Conceptually, the tour sounded great. However, Joe Poon spent much too much time talking about himself and his accomplishments. Plus, the food that was served was ordinary. We expected more from a "master chef".

Really enjoyed Joe Poon. The food was good and he gave an insiders guide to Chinatown. I've been looking for the insider scoop for years and he made it happen. Enjoy life and be happy!
