What to Expect
Greet your guide at a central, pre-arranged location and embark upon your exploration of Shanghai’s diverse food scene.

What an incredible night it was. From a welcome drink at the pick up to an absolutely stunning lamb encore!! Don't even think about other option... Book with Untours, sit back and enjoy the evening. And as Kelvin says... "pace yourself"! Delicious!

Great tour with very delicious regional Chinese food. Our guide Kelvin was very friendly and knowledgable. My favorite part of the tour was the Sichuan restaurant (Chili chill) as I love spicy food and all the dishes there were not only spicy but very flavorful. I would 100%

The food was really great and our guide Kelvin was both engaging and informative. He was very accommodating with preferences and dietary restrictions so everyone left very full. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone that's in China for the first time or even people

Hi Vida - thanks for reviewing UnTour Food Tours! We are so glad we were able to provide dishes that catered to your group's dietary restrictions on this tour! We know how hard it can be traveling through a country with a language barrier like China when you have dietary restrictions, so we have done our best to create experiences that are vegetarian-friendly and food-allergy-friendly wherever possible. Our tours in Beijing are both vegetarian-friendly too, if you’re heading up that way. Happy eats!
