To see the place one has to understand the food culture too .The culinary tours are well , some sort of tours . Sometimes they just show some of the food varieties. The belpuri pani puri and pav Bajji of the seaside was tasty The next place was a shabby kabab stall Food was tasty but what impression does one take back with them.Then we were taken to an old ice cream shop quite clean .Icecream had fresh fruits .

responsible company. I was the only one who signed up so one of the owners led me around. Good variety of foods and knowledge guide. This tour is best done on your first day in Mumbai so you know what restaurants and food stylse to revisit.

This was a fun, educational, and tasty food tour that was a great welcome to Mumbai. Not only do you learn about the history of the different food, the guide teaches you about various landmarks in the city while walking between stops. I would recommend this tour to a solo female traveler, I definitely felt safe and comfortable walking around in the evening. I was nervous about walking back to my hotel across some busy intersections, so the tour guide actually gave me a ride back, which was super nice! My favorite foods would have to be the Persian vegetable rice dish (even though I was quite full at that time, so I took home the leftovers for later), pani puri, and the buffalo pistachio saffron ice cream sandwich.

The format was a progressive dinner. 7 locations with pit stops along the way to talk about the history of some buildings

The Amaze food tour of Mumbai is great, not only for the tasty and safe food but also for the wonderful guide-Dnish. Also the tour company was flexible and helpful. My sister and I booked this food tour through Tripadvisor (Viver), but got the date mixed up due to time change. I frantically called the tour operator-Amaze tour-and they were quick to respond and change the date to accommodate us. Then...we went to a wrong meeting location. Another frantic call and the tour guide came to us, instead of telling us to come to the right location. We tasted "bread dipped in various yummy sauce", a tiny crunch pastry filled with chick-pea which you eat in one bite-both of which I can't remember the names but quite interesting. Then we walked through a park to go to a street lined with street vendors and had wonderful dosa (Indian crepe filled with various stuffing). It was the best dosa we had in all of India. Then Dnish took us in a taxi to the best kebab restaurant where we had chicken Tikka kebab. Finally the K...Ice cream store by taxi again. I had mango ice cream which was a dream. He put us in a taxi to our hotel and we came home satisfied and full. Thanks, Dnish.

The tour was very interesting and covered a wide range of places and types of food. I was a little worried about trying street foods but....so far, so good! The guide was very informative. Be prepared for a good walk as well.

The format was a progressive dinner. 7 locations with pit stops along the way to talk about the history of some buildings or of Mumbai in general or of different areas of Mumbai.

ONE
Our first stop was at a place that serves Mughlai food which dates back to Medieval India during the Mughal empire. We had some kind of chicken curry thing that was so delicious! And some veggie curry that was unremarkable.

It was a dumpy looking place but it was busy. I don't know if I'd have ever walked in without the tour.

TWO
Our next stop was to eat some paan from a street vendor. I'd been looking at them all day, feeling like they looked interesting but a bit intimidating. They are who-knows-what wrapped in 2 betel leaves (always two), with rose petals, a bit too much sugar for my taste, and covered in some real silver.

The taste was complex with overtones of basil and mint (which were not in there...and I'd guess was the taste of the betel leaves), and intense rose flavor and smell. It wasn't my favorite thing to eat but it was interesting.

THREE
Our next stop was another street stand where we got "Mumbai sandwiches", which had beets, cucumber, and magic on them. I don't know what generated that deliciousness, but they were outstanding.

FOUR
We then walked awhile to get to a restaurant that served cuisine typical of the state of Kerala (in the south.) It was a fish curry with rice and these weirdly wonderful peppers. We were told the peppers were soaked in yogurt and then dried in the sun. They clearly tasted of fermentation but the flavors were complex - smokey, slightly fishy in a pleasant way (but I'd guess that taste came from fermentation, not fish), hot, salty....I desperately need to find these and bring them home. The guide is supposed to get back to me about these umami pepper bombs! Sooo delicious. If I can't buy them here, I must figure out how to make them.

FIVE
Time for a milkshake which was nothing like a US milkshake. For one, it wasn't frozen. For two, there was nothing in it (purportedly) but chickoo and milk and it was cold but not frozen (chickoo is some weird fruit and we got to try a bit of it. It reminded me of cherimoya or perhaps the taste if a pear and a fig had a baby.)

SIX
Our next stop was a restaurant serving Persian cuisine and we had some vegetarian pallao unlike anything i"ve had stateside. It had these tangy barberries mixed in and some homemade small bits of paneer.
I also had a cumin flavored soda there (acquired taste but it grew on me) and had a bit of ginger soda that made me cough for some reason (even just smelling it made me cough.)

SEVEN
For our last stop, we could see throngs of people outside. It was an ice cream shop that sells buffalo milk ice cream! It's a much fattier milk than cow and so the ice cream was dense. I got pistachio and saffron flavor. It came sandwiched between two wafers.
The line outside existed for a reason. It was amazeballs.

The Fort (neighborhood) Food Tour was wonderful. Yateen, my guide, provided details about the neighborhood buildings, history, and architecture while we walked from food spot to food spot. Some places were sit-down restaurants and others were food stalls or small outdoor food spots. Everything was so delicious and I was stuffed. Yummy tandoori chicken, Kerala fish curry, berry pulao and a fruit milkshake to just name some of them.

We booked the tour before we arrived in Mumbai and really enjoyed the tour, it is not only a food tour but also a bit of history about Mumbai and the different areas, building etc.

We tried a variety of dishes including tandoori, Chikoo smoothie (yum!), Bombay sandwich, Paan, Parsi cuisine and fish curry. The food was tasty and it was great to try new things although it would have been nice to also try more street food as most of the food was based in restaurants.

Our guide was really knowledgeable and his English was perfect. The only criticism would be the price was on the high side considering the cost of the food but I am glad we took the tour and would recommend it.

Had a great afternoon with the streetfood tours. Tried some interesting things and even visited the guide's own house. Would recommend this.
