Took a East Feast tour which was a great way to spend time with friends and combine their visit with food! Lovely food except for one dish which we all didn't like..apart from that highly recommended for something a bit different!

At one of our restaurants we leave the choice of dish up to the chef and it changes each week. I'm sorry this one didn't appeal to those who had it. I'm glad you still enjoyed the overall experience though.

The tours last about two and a half hours. Cost for the tour we did was $100 per person but there is another tour which costs a bit more. The price includes wine to complement the food.
