Fantastic Guide, Amazing Food, Bonus History
Patrickofsometrades, 24-09-2022
We had Siddoz as our guide and he was a fantastic guide, host, and source of information. He took us to exactly the kind of places we were hoping to try but would have never found on our own. The food choices here are overwhelming, it was so nice to have someone help us narrow things down and sort out our tastes. As a bonus he showed us some gorgeous temples, and provided historical, religious, and cultural context for the places we visited and the foods we ate. We left satisfied and full and with a new friend.
Food tour across Chinatown area.

Povan, the guide, was great. He gave us a glimpse of Chinatown's hidden places, local foods, traditions, history. The tasting was great, chinese, malay and indian dishes, though the stations were more 6 or 7, not 10; total dishes were more than that. Do it, don't miss the opportunity.
Learned so much in such a short time.

Very high-quality, private tour. Siddoz was extremely skilled at tailoring the tour and information provided to what we were interested in learning and eating. Highly recommend.
Eat your way through KL! You won’t regret it!

Anyone with teenage boys will tell you - they sure can eat! Our teens are absolute foodies and were thrilled with this tour, as were we. Povan was so accommodating- I messed up our tour timing and he was able to squeeze us in later in the day, plus he made sure to ask about food restrictions and allergies in advance. Povan was fun, informative and knew exactly what we would enjoy. Food was amazing! Our favorite was the Kung Fu Cha and also the Roti-Prata. A must do for any foodie.
Fab private tour - can't wait to do it again...

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’.
