Highlights
Shanghai food tour at night featuring regional Chinese cuisines
Stroll around Changning & Jing’An districts while sampling local food and spirits
Taste local dishes, including rice and wheat-based noodles, twice-fried bamboo, Shanghai’s famous soup dumplings, classic Sichuanese dishes, and a Cantonese fruit dessert
Small-group tour with a maximum of eight guests per guide ensures a personalized experience
What to expect
Greet your guide at a central, pre-arranged location and embark upon your exploration of Shanghai’s diverse food scene. Stroll through a residential area brimming with restaurants that are popular with locals, but hard to find on your own, including a family-run restaurant that has been in business for decades.  At each stop, sample several dishes that highlight the best of the region’s flavors, while sipping on amazing local beers, yellow wine, and spirits. As you walk, chat with new foodie friends, sip drinks, digest and learn about the area’s history and architecture.  Taste Shanghai's most famous dish, xiaolongbao (soup dumplings), at a local snack shop that has been serving up classics for decades at the evening’s culinary conclusion. Bid your guide and group farewell at a convenient location near the Jiangsu Rd metro stop.

Excellent food tour!!!
May 2021
We went on a UnFood tour as a going away gift for a friend. Patrick, our leader, was very knowledgeable and showed us a number of different local restaurants. Each one represented a different region of China and its unique cuisine. Patrick shared his knowledge of China and was able to answer all our questions. After 5 restaurants, 2 snacks and some “adventure food” we were stuffed!! It was a great night!!

Authentic food & locations
May 2021 • Friends
Thanks to our great tour guides Patrick & Lauren. It was fun to stroll through Shanghai and experience the authentic taste of Shanghai, Yunnan and Sichuan kitchen combined with short and interesting stories about the dishes. You took great care of my needs for glutenfree food. You were always present and attentive, but also gave our group the space to enjoy our time together.

Hi Mari - we're so glad to hear you enjoyed the tour and the gluten-free options on the route! It can be so tough to find good options, so we've worked hard to create a menu for our gluten-free guests. Makes our day to know it paid off. Hope you'll eat with us again soon!

Paul was such an amazing guide! We did the Speakeasy Drag tour and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves from start to finish. Paul is extremely knowledgeable about both the history of the venues and the cocktails and snacks that came with our tour. Highly recommend!!
Because it was such a great tour, we are in the market for trying their breakfast and Korea town tours. I'll be sure to check them out in other Chinese cities too, Thanks again to Paul and the Untour team for the great experience.

Great experience!
Oct 2020 • Friends
We had a great experience on our tour, and it was well worth the money! Our guide, Patrick, was very informative and relaxed. The food and drink was all very good and we were really full by the end. Even if you're living in Shanghai, like we are, it's tricky to find the these types of places and order since there are no English menus or English speakers working there. Highly recommend!

We’re so pleased to hear you enjoyed your time with Patrick. It's our goal to help all of our guests discover great authentic local eats, and feel empowered to go out on their own, so we’re glad to hear you were able to do just that. Happy eating!.

Great night of food and booze

A really great way to enjoy delicious food and learn a little bit of history about the city and Chinese food. We booked a private tour so it was a great way to hang out with a group of friends.

Yay! We strive to present something new & interesting about the local food scene to ALL of our guests, where it is their first day in SH or they've lived here for years, so we're always happy to hear when a local expat discovers new dishes on our tour. We look forward to eating with you again!

For a good time
Apr 2020 • Friends
Signed up as a fun activity with friends but was pleasantly surprised at how much I learned about the local cuisine as I’ve lived in Shanghai for over 6 years. Our guide Kelvin was not only professional and helpful but also super fun and showed us a great time around a bunch of hole in the wall spots I never would have found by myself. Food and vibes were consistently great the entire night, showed up high expectations that were definitely exceeded

Thanks so much for taking the time to review! We love when local expats join us and learn about a whole new side of Shanghai they've never eaten their way through before. Hope you'll come back and eat with us again soon in SH or Beijing!

Great tour, great guide
Apr 2020
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 who have been here a while looking to broaden their palette.

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!

AMAZING Night with LOTS of Wine!
May 2019
My husband and I were visiting our expat son in Shanghai for the third time and thought it would be fun to do a food tour. We deiced to join the wine pairing version of the night eats tour. We were blown away! Patrick our guide was hilarious and super knowledgable about the food and Shanghai. We had never heard anything about Chinese wines before the tour and we were very impressed with both the quality and variety of the wines. Our son, who has been living in Shanghai for almost 6 years was also very impressed with the tour. The restaurants were great and we felt super safe eating there.

Whether you are visiting Shanghai for a day or have lived there for many years I recommend you get a few friends together and take this tour! We can't wait to visit China again and go on another UnTour in Shanghai or Beijing!
