Manchester’s China Town has what is thought to be
one of the largest Chinese communities outside of China and possibly
the largest in Europe. Therefore, the city and region naturally boast
a large number of Chinese, Eastern and other Oriental restaurants and
cuisines. Whilst there are many located centrally in China Town there
are innumerable others to be found in the wider surrounding region of
Greater Manchester.
Several styles of Chinese cuisine have emerged as popular around the
world, each originating in a different regions of China. The most popular
traditional Chinese dishes include sweet & sour dishes, crispy duck
and dim sums, and food styles includes Szechwan, Pekingese and Cantonese
cuisines. In China, cooking is regarded as an art form, allowing for
creative and stylistic variations to recipes and menus.
