Alex our guide was very informative and interesting - he knew the history of the place and could offer an insight into the comings and goings of the Chow Kit wet market. My big concern is that I think it was way too expensive for what it offers. I did not feel it offer "value for money", especially as we... More

Great way to spend a few hours. Our tour only lasted 2.5 hours, but I think that's because we were the only people on the tour so we went faster. Given the length of tour, and price of food we ate, I think it's quite expensive. Nonetheless we had a great time, saw lots of interesting things and ate some... More

Mimi, our tour guide, did a great job introducing us to the area and its historic vs current day relevance within the KL sub-culture. This 3-4 hour tour cost $62.50... More

We had an awesome food tour in KL with Mimi. She took us off the beaten track to try various foods we wouldn't have experienced otherwise. She knew a great deal about the area as that is where she grew up, the best knowledge is local! We tried various Malaysian dishes of Indian and Chinese influence and most were delicious.... More

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and she had lots of fun stories and insight knowledge to share with us! We got to see all sorts of local foods and markets including an assortment of fruits I wouldn't have known how to eat otherwise, so that was fun. My one complaint was the price: it was 68 USD...

We went with Mimi on The Petaling morning tour. Everything was great. We tried lots of new food that we would not have tried on our own. Mimi was a wonderful guide and lovely to hang out with. We would highly recommend it, especially at the beginning of a trip in Kuala Lumpur.

Simply Enak is a fantastic food experience, our tour guide Mimi went out of her way to ensure we had a great time. Mimi checked with us regarding any food intolerance, taught us how to read the menus and encouraged us to try different cuisine. We ate Malaysian, Indian and Chinese food, all very authentic. Highly recommended to anyone traveling... More

We were taken on an amazing tour by Mimi through the less touristy side of KL. She is obviously very passionate and knowledgable about her city and her enthusiasm is contagious! The food was great and there was sooo much of it! Make sure you bring an empty stomach and an open mind - don't hesitate, try it all!
