Myself and my partner have high standards and expectations and this private local food tour did not disappoint and is a genuinely unforgettable experience. It introduced us to a range of ‘eateries’ some of which were ‘tucked-away’ historic small restaurants and hawker stalls as well taking-in culturally diverse temples and other fascinating sights.

We had an amazing and charming personal guide called ‘TK’ who, during the tour, steered us through over 10 dishes which included Indian, Chinese, and Malay as well as frequently introducing us to the fascinating vendors – some of whom are very senior in age and sadly when some of them finally retire their business will end with them.

This private tour (which was longer and more generous than the advertised 4 hours) took place at a time of our choosing and TK, who also handled the booking, was keen to understand our needs, likes and dislikes and following our original confirmation during booking of our dislike of monosodium glutamate (MSG) restructured the tour itinerary to suit us.

We highly recommend this tour and actually want to do it again next time we visit Kuala Lumpur!

Ten out of ten for this private tour and for ‘TK’.

My wife and I came to Kuala Lumpur for two nights. Nadia is an
exceptional food tour guide and she made our tour very enjoyable. She
took us around many local restaurants and areas in central Kuala
Lumpur and she customized the tour to our liking and tastes. She
emanates positive energy and has a very genuine character. You will
never go wrong with Nadia!

We had a great Food Tour this evening with May.

She was an interesting, knowledgeable and informative guide who adapted the tour to suit us.

We sampled a fantastic range of food at some authentic street food venues and she introduced to some fantastic foods we would never have tried on our own!

A truly unique experience in this amazing city.

Thank you May!

We spend a wonderful evening tasting delicious food in vibrant and colourful locations. May did an excellent job showing us around and giving us an insight on local food and culture. For us this was a highlight of our tour and we can recommend this tour with May as a „must do“ for Kuala Lumpur!

Average food tour in average corners of the city. Quite expensive for the tour duration and food types experienced (£50 per head). We've done more varied, inspiring tours in other parts of Malaysia and Asia.

We had a great experience with May as our guide in Kuala Lumpur. I've
done a few walking food tours in different places but my friends had
never done one before, and they really enjoyed it. I found May to be
one of the best guides I've ever met - she knew a great variety of
places to take us to eat, from hipster cafes to back street food
stalls (with fantastically tasty chicken rice!) and also gave us some
great insights into landmarks around KL. I definitely recommend May as
your guide in KL.

Thank you R. My family really enjoyed the 3hr tour. From the
wonderful variety of food tastings, to the interesting temple and
cultural history information. Appreciate you customising the tour as
well to fit in some specific food requests. The seven of us had a
great time. We only had a few hours in KL so this was the perfect
thing to do. Highly recommended!

Make sure you take a big appetite with you on this food tour. Nadia
took us to eat Malaysian, Indian and Chinese dishes in different parts
of the city. She knows all the best places. We even tried durian for
the first time. A great way to see the different cultures of this
fascinating city.
