Fabulous guide

We really enjoyed Rahim. He was informative, warm, funny and genuine. The dim sum restaurant was our favorite. We got a chance to sample 6 different dim sum and dumplings. All were delicious. The Peking duck house was a little disappointing because we only got one course of the duck. Our least favorite was the Malaysian restaurant. We were supposed to go for dessert, but the dessert restaurant was not open.

We have taken several food tours in Manhattan and Brooklyn. I would have given the tour 5 stars, but it was a little pricey for the food.

This was an excellent tour - our guide was extremely knowledgeable about both the food and the history of Chinatown. Importantly to me, he was also very enthusiastic about it, which made coming out on a rainy day well worth it. Money well spent!

Bert was very knowledgeable, having lived in Chinatown for several yrs. He was enthusiastic and seemed to have good rapport with the shop owners. Food was very good and mire than enough.

My friend and I have taken 2 other eating tours with Foods of NY before but I think this one was the best so far. The portions were sizable and satisfying. The food tasted amazing( especially the Peking Duck) and our guide Bert was full of historical and gastronomical facts. He clearly loves food and NY. Great day.

Recently, our family joined the Chinatown walking food tour -- what fun! We ate at 3 completely different restaurants. The settings were unique -- and the food was delicious. Bert was our guide -- and he was knowledgeable & caring that each individual in the group had a positive experience. Thanks for sharing Chinatown with us!

Excellent guide ( one of the best I have had on any tour) good choice of food and very informative. I am a New Yorker who has often been to Chinatown and I still learned a lot and discovered new places to check out. I highly recommend the tour for locals and tourists.
