Hey HollyTX thanks for this superb review! We are so happy to hear that the two of you enjoyed the lovely evening with our amazing Abby! She is so passionate about the city and food right? And you are absolutely right that our tour shows you a different side of Shanghai that you would otherwise not have stumbled upon by yourself. ;) We hope to eat with you again next time!

You must try this! One of our best tours, ever - just wish we'd known about Lost Plate before this most recent visit to Shanghai. Our guide took us to 6-7 different small restaurants in the French Concession area, each with its own specialty, none of which we would have found

Hi MariaR13267, your review made us smile... it is so nice to know that you enjoyed the dumpling-making mini-class! Such hand-on cultural experience is always unforgettable. Not to mention the variety of food and drinks you tried along the tour! We believe one of the best ways to learn about the city is through its food ;) We definitely look forward to eating with you again soon!
