Delicious, fun and informative

This was a fascinating adventure with our guide Burt. The high light of the excursion was authentic Peking Duck carved by a chef who has done this for 50 Years! What a master!! Loved the cultural stroll through Columbus Park with Oriental Singers and table after table of folks playing cards. Burt's historical narrative was interesting as well.

good tour of chinatown and good food

i thought as a whole the food was good. there were comments about the size of the pho or the order of eating the pho, but I thought the portion size and the order that we ate the pho was good. Pho is mostly broth in a big bowl so maybe the others thought that the portion size was big. but I think when you just look at the solid food in the bowl, the amount was just right. The tour guide was good. He talked a little to fast so I missed a word here or there but all in all he gave us interesting information. And i thought it was important that he spent a lot of time in Chinatown before he became a tour guide. This is my 3rd tour with your company, (a couple years ago I went on the Chelsa and Greenwich Village Food Tours) and I plan to come back.

Phenominal. Educational. Delicious.

This was a very educational and delicious food tour. Bert, our tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable of the culture of Chinatown providing us with history and modern information on all the "stops" we made. What I liked about this tour was that we were able to sit for some of the tastings. The dim sum, Peking duck and Pho portions were perfect and filling. The tea shop and candy store were also great! Bert was patient with the group for potty breaks too! I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in learning about Chinatowns culture and delicious foods!

The host was very entertaining. He gave us some history, explained a little bit of the different cultures, backgrounds of the restaurants we went to and the ones we just walked past. The host had so much general knowledge of the area.

Next time I'm in New York I will do this tour again, Because the restaurants I was told are constantly being reviewed, and thus the tour will always change.

Love love love.

Amazing food with a side of history
Sat, Aug 23, 14   10:30 AM Mirasol Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
My expectations of this food tour was to walk to a few restaurants and try their popular dishes. Not only did I get to try appetizers and smaller portions of popular dishes, I learned about the foods and a little history of Chinatown. Our tour guide, Raheem, broke it down when it came to pretty much everything. On top of that, he was very funny, entertaining and ready to answer any questions. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone, and plan on booking another food tour on my next vacation.

My friend and I planned a NYC trip to celebrate a birthdat. I had been on a food tour during a previous trip to Puerto Rico and it was a highlight. After investigating food tour companies in NYC it became clear Foods of NY Tours were the best in the business. We were not disappointed! the Chinatown tour was amazing! The food was excellent, the guide Raheem was hilarious and knowledgeable, and the fellow attendees were friendly. Highly recommended for anyone visiting NYC!

Terrific tour -- enthusiastic leader and good food

Bert has a wonderful personality, he is very welcoming, and very knowledgeable. The fact that we had such a small group meant a very special experience. We got to interact more with each other and with Bert and his colleagues. We got to critique a new menu, for example. My only suggestion (especially because we visited the Tenement Museum the next day) is that maybe the various cuisines and food ways could be tied together. Since a Vietnamese menu is being introduced, maybe some explanation of how the various Asian cuisines may have affected each other.
