Great guide & great food.

This was our second tour with Foods of New York. The weather was really hot so this particular tour, with its sit-down format, was ideal - it enabled us to escape the sweltering heat and get to chat with other folks in the group. The guide was informal but informative. We learnt a lot about the neighbourhood, its history and the cuisine. Throughout the guide was attentive to the needs of the group. We really liked the sauces & dim sum that started the tour - the one with Chinese chives was our favourite. The food on the rest of the tour was good - and the visits to the tea shops were interesting. We returned to China Town later in the week and explored more of the area. If we come to to NYC again we'd repeat the same tour - thank you!

I thought the Chinatown tour was very informative and yummy. We were fed a lot of food, definitely enough for more than a meal. There were a lot of cool things on the menu that I would normally never try on my own. We had locals, international travelers, and domestic travelers like myself, who all really enjoyed the tour. I definitely want to do some of the other food tours next time I visit NYC.

Chinatown Food Walking Tour Review

The tour was 3 hours long and there was plenty to eat/taste, although the tour did not go too far you did find out the history of the area which I found very interesting, Good value for money, shame we had to fly back home to England the same day :(

Raheem was knowledgable, engaging and funny! My parents and I only wish we had done a Foods of NY Tour every time they visited over the past 6 years. Now I'm moving to LA!

Amazing Variety of Food

Our tour with Raheem was one of the highlights of our trip. This was our fourth tour with this company, and I think they are best food tour ever. We learned so much about the Chinatown history and area in addtion to tasting some really delicious food. We loved the Peking Duck and the Tiger Roll. Highly recommended.

Well worth the time and expense!

My mother and I recently took a weeklong trip to Manhattan. The Chinatown Food and Culture Tour was, most certainly, a highlight, if not THE highlight, of both of our experiences. Rahim, our tour guide, was amazing. He was personable and knowledgeable; he made sure he talked individually to every member of our tour group, and he was a veritable wealth of information about the area. Then there was the food! Absolutely delicious - everything was fantastic! It was a wonderful experience, trying new foods from authentic Chinatown restaurants. The peking duck in particular was phenomenal. If you have the chance to take this tour, I highly recommend it. It's an amazing experience!
