will. Depending on the restaurant, the choice is more or less important, from the outside you can also see what is proposed. Chinatown is located between the stations of Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square, then in the center of London.

Tout le monde le sait, Londres est une ville chère ! Alors une façon peu onéreuse de se restaurer est d'aller dans Chinatown, dans Gerrard street et Whitecomb street. Les resto chinois vous proposent des "BUFFETS" ou vous mangez à volonté. En fonction des resto, le choix est plus ou moins importants, de l'exterieur vous pouvez d'ailleurs voir ce qui est proposé.
Chinatown se trouve entre les stations de métro Piccadilly Circus et Leicester Square, donc en plein centre de Londres.
