We had a great time. Our guide Burt was knowledgeable, informative, interesting and did an excellant job. The food and choice of restaurants was outstanding. Our experience was enhanced with Burt's details regarding the various dishes we were being served along with interesting tid bits of history regarding Chinatown. We have already told, neighbors, friends and family about the good time we had. We are planning to go on the Village tour next, which was highly recommended by one of the couples we met from our group.

Fun in Chinatown

Raheem was very knowledgeable and personable. It was really great to experience dim sum, as we have never gone to a dim sum restaurant and were unaware of what it involved. Also learning about Peking Duck was a lot of fun and something we had sever had before. The Malaysian restaurant was also interesting and somewhere we might try again in the future. The dessert was amazing and completely unexpected.

We have gone on all of your food tours and always bring the booklets with us when we go to New York so we can visit some of our favorite finds.

Yes we really enjoyed this - obviously the food was excellent (we actually went back to Dim Sum Go Go two days later for more) but the really great thing about this tour was the introduction to the best/recommended places. We have been to NY's Chinatown before but it can be confusing - even intimidating - if like us you are unsure about trusting either the guidebooks or your instincts in terms of the sheer volume of restaurants. What the tour did for us was to highlight where to go, where to avoid and what to look for in terms of quality. Rahim's enthusiasm was very positive. We'd recommend to others without hesitation.

Tour was excellent,even on a very windy and rainy day.Tour guide kept it fun even with the miserable weather.Food had a nice variety,,ie,Dumplings,Peking Duck,Malaysian Curry,etc..The time outside was probably less then normal due to the weather but the guide did a nice job explaining the community and it's history.People's eating preferences and allergies were easily handled.Instead of a scheduled pork dumpling,I had a chicken one.Others who had a seafood allergy received different ones instead of the seafood dumplings.All handled smoothly and professionally.All in all,a nice few hours

The tour exceeded our expectations. The food was very varied, and very good. No feeling that we got anything but their best. It also was Lunar New Year, and the atmosphere in Chinatown was joyous.

We did the Chinatown tour this past weekend. Our tour guide was Bert. He was a wealth of knowledge and my group of 8 loved him. We have down several other tours and we have always been very pleased with Food of New York tours.

Diese Tour war wirklich ausserordentlich lecker! Und mit 3 Restaurants und verschiedensten Gerichten auch sehr üppig. Leider war das unser letzter Abend, denn die lokalen Geschichten und Orte haben durchaus animiert, sich ein paar locations nochmal näher anzusehen. Besonders das Dim Sum Go Go und die empfohlene Eisfactory hätte ich gerne eher gekannt :o)

Rajheem is a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. We sat down at most of the restaurants we visited and had stood for a few (2?). The food was very good. We had dim sum, Pekin Duck, authentic fried rice, eggplant dish, and a wonderful dessert. He took us to the "true" Chinatown and told us a good amount of history. He also showed us an underground tunnel in Chinatown. He told us where to eat afterwards and showed us this club where they make mind altering drinks. Will definitely going there later in the future. He moves at a very good pace and you can definitely tell he loves his food.
