There are many traditional Chinese restaurants in Manchester with the first, the Ping Hong on Mosley Street, opening in 1948.
By 1960, sixteen more restaurants were open and the boom continued well into the '70s with the 600 capacity Willow Garden opening in 1962, followed later by Kwok Man (1972), Charlie Chan's (1973), the Woo Sang (1976) and probably the most famous Chinese restaurant in Europe, the Yang Sing (1978).
Whilst many restaurants are located around China Town in Manchester city centre, there's also a huge choice of Chinese restaurants elsewhere in the city and the surrounding area.
