There is a Chinatown in Manchester which you can visit if you're in the mood for some great Chinese food. Check out the archway which is pretty interesting. However, I've been to better Chinatown's so if you miss it I wouldn't be too worried. It's in the same neighbourhood as the Ibis Hotel.
Go to Chinatown
The magnificent Chinese Arch (see photo) standing proudly over Faulkner Street, shows the importance of Chinatown for Manchester. The arch, the first true Imperial Chinese arch erected in Europe, looks as though it might have stood there for a hundred years. Yet it has been there merely since 1987 and Chinatown is still less than thirty years old.
You really should try and visit the 4 intersecting streets that make up Manchester's Chinatown. Go for a walk, have a meal, just go there and soak up that wonderful atmosphere.
China Town in Manchester is not as big as the one in London but it is worth a visit to see the chinese arch there are also many restraunts in the area offering good deals on lunch and dinner.

Chinatown - in the middle yet so far away
Chinatown is a very small section of Manchester but nonetheless very vibrant with scores of restaurants.
Manchester only has a small Chinatown and its Chinese Arch may not be as big as the one in Liverpool but its still pretty impressive and was crafted by Peking tradesmen skilled in this fine art.
