Started off with steamed and fried dumplings. Then we had peking duck. Next we moved on to an eggplant dish and fried rice. We ended with a yummy custard tart. I really enjoyed the trip. My favorite was the dumpling but everything was good. I really enjoyed the guide explaining to us all about the food. I never eat Chinese food because I usually can't find any good restaurants but obviously that's not a problem in Chinatown. Only negative thing I can mention is that the recommendation guide we received seems to be a bit out-dated. We went to one of the restaurants listed on the guide and virtually nothing recommended on the guide was actually on the menu at the restaurant. Makes you wonder how often they update the thing. Overall a great experience and next time I am in NYC I will go to more of these food tours.

Can't recommend this tour enough, Burt our tour guide was awesome, he really put the cherry on top of the sundae. I wanted to visit Chinatown but know I wouldn't have gotten anything out of it if I hadn't gone on this tour. I was able to sample tons of different foods and got a brief historical/clutural briefing which heightened the experience of sampling the food. Plus our tour guide ate regularly at each of the establishments we went, you could see his excitement & joy over the food we were tasting and the neighborhood we were visiting. The food was great, with lots of variety, and perfect portions so that you could enjoy the whole tour. I will definetley go on another tour with this copy in the future.

Can't say enough good things about this experience... Tour guide (Bert) was super personable & funny. Told us so many interesting things about the neighborhood & the food. Fantastic food. Definitely wasn't hungry at the end of the day. The peking duck was my favorite part. The pace was perfect. Didn't feel rushed, but also didn't get bored. Group size was nice. Small but not awkwardly small. Felt comfortable around everyone.

Had a great time on this tour. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and funny. As a local, learned so much about a neighborhood I thought I already knew. The food was delicious and our guide gave us lots of tips on other places to try in the future for different specialties to make further culinary exploration easier and more accessible. Will definitely be taking another tour soon and hope to have Brett as my guide again!

I really enjoyed the tour! Loved, getting to try all the different foods. My favorite was the Peking duck & dim sum. I had to leave a little early so did not get to try the custard, which was okay as I can not have milk products. Our guide, Bert, did a wonderful job of answering question and giving us the history of the area. I would highly recommend this tour and our wonderful guide Bert!!!!

It was a first time food tour for me and I enjoyed it very much. The food was excellent as well as the tour and the tour guide. I can only but recommend this tour. Should I have the chance to come back to NYC, I will for sure take one of the other tours offered by Foods of New York.

Tour Guide (Bert) excellent (knowledgeable and interesting). Tour price too high considering food served.
