Our guide really new his stuff and was so into what he was doing. It was such a great tour. Food was sensational and the information provided about its preparation even better. Couldnt recommend more highly, from the dumplings to the Peking duck and Egg tarts. Just a whole heap of fun.

This is my fifth tour with Foods of NY. I live locally and love exploring the neighborhoods of NYC with this tour company. I gave tickets to this tour to my mother, brother and sister as Christmas gifts so we can enjoy it together. The Chinatown Food and Culture Walking Tour was surprised me to be one of my favorite tours. We had an excellent guide named Rahim who was both smart and funny. The first two restaurants on tour - Dim Sum Go Go and Peking Duck House were first rate! I will definitely return for a visit.

Terrific tour. Excellent restaurants (dim sum and Pekin duck were outstanding), informative on the history of New York's Chinatown and Chinese restaurant etiquette, and also quite entertaining. This is the second time had Raheem as my Foods of New York Tours guide, and he was as well-versed, attentive and funny on this one as he was on the other (in this case, Central Village); major props to him for making sure the diverse tour group of largely out-of-towners had a truly enjoyable time (wet weather be damned).

Excellent insight to Chinatown and its food

Have now been on all the walking food tours and like the others this is highly recommended. It's different in that the three stops are all sit-down, i.e. no eating in the street. Therefore the stops were more in depth in information and quantity. The guide (Bert) really knew his stuff both in terms of the food preparation but also the history of the area.

My husband and I visit NYC very year in December. We've done tours of Harlem and Brooklyn - and can now add Chinatown to our list. We enjoyed the tour very much. Bert, our tour guide, was very professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The food was delicious and very satisfying. The restaurants were very clean with clean restroom facilities. The wait-staff at the restaurants were very courteous and well-trained. The owners/managers of the restaurants welcomed us and made us feel special and at home. We would highly recommend this tour.

The tour was really good. The guide seems to know a lot about the subject and to love Chinese culture. The restaurants were great, not gourmet, but let us have a good idea about Chinese food. I recommend it!

We had a great time learning about the history of the area and being introduced to some restaurants and places we want to go back to. Bert was a very good guide. He kept it light and fun.

The Chinatown tour exceeded all of our expectations. Bert was an amazing tour guide - we were entertained and informed from beginning to end. Saw places that we would never have experienced on our own. Highly recommend - was the highlight of our trip to NY.
