  • Min Pei 7 Jan 2018
    The entire lesson was very enjoyable. The teachers were well-prepared, fluent in english and also chinese, patient and teaches well. With a small class size, learning is made more interactive with the teachers and other students. Lesson was conducted very smoothly and the menu offered really delicious dishes. It was a great opportunity to improve one's cooking skills and to understand more about the food culture in Japan.

    Great afternoon cooking session. Got to ask lots of questions. The teacher had perfect English so we really got a lot out of the experience.
  • Siu Kuk 17 Dec 2017

  • Erick 26 Jul 2017
    Great food and teacher. Learned lots of techniques. Loved the small intimate class size.
  • ANGEL 9 Apr 2017
    Excellent experience. The course is worth for its price. The venue was in a very authentic traditional Japanese house and clean and tidy. Tutors are friendly and the atmosphere encourages you to exchange thoughts with people from different countries. Food of course is tasty and I have practiced it when back my home country. I would highly recommend my friends and family to join.
  • Tat Ching 1 Jan 2017
    The chef is patient as we have 2 kids and she gave some toys for my son to let him play. The instruction and recipe is clear and food is delicious. Recommend for those who wants to have a glimse of japanese cooking.
  • Sze Wan 15 Nov 2016
    This tour is highly recommended to whom is very interested to the Japanese culture, especially their cuisine. The teachers are very nice and friendly. We spent a great afternoon there. However, I think it will be better if everyone has their own cooking utensils, then we can make all the dishes by ourselves and don't need to make the dishes with someone else.
  • POH TECK HENDRIC 23 May 2016
    Great session learning different Japanese dishes. It was really hands on, which meant that we had to do everything from preparing the ingredients to cooking them. We were first given yukatas to wear, before getting an overview of Japanese cuisine. After that it was straight into the cooking as the instructors guided us from one dish to the next. We prepared a total of 4 dishes in pairs, while rice and soup were prepared in a group setting. The instructors were also really friendly, and constantly engaged with us throughout the session, making us feel at home. The best part of the activity was of course eating our own creations! Quantity of food was sufficient too!
