Yay! We strive to present something new & interesting about the local food scene to ALL of our guests, where it is their first day in SH or they've lived here for years, so we're always happy to hear when a local expat discovers new dishes on our tour. We look forward to eating with you again!

What an incredible night it was. From a welcome drink at the pick up to an absolutely stunning lamb encore!! Don't even think about other option... Book with Untours, sit back and enjoy the evening. And as Kelvin says... "pace yourself"! Delicious!
