Three cheers for Pandian of Foodies Day Out of Madurai, India and the fabulous tour of all the small restaurants, food stalls, food carts and otherwise, where the locals know they serve the best food in town. He was an informed and delightful tour guide, who's love of the food of his home city is definitely obvious. Throw away all... More

India in general (and Tamil Nadu in particular) lends itself very well to cheap eats. As a foreigner, the problem is always finding the best spots. This tour solves that problem and does much more than that. Beyond the actual food, Praveena took us through dimly-lit alleyways, crowded city streets and to hundred-year-old dosai restaurants. And it wasn't just your... More

I can't recommend this tour highly enough. Absolutely worth the price. Our friendly guide, Praveena, had impressive familiarity with the food culture of Madurai. She took us to spots that we would never have discovered on our own, and ordered dishes that we might not have thought to try. Definitely come hungry, and pace yourself. There's more good food than... More

we spent last night with Pandian and enjoyed it a lot. he took us to so many different places that we would have never discovered ourselves. it is a great way to get to know the city from a different perspective. even if you might think it is a little expensive - go for it, you won't regret it!

This tour took me into places I would never have ventured into on my own, providing real insight into the food and culture of Madurai. The variety was fantastic and the guide was a great conversationalist as well!

We had a wonderful (and delicious) time with our host Srisundar on our Foodies Day Out tour this month. We sampled a wide assortment of "street" food, from actual street stalls to small local restaurants that serve "quick bites." It was a great opportunity to eat local, away from the usual westernized tourist traps and inflated prices. Sri was an... More

Don't be expecting haute cuisine or a healthy meal.. This is food indulgence the way the locals do it. You get a broad range, beyond just carbs (Expect a lot of it though). Sweets feature heavily too. Good way to safely sample street food from established, reputable vendors. A lot of useful information from Praveena, our very passionate and outgoing... More

We had a very nice evening with our guide Srisundar and another couple. Booking and pickup from the hotel worked perfect. We tried overall around 20 different dishes that night in approx. 10 different places (both Restaurants and Street Stalls). We covered a very wide range of food and learned a lot about ingredients and preparation. Without this tour we... More

This is a 'not to be missed' tour in Madurai. Mukunthan and his brother gave us a very special night in Madurai. Firstly, it felt as if we were out on the town with our best friends. Within a few minutes you feel as if you have known them all your life. The conversation and the places they took us... More

Amazing food tour. Srisundar is a lovely host who took us to an amazing variety of sweet, pungent, salty, astringent and bitter foods at places we never would have known about or gone to. Wonderful tour
