A must do in Chengdu
Jul 2021
This was a fantastic way to experience the great food culture of Chengdu. Our guide was very knowledge and shared his enthusiasm for the food we tried. It brought the whole experience to life. We will definitely do tours with Lost Plate as we visit other cities they operate in.

Fun evening filled with delicious food!
River was a wonderful host and guide with lots of knowledge & a willingness to answer questions about food and Chengdu in general. Riding in a tuktuk was a fun experience & we found the variety of restaurants/foods offered on the tour to be well-planned & delicious! River made sure everyone ate enough and that the level of spice was ok for all the guests. It was a really fun evening & we got to see some neat parts of Chengdu that we probably wouldn’t have ventured into on our own. Great tour that we would recommend!

Highlight of our trip
As the title says, the evening food tour, guided by Chino, was the best part of our long weekend in Chengdu. Would wholeheartedly recommend it, and suggest taking part near the beginning of your trip if possible. Chino was a great guide, and the food we tried was fantastic. Highlight was sharing a table and chatting with 3 aunties from Chongqing in the dumpling restaurant!

Excellent and enjoyable food tour
Such a wonderful experience! We had a small group of six, guided around Chengdu by River whose English was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the region’s food history. We were very full by the end and the final bar was great fun sampling various local wines! Would thoroughly recommend this food tour.

Amazing food tour full of hidden gems
Jan 2020
Olivia was such an amazing guide. She brought us to Chengdu's hidden gems, and made local food accessible in a way that would have never been possible without a local guide.

We even climbed up stairs, squeezed through a window, and had dinner in the living room of a family apartment!

This would never have been possible without Olivia and the Lost Plate Food tours.

Highly recommend.

Great food tour with great guide
Jan 2020
Great experience, we hade a night out in Chengdu and booked a food tour which took us to cool small places with great food. The guide was very friendly and gave the whole tour an extra spice with all the stories of the city, places we went and culture. I can warmly recommend this to anyone visiting Chengdu.

Really terrific tour! True Chengdu back alley experience! The only people we saw on the tour were locals...experienced dining as only locals would...We even went thru a window to a ‘local, back room’ dumpling experience. Our guide, Zheng Ming, was great! Spoke English like an American native and knew all of the best, locals only locations. Highly, highly, highly recommend! BTW...I never leave reviews. This one was so good I broke my rule....

Best food in Asia!
Dec 2019
Three weeks in China and South East Asia and we were not able to replicate the deliciousness of the food we enjoyed on this tour. From street stalls, a "climb-through-the-window-to-enjoy-the-best-dumplings-in-the-world" home visit to a high street noodles bar. The tour was worth every penny, as we would have never found half of these amazing eateries. The tuk-tuks were an experience and the end of the evening brewery expedition was the perfect way to end off. Leaving an opportunity for the families to go home and the youngsters to stay partying. Our guide was excellent and the booking procedure and communication was top-class. We even received a pamphlet with recommended restaurants, addresses and what to order at the end of the evening.
