Thoroughly enjoyed the morning bento class. Instructors are great at explaining everything and then you do it hands on. Our class had 10 students and we worked in pairs, but we each took turns cooking our own dishes. I liked that we all washed our hands before starting - that was a good sign at the beginning of class for me. I liked all of the food we prepared except the spinach salad - too much hands on for me with squeezing the spinach and then massaging it with soy sauce....I wouldn't dare eat it after all that handling....but everything else was excellent. Very professional and clean studio and professional and friendly staff. Nice that you get a copy of all the recipes to take home. It's a little hard to find the place but worth it. Highly recommend it.

We came here during our honeymoon and loved it. We did the bentobox morning activity which was fun! The explanation was very helpful and you get to keep the recipe book. The food was so delicious. Especially the teriyaki chicken en sushi were great!

The staff was awesome. We brought our 11-month-old nephew with and they enjoyed playing with him and helping us out. The class itself was great and showed us a great variety of dishes. They even recommended a place for dinner and helped us schedule a reservation! Incredibly nice, knowledgeable, and fun!

We chose the bento class and were really happy about it.
We learned a lot as it was our first time cooking Japanese food even though we've been into it for years now.
The very detailed leaflet will allow us to make bento home.

My adult son and I really enjoyed our izakaya cooking class. Our instructor, Maya, was charming and personable. The class was "hands on" - we sliced cabbage, potatoes, and carrots, ground up sesame seeds and ginger, and measured seasonings. And we loved the food we cooked. A wonderful experience that we highly recommend!
