Downtown Boston has one of the oldest and largest Chinatowns in the country. As such, the neighborhood offers plenty of authentic Chinese restaurants and hole-in-the-wall dumpling spots. Top-notch kitchens churn out delicate noodles, flavorful dim sum, and diverse regional specialties all over Boston, Cambridge and surrounding areas. Chinese restaurants are a popular and inexpensive late-night dining option in a city that is notorious for shutting down early; several of Boston’s top Chinese eateries get packed after 2am, when many of the best bars in Boston (and best clubs in Boston) close down. You'll also likely find some Chinese dishes served in style at the best Thai restaurants and Korean restaurants in Boston.
