Our Chengdu Evening Food Tour Reviews

“My wife and I had the pleasure of joining an awesome, authentic eating extravaganza with Lost Plate. We experienced a wide array of Chengdu delights, learned a great deal about the culture and were totally stuffed by the evening’s end. If you want to try authentic Chengdu cooking at its finest you don’t want to miss this experience!”

“Lost Plate stood out because the guides are 100% local (not expats) – they grew up here, they know the city inside and out, and they rigorously search out, test, and compare the restaurants they end up choosing, selecting places that are authentic, best-of-category tastes, and a true representation of Chengdu. Lost Plate went above and beyond to plan a fun, authentic, exciting, accessible, and memorable evening!!”
