Chef Poon was delightful and fun. He shared his passion for the Chinese culture as well as his love of cooking. His enthusisam was infectious. Lunch was amazing. I will be back with other friends and family members!

I liked the diverse stops we made in China town- great for those who don't know where to go. I enjoyed learning of Chef Poons adventures and stories of the area he knows of through the years, cooking tips and Chinese herbal medicine through...continued

Although we had a rocky start because we could not open front door and after 15 minutes someone came down to look for us, our lunch food was good but was typically fried chinese food. Other then that Mr. Poon was a genuinely nice guy who took us...continued

Had anticipated a longer and more informative tour. Not much by way of "hard info" relative to China Town. Lunch was average and not much better than the average China Buffet establishments you see in various shopping centers. A section of the...continued

This was a bit of a hodge podge tour, but Chef was amazing. It was not a completely food oriented tour, which surprised me, but it did give me a better sense of what was around Chinatown. We went to a temple, a market, the fortune cookie factory...continued

Chef Joseph was very scattered in his presentation and really lacked focus. Very impressed with himself, listed a confusing array of his qualifications/experiences and seemed interested only in tangentially in members of the group. Would be...continued

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".
