A symbol of Mauritius’ diversity and multiculturalism, China Town was once the most vibrant place in Port Louis, opening its door to all Mauritians. Despite the many challenges faced by the community, China Town has managed to preserve its culture through festivals, ancient customs, and food.
During the China Town Food Tour, our guide will lead you from the Caudan Waterfront to China Town to discover Chinese food in Mauritius. En route, we will stop at various local restaurants and street food vendors to taste Sino-Mauritian food, ranging from delicious duck to traditional Chinese sweets and tea.
Join us on this unique food experience! Let China Town fill your hearts… and stomachs 😉

Steamed, fried, savoury or sweet, there is something for everyone! Moving from small street food vendors to some of the best restaurants, we taste a variety of Sino-Mauritian dishes.
As we wander, we see the contrast between the changing faces of Port Louis and the old Chinese stores still standing their ground. Between our food stops, we visit traditional Chinese stores and societies that have stories to share.
With our bilingual guide, we learn about Sino-Mauritian food and cuisine. The guide also shares with us how Chinese culture, traditions and, of course, food have contributed to the island's growth and the Mauritian way-of-life.
