A very good evening waking tour, went to a number of local restaurants which I wouldn’t have gone to as a tourist. Especially the charcoal grill restaurant which was owned by the minor ethnicity owners, and the Michelin recommended noodle shop, very nice tasting food. Our guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable with good conversation all along the tour. Very enjoyable, highly recommended 🥰

My husband and I signed up for this food tour with a group. Our guide Jim was friendly and knowledgeable. He chose excellent spots and dishes, and shared tons of great insight into the origin of the dishes. He also made special accommodations for my dietary restrictions while still keeping the tour fun. We had a great time eating, chatting and talking about Chinese culture. It was a highlight of our trip to Shanghai!

I really loved this experience because the area is energetic and vibrant. All of the food was really good. The locals are very friendly. The beer bar was an amazing way to see locals be social. The food exposure is beyond just the western expectation and you definitely won’t regret it. Kiki is so personable and a great guide.

Jade was a delightful guide. We enjoyed all the varieties of food during our tour and a little history lesson on top made it perfect.
