We so enjoyed this evening food tour. Charles was an excellent guide, so much fun. We particularly enjoyed the Malaysian food night market. A fabulous and full in more ways than one! evening.

This is a very late review as I actually completed it in July last year, but this is quite possibly the best food tour I have ever been on! Even now I dream of Malaysian carrot cake, it was that good! We tried a whole variety of Malaysian foods with roots in Indonesian, Indian and China, and we would never have seen or tasted half of this food if we'd been out alone. The markets and hawker center was amazing and all of the food was prepared in front of us. We were the only two people on our tour and we must have eaten for about 50 people! Do not eat before going on this trip as you need room to try everything. You will not be disappointed! Charlie was very informative too and knew all of the vendors at the market we went to and were all very happy to show us how they were cooking and preparing food and pose for photos! I would go back to Kuala Lumpur just to do this tour again I loved the food that much!

Highly recommend this tour. Farah our guide was the best, her food and cultural knowledge amazing, she was hilarious and we had a lot fun!!
Good instructions for the meeting place, lots and lots of food and drinks. Anything we liked Farah would order more. Detailed explanations of what we were eating. We drove in Farahs car to 3 significant local food eateries and then she drove us back to out Hotel.
A must do if you're in KL

Wow! Probably the best money I've ever spent on a tour. Charlie, our guide, was so enthusiastic about the food, history and cultures of Malaysia. He showed us three different areas of Kuala Lumpur while taking us to three eating places and then through a street food market while having us taste samples of noodles and fruit. He then drove us to our respective hotels as the metro was closing. This is a must do for visitors of KL and I hope you have Charlie as a guide. You won't regret your decision!

Nasi Lemak

This traditional 'breakfast' food was the highlight of the tour. I ordered this every time I saw it for the remaining 2 weeks of our trip through Malaysia.


Mean Nasi Lemak!

As a tourist, you wouldn't think of stopping by this eatery. Farrah brought us here and we enjoyed the nasi lemak and soup!!
