Best food of any tour I have done. Each stop was a memorable sit down meal,allowing for true enjoyment of the best dim sum, best Peking Duck,best Malaysian I have ever experienced. Considering taking tour again with different group!

The tour was quite a bit of fun. Loved Bert. I must say, I was surprised that many of the people on the tour weren't particularly adventurous eaters. But that's nothing to do with the tour, that's just people. The food was fantastic and I will definitely return to the dumpling restaurant. My only hesitation about recommending it to friends would be that it seems more suited to slower-paced people. I'm a bit of a whirlwind! Would love to take another tour when I'm in town again. I really appreciated the bits of neighborhood trivia and history. Thank you!

This was my fourth Foods of NY tour and it stood out from the others because it had a distinct cultural aspect to it. I took my boyfriend who was visiting from out of town and he thoroughly enjoyed the experience because it was very informative and we had very good portions at each of the tastings. The time flew by fast and although it felt like we covered a lot of ground, we didn't really travel that far and we felt that the amount of time between tastings was just right and we did not feel rushed. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants an introduction to Chinatown.

This is my fifth Foods of New York tour and just like all the previous tours, this one did not disappoint. Bert was our very enjoyable and thoroughly knowledgeable guide. It always amazes me the wealth of knowledge the guides on all the tours impart about the food and history of their areas. This tour was a little different than the others in that the tastings took place inside and seated. We had dumplings at Dim Sum Go Go, Duck pancakes at the Peking Duck House, and roti canai (Malaysian flatbread) which was served with a delicious dipping sauce. I have to say the presentation and serving of the duck pancakes was the most impressive. Three roasted ducks (heads included) were brought out and carved right in front of us. The pancakes were then assembled and served on platters. We concluded the tour at Golden Manna Bakery with egg custard tarts that were still warm. If you enjoy food, learning the history of different sections of NYC or just want to spend 3 hours having a REALLY good time, I strongly suggest you sign up for any of the Foods of NY Tours!

I admit - I was nervous about eating food I thought I would never eat. But it was all so delicious. I even had second helpings of one course. Bert (our Tour Guide) was humorous, informative and made the whole tour relaxing and fun. I will definitely participate in another food tour when I visit New York. This was my first but definitely not my last.

We had a great time on our Chinatown food tour. Curt made it a good time. All of the stops and food were great but having curt there made it all the more fun. This was our second time. Our first was the Greenwich village tour which was great too. Highly recommend for all ages

Our guide Bert was charming and knowledgeable ! He was very considerate of everyone's needs.

The choices of restaurants and the care that was given to us was exceptionable. I can't wait to come back and try more of the suggestions. I have taken almost every tour this company has to offer and each one is memorable and worth mention to everyone ,who tells me they are coming to Manhattan

Great time in Chinatown

The tour of Chinatown was excellent. The food at each of the restaurants was delicious. I found it hard to choose an item that was my favorite because we did not sample anything that I did not like. The restaurants and the foods were all very different from each other, which I enjoyed. Raheem was also a very knowledgable and friendly tour guide. Great day overall.

This was our second food tour with this company. We love them and will do another. The guides are awesome and you learn about the area and get AWESOME food. I'd never be able to find these places on my own. Definitely worth the money and time. Highly recommend!
