Canberra’s Chinatown is not like the archways in Melbourne and Sydney. It is a street where Chinese restaurants gather. It is not very long. There are many restaurants with various flavors from the north to the south to the northwest of China. There are also several supermarkets. There are also scattered Indian and Thai dishes. There are parking spaces on both sides, but it seems that the parking spaces are pretty tight.
Canberra’s Chinatown is a great place where I found Jackie Chan’s graffiti wall! In Canberra, I also visited a friend's house. We ate the best Chinese food I have ever eaten together. The Chinese name is Da Ke. I ate mud crab for the first time, it is super delicious
Before coming here, the old girl repeatedly told: Don't hope too high, don't think about how lively, otherwise you will be disappointed. . . In fact, it is not Chinatown, Chinatown or something, at most a few shops, very small. . . blah blah blah, indeed I have repeatedly adjusted my psychological expectations. . . But here, oh, let’s go to the Dikson area of Canberra. There are many Chinese restaurants, Chinese food opened by Hong Kong people, middle and low-end Chinese food, as well as buffets. The business is good, and there is a barbecue restaurant. Beijing Quanjude Roast Duck and Nanjing Salted Duck, and there is a Shanghai restaurant opposite. These restaurants have their own characteristics, and they have a lot of business. In Canberra, Dixon is known as Chinatown and is also the center of the Canberra Asian community.
Strictly speaking, this place cannot be called Chinatown at all, and the scale is too small. It is estimated that the whole street will take 5 minutes to walk. Among them are small supermarkets in China, where you can buy some Chinese spices and other domestic products, and some small restaurants, which are small in scale. In short, it is not recommended to come to this Chinatown, there is no special feature. I personally feel that the Chinatowns in Sydney and Melbourne are quite large, and the Chinatowns in Adelaide are also decent. There are several Chinese supermarkets, and there are many Chinese restaurants. Not recommended to go to Chinatown in Canberra.
The most eye-catching is Jackie Chan's paintings. You can also buy some Chinese products.
