Houston is a top 8 when it comes to East Asian amenities, not a top 10. Dallas may be at the 10 spot and Atlanta wouldn’t.

In the same shopping center as 99 ranch, there is also a Daiso and Tesolife, which are japanese convenience stores.
Royal Lane area - older koreatown
Grand prairie + Garland - vietnamese concentration with lots of restaurants, food courts, etc. New Asia Times Square is in Grand Prairie.
I was going to post something similar. There’s small areas all over these communities with great food. Plano has some great Chinese food. The Asian Trade District in NW Dallas has a gods mix of different types of things.

Nor is there any Viet Town in Dallas of the caliber of Houston’s.

Haltom City is not the size of Houston's area but it is good sized. Tarrant Co, not Dallas Co.

The closest would actually be Walnut Lane in Garland more so than Haltom City. But yeah, both of them together wouldnt match Belaire Blvd.

Echoing this! The thing is the Asian community is spread out, and not in one corner. Search for Ranch 99 or 88c Bakery, you'll find a lively Asian community there.

Carrollton: Korean town. Search for H Mart and you'll find Korean supermarkets and restaurants nearby.
Richardson: Chinatown
Plano: Also Chinatown! Also Japan town! There are multiple Japanese supermarkets, and even conveyer Sushi restaurants -- Sushi comes to you on a conveyer! Super fun for kids!

Her/his poll says “Chinatown” so obviously East Asian.

East Asian? That is a big group. For Korean or Japanese, DFW is better. For Korean, DFW, no question. For Japanese, it is a wash but DFW has a slightly larger population. For Chinese, it is definitely Houston, no question.

Some one asked about Indian cuisine in Houston,
Indian district is not in Chinatown on Bellaire but on Hillcroft ,cant recall the cross street,it has jewelry shop,restaurants,grocery stores,electronics etc.
Houston now has 3 Chinatowns,oldest one is in downtown Houston,then the one on Bellaire and another one on Katy.
The one on Bellaire is now referred to as Asian Town due to influx of Burmese,Vietnames,and some Uighur,there are some Uighur restaurants there.
Hong Kong Mall is now almost 100% Vietnamese.
