    Rajiv was an excellent guide. The selection of restaurants and choice of food gave one a broad perspective on Indian food. I also liked the history aspect that what I think of as Indian is a mixture of Indian, Pakistani, and predominately Bangladesh influences. I also enjoyed seeing how naan was made.

    Raj was so kind and full of knowledge

    As almost all Indian foods in Britain are extraordinary delicious, I want to know the secret of Indian food in London; and this tour turned out to be the best chance to learn, know and eat the nicest Indian foods!! Raj, our guide, was so kind and he told us many things, from how to buy at Indian supermarket to how to make traditional Indian foods. He also always tried to cheer us up! Thanks to him, I could talk with other participants easily (actually, I bought the Indian cuisine book one of the participant recommended me. It was very nice book!). I highly recommend this tour for everybody loves Indian foods!
