This study assessed tourist satisfaction with culinary tourism in Kutawaringin District, Bandung Regency. A quantitative descriptive approach was used to reveal tourist perceptions and the impact of food quality on culinary tourism satisfaction in Kutawaringin District, Bandung Regency. Data was collected through interviews, observation, and documentation. A random sample of tourists completed the questionnaire. The study sample consisted of 50 individuals who participated in in-depth interviews.

Lemon tea was found to be the most popular food item, while tourists rated the seller's service highest at 74%. Food hygiene received a rating of 71%; food tastes 60%; affordability of the seller's location 57%; food quality and promotion 46%; and food prices 40%, all with a fair assessment.
