Loved the tour so much last year we decided to do it again. We've had Bert for several tours and he never fails to deliver interesting history and facts about the area as well as providing delicious meals!

The guide was very good.However there was not enough of the history of the area.Also I did not enjoy the stop at the store nor the 3rd restaurant ABC.

Our guide was called Burt and he was very good and the small group was nice and friendly.We learnt quite alot about the area and enjoyed tasting different foods in different restaurants, being told about how it was made and about the flavours etc too. We found the meeting place a bit tricky to find, maybe a map would help with the written instructions.

We are father and a 21 year old daughter, on her release-from-the-army trip (yes, we are from Israel…).

The ‘foods tour' was part of our one week stay in NYC, and turned out to be one of the most wonderful experiences we had.

It revealed for us the secretes of Chinatown alongside with the wonders of the Chinese food, in a way we never experienced before.

The group was just the right size, with plenty of wonderful and colorful people, the places we visited topped one another in atmosphere and (of course) their wonderful dishes, and finally – our guide – Rahim – who truly wrapped it all the best way possible.

Worth every penny, great fun, superb tour.

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.

A delicious way to see Chinatown

This tour was great! There was plenty to eat and everything was delicious. The tour guide was excellent and it was a good mix of food and culture. I thought it was good value for money as a four course lunch in New York is unlikely to cost you much less than the cost of the tour.

Raheem (think I've spelled correctly) made this tour a delight. Of course, he had three fantastic first-rate restaurants to help him, as well as a batch of warm custard tarts for dessert from a Chinese bakery! But, he was a passionate advocate for the cuisines of China and a champion of their culture and their NYC community. What made the tour even more vital,was the fact that Raheem comes from a Muslim background and so was able to inject a true multicultural spirit into our walk and our dining. Both the tour and the guide should be considered local treasures. I recommend it to anyone who loves Chinese food, and BTW the Peking Duck was superlative, and I come from Vancouver, Canada, where good Mandarin chefs litter our Asian dining scene. Bravo!
