Brisbane's Chinatown is located next to Fortitude Valley, one of Brisbane city's live music venue and bar hot spots helping to put Brisbane, Australia on the cultural map.
Before you head out for a night of music, dancing and bar action, stop in to Chinatown next door to be treated at one of the restaurants serving authentic Asian cuisine.
Distinctive Chinese architecture, statues and lanterns set the scene for restaurants offering traditional Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Laotian, Malaysian and Vietnamese cuisine, at great prices.
The centre of Chinatown is the Chinatown Mall on Duncan Street, which is flanked by lots of fantastic Brisbane restaurants and shops. You'll find more Asian restaurants and grocery markets extending along busy Wickham Street.
Many restaurants in Brisbane often suggest you book ahead if you want to be sure of a table, but generally you will find a place for dinner in Chinatown without a reservation. Brisbane Chinatown restaurants lend themselves to this casual style of dining, where you are able to dine on a whim and can expect your meals to be delivered promptly.
Brisbane maps show Chinatown nestled between Spring Hill and Fortitude Valley, a short five-minute walk from the Brisbane CBD. Daytime markets are also held on Saturdays in the Chinatown mall, enabling shoppers to enjoy the pleasant Brisbane weather while shopping for interesting crafts, unique gifts and one-off fashion items.
A public car park is located in the mall, and street parking is available at limited times. The Fortitude Valley train station is minutes away on Wickham Street.
