Chinatown in Toronto is vast, run down, and old school. Lots of restaurants with steaming randomness and ducks hanging in the windows. Old world trading companies mixed in with old and new restaurants, murals, and urban grit. Reminded me of the John Cassavetes movie "The...More

Easy to find. Not far from the downtown area. Lots of shops and restaurants. Not as nice as Chinatown in San Francisco, but not bad.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces

Take the 192 Rocket to the subway and take the subway into Downtown. $3 compared to $22. No brianer. Use google maps to work out the stops - thats what we did and saved $80 for our round trip.
