Explore London’s China Town, home of some amazing restaurants and cheap eats.

In any of the world’s major cities, you can find an enclave of Chinese restaurants, full
of colour and late-night gems, with plenty of well-kept secrets tucked away in dark corners.

London’s Chinatown is
no exception.

Gerrard and Lisle Streets
– on the south side of Shaftesbury Avenue, near the West End – are the main thoroughfares.

If you’re after something quick, cheap and informal, then check out Candy Café or Rasa Sayang, both on Macclesfield Street.

For dim sum or a swankier
sit-down meal, head to Wan Chai Corner or Haozhan on Gerrard Street.

But ultimately, the beauty
of Chinatown is that you’ll find your own favourite haunts and bargains that will keep you coming back on warm summer nights.
