We enjoyed the Chinese Cultural Center a short walk from our hotel. Inside the gorgeous entry, gardens, fish pond and pagodas are restaurants and even an authentic Chinese grocery store. We ate twice at Szechuan Palace Restaurant. Food was excellent! Loved everything about this place!

Try dishes with ingredients you've never heard of, open yourself to great surprises. There is also a market where you can buy wood fungus and tiger lily buds and fermented vegetables and fresh and frozen fish. Food is very good.

This is an easy sidelight from many area hotels even on foot. It is a little oasis of statuary, water and landscaping elements with dining nearby. For a little culture shock, walk thru the chinese grocery as well.

I visited the Chinese Cultural Centre to tour the statues and displays. I was thoroughly impressed with the historical info presented and buildings. The Centre is nicely laid out for a walk around the buildings.

This is a one stop place for Eastern groceries, doctors and a nice restaurant. It is close to the airport, so if you are a business traveler staying nearby, I bet this is pretty close for you. The store is huge if you need any...More

Everything is mediocre. The only lure is the food market store that seems to have a pretty good selection of Asian products. Nothing special about the food court in the food store.

Yes businesses have left but 99 Market is still the bomb for Asian foods & groceries! We always loved the pond and garden around the buildings and they have been redone too. 99 Market is a great Asian grocery story that I have been too...More
