This was a great opportunity to get to know the indian way of eating! We were a fun and open minded group. We stopped at many places (restaurants, street food) and had typical Indian food. This gave us the courage to try (for us) unknown food for the rest of our trip. We just take the chance and taste what... More

This is a great tour to try Madurai's local dishes in a range of street stalls and small restaurants. The guide is very welcoming and genuinely enjoys interacting with the group about food across cultures

Had a fantastic food tour of Madurai with Praveena as my guide. Had the best idly I have ever eaten, light and fluffy. Learned what idly poda is and how it is eaten. All the food we ate was great. The rice idiyappam was also delicious. Did the tour on the first day of demonitisation and the lack of people... More

Even if the tour is expensive it’s worth it. Mukunthan showed us the variety of South Indian food. We started with a sweet called Halwa, then we had delicious idli and onion dosa at Murugan idli shop. Next stop was rice idiyappam, followed by kolukattai (sweet dumplings), sambar vadai and pongal at Adyar Anandha Bhava. The highlight of the tour... More

This was a really great chance to experience the streets of Madurai at night, which are packed with vendors or all sorts, energetic and dynamic. Plan some time for stopping in stores as well as just eating... The food we had was excellent and distinct, and the tour is really efficient (a couple of the small restaurants are themselves on...

I had a real good experience of South Indian fare with Mukunthan in Madurai. The pace was really good - wasn't rushed and we had quite a bit to eat. It was also good that he explained the meaning of the dish and how it came about.

We loved this tour and Ms Praveena, who took us on a magic carpet ride of gourmet street-eating of Madurai at dusk, and safely guiding us across busy streets, to wonderful tastes and places off the beaten path. Loved all the stops, as it was her personal tour of her city and its delicious secrets. Don't miss it!

Mukunthan Was our brilliant host for the evening. The food was beyond amazing but our host was great company and educated us more in one evening about India and its people and food than both our tours had provided. The places we ate we would not usually have given a second glance to yet these contain the greatest food experiences... More
