If you are using Apple Maps, please search "Jinfeng Mansion". Taxi Direction: 金凤茶餐厅,东渚安浜路229号近江苏路。 Traffic and taxis can be unpredictable, so to make sure you arrive on time and do not miss your tour, we recommend taking the subway (directions below). In fairness to all who arrived on time, we will leave sharply at the tour start time and do not accept latecomers. Public Transport Directions: Take Line 2/11 to the Jiangsu Road stop and use Exit 4. Turn left (west) on to Yuyuan Rd when you exit the metro and walk 50 meters to Jiangsu Rd. Turn left (south) onto Jiangsu Rd and walk 150 meters south down Jiangsu Rd to Dongzhu'anbang Rd.

Hi Jay - Thanks for your kind words - the best thing about food tours is getting to sample SO MUCH FOOD in just a few hours, especially when you're traveling solo and have limited stomach/table space. We're glad to hear you took our advice to come hungry and enjoy all the tastings we sample along the tour route. Thanks for eating with us!

This was a small, well-coordinated and informal tour, led by charming and knowledgeable tour guides. The choice of eating places and food was excellent and gave us a real appreciation of the variety of Chinese cuisines on offer across the country (and across Shanghai!).
