Welcome to Chinatown!
Located on Greenville Avenue north of Main Street is the cultural center of the Chinese-American community in the metroplex, Chinatown. The Chinatown community was started by a community of Chinese investors who purchased the shopping complex in the mid-80s. At this time, many Chinese immigrating to Dallas came to Richardson as engineers and scientists, employed by either Texas Instruments or Rockwell International. The shopping complex was originally constructed in the early 1960s and was called the Richardson Terrace Shopping Center.
Today, DFW Chinatown is a major destination for Asian food, shopping, and events in Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Restaurants in DFW Chinatown serve a variety of Asian cuisine including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese, and Vietnamese food. At the core of this community is the Dallas Chinese Community Center, a non-profit organization that works to promote Chinese culture in the metroplex. The center routinely hosts cultural events for the region.
