Great options for foodies to try a bit of everything. Some good places you can feel safe eating at. Not overly informative but it was happy and fun with a good guide. A nice way to spend a warm evening in Mumbai.
Mumbai's tastiest local foods

I enjoy food and I enjoy eating. I enjoyed tasting what the locals eat and I was not disappointed. The tour ended at a family run, home made Ice Cream shop and I enjoyed my selection of the Indian apple ice cream.

Well, this needs explanation. This was one of 6 tours we took in Mumbai through Viator, and all the rest rate 5 stars. This one failed dismally, but the way that Viator sorted it out and refunded our money rated 5 stars. They say that it is the way in which a company deals with a customer complaint that makes its reputation I cannot praise Viator enough for this. Yes, on the day, in Mumbai, we were disappointed and hungry - were counting on this restaurant tour!, but Viator did a super job in getting it sorted out once we had returned. Well Done, and Thanks.

Usually love these sort of tours but this didnt go well partly because they were more than 90 minutes late to pick us up and also Sam, the tour guide had a trainee/friend with him and was more interested in talking to him than to us. Very bad start when we werent picked up from our hotel lobby as promised. We waited outside for 45 mins and phoned the contact number many times and checked with the hotel for messages before giving up. Sometime later we were phoned by the tour operator who said that they were late because the night food places open later in winter so the tour starts later than advertised. When I said that they should advertise the correct time or ring us to change it, he became quite angry and tried to blame Viator for not giving contact details - said he had only just got our number. I pointed out that he knew our hotel and could have called them or somehow not left us stranded waiting for them but he didnt actually want to hear anything like that. We made a new time and waited outside again and they were only 10 mins late this time. The guide, Sam, arrived and introduced the trainee and we said we were happy for him to come too. Most of the evening he was busy talking to the trainee and wasnt very interested in us the trainee seemed to be more aware of the problem and often nudged him to point out things to us. The three areas we went to were also miles apart so we spent a lot of time travelling in silence apart from the guide and trainee talking to each other not in English. The food tour itself was ok but I had to ask to get information on anything other than the actual dish they ordered. I gave up asking in the end. Its fine if you have never had Indian street food before and want to try the basics like pav bhaji and masala dosa. If you already have a reasonable knowledge of Indian street food, you wont learn much.

This was an amazing 4 hour food experience in Mumbai. I ate at places where I never would have found or have even tried if I had found them. What I ate, I really have no clue, but it was very good, and most importantly very clean. One of my worries of eating street food was getting ill later, but I can happily report that this never happened. Sam was a great guide, explained everything and answered all of my questions and was a joy to be with for 4 hours. Sam, I hope you make it to South Beach! This was an incredible value for the money and I would totally recommend doing this tour.

Great tour guide and delicious food! The commute from verdor to vendor was a bit hectic, but nothing can be done about the traffic in Mumbai. Mumbai street food requires an iron stomach or you could lose a day. Book this tour!

We had a great tour with the knowledgeable Sam - sampling the best of the city's street food one late afternoon. He crossed off all the things we had on our list and more - catching buses and trains to get to Chow-patty beach for our first course, and stuffing our faces until we had to beg him to stop. I'd recommend this tour to absolutely anyone - veggies or meat lovers, kids or grown-ups, and to do towards the beginning of your stay. Even as a food journalist who's eaten street food all over the globe, your first street experiences in a new country are always a bit daunting as you learn the etiquette and language, but a few hours with Sam was not only a great experience in itself, but also gave us the confidence to try any street food that took our fancy during the rest of our stay.

This tour was an interesting experience and we recommend you try it too! The homemade ice cream by a more than 100 years old shop was absolutely delicious! Bhel Puri was also another favourite for me. Our guide Sam zoology student speaks good English and was knowledgeable. As we are travelling during the monsoon season, we brought an umbrella which came in handy.

There are a few local food tours of Mumbai on Viator and we chose this one because it had a pickup from the hotel rather than a meeting point. This was a good choice as our guide Samir took us from the hotel to the eating areas with a local bus and train which provided a great introduction to the city transport on our first day. The tour company was really easy to deal with, communicated really well through Whatsapp and we were able to book another tour directly though them, made changes we wanted and kept in touch after to send us photos. Samir was a great guide and made the tours very enjoyable. And the food... Oh wow, we really enjoyed it all and were certainly not hungry after.
