Fodor's Review

Recognizable by its 5 roofs, 64 dragons, and 2 huge lions, the Chinatown Gate is the official entrance to the Chinatown District. During the 1890s Portland had the second-largest Chinese community in the United States. Today's Chinatown has shrunk to a handful of blocks with a few shops, grocery stores, and so-so restaurants (there are better places for Chinese food outside the district).

Not much "china" in this China Town

Overpriced and dull. There are only two or three shops of interest in the entire area and the food is nothing to write home about. Skip Portland and go to Seattle.
